What a bad day . I'm starting to wonder everyone was saying this is going to be there greatest event. If we would have started at 11 or 12 we could have been done before the rain. This race seems so unorganized. There was much much computer crap. I know its not Ron's fault because I've been to other events with him running the computer he knows what he's doing. Why would anyone try to run a new system that nobody knows how to use on a huge race. I love the track layout but there to many rocks. The drivers stand is too low, I have to stand on a crate and it was still too low.

I guess I'm just a little mad because my 777 and LST are both messed up .

BTY great t-shirts LOL.
wheres's mine anyways!

Sorry you guys feel the way you do however I would like to qualify a couple of your points.

One - it is very hard to test a new computer system when you are lying in bed with a broken leg and ankle.

Two - thanks to the 2 people that actually showed up to help me set up and do track maintenance, let alone help me build the track. If there were to many rocks why not help chewy, Steve and I when we worked on the track till 8:00 tonight in the rain.

Three - I have been to races at Bellevegas that Ron has run and lets be honest there were 3 1/8 Scale Mains and one Monster Truck. It takes a bit longer to run 100 racers versus say 30

Four - The reason we started late had nothing to do with the computer it had to do with registering the 50 people that did not pre register. Many of who did not register till 11:00 am

I guess you can not please everybody!

I was very impressed with the layout of the track... Lots of different jumps.

Thanks for all your hard work in preparing this track.

P.S. The workmanship in the driver stand is awesome. It doesn't even sway or creek when guys are running up and down it.

no Mac you are right, you cant please everyone....but oh well, s**t happens, and you have to deal with it, complaining only makes the day seem worse....

...now that being said, if i hear of anyone complaining becasue the track has puddles in the morning, or complaining because of track maintinace i am going to loose it...Chewy, and myself stayed almost 2 hours after everyone had left, trying to get the track to dry up as much as possible so that everyone can run first thing tomorrow morning, and we can get things underway as soon as possible.....both chewy and myself are going to be out extra extra early to get the track to be in premo condition so that its ready to go.

see you all tomorrow...
