How about a track event to go with it?  Or, perhaps a sport
rally (this is a very brisk TSD event using pro Rally style
tulip diagrams and no gimmicks or traps)  Either of these
could be arranged for a very minimal participation fee.  I
know many folks last year were on a short time frame for
Pikes Peak as they drove a long way. If there were enough
interest and you folks could spend an extra day then I'm
willing to  check into some other activities.

If it were to be the last year then, all the more reason to
go, And the parking last year was really the icing on the
cake. Think I'll bring a warm parka next time though.

Steamboat IS a great event. I have only made it once due to
scheduling. I WILL be there this year and I understand
we'll have lots of visitors from around the country. This
is truly a unique experience in a wonderful location. 
There is even a 90 meter ski jump there...anyone want to
try replicating that old Audi ad? :)
