To chime in:

As Brett stated, I was "volunteered" to work a corner at NHIS last year.

This is a great opportunity for anyone considering signing up for a
Driver Education event but still a bit apprehensive about committing. 
Show up, work a corner, hob-knob with fellow club members, beg a ride
with someone, and catch a few rays if the weather is nice.  The corner
stations are some of the best seats in the house.  It's a great time,
and you'll get a good idea of how these events are organized and what
exactly happens at them.  Even if you already know that you want to
drive at an ACNA event, observing at a school before signing up is an
excellent way to prepare.  From the driver's seat, the importance of
recognizing flags and their meanings immediately cannot be
understated; flag for a day and you'll know them cold.

See you there.

Just curious if any listers are signed up for the NAAC NHIS event May
15-16(Monday/Tuesday)?  I believe there is lots of room for yellow
+red students, might be for green as well (not sure) if you're not
signed up yet and interested.  If you have any questions about the
event, feel free to email myself, Ray Tomlinson, Peter Schulz, or
Chris Miller (the event description is off the club website-

We also have an "announce" list (one way, very low volume- maybe a
few emails a month tops) if  you're in the area and would like to be
keep posted on what the chapter is doing, etc (we have a monthly
dinner, monthly board meetings, and a bunch of social events
planned).  There's also a "discuss" list for discussion on anything
chapter related...that's also fairly low volume at the moment; maybe
a post or two a week.

Web signup for both is here:


We're looking for flaggers- experience preferred, but if you don't
mind coming Sunday night to an informal training session, it's not
required (it's not rocket science, but we need to cover some safety
things to cover, the club track operation rules, and what all the
flags mean).  If you are signed up for the event and have any family
members that might like to tag along and have something to do,
flagging is perfect!  Last year we had Mark Swanson's father and Tom
Mullane flagging for us (both unexpectedly when flaggers didn't show
up) and from what I understand, they loved it, even though the
weather was rather lousy.  This year we're in mid-May instead of
"hey, it might snow" early April so the weather should be much more
pleasant :-)

  Tom even wrote a newsletter article about his trip up to NHIS to
check it out!  Tom was curious about "what these DE things are all
about", so he came up Sunday mid-day, hung out with us during tech
+registration, stayed overnight, took a ride with an instructor or
two, and flagged at a corner for a bit in the morning.  He was signed
up for LRP within the next week!
