Leave to Jack to come up with a new format of racing. Maybe this is just what slalom needs!
I'm in. Where do I pay my entry fee to secure one of those 48 spots?

That is great new to me whom been pretty much out off racing this year. I hope to be back between the cones in 2010. The USD is prefered currency right now so who knows. I loved it last time I was in Morro bay.

moved to fall?

Jack, do you want to post the update to this? I think you've moved this to Fall 2010 and it is now a boardercross yes?
