News from the summit
Hoopa is right around the corner. Don't forget to sign up. The Tsewenaldin Inn still has six more rooms available. I have ordered weather for the weekend to be in the high 80ís so bring your bikini and sunscreen and come hang out with some fantastic people who like to go fast!
If you have not attended the Bogus Basin Hillclimb before the one thing you will see that is different from the other hills is the accommodations offered. At the top of the hill are the Pioneer Inn Condos and this year we have reserved 10 condos. The condos will sleep from 1 to 8+ individuals so if you like to get cozy you can double up and save on the cost. To make a reservation call 208-332-5200 and tell them you are with the Bogus Basin Hillclimb Assoc. If you would like to preview the condos visit their website at www.pioneercondos.com. Of course if you prefer to toss up a tent or bring your motorhome you are certainly welcome to do so.

What’s Your Life And Well-Being Worth?
This will be pretty direct. Hill climbs, like many motorsports
events, entail risk. You sign a waiver, and you’re basically on your
own. Even if you don’t drive beyond your abilities, such as mechanical
failures, like broken axles, can happen. In an instant, you can change
from a driver into a “passenger,” with no control over where you might
Many organizations, such as SCCA and CACC, are requiring a HANS or a like device of a different manufacturer, for motorsports events. My personal opinion is that it will be only a matter of time that NHA requires these devices as well.
Yes, we’re talking about a $600 plus expense. But, what if you went off course and sustained serious injuries, which might have been prevented by using a neck restraint device? Do you want to play with your kids/grandkids from a wheelchair? Or worse? Not if you can help it. In reality, this is pretty cheap insurance.
Do you buy a “Starbucks” at the drive through every day? Kick that habit, prepare your coffee in a thermos, and you can probably save enough in less than a year, to buy the device of your choice.
We have been lucky so far.
