So are we doing anything on Monday?

Is RCP moving or just closing completely? There was a lot of cars there all this week but the store front was disassembled and being emptied.

Iggy....keep us informed as much as possible on the Awase track as it sounds interesting and we could be racing again. Who is running the show? Anyone from the past attempts?

Nothing Monday, John is busy, but I want to crawl or sail if you are free.

RCP is no more.

I got a call from Uehara-san, who I believe is the guy with dreadlocks. He said that he has been to Courtney. Whoever he is he speaks really good english. His friend is working on building the track.

The LadyBug Circuit (Bios) was run by a Uehara-san as well, but his English was not so good.

As for something this weekend, We could do something. Not sure what since both the crawler and boat are in pieces. The crawler would be easiest to get up and going I imagine. I'll check it out this evening.

Got a new coworker that just checked in. He has a 5b and doesn't know a good bashing spot for it. Any suggestions.

Since Bill left I think me and Jon are the only other ones with a 5B/T, and I'm trying to sell my SC-bodied 5B.

Igy and I still have ours. Mine is currently set up for sand and run at Torii beach. Bill? do you mean Ken? It can be run at the Hill, but its a bit small there. I've run it out on the grass on Kadena by outdoor rec.

Crawling this afternoon at 430 at Toguchi...sailing on Sunday

Well,the new proposed 1/10 outdoor track is going to be in Kitanaka, about 1 block south of the 329 Comprehensive park entrance. They are supposed to mark off an area about 60x60, put up a fence, add power outlets, get lane markers, and bring in clean dirt. This is part of a renovation to a building, and is supposed to be at a point where we can throw in a layout at the end of March. I told them if they don't get clean dirt, it is not worth doing, so we will see. It would be nice to get some help. This will be a pay to play facility, much like RCP was.

Darn. I was hoping the track was going to be big enough to run 1/8. Time to start looking for a 1/10 buggy or SC.
