Since I don't have all the racers EMail's ,here's a thread.... Some of you may already know this, but racing will most likely be cancelled the week of the 19th. Mike and I will try to keep you posted or send emails. :)

Not sure if or when we will be racing at Tom Thumb. A small group of us racers want to get together and run. We have a small track and a place to set it up.

Hopefully, things go well and we can continue getting Mike's support of our racing habit.

If you are in the Columbus, OH area and raced Mini Z, please PM me and I will give you details.

Thanks to Mike and Tom Thumb Hobbies for giving Columbus, OH racers at great place to race.

Herman, if any of us run into Abe, we will let him know to stop by the forum and look you up.

Techno, looks like you've made quite an investment. Thank you for the offer.

Holy Bull,

Mike puts on a first class race. He always likes to challenge the racers. Mike, Wavy or I will post when we are back to racing at Tom Thumb or another location.
