Default New location

We have the opportunity to actually make this new location happen. The address is 5811 Hwy 51 N in Horn Lake. Basically at the corner or Hwy 51 and Nail Rd. We are planning on going out this coming Sunday 11/13 to drop the go cart rail down to surface level. We will also be cleaning up a bit. We will also be having a meeting to discuss which direction we want to go, so if you are a paid member this year and want a say in this please show up. Most of the paid members were there yesterday and we are real excited about having a permanent place so we don't have all the necessary setup issues we have had in the past plus this is a real great location with rest rooms and possible concessions. It also has lights for night time racing and weekly practice.

So, is this new location a former go-kart track?

Don't you know it!!!! Man, if there is anybody there that would do 8th scale, I would definitely be in for bringing mine with me next year. Heck, you might even get the Whitings to brings theirs and man, will that be a show.
