Wicked, looking forward to it!

Sorry i couldnt make it tonight Bri/Tom/Tony feel almost embarrased to say i cant afford to :( i took the car for the wheels to be balanced today and it *should* have only cost about 10, but instead it had 2 punctures and one of the tires was completely knackered and cant go back on, so i'm now running the spare abnd have an alloy wheel with no tire and it'll cost 70 to sort :( :(
I'll see you guys next week :(

I can't wait! Two classes of hfay and the club championships too.We're gonna be busy:D.
Also i'd like to officially book a 'loaner car + tx' for my friend who's coming to try out the hobby.(Give Bri time to sort one out that the wheel won't fall off!:p)

Yep,quite a day all in all! Thanks for running me down to the hospital Tom,and waiting for three hours! That was quick getting the pics up this month WD!, and thanks Mal for helping me up the stairs for the rest of the day too:) i had a great day as usual(except for the fall lol).

I was also thinking about the big track part of the day,maybe we could do a 4 wide L 'big track' instead of the size track we did this month then,
1. We'd have all the track we need for HFAY
2. It will take less time to set up,and less time to change it to HFAY track
3. We can still get a 'big track' race for the club c'ship

What do you guys think?

No problem mate! Got 'em up fast because I bought my Notebook with me to the meet yesterday and grabbed em off Mal while we were together. :)

I think your ideas are good. It's the best way but also it's a shame we wont be able to make such a use of the curves any more... :(

The only other option would be to start at 12 instead of 1pm but i don't know if it'd be possible to get the room earlier,i guess that's one for Bri.

Bri has commitments until 12 sometimes so that might be a no no... I'll speak to him tomorrow night about it and get back to you.

Yeah bit of a none-starter day really! but never mind, these things happen.
Some really good pics though, top job getting 'em up so fast, i think we'll have to do it that way next time!
With regards to the tracks, dont right-off the big curves so fast, we could do a track, using the 2 HFAY tracks as before, and use the curves to join them!
Then we get a big track and its nice and quick to changover to HFAY.

Yeah, that's a good idea Mal.
