I understand they did it different this year.  Instead of the Instructor riding along, they used a "lead / follow" type of arrangement. 

How did you like that?

it was good
i personally like having an instructor in the car with me
so my husband put his life in his own hands and went with me
some of the concepts are easier for me to be discussed as i'm applying them... and by discussed i mean he suggests something from the passenger seat and I yell NO I DON"T LIKE IT to his suggestion .. it was an amusing in car video

i also personally wouldn't want to be a rider EVER with someone on the track.. so lead follow makes the most sense.

Both candidates are fine folks with depth in autocrossing.  I have known them both for decades and autocrossed with them. Marcus has a little more experience at this level in the club, abd Pat has been doing a lot of grassroots work in the trenches for years, so he knows what's going on. He's at MidOhio and other tracks for most of the GLDiv races.  I don't think you can go wrong with either of them.

The better question is who is the best to help move SCCA forward?  Secondly, do they have the patience and intestinal fortitude to navigate through the organization and issues?

Remember, the SCCA is not a national organization with licensed "franchises" as local clubs.  The SCCA is a federation of independent clubs (the regions) who agree to follow a common set of rules and operating procedures provided by the SCCA National Office. 

The National Office, BOD, and national program leaders face challenges with moving the club forward into new areas as each individual region tends to have their local interests at the core.  Sometimes these interests align with what is best for the sport overall, sometimes not.  And to be fair to the regions, sometimes the direction National wants to head has a negative impact on some of the regions.

This is not necessarily a bad thing; it's just that it provides a challenge with advancing ideas and thinking that require change.

Definitely fun. Would have been nice to not be stuck in novice group with probably the fastest car there, but that's the risk of sharing a car. Morning was a bit painful but once everyone figured out how to let others pass, the field spread out a lot and it was fine.

Recovering from the PDX Friday and working the weekend, thats a lot for this old boy. The PDX was fantastic. Thanks loads to THE VOLUNTEERS, WORKERS AND Dave Brown! Well organized, relaxed and two hours of seat time! The fog in the morning was a bit wild but the weather was perfect after that. Everyone behaved and lots of courtesy on the track and the paddock. OVR ROCKS!!
