This would be the thread to use. The neat thing about having our own Canadian forum is that we can start new threads within it. This would be especially helpful if you have an up coming race to promote and want to keep comments and feedback about that race. Individual clubs could have their own threads as well, if they want.

Default Nationals

A whole bunch of information has been added and will be added for the next 3 days to the Edmonton Nationals site http://members.home.com/rccar

I suggest everyone checks it out. This is shaping up to be an awesome race! A lot of people are helping now and we are getting things together in a hurry.

We had a few donations so it looks like we will not be loosing money. But I want to be clear to everyone (to avoid complaints) that the event is VERY VERY expensive to host. For example just renting porta-potties is $450! Not to mention the other expenses such as trophies, speaker cables, track repairs and additional boards, table rentals (for radio impound etc, etc, etc.)

Anyway - we are doing our best and can't afford to do everything we wanted to. For example we wanted to get a large tent for everyone to pit in but the cheapest tent was going to be $1200 for 3 days!!! The whole race is only rasing 2500-3000 dollars. It will be a great time for everyone and you will have LOTS of fun. I only ask that before you complain you think first and remember that wew tried to keept he race fees as low as possible due to the other expenses (Roar, tires, motors etc.) Also remeber that Paul and I want the event to be FAIR and EQUAL for all drivers.

Anyway - check out the updates. And please review your Roar rulebooks and the drivers manual I posted on the website before the event. The tech sheets are [posted - I suggest you tech your car well before you come (this weekend.)

Cheers,
Chris.

Post 2001 Kamloops Fall Classic

"Allrighty then".....Now that I have figured out where everybody is now hangin out!!

Due to a club decision, we regret to announce that this years, Kamloops Fall classic will be run as an Off-Road race only. It was also decided to take advantage of the hot weather we had two weeks ago by re-sealing the On-road track, thus leaving it without lines. A new track layout will be painted in, in the spring. We hope to see many of you out for our Annual Fall Classic Race. September 8th and 9th. Entry forms are now available from myself or at Interior R/C.

Q-Points, best 2 of 6 rounds of qualifying (yes, I said 6 rounds!)
As per the Roar rule book for calculations and tie breakers.
