I do look at it Tracy, just missed this yesterday.

I meet there on Tuesday to do some prelims with the County. Once we are established I will Hit them up for a cover, so who knows. I am still looking for an indoor facility as we speak and am going to get with the City Of Longview and see if they have any idea's.

So lots and Lots in the works for next year

Right on Chris!

You guys will be racin in style !

A city park track is really the best way for several reasons.

I wish we had one around here to go to ... I would close up and go club racing

There's not much incentive to own and opperate an rc track really... god knows there's no money in it ... but theres a lot of work, liability, commitment, etc, to do one worth a crap

Hey make sure they put at least 1 wheelchair drivers spot, I could advise on this if the city needs advise from the horses mouth.

Long Live NW RC

Looking for volunteer interested in learning to RD "race direct" for very little pay.

Involves calling races through PA and knowing the timing soft and how to set up the races, i'll teach you. Must be dedicated and have the time to learn and be at the track on race days.

Looking for preferably non racer person to only focus on RDing.

Should be at least 16 and able to get to our races easily through summer.

Get a Futaba 3pk and your ready

You think your boys are going to let you have all the fun or what?

I think I heard Cody say something about selling every truck he has to buy a buggy ... he said I want to race those, refering to the losi 8.

M11 is great, just making the point to get a radio with the goodies

I have not ran into any geenies granting wishes yet, so the arena covers still on hold if you do ... send her my way.

Btw, Lucy weighs 16oz from 13 and Charly is 13oz from 10 ... their eating little machines

Default Like WEEDS...

They Grow like WEEDS don't they....little tiny, then poof!! I went to a wedding the other day and the place is off 180th. they had a wedding for their daughter and are also turning their place into a wedding facility for people to rent ....anyway he bought a huge tent....commercial grade like the ones at a circus or a sportsmans show. It measured 170 feet X 330 feet. When I came to the wedding and seen the tent all set up (he didn't have any sides on it) I thought that this would be way cool to stick over a RC track, I have to ask him how much it costs.......

So now that the weather has pretty much dampened our spirits for dirt, let's head on down to SIR this Sunday.
