We made some progress this morning on a yearly schedule. I have the holy schedule pad in my hand actually. We have tried to include a couple of Sundays a month for electrics. Some of these will be electrics and Nitros. The next Sunday race will be August 9th. Signup at 12:00, Racing at 1:00 PM. Gates open at 11:00 AM. I will make available a Web page with the Master schedule in a day or two.

Score, nice job John! this will really help at least me be able to attend more races. Organization should lead to fewer 'can't run a class today so lets practice' type of days.

Thanks to all that showed. We hope for a better turnout next Sunday. The track was dry at 11:00 AM. We had great weather and 7 World GT cars with six drivers.

(Note that Doug Powell has tooled up and shipped out a customer set of nerf wings based on my updated drawing. There are now four holes for the outer body post to fit a variety of posts and body shoulders. These were put in by hand on the prizes. [email protected])

Default race track

Guys, I'll be the one to start this. Mike has put a ton of money into this facility, not just for the worlds but for our use as well. Todays turn out was pathetic, and not enough people put their input in about today not being a good day. The last thing i want to see is all of us lose the ability to have this world class facility anytime we want it. Lets do our part to support this track, the management and owner. I am willing to do my part here but we need some more participation from others. If sunday needs to be the day, I am sure they will accomodate that to bring in revenue. After a turn out like today i am starting to understand why Mike turned the upstairs "carpet track" in to a ball room. At least they have a full house there twice a month.

Congratulations to all! I hope to make it next week. I have been extremely busy at work to the point that I have barely read the forums or finish my CRC GenX10.

See you soon!
