Taking the GT PP1 to my second Autocross event at Lone Star Park near Arlington, TX on 7/28. The first time was pretty much a write-off since 4 of my 5 runs were DNF for missing something on the course, apparently.
After your second DNF or CD, you should've and should, ask for someone to ride with you to help you clear the elements.

Actually my first run was with an instructor, then my remaining runs were solo and I think there was a gate that I forgot about and didn’t realize it until the results got posted online that evening. Next time I’ll take a couple more runs with an instructor and also check at the trailer after my first solo run to make sure I got through ok. Will definitely also study the course more thoroughly going forward.

I'm going to suggest drawing your own course map during one of your later course walks. You'll have it for last-minute reference in staging, and chances are that the portions that you have a harder time drawing will be the ones you have more difficulty finding your way through. Don't do just one or two course walks, and do take advantage of any instructed novice course walks even after you've been autocrossing for a while.

Your own map has the advantage over any organizer-provided maps because it'll be drawn the same way you as an individual think. You'll find that you don't even have to spot all of the cones on your paper, and you can do things like using lines for the outsides of Chicago boxes.

FAST Autocross Open Event in Lakeland FL 7/27. This will be my first Autocross. I've been Googling what to bring and what to expect. I think i'm ready. Hopefully all the back road hooning I did as a young'n translates into some car handling skills!

Is ECR supposed to open soon? I was at the last event in October before it shut down but I thought it was supposed to be open by Aprilish. I used to get construction updates but haven't gotten anything in a while.

SCCA has multiple events on their schedule at ECR, so I'm hoping so. Fun track, and close-ish from home.
