You build it soccer mom.. and we will use it!! lol..

On a side note, I don't think benny or kevin realize June 17th is fathers day.. That date will change.. We tryed that last year and even though its fathers day, the women were still in charge of them that day!! lol...

Also, I did lock another date.. June 3rd.. Cronies Trophy race.. We will also have a wing eating contest! Many prizes. Also working on a dunk tank.. Should be a good time.. Oh yea, and we will have trophy girls for that one.. So Shane you should get to work on that podium!!

Talking

Get me a deal on the Lumber! Ive already got it drawn up!! Do I need to submit the Plan to the County?? LOL
Im thinking 3 staggered tiers approx 2x2 with a max height of 3ft so we wont need railings.. Of coarse 2x2 would mean the trophy girls would be nice and close. Better put a call into my cousin for ya justin!!


Im sure we can get Ken " the Joey Chestnut of wing eating" Barnes to take pictures of the days winners to post on the web site every week!!

There will be food, door prizes, raffles, silent auctions, custom St. Jude bodies for raffle. Also we are working on a Dunk tank for everyone to get Ryan in the water!!! lol.. much much more!!

This will be a points series also. So class winners will get awards! We are working very hard to get all the details worked out for the race dates. But please, everyone put those two dates on the calendar as we are Racing for St. Jude!

We have a contest for anyone and everyone!! Race Em is changing the track this season.. Changes will be made as long as spring weather permits.

So, attached is a basic layout of what we have already. The number one thing that must change is the Front stretch super cross jump. The corner berms must stay. Other than that, let your minds run free with jumps and stuff.

Contest rules:

1. Must be a readable print! Preferably something drawn up in Paint.

2. Corner berms must stay. It is not easy to change the whole track. SO try and keep it a little easier on the track crew.

3. Drawings must be submitted by March 15th 2012. ( Submit to [email protected])

4. All drawings will be voted on by our board members. The top 3 designs will then be put up for a vote for you guys/gals. The one with the most votes will be our winner.

5. The winner will get a Free Club membership for the season. And bragging rights saying they designed Race Em R/C's Track!

Any questions please feel free to ask. Lets get the pencils on the paper and make a great track for the Rockford area!

Don't forget about all of our big races this year! Be sure to put the St. Jude race dates on the calendar too!

How about some cool elevation changes? I know you want to keep the track surface at a good angle for runoff and dont want any pooling of water. They could be put closer to the drivers stand, plus it will be easier to judge that way.

I don't plan to run SC this year so lest see some 2wd and 4wd buggys this year .
