Join us at the Mini-Z Dojo (http://mini-zdojo.com/) for another Ann Arbor Mini-Z GTG on Friday January 16th, 2009. Bring your Mini-Zs, Iwavers, XMods, Micro-Ts, and Epochs, etc.

New people are welcome as always! Everyone is friendly and helpful and we have lots of fun! :)

NOTE: here's the easy to remember URL to keep up to date with our events: http://www.mini-zracer.com/annarbor

Please bring $10 to cover the cost of the race night (one fee for the whole night of practice and racing - a great value!).

The event starts at 7pm and is in Ypsilanti, MI (just southeast of Ann Arbor). The address is:
4110 Morgan Rd, Ypsilanti, MI 48197

Dang!!! I was about to leave the house on Friday just went down to check the forum to see if the GTG is still a go. Instead I learnt my internet connection is dead. Then I realized that it is kinda cold in the house. Turns out the furnace was dead too. So instead of having fun with you guys I had to call a service guy then run out buying electric heaters.
Long story short the internet is back up obviously but we still don't have a furnace - they say maybe Monday or Tuesday.

Oh no P!!! I was like 2 minutes late (got slightly stuck in my driveway for a second) and was sure you'd be there already, sitting in the back of your car watching Disney princess movies! :p You missed a ton of stuff:

Microcontrollers/Embedded Systems Club
DIY GiroZ Club
College Reminiscence Club
Camera Club (Jason playing w/ macro lens by himself)
Baby Club (?!)
Karting Trip Planning Club
Domestic Appliance Club (?!)
18th/14th Scale Club
Home Media System Club
10th Scale Club (mostly Carlos putting his new body on instead of racing!)
Wheelchair Pimping Out Club
E/T-Maxx Club
a bunch of other clubs

Oh, and about 6 hours in we actually did a couple of laps! The good news for you though is that Chuck (can't handle racing 2 days in a row?!), Paulie (can't handle racing and working back to back?!) and Will (can't handle getting time of work or leaving early?!) all missed as well so we'll have to do a bunch of makeup races on the 30th. The Dojo was toasty warm but when we left our cars were frozen (-13) - I could barely start mine and the CD player and hydraulic gear shift could barely move, and Dan's door latch was frozen unlatched, so you missed out on that which I'm sure you'd have cried about a bunch.
I hope you get your furnace fixed ASAP - we have a bunch of small electric heaters at the WH if that's helpful (sounds like you're covered now)! :)

J, thanks for placing your order (better late than never! :p) - Kevin and Carlos, you know the rule about mandatory beatdowns if you show up to the next race still owing from the previous... :eek:

Just violate their bunhole real bad. That would be badass.

On a sidenote this is too cool:

:eek: Urm, how about we delegate you as "the enforcer"?! :D RE Speed Checker, do a quick search in the forums and you'll find they're inaccurate to the point of being worthless. :rolleyes:
