I would like to try the club car again if it is available, but I'll defer to others who haven't had a chance yet.

Hey Colin,

Yep sounds good.  Depending on other newcomers you may need to race it in a slightly faster heat than last week.

Sure, it will give me practise holding my line (out of their way.) :) If there are multiple drivers for the rental, would it help if I brought my transponder for the car? Or would that mess up the race software?

Forecast for the weekend looks good so far.  See ya then.

Yeesh, I see Environment Canada has downgraded our weekend forecast severely.  Fingers crossed.

Is there a plan in case of rain? Weather network says showers until late morning.

It's not looking too good, but we will normally congregate at the track, put on our best weather-person hats, and decide what to do.

We cannot setup in the rain nor on wet asphalt so, at this point, track setup will definitely be delayed and very possibly cancelled.

People can practice at Matrix if they like, but I won't be sticking around there myself.  I plan on popping by the outdoor track at 9:30am ish to see what's up, get some Timbits, and hope for the rain to move on.

Ya I will be coming as well. If we cancel Luca and I and mabie Alex will go to the indoor track to give Alex a taste of Rc racing. If Alex can handle a indoor track outdoors will seem like a breeze. ( I already have glued tires. )

Sucky day for outdoor racing for sure - constant drizzle all day!  I saw a few people as they came and went from the lot.  Shout out to Avery for bringing out a couple of friends and getting them over to the indoor track to make the best of the wet day.  They caught on quick on carpet with the loaner car!  Hopefully they'll be racing this Sunday on the asphalt.

This coming Sunday (June 25th) is the last club race before Speed Weekend (July 8-9).

See ya then,
Blake

The weather is looking nice and warm for tomorrow's club race!  Hopefully we're going to see Colin and Avery's friends running the rental ride, and Doug's going to flash up his new nitro car.  Should be a good one!

Rumour has it that Thomas might even show....

Setup is at 9:30am.

See ya there,
Blake
