Understood and I am not taking your input as being negative.
These are thing that we all must know prior. I would be upset
if you were not sharing this information to better educate myself
and everyone else that is interested in the practice sessions.
I think that John Kelly is "right on the money" with everyone who is
interested in the idea of a practice session should all be at the next

Okay, I get that part. And that is easy...as long as someone keeps track.
And I guess there are enough incorporated clubs which can legally rent
sites, pay insurance, get equipment, etc., etc.?
I don't mean to be negative, I'm just asking questions.
Sometimes when an 'older' person asks such questions, the 'younger' folks
react like this old person is trying to say No, you can't do that. It's sort
of like you're reacting to your parent's opinions. That's not the case. I'm
just attempting to point out there is a lot of work to putting on events,
even practice ones, before the event happens.
If anyone is serious about practice events (and all events are practice in a
sense), remember it takes a higher level of commitment than showing up,
changing tires, and running.
