2024 Petersen Shootout - Day 3

Up early, Larkin and I had breakfast at Katie's Country Kitchen in the hotel. Jack, Larkin and I rolled from the hotel about 10 am [88 to 89 to 50]. We made a short stop to visit with Morgan, Daniel and Lee in Placerville; Clem was sleeping. After dropping Larkin in Folsom and going through a drive-through to get some lunch, Jack and I were back in Carmichael about 1:30 pm.

I had a nice time. It was great to have Ben and Josh in our foursome on Friday and Saturday, respectively. I loved riding with Jack on Friday. I always enjoy Larkin's company.

As I told the boys last year, the tournament has changed since Larkin and I started going. In the beginning, it felt much more intimate than it does now. There were some really interesting evenings in the suite in the first couple of years.

The size of the group explored from 65 last year to 85 this year. The group feels chaotic and disjointed. It is disappointing that they skipped making the first timers tell a joke. I miss the camaraderie that used to take place in the suite. It will be interesting to see if Larkin and I decided to continue to participate.
