The one day of rolls this week started with a parked car on the course that couldn’t be towed2 followed by a 10 minute delay due to a truck coming onto the course to pick up a crane from the Scaife construction.
Apex: New driver in Pheonix came to a controlled stop during their first roll due to some wildlife on the course. They were pushed up into the chute and finished the roll safely. The rest of the day went quite smoothly for Apex, it was exciting to see a large group out again!
CIA: 4 out of 6 of CIA’s caped driver/buggy combos are already at max carryover for the semester. Nothing else to note for them! Smooth day with some full hill 2 push-offs.
Fringe: Fringe seems to be continuing to take things slow this year, with only two buggies out this weekend. Rumors of a new build are floating around, but we are yet to see anything out on the course just yet!
PiKA: During their first roll of the day, Banshee came to a controlled stop due to some deer on the course. Other than that, it was smooth sailing for PiKA.
SDC: SDC started the day by sending two of their buggies down with about 8-10 bags. These were two new drivers who had tough times making it around the course last week, so, although they looked a little silly, it was still a good thing. Later in the day, Vanity lost a wheel in the chute, and the driver was extracted. EMS checked them out and everything was okay!
SigEp: SigEp continues to take it slow with just one buggy out on the course this weekend. No issues!
Spirit: Spirit had a strong day up until after their last roll of the day when one of their buggies began to have braking issues. The safety chair had a quick chat with the team and everything was settled.
