DirtyGirl's off season...

Fall/Winter 2005-2006:

Dirty Girl finds new ways to get dirty!

WELDING: how was I supposed to know you need to weld to race vintage? My winter's adventure in welding school has been facinating. The elemental nature of welding enthralls me - the heat and sparks and smell of hot metal. TIG emerged as my favourite welding process, but each new metal I try challenges my abilites; mastering TIG will be a lifelong process.

INDOOR KART RACING: you have no idea how much fun this is until you try it - the illusion of speed and all the thrill of competition - it's just a hoot. O.K., I know, it's 4 wheels, but it's a great deal of fun and the cheapest way I know to get to practice your standing starts too! The '05-'06 Season was hotly contested, with 5 drivers finishing within a handful of points. After the final endurance-format race night, Nuno A. emerged as the season winner, with Paul P. a close 2nd. The other top-5 drivers in close contention included myself, my vintage endurnace team-mate Michelle, and Owen. Watch for Nuno racing in SV Cup this summer!
Stay tuned for 2006/2007 Karting season info., coming Sept. '06.

The WROAR Ride: Least dirty activity, but enormously satisfying: I'm working again this year on the organizing committee for the WROAR Ride - an all women's motorcycle ride in support of the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre / Multicultural Women Against Rape. It's an all day event open to all motorcyclists and motorcycle enthusiasts, featuring a group ride for women only, as well as exhibitors, entertainment, demo rides and more! Look for the WROAR RIDE booth at shows, and visit our website www.wroar.com for more information. The Second WROAR Ride will take place on Sunday June 11th 2006. Keep an eye on the WROAR website for updates and more info.

BOWLATHON only slightly dirty activity, but a great deal of fun.
The 2006 Bowlathon raised over 100,000.00 for the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre / Multicultural Women Against Rape, and the WROAR Ride team was a proud part of the 2006 Bowlathon. If you'd like to participate in next years event, visit www.trccmwar.ca for more information.
