I've tried ideas to augment the income of a health club style rc track, such as vending machines and rental storage lockers. Vending machines could contain such things as snacks, drinks, rc consumables (traction, spec tc tires, etc). Assuming that there was a $75/m membership dues, 50 members in current standings, $15 entry fee for a weekly held race that 40 or more entries could be sustained x 4 times a month, and that it could be supported year round.... it could be doable. I think that it would take at least $10k to open the doors, I don't think that money would ever be recoverable. But those are ideal situations I don't see as real. But I am willing to put forth the info, you never know who's out there listening that may have a better idea to add and someday.....

I would justify squeezing $75 (or maybe a little more) out of the monthly budget for a nice place to practice and tune. Also willing to bet the community at large would pitch a few dollars in for pit table lumber. I hear we have some electricians, carpenters, and other savvy fabricators around too. We even have a Cabinet God.

Hey guys,

I can't make it to the track tonight. I have a medical condition, and some of the symptoms have been flaring up these past few days. I thought they would have passed by now, but such is life, right?

Anyway, if Brian "Slapmaster" Bodine doesn't see this message, can someone let him know I can't make it? He was kind enough to offer me a ride home, but I can't make the race after all.

Peace,
Samwise

Hey Ritchie,

I'm headed down 0-dark:30 Saturday morning. Alex is coming with me, too.

Rock on TZGP!
