I getting the paperwork filled out to start a forum called iowarctracks.com. It will be a forum for al tracks in Iowa that want to particpate. I contacted Curt but I haven't heard back from him yet, but I invite all of you to join.
My local track is closing and this also means that our message board will down (http://www.websitetoolbox.com/tool/mb/bjames
) and this gave me my idea to make a central webpage for all RC tracks in Iowa. I see some users of that forum are on R/C Tech's site as well.
This would be a website where racers from all tracks in Iowa could get together to talk about the local track, and also talk about RC news, setups, etc. Some tracks in Iowa already have a website, or even a forum, but for the ones that don't this gives them a good way to give their track more coverage.
Basically, what I'll do is create the forum and add your track under the "Iowa RC Tracks" section. Then your racers can join the forum and talk amongst themselves. A lot of times people don't realize what tracks are open in their area and they have to rely on word-of-mouth, or websites such as ROAR (http://www.roarracing.com/region8.php
) or RC Car Action magazine (http://www.rccaraction.com/info/rctrack_srch.asp)
If you agree to join our message board, then all I ask in return is that one of your Race Directors join the forum. I'll make them a moderator for their track so they can monitor activity in their forum. This way they can make sure that people act appropriately, and you can even list track news like upcoming races and even points for your season championship. The funds to finance this site will be coming out of my pocket, and I won't hold any liability as to what is said on the site, so that is why I will need your help monitoring the chatter on your track's forum.
I'll post more info once the site is up and running.
