There are 4-6 good large 4' by 4' drip pan/oil catches - whatever you want to call them. I'm only going to get 3 for now. I can bring them up to Courtney after 3 PM tomorrow. Also, there is a metal table there with NON-folding legs. It is free also! I will grab it and take it.

Paulie, I know you were asking about a gas powered leaf blower... Just got home from the Kadena BX and they actually had Weedeater brand gas powered blowers. $84.95 a piece

That's not bad at all. I wouldn't mind springing for one if you guys think it'll help...or do you think it'll just create a bigger dust ball?

These are the rules I plan on posting on the freq board...any other suggestions?

The Hill RC Park at Camp Courtney Okinawa

FREQUENCY BOARD RULES

1. Racers using 2.4 Ghz systems do not need a frequency fob.

2. All other racers must take the frequency fob and place on the antenna on the controller for the duration of use.

3. If your frequency fob is gone you must change frequencies by:
a. Changing crystals
b. Asking if the first driver can change crystals
c. First come, first choice

4. Please replace frequency fob before leaving the track area.

5. In the interest of Safety DO NOT operate AM/FM radios with out frequency fobs!

6. If your frequency is not listed on the board write the frequency number and band (xx.xxx/AM/FM) in the area below in chalk.

Change FOB to something more recognizable, ex Frequency Ring. Remember there will be kids out too.

Change to "while transmitter is on" or something. We don't want someone holding on to the ring all day.

Change to "upon leaving the drivers stand". Again, we don't one person holding on to it all day.

Also, did you leave a place on the board for them to write their names? This would help when things get crazy.

****OFF TOPIC WARNING****
Does anyone know why my yahoo email got kicked back from all the kadena.af.mil accounts?

I thought fob was recognizable...but can do

Change to "while transmitter is on" or something. We don't want someone holding on to the ring all day.

Would rather have the ring held on during the time that person is there, all day or not and have them change crystals in order to run. In reality it would push to have everyone get 2.4ghz systems.

Also, did you leave a place on the board for them to write their names? This would help when things get crazy.

Yes, when they remove the ring there is a box on the chalk board.
