    Thanks Rick - that's exactly what I've been trying to say,but I seem to be struggling to make it clear.

      Hey, I am "elder" this year (65) -- does that mean I get more respect from my competitors? :P

          Absolutely certainly most definitely without a doubt..........just remember "more" is a relative term

            Hey I am 65 in a few days and agree that when you have a 130+ drivers that it only makes sense to give us old guys and gals the option to skip shagging cones. As mentioned there are some folks who are not "elderly" but have physical limitations that make it necessary that they be assigned work that better suits their needs. I have found that most people are pretty open (privately) when discussing their needs but this can complicate the job for the COW. For the BCCC registration we allow drivers to select "other job discussed with COW".

              I guess I could chime in here... I am "somewhat" older.

              Personally, (and I speak for Pat too), we do not want to be just sitting around
              waiting for our turn to run. We would much rather be helping out.

              That being said, we also prefer to do "jobs" which do not involve chasing
              after cones...... Start, Grid, Scanning, Timing.

              As I also offered.... we're quite willing to do the Novice driver meeting and Course Walk.

              (As for my age... you don't have a calculator that goes that high... or older than Dirt)
