Funny but I didn't know that.

A general meeting with all racers who are interested in racing at Floyd Bennett Field. This way all the problems can be hashed out and solved before the season starts. Do this and success is guaranteed.

Don't do this and not only is failure an option, it's inevitable.

That's not bashing, that's constructive criticism.

Guys gals ladies and gents. It had been said before and I will say it again here. A place is going to be found to take in our needs to facilitate the meeting. Again once this place is positive we will then announce the date so that all concerned can attend to voice all concerns. Matters will be taken care of and as far as I am concerned Failure is NEVER an option and that has nothing to do with constructive criticism that is more that my philosophy it is my way of life and as far as OUR club is concerned should be yours too.

It is time that people recognize that with all that has been accomplished it is time for ALL to appreciate what we have and learn to respect it. If by any means is not enough for you all learn that if you stand for nothing you will fall for anything. Our accomplishments will not be in vain nor shall the sacrifice of the sweat, funds and politrics that we have had to play to attain the status thus far. So rest assured the meeting is eminent and should be productive and positive!

Guys and Gals. Don't hold your breath for a meeting. Dictators don't hold meetings they just dictate. My personal opinion is, Fanatic Racers will not hold a meeting prior to the season starting in Brooklyn. There gonna hold some races first and try to get a few grand in there pockets. When they see the turnout is really low they will then have a meeting trying to save floyd bennett racing, (only thinking of themselves). By then it will be too late. So as long as you guys are prepared for the Weed smoking, men peeing in the bushes all day, racing in the dark because the qualifiers got started so late, the list goes on. Lets just let the season start off in brooklyn with the same guys who were in charge of racing in floyd all the previous years.

The sad part is, this is how many of the racers feel. I'm just one of the few, who have the balls to talk about it. Keep in mind i'm not just a guy hiding behind the computer. (like many people on these sites) I have and will continue to race all over the country. My picture is in the avatar, so you can put a face to my screen name. Floyd bennett field has excellent potential but they need help that there not willing to take on for fear it will interfere with the money they make holding races.

A GOOD PLACE FOR THE MEETING WOULD BE FLOYD BENNETT FIELD IN THE RYAN CENTER . ALL OFFICIAL CLUBS HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE THE BUILDING FOR MEETINGS . I HAVE BEEN TO A FEW AND THERE SHOULD BE NO PROBLEMS . OPENING DAY IS COMING SOON AND ALL THE NEW RACERS NEED TO UNDERSTAND WE ALL WANT TO RACE BUT NEED SOME PROBLEMS FROM PAST YEARS TAKEN CARE OF . THE RACERS HAVE TRIED TO MEET WITH THE CLUB AND TALK ABOUT THEM BUT NO RESPONSE . MAYBE EVERYBODY WAS BUSY AND FROM RICKS LAST POST HE IS WILLING TO HAVE THE MEETING FOR ALL BUT IT DONT TAKE MUCH TO ORGANIZE ONE LETS GET IT DONE .
NEW LAYOUT AND SOME NEW INTERIOR BOARDS WERE SOME THINGS THAT NEED TO GET STARTED NOW .
