I need someone to help me at the Laguna Seca MotoGP.

Here's what i need:
Somebody who wants to go the Laguna Seca MotoGP and get treated like one of the guys who sponsors the series. (Trust me, they get treated REALLY well).

You'll get a "god pass" for the event and (within reason) a cool pair of Sidi boots, or "our cost" on a Spidi track suit, high-end jacket, etc....

Here's what you have to do:
Be in Monterey on pre-GP Thursday morning to grab the key to our rental house. Open the house, go to the grocery store and buy the stuff we need for the weekend. Our group will show up Thursday afternoon.

For the past two years Jerry (sandcityflyer) helped us out, but he flew off to Florida with his new honey (good for him!).
We need a new helper.

The house will be filled with Sidi and Spidi folks (mostly Italians). The beds are all spoken for, but we still have couches and floor space available, if you wanna crash with us and hang out with us.

Anybody interested?

PS: if ya get there early enough on Thursday, you COULD ride your bike up (with saddlebags) and make a few trips to the grocery store, rather than drive a cage.

PSS: Jerry (who, by the way had a world champ road racer as the best man at his wedding) told me that it was the best experience he's had at a big race. "I was treated like the almost-famous all weekend!".

anybody?

Will you have anyone holding umbrellas? It can get really hot shopping for the groceries.

Carlton already has some Sidi boots. I don't really know how good a shopper he'd be for humans , will there be any dogs there?

It took a few meds and almost a biopsy, but Gromit's eye cleared up on the last try. Then he swallowed a large chunk of rawhide bone and almost had to be opened up. But they're all doing great these days. Recent pic from the non-moto thread:

They probably like the fresh mountain air better than they would taking care of a bunch of Sidi reps down in Monterey anyway. Glad there well and Gromets eyes okay.
