If you requested a "special person/group" we tried to get everyone togather.

Those that didn't request anyone special... you guys can sit thoughout the main area.

For those of you that made it in, but after the "cutoff" we had... you'll be in the "special" area

I'll direct everyone accordingly on Friday.
Will the "special" area have "special" lubes & oils?

Just whatever you put on your 1/12 dampener tube.

Oh, wait, maybe some Fister Ball Lube as well.

Also, since you're from Cincinnati, you're probably familiar with Kentucky jelly. Bring some of that. It's sort of like Naval Jelly, but not quite. Compare them and see.

Default NO ROOM AT THE INN!

Once again, a big thank you for your support of this race. At this point there is absolutely NO ROOM to squeeze ANYBODY in.

If you registered, you're in. If you did not register please do not show up expecting to be fit in, it physically cannot happen. If you have friends that want to come, we cannot fit them in either.

We will be posting heat boards later this week for confirmation.

Thanks
Brian

Just make sure you don't lose to CarbonJoe. Nothing more embarrassing than that.

Hey now! I think we are all time about even.

This is the type of race that makes me miss racing.

Heat boards will be set up tonight and posted tomorrow

I am sorry to say Mr. Goetz will not be in the A, B, C, or D qualifier..

I'm basing it on how well he has performed at our club races, I don't think he won any. You may want to put alittle effort into your R/C car program Mr. Goetz...

He has been working on his stuff non-stop. I hear he has been working on his car as well.

what's the entry count so far? you know we're getting another ~ 25 entries 'day of'. at 4.5 hours a round, anyone running one class is nuts. in fact, i might have to run all 3 sedan classes just keep the juices flowin'.

Already registered racers can add classes. No "new" entries, as we're out of pit spaces.

See, people think I'm nuts for running multiple classes. I would be bored silly running one class with 4.5 hour rounds.

If you want to keep your juices flowin', check out the freshly painted restrooms.
