Keep the ideas coming, maybe a something that will help will crop up.

where oh where could we possibly setup a indoor track semi permanently??
something like what NORA has going.... then we could have paid daily practice... could start earlier on saturdays... maybe split up classes between saturdays and sundays... even have 3 or 4 track changes in the season. I do realize $$ is the problem with that idea... and i am aware im not saying anything that hasnt been said before.... i guess what I am sayin is, maybe we should step back, take a look... realize what we have is amazing.. then continue rocking on in true SRCR style....

It only works cause it's in Burlington, all you new guys haven't gone through all the heartache of tracks coming and going, it's sad they can't stay afloat. Be extremely great flu for what we have and to have Todd who put way more personal time in this than he should! And Kyle for Wednesday nights, that's the best practice, tight track with less than perfect conditions, makes for an easy drive on the smooth

Could go on and on with names of tracks that no longer exist, just gotta keep telling the people responsible how thankful you are lol

We should throw a party for Todd and the comp board, or at least get that a cake or something

I made it over last weekend for the first time and I gotta say everyone there did an awesome job. I was really surprised at how fast the track got setup and torn down. Todd did an amazing job keeping everything running nice and smooth. You guys are lucky to have the number of people willing to setup and tear down.

We also setup and tear down each race weekend. We have a whole day (friday) dedicated to practice and we practice until we are too tired to any more (2-3am). I usually have 2-3 guys that will show up and help setup. Several times its been me and one other guy. And it makes for a really long day. So be very thankful for all those who volunteer and especially those who put so much time into organizing and doing all the behind the scenes stuff.

See you guys at the next saturday race!

"When I was in England, I experimented with [E/Juice cigarettes] a time or two, and I didn't like it. I didn't inhale and never tried it again."

but seriously, they aren't allowed on airplanes and that means Hangars... and Gyms too !
