I talked with Jeff last night. We're going to punt. The current forecast is calling for rain and thunderstorms. Not the thing for an all-volunteer crew.

We'll get out there, soon.

Todd, do we need to bring any tools/equipment to work on the drivers' stand Saturday?

Thanks,
Robert

I'll get with Jeff and Tim tomorrow night to inventory our tools. The parks dept. is loaning us the generator we used last time.

For yourself, gloves, eye protection, and a hard hat if you have one.

I met with parks staff this afternoon to get us squared away. Materials and a generator will be on site tomorrow morning. Me, Jeff J., and Tim will be there at 7am to build a drivers stand. Come join us.

A great job to get the drivers stand up. We put up the big timbers, rafters, and we blocked the rafters.

Next time you see them, thank:

Jeff Johnson, Tim Cook, Ken Vannice, Mike Clifton, Robert McIntyre, and Jake Danilchik. These guys made a huge effort on everyone's behalf.

1855 South 136th Street – SeaTac, WA

Just to the West of that.

Pretty sure the classes will be close to former outdoor programs.. with the only difference is 21.5 instead of 25.5 for VTA/USGT

But who really knows... only a chosen few are in the know... I think was posted that first sanctioned race is penciled in for July 9th ish.

Come to Magnuson Community Center on Saturday and ask Todd.

I've spoken to my counterpart with the parks department. He had a look-over this morning and passes on a "Great Job!" to the build crew. I'd like to thank Jeff and Tim particularly for working all week at their trade and then joining us on a Saturday for more of the same. They really led the charge and helped get it done.

For my part, my shoulders are still scraped and bruised from walking those top beams up the ladder. Those were some heavy lifts!

Parks will take the roofing from here. They will put up the plywood sheeting and install architectural roofing left over from another project.

Our next scope of work is the timber railing and wire panels. With the ECC next week, look for another work day mid-April.

Feel free to post up your enthusiasms and dreams of racing. There are some obvious elements of the coming program: 1/10 EP touring car in its three main iterations--Stock, Mod, and Scale Spec--will be on the program. That can't be a surprise to anyone.

The rest is still very much up in the air. There's no reason to make decisions on some things until we have to. We still have hard work to do, and anticipation of future possibilities is a big part of how I stay motivated. Now is the dream time. Don't count anything out!
