WHAT WAS AWESOME ABOUT THIS RACE?
For a first time race, I thought it was really ran well. A lot of moving parts once again when ever you involve off-site parking and I thought the shuttles were ran very well. Packet pickup was quick and efficient with parking an issue as well with what might be the first ever drive-thru packet-pick-up. The post-race party was excellent as even though I was freezing and Laura was freezing, I was quite content drinking beer, eating brats, and listening to great music. It was a party atmosphere and it meant to serve as a kick-off to the Packers home season. A great kick-off it was.
WHAT WASN'T SO AWESOME ABOUT THIS RACE?
Especially when a race has off-site parking, you need to have somewhere where people can bring an extra shirt, a jacket, post-race needs, etc. I would have really appreciated a gear check so I could have brought my phone for pictures, a couple of bucks just in case (Would have toured the bomber they had, that's for sure. Especially since it was like one my Papa flew.) and some warm clothes for afterwards.
