Default Cherry Valley

I talked the city of Flowood, Ms into building the first Indoor Off Road R/C Race Track in the US and I run it. We celebrated our first year being open December 1, 2011. Lamar and several of the guys from Southhaven have visited our facilty and I have spent hours on the phone with Lamar. Guys, you have something here that every city in the US would love to have. Lamar has worked his A__ off for you and if you live in the area, get involved. Help him. I am very fortunate to have the city and 196 members. It takes people volunteering their time to be successful. If you want to see this be successful, Lamar cannot do it by himself, get involved, you will be glad you did.

I wish all of you the best and cannot wait for you to open so I can come visit. It is going to be super. Keep up the good work Lamar and Good Luck to you Robert as well. Robert was the first one from the area to come visit us at FRC. www.flowoodrc.com

Due to reasons out of our control. I regret we'll be putting off our first race until April 2012. Sorry for the delay.
