Guess it's just a matter of time til any electronics go Prop 19 (up in smoke).

Lol.

Do we have any more takers on the Victoria trip?? I can guarantee there will be quality barley pops cracked open after racing. That alone will be worth the trip!

That track is "AWESOMELY" tight.


Peter,

What kind of stuff would you like for me to dig out. I just got some Gene Husting DVD's on ebay. It has some IFMAR worlds 1/12th scale, some old Antioch Nationals off road stuff that Bodine attended. It also has some Nationals 1/12th scale stuff. Cool stuff.

If Brian brings me the sheet I can scan them and re-print them in vinyl, to preserve the undoubtedly awesome old skool typeface I'm sure they were printed in I can reproduce them in any color you want.

I have a TOJ that Ellis gave me a while back. I will never let go. Not nearly as nostalgic is a few P35 Nissans, another 12th staple product.

I have both styles of Raceway Hobbies (in italics) and Raceway Hobbies with the checkers. And yea, it's old skool font. One sheet is white print on clear against a cream backer which might be tricky to scan. I have some partials that are black print and then it will have to be re-nested.

That might be pretty cool.... again.

Brian- That paint scheme is actually kinda cool, would be awesome on a WGT body me thinks

Curry- I knew you would post something like this hehe. In 24 years I'll post up a pic of some of the "pro" bodies I have saved and hopefully people will appreciate them in the same way! Very cool.

Default Well Done Seattle RC Racers

Regarding the letter to the city council I asked club members to forward last week. Our impact as a club has been felt. Thank you for the time you took.

Here is a link to Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn's own web blog.
