On Saturday, March 7, we’ll gather in Fort Wayne, to learn what’s new, share best practices, and network with friends. And with more space, we’re adding even more sessions, including an all-day Time Trials track in addition to the annual full-day Solo Track! Get trained as a Road Rally and/or Solo Safety Steward, too! And numerous National SCCA staff will present on a variety of topics, plus excellent GLD members are anxious to share the National Convention sessions they presented last week.

We’ll also provide dessert treats, bottled water, and some beer (& BYOB, too).
