•Check the Event Schedule to know when stuff happens. 
•GO TO DRIVER-GEAR TECH (near HQ or Tech) ANYTIME during Tech hours. (PUT ON AND WEAR your full safety gear, including the head/neck restraint--don't make us dig through some sweaty-ass gear bag)
•GO TO DRIVERS-LICENSE CHECK (at HQ) ANYTIME during Tech hours. Show your valid, current, unrestricted street license to receive the required Lemons Driver wristband. (Legit hard cards only--insurance requires us not to accept photos or copies.)
•GO TO CAR TECH AT YOUR ASSIGNED TECH TIME. Bring your car and COMPLETED tech sheet; assigned Tech times are linked from the Event Schedule one week before the event.
