We are doing this for fun as always.  A lap counter may be in the works but Im just going to have some fun here.  Id like to see how much interest there is and how many are local enough to make the trip?  I have no desire to get an organized 5th scale event in the works when there are none.  So far its only like 3 guys.  I thought there were more :o

Anyhow I have lots on the go with the Dual shoot-out triple coming up  and track maintenance with all the rest so we shall see how she progresses.  I will get a few pics from the roof when its not raining so you get an idea but its mainly going to be a huge oval with a big kink in the west turn.

We will be using the long grass as a catch so to speak and I think it shall work pretty well.
I really want to get into some 5th scale pulling so if anyone is interested please let me know that as well??

I would love to come out to the track there and check it out.  Maybe a few dudes and I will be able to make the trip one of these days. Thanks!

same as here unfortunately..first meeting we had 12 with 9 drivers, Barry, Rossco made the trip...since then we've struggled to get 4...hopefully next time out more will show. what rankles me is 120 people showed from all over to an indoor 1/8 and 10th electric event up here a month ago...there's loads of mini scalers but they've no interest it seems in the big stuff.
we don't have organization per se but the lap counter makes it a little more competitive
hopefully you get enough interest to make a go of it.

also did a bit of hill climbing with my foff jeep at the weekend, Scott got some pretty good clips, went back to a hill that has beat all comers so far...

Checked out the climbing,... nice. 

Yes well I think there are way more who dream and want one just not too many actually have one.  Lots of keyboard cowboys out there and it becomes apparent when some of us work so hard to actually make something of it and there is no support.  We have had indoors close up within months of door opening.  I thinks its a cross between politics and high entry fees myself. 

All I can say is without support things just go away.  Its up to those that support to find more of us who love the hobby the way we do so much we sacrifice our time, work and effort so that we may all play.

I am personally thinking of keeping ours a club thing only.  It would be a shame but it is what it is and can't be sugarcoated no matter how hard everybody tries.

Pretty hard to support something when you never show  LMAO  Its all good tho cause we play hard and I guess thats all that counts. 

Maybe we should get our supporters together and bounce back and forth for fun once in awhile.  That may be an option considering ferries and all.

OK guys Im not stalling here but I have a minor issue with 1 said small hill.  It blocks the large sweeper that leads into the straight and sight is lost from the stand.  Im in need of a machine to move it and all my farmer buddies are as busy as can be.  Just as soon as I can get that squared away we are in business. 

If anyone has use of a machine that would help out tremendously as well just PM me let me know somehow would be great otherwise I will update ASAP with info.

Thanks
Glenn

Well unfortunately no its much too big for that! Im still working on it.  Being in a farming community all the machinery is hard at work but something will turn up Im optimistic  ;)  Ill keep you informed here but your more than welcome to head out on Saturdays for the rest of this month and we will be moving our OPEN TRACK days back to Sundays as always there is a better turn out.
