Thank you, we are correcting, adding and adjusting things regularly. By me visiting other tracks, is enabling me to see different building styles, track features and any thing else that goes into building a good quality track.

It also allows me to see how other tracks run their race program. All these things will help me better our track, our club, and our race day. Considering the fact that this time last year, I knew nothing about R/C, hell I didn't even know Altoona had a track, our progress is steadily going forward.

I have dedicated myself to making the Altoona Raceway a great place to race. Along with the help of my members, we will achieve our goal.

Default Donations for the Race

Some people have PM'ed me in regards to making CASH donations:

Certainly, CASH donations will be accepted. But I will be unable to accept checks. I apologize for that. Altoona Raceway has an account in good standing, but here is my reason.

We are going to have media coverage. TV, radio and newpaper - are covering the event. I am keeping a running total all weekend, to monitor how close we are to our goal. Our goal, in case you do not know is $5,000. Here is where the check policy comes into play. Of course there will be racers there, but there will be spectators also. Some spectators may decide to donate. I obviously can't run Tele-check to check their validity.

For example, say a spectator decided to donate $500, and I announce the updated total, for sake of example, our new total would be $4100 with their $500. Media coverage reports our donation total is $4100, and spectator's check bounces, we are now at $3600 and short.

I hope everyone understands this policy. So, if you plan on attending, plan accordingly. There is an ATM less than 4 blocks away from track though.

It makes me wonder if I should have just joined one of the other tracks if that is where everyone is racing.

I really hope that some people show up and race next week for the big charity race, so far I am really disappointed in not being able to race.

Rob, I do not need to Identify myself, you know exactly who I am, and trying to act like coming to you will resolve things. We all know your attitude of "my way or the highway", but I am not going to here and cause any more "drama", this will be my last post. All I am going to say is, you dont see NASCAR canceling a race to go watch indy cars, and that is in fact what you are doing, imho. Lastly, what ever happened to the oval track and electricity? Just false hope to try to suck people into joining? Well, it worked on me, and I personally will not be back!
