Hi Warwick,

While I joined St Ives around 2006 I suspect you may be confusing me with Thomas who is still with the club.

Cheers, Andrew

Hi Warwick,

You still got those B4's and BJ4's?

A few people like to collect them now a days and both probably squeeze into Outlaw class at the vintage racing meets.

Feel free to come along to a race day (if we can get a few dry weekends) and say hello if ever in the area.

Cheers,
Thommo

After one beautiful weekend of fine weather, things appear to be resuming the present normal. But we will press ahead with optimism and plan for racing at St Ives this coming Sunday. Will update situation closer to the day.

Romsey and I have spent a few hours this afternoon trying to remove some of the sand/ dirt that has been washed over the track and trying to reduce some of the mold developing on the carpet. So grip should be better, if the rain eases. But as that is not the forecast, we will have to wait and see. Noting we have had a couple of decent days just gone, when I was expecting a lot more rain than we got. But the ground is pretty wet so we will update as tomorrow (Sat) progresses re possible racing come Sunday.

So far there has been little of the expected rain so the track is pretty dry and should be good to run tomorrow, as long as the rain stays away.
Will look to take entries around 9am and get racing by 9.30am.
Will update if this changes, but hoping to see you all tomorrow for a race day.

Unfortunately the rain came just as we had everything set up and the track ready. And the rain stayed for about an hour or so with constant drizzle. But a few hours later and things were dry again. This weather is really a pain.
Anyway, next club day is planned for Sunday the 13th Nov. This is now 3 weeks away due to 5 Sunday's in this month.

The weather looks to be great, right up until Sunday.
So, we will have to see how things progress re any possible rain come race day.
The track should be nice and dry with this recent run of sunshine.
Will update closer to the weekend.

Last Sunday started so promising but then the rain came early and ruined the fun.
Some members have asked if we can look to hold a race day this coming Sunday (20th Nov) which is not our usual race weekend but as we haven't race for about 2 months, we are willing to try anything to give people some track time.
But we will need to know if people are available and interested.
The weather looks promising.
So let us know view email, Facebook or RC Tech if you would be keen to try for another race day this Sunday (20th).

We have had a number of people indicate they are keen and available to race this weekend so we will go ahead and plan a club race day for this Sunday the 20th Non. Usual try to take entries around 9am and get racing by 9.30am.
Special thanks to Drew who has only been to 2 club events (and Sunday was only a short time due to the rain) but he gave up his time today to make some repairs to the landing ramp of the central table top. And he can't even make it this Sunday. What a champion. Sunday will be warm by reports. The café should be open (hopefully) across the car park but bring drinks for yourselves.

Looking good re a go ahead for a club race day tomorrow.
Great if a few people could get there a bit early as I can't make it at all this weekend (still dealing with a family matter) and so there will be a need for people to help blow down the drivers stand and race control area as well as the track, paint the lines for heats and finals, set up the race control and speakers etc. Thomas will bring the computer, transponders and loop cable but this all needs setting up before 9am to be able to take entries at 9am and get racing by 9.30am.Hope everyone has a great day. Weather looks promising.

Thanks to everyone who came along last Sunday for a club day to try to beat the weather.
This Sunday is our usual race meet weekend so we will plan to run a club day on Sunday the 27th.
Will see how the weather proceeds but good to get some idea re who will be available to come along.
Will confirm closer to the weekend but presently things looking positive.
