You should definitely bid. It might be too cold still but is there the possibility to set up a heated tent in the parking lot?

Yeah, quite a bit less. Even with a man pile we'd be at ~60 in the main space. We were able to temporarily get the space next to us for MHIC which worked out okay aside from the unexpected lack of heat.

We have a nice track and spectacular lighting, but the space itself isn't really conducive to a big event without some overflow.

I imagine we'll probably just continue to promote and try to build upon the success of our own race. But giving on-road a proper nationals is one of those RC bucket list things, you know? I'll mention it to the guys.

I really hope Omaha puts in a bid.

Also, maybe I'm being a bit of a princess, but I'm not sure I've got it in me to pit in a 3x2 space again for 5 days.

You wish it was 3x2! 3x1.5 is more like it. It made for good camaraderie!

Omaha is a great facility, I'd go back there for sure, but:

If you guys could get the space next door again you could definitely do this.

Some reasons for hosting the 2014 Nats at 5280:

1. awesome track
2. best lighting anywhere (great for geezers)
3. cool crew that knows how to run a race
4. entertainment by Ficco

I've said my piece
