Stolen Truck, Race Wheels, Tools and Parts

Hi Gang. On December 6, 2018, my truck was stolen and the contents stripped. Most of the tools were pretty generic. However my Formula Ford wheels, Hoosier tires, and Formula Ford parts are pretty unique and will be hard to sell since the audience is so small. So, please be on the lookout for my whe...

San Diego Match Tour

Did you notice this in the San Diego Match Tour flier? "All events must have 120 entrants 2 weeks prior to the event." I did too. Two weeks prior the entries totaled about 100. It now stands at 110. I called today and confirmed the event will proceed as scheduled despite the low entry coun...

Sounds like a classic case of unbalanced washing machine syndrome. Consult Kowalski's Machine Shop. He has much experience with cars breaking and shaking up.

Re: How to tell which group is running?

I still think this is a non-issue. We almost never are waiting for either cars or workers anymore and worker no-shows are extremely rare. Improving PA communications would make the events better for competitors in all areas, what's going on in the group running and change over. Completely agree wit...

Re: How to tell which group is running?

But it's been down during some time for each of the last few events. In addition people don't have memorized what classes run when. Like differentiating between group 2 and 3 etc. When the groups run is listed on the top of the results. Knowing human nature, something that happens automatically is ...

Re: How to tell which group is running?

Assuming live timing is now repaired and will work moving forward, wouldn't that be as good as any form of notification? It is automatic, doesn't required any additional outside inputs, and doesn't rely on someone remembering to perform additional task(s). It's the KISS method.

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

Just tossing out a wild idea which hasnt been thoroughly tested. We could have 3 runs in the am for a lower cost and a second session in the afternoon like the practice or x runs for an additional cost. That way those competing wouldnt have to stay and those just wanting practice could come in the ...

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

Excellent feedback Danielle. You're perspective is very important as you are exactly the type of competitor I know we'll lose the first time you have to wait until 1pm or even later to get your four runs or complete your work assignment. I have a question for you. If we cut back to three runs on Sun...

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

Money gain though increasing attendance would provide more money and value to the region than the sales of X-runs, as the fees per person are higher and the participant adds to the overall worker pool thus easing work load for the event. Sean, I completely agree. I hope this doesn't make you change...

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

Give it a rest George.... Gesh..... And even mentioning 3 runs in a dying region with consistently less than 125 entrants should immediately lead to some dire punishment like being forced to run your CM car covered in I'mWithHer bumper stickers. Average number of entries in 2017 was 155 with a medi...

and to follow up on the original point of this thread. the entire poll is flawed. My intent was to stimulate debate and to hear various points of view. I think it's working.

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

I was happy to be out by 1:30 at the last event. I would be happy with that and as the poll reflected, most were. But there were only 117 people there, an unusually light crowd. The problem as I see it Adam, is that some people will not want to devote all day to get four runs in. I won't. If I see ...

Re: Membership Poll...How long is too long?

What is the deal with the last poll option?: "Cut back to three runs to reduce the overall time commitment and keep the December format" Was there a motion to move runs to 3 vs 4 for the half day format? I know I got 4 runs in December. From my understanding, we generally cut runs to 3 wh...
