If you still can't see it then tell them to turn more lights on.

lol, I am just old. My 8 year old kept telling me she could see them fine, but then continued to roll over on the one after the tabletop ski jump. That is really the only one I had trouble seeing because it was a little dark right there. I would say 90% of the track was lit really well. I am just holding on to my first 2 qualifier results, because once the sun went down, I knew i was in trouble. All in all, I was pretty fun. I liked the layout and I got to hang with my kid and watch her get better and better. It was a good time. I was amazed all day watching cars hit the triple. Sooooo much lift. I meant to get the Mod amain on video, but forgot...

Its a bit of a pain when you can't see especially with new gear

I seriously probably need to get my eyes check.... I keep putting it off. Is it wrong that I would only want glasses for RC racing?

Default Club racing

Ricky/SRS......If club racing is being extended until the move how about going to 'winter hours' like in the past for Saturday? I hate being cold and when the sun goes down my mind tells me it's at least 20 degree's cooler even if the mercury in the tube doesn't move. The next few weeks are surely bringing even cooler weather and the current layout is a blast-anyone else allergic to the cold?

I'd be more likely to come out for day racing - better traction, better lighting, and steadier hands. Also nice to get done early and still have an evening.

Saturday forecast - high of 57, low of 37
