They use an AMB system but they do not have house transponders. I have talked to Doug about this and I believe we could arrange something for members who do not own personals.

They typically run 8th scale buggy and truggy with little SC showing. That's ok because they are more than willing to accommodate the class. Jerry claimed some of their jumps are too much for SC but ours are too so no worries. I believe we've all seen the track images and I don't see any concern with running SC.

They do not have electric but there is a generator on hand if needed. Once again, sounds familiar and we can manage.

Sunday is their race day as well. General schedule is 10-1 for setup/practice and racing immediately follows. I forgot to ask about costs but I hope Len can fill in the information gaps. We also can talk to him this Sunday as he and another are visiting our track. He may even have a few others tag along.
10 to 15 bucks for registration. Ran it tonight, nice track! Hope we can get something going with these guys. Very good guys to deal with. They are like us at Thumptown, trying to get people. This could be a good thing and it's not that far for any of us I dont think.

That's the hope and attitude of most here I believe. The distance isn't that far in terms of RC racing. I think for those of us that really enjoy this hobby, we should be very thankful for good tracks close in vicinity and take FULL advantage of it.

Well put Brett.

I look forward to meeting Jerry and all the guys and see if can get something going between the 2 tracks and get more people involved in the sport.

It's on display at the Hobby shop for a while. When i first got the email with that logo I knew where it need to go ! Superstars in Blossburg has it saved if any one want's any,They are around $6 each they can do inside or outside of the body, The logo's on the body are on the inside, only out side ones are the 442, Wellsboro,PA, Traxxas one, Racing and of course the decals that came with the body. looks awesome in person

Default Chicken BBQ

Chris - Were you able to find anything out about the concrete blocks?

I got the tickets printed today, paper wise only thing left is to make an excel spreadsheet for their information. I do have some numbers that I'll be calling tomorrow to see about BBQ pits . If there is a race held Sunday "pray it rains " we should discuss dates, prices and get selling from there. Also Sunday we can discuss some other ideas that will benefit the track and its racers!

Thanks everyone for your help, I am hoping we can get a great turn out for this and hold another one before the year is over!
Helen.

I talked to him the other day and haven't heard back from him, I will stop tomorrow and see if he has any yet.

You said it chris!! Thankfully a little rain . Hopefully it's enough to replenish our water supply for a bit. Hoping I can come out Saturday to lend a hand with the track after work.
