You can use any USB cable but you will still need the Castle Link adapter that then plugs from the USB cord into your speedo control. If you don't have one I will show you either Friday or Sat if your at Bumps what they look like.

I don't think we have a snow day planned if it snows. My guess is we would need a ton of snow to cancel since we have guys from NY, NJ and MD and if they are here to practice on Friday and don't see any changes because of weather for Saturday.

Racing is kinda like bowling in are area...........then never ever cancel matter what the weather does.

Lets hope it don't snow so you can make it up. Be great to have you up with the guys again as it has been roughly 3 weeks. Its fun when the crew comes up.

Watching the forecast now. States south of PA are going to get the brunt of it. Those traveling up from the south may have problems.

Snow would only be appropriate for a Christmas Race...

Were racing - the highways are pretty much always clear - and being right off the highway makes it even easier.
I just got done printing the plaques and while I was waiting for the printer I cam up with this.

Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the land
Not a rc’er was silent, certainly not Brian Reigle;
The cars were hung by the front door with care,
In hopes that the classic soon would be there;
The racers were nestled all snug with their transmitters,
While visions of A-mains gave them the jitters;
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just headed down the road without even a map,
When out on the parking lot there arose such a clatter,
I sprang open the door to see what was the matter.
Away to the front door I flew like a flash,
Tore open the box’s and threw up some cash.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a brand new track, I let out a big cheer,
With a crazy 1/8 scale driver, so lively and quick,
I hadn’t been this excited since I discovered my D!(k
More rapid than Mike Gay his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them all lame;
"Now, Jason! now, Bobby! now, Justin and Kyle!
On, Chad! on Brian! on, Josh and Dan!
To the A mains we go! That was the plan!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!


See most of you tomorrow - and the rest on Sat - doors open at 8:00 am - breakfast served

They are calling for 1-2 inches here on Saturday throughout the day, beginning around 4am. I can't imagine the highways will be bad. They are not calling for any snow north - most of the snow will be south. What I am thinking is the snow will be done by the time we are done racing and the roads will be fine by then, even for those of you that are south.

The track layout is awesome. Tomorow is going to be some great racing. I doubt the weather will have much impact until much later in the day, so no one should be afraid to make the trip!
See you all at 8AM
