We're starting setup at 8, racing probably by 11 or so I'd guess. Probably 4 or 5 heats since we may run euro truck today.

We're making really good progress towards getting things going but we could really use a few more folks. Summers are busy, but taking a few weekends to race is really important in helping to achieve our goals. Its important the we see a good cross section of folks out at least a couple of times. Its easy to punch the keyboard but remember that if this is going to succeed we all have to put in a little effort. Everybody can make a couple weekends now to make sure we can race a lot of weekends this winter.s

I'll be scheduling a group get-together.
  1. some elections. We need a club secretary and few other officers to flesh things out. Unless there are objections I'll stay on as semi-fearless leader and Peter Anwar as treasurer.
  2. We'll get a report on finances from Pete
  3. We'll review progress towards a place to race from the team on that
  4. We'll review where we are at on the whole not for profit organization thing
  5. I hope Rob King can discuss ROAR membership for the club
  6. Discuss club dues for the upcoming season.
  7. I hate to do it, but we also gotta start talking about what classes we will promote. We can't have 10 classes with 3 guys each. I have a few ideas as a starting point. I might do a few polls but I don't want this group to devolve in gunfights over classes as so often happens on RC Tech.


Meeting will be open to all but I remain firm that I want to hear from the people that will be paying dues / fees on a regular basis when it comes time to the core issues and club responsibilities. Having said that, I want to hear from a few folks that don't make it out all that often or are interested in coming out to know what would make you start racing on a regular basis.

More to come soon.

Michael

As stated by Peter on the facebook page, looks like some good weather for Sunday. Let's get some racing in and generate the funds for some carpet, it's the most fun fundraiser ever!

Got the printer up and running, we should have heat sheets at the next race!

Here's the results from today. Sorry about the Rutt/CB mix up, blame it on my first time running a heat.
