Default New club in Central WI forming.

There will be a meeting to discuss the forming of a club to keep the racing going at Small World Raceway in Stevens Point, WI
This will be a daunting task, so all support and ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Meeting time is;
Monday October 4th at 6:30pm. Location is Small World Raceway, behind Player Lounge. Actual address is 2124 rice st. unit B Stevens Point WI.
The racing will continue this friday, and the former website for the track is now down, so call 715 344-6387 or 715 310-0178 for your questions about racing.
Until a new website is made I will use rctech as much as possible to provide details about the club and racing.
Larry.

Default Racing is on for Oct. 1st.

Everything is ready to go, thanks to all who pitched in with cleaning and the computer equipment. And Sammy for all his computer knowledge! And Jeff and Charity, you two are cleaning animals!
Racing starts at 7:00pm, please be registered by 6:45.
Some nice things are soon to happen here, another hobby store is coming in with parts and cars and trucks. And there will be a lounge with pizza and snacks also moving in.
No website for now, so I will give updates here on RCtech.
In recent weeks we have been running the following classes;
Novice Slash,
Stock SCT,
Mod SCT,
Vintage sedan,
18r spec,
And a fun free race at the end called Last Man Standing. A 10 minute SCT race with limited marshaling. This race limited to 10 entries, first come, first served. Hope many of you can make it today.
Larry.

Default Great Idea!

Brett, I am going to remove those carquest banners as you suggested, so you will be able to race from the upper balcony [the pits ]
I also might build a ramp into the track so you can drive right down the steps and go to your race w/o even leaving the pits. I also have an idea for driving back up the stairs to return to the pits. I'm not lazy or anything, I just think it would be cool to try it!
Larry.

Default Reminder! Meeting tomorrow evening!

Just a reminder that we are having a meeting Monday October 4th at Small World Raceway in Stevens Point, WI to discuss forming an R/C club to take over operations of the Small World Raceway R/C race track. Find out who we are, how we started, what went wrong, and how we are moving forward with the racing. Also being discussed will be the plans for a second night of racing here [ Oval ] a hobby shop coming in, and a rock crawling area. Hope to see many of you there. Spread the word to your racing friends, no website for the track yet. Thanks,
Larry.

The meeting was more about setting up the club properly. No days were talked about. Progress was made, SPARCCA Stevens Point area radio control car association will soon be a reality. Thanks to all that attended and gave input. And thanks to the MARCCA club for the advice! I know it sounds like we copied your name, but nobody had anything better.
Larry.

Indoor dirt? I think there would be a hell of a draw!
