      That is sick!

      @Pete, I feel like I am just bugging you with questions but is it possible to do a head to head with a non turbo 2.5? I'm not very good at judging pull on videos.

      lol a nikon? a camera/lens brand that went so far beyond the "standard" optics from cannon and similar, that the lesser owners (not nikon owners) tend to forget it even exists...

      lol.. j/k.

      safe to assume you are a big cannon guy? my grampa has ALWAYS been a nikon fan, so i went with it. plus, that way we can share accesories and lenses, easier

      Oh, I thought it was a disposable camera...

      Yea, I'm a big Canon guy lol. I do love Nikon tho. I went with Canon because I had more friends with Canons who would let me borrow lenses

      To make sure we can fit everyone in the picture, I will park in the back row and you all can squat down in front.

      same... most friends and family are nikon as well... but i do have to admit that on the "lower end" (500-999) cameras, cannons tend to be better.

      Sowo security

      Quote Originally Posted by 91cabster View Post
      From the beginning we wanted SOWO to offer a unique experience for the VAG community. We started with FREE admission and T-shirts/giftbags and thousands of dollars in giveaways. Now we are implementing large scale security measures to minimize theft and damage.

      On Friday night, you will have the opportunity to park at the show site which is gated and will be locked down after everyone has turned in and will be lit by 8-10 generator light arrays from dusk till dawn. We will have security guards overnight and no one will be allowed in until 6:00am Saturday.

      As you know, any large scale event has the potential for theft. Every attempt is being made to provide you with a more secure place for your car. However, we still need you to look out for yourself and each other. If you have something on your car that can be easily removed by an opportunistic ****bag, it can be easily removed by you. Most incidents at VAG events involve wheels and wheel accessories. If you opt not to park in the secure area, do what you should do anyway....wheel locks, put valuable stems/centercaps inside the car.

      We strongly encourage you to go ahead and register and park Friday night, so Saturday morning all you have to do is walk in and wipe down your car. A shuttle will be available to take you to and from your hotel Friday night and Saturday morning.

      As always, we appreciate your enthusiasm and support for SOWO and we look forward to your cooperation in making SOWO 6 the best ever!

      Mountain Cruise

Everyone wanting to attend should be at the new event site Sunday morning at 10:45am. Turn by Turn directions/distances will be handed out. Please remember, this is a cruise, you cannot win it! We will follow a police escort onto the main drag at 11:00am. Speeds will be moderate and if you should get separated, do not try and speed to catch up. Most turns will be controlled by local police and you should be able to proceed unimpeded throughout the cruise. Most of the cruise is on two lanes and you are advised NOT to pass!

      We will be joined by the police where the road briefly becomes four lane to ensure that everyone stays safely in a single file. If you wish to drive fast do not join this activity. If you want to drive more aggressively you are encouraged to take some of the other roads around Helen at another time. Please be safe or this popular event will no longer happen!
