Hi all,

Reminder that we're cleaning up the track tomorrow, Sunday May 6th.  We're going to meet there at 10AM.  Bring a push broom, blower, and anything else that could be useful.  There could be some limited practice afterward if you want to bring a car.

See you there,
Blake

Hi all,

After a weekend off for Strawberry Cup, IROCC's next club race is this Sunday June 10th.  Currently the weather is looking a little iffy so stay tuned.

Track setup will be at 9:30AM if it's dry.

See you there!

Hi all,

Who is planning on racing this Sunday July 22nd?  I'm asking because I will be out of town and I know that the Youngers are also out of town.  Please post in here if you are planning to race so we can determine if there is enough interest.

Thanks,
Blake

 Just got back in town. Was going to charge up my batteries tonight to see if they still hold a charge.  Was planning on coming out this weekend. If not then that's fine it will give me some time to sort my gear out.

Hey Rob. No matter what I am going to show up. Even if we are not racing, i need to shake my car down.  Might just be a couple of battery packs and a coffee.

Hey Guys, are we racing this week?

Lets get a show of hands for those that CAN make it out.

Craig, who has to pick up and drive the Cube van, would rather not go though the hassle if we end up not having enough people to race.
Same with the other die-hards that show up and wait around.
We'd all like to race, no question, but also dont want to waste a morning sitting around wondering.

We are suffering from parked cars on the race surface more regularly now also, so if we get serious we should try and address that as well.
Cheers
Jody

It ended up being a good race day yesterday with 13 people racing.  Reminder we're off this long weekend as some of us are travelling to Richmond for the RRR race.  We'll take a roll call for the Aug 12th club race as we get closer.

we are going to try for next weekend Aug 19.
Schedule shows an off week because of Daffodil Cup but that doesn't effect Sunday.
So lets see how many can show up next weekend Aug 19....

What's the story for today (Aug 12th)?

Anyone else going to show up? It's lonely at the track right now.

Unfortunately I can't make Aug 19th due to a wedding on the lower mainland.  Hopefully a few others will chime in here for the 19th.
