Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

It sounds like we need to start with a minimum of one person in the trailer who can act as a master radio/announcer to all those on course and in grid along with a starter who can work in conjunction with them to send cars. At minimum then we'd need about 6 workers which should be doable as long as...

Thank you Matt Ales for taking the time to design and setup up a course. Single handily blowing off the course Sunday morning and making sure it was safe to run.

Re: December Events Open for Registration - New Format for Sunday Championship

(fun runs are contingent upon a minimum of 10 people participating) I hope that's 10 per group, otherwise there would not be enough workers. I realize as "fun runs" we don't need as many, but 5 wouldn't cut it, 10 is half what we usually have as a minimum. These are fun runs, we can cover...

A few questions: The FJ karts run when? First at the moment, but Steve Ekstrand had some other ideas that may work to better. I'll talk again with him this weekend. His other Idea was to put them in a separate grid just like we do now by the motorhome and have them run like nationals with time inbe...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

If I'm not mistaken, for what it's worth, with effectively only 2 clubs that have real voting impact, only one club has to be present and vote and a motion will carry. Nobody else will have any input if the opportunity is missed. In a way, there is already an imbalance of power. It would seem that ...

Re: 2018 Events: time to plan for the first quarter any idea ...

We have not contracted with any venues yet.

As a club we are asking for dates already which is as early as the venues will allow. The schedule is still fluid, as is the national event schedule, but as soon as we have contracted dates we will post them.

Which theme for next years event weekends ?

I thought it might be fun to pick a theme for next years event weekends! Some that come to mind are;

80's movies
90's movies
Syfi references
Sports
Any decade
Monthly holidays
Weird single day holidays that fall on that day.


Just a thought, anyone have any fun ideas?
