Entered the 100th Chicago - Mackinac
Well, today must be the official start of the 2008 racing season for Reboot and our racing team. Today we took advantage of being one of the 426 invited competitors and entered the 100th running of the Chicago - Mackinac race. We entered almost as soon as the invitation hit our inbox so we expect we were one of the first. The web site went down fairly quickly afterward (it came back up pretty quickly) so I guess a lot of other people wanted to get their entry in quickly. The race committee had warned that they might have to restrict the total number of entries so the early one enters the higher one is on the list.
