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

FYI, we are doing two 10 minute races (one in each direction) this week instead of the 1 hour race.

After talking about it last AA GTG we decided to alternate between having a single long race (e.g. 1 hour) one AA GTG and 2 shorter races the following AA GTG.

The single long race would be worth double points. Each of the shorter races would be worth single points. So each week would have the same total points but a different number of races.

Please chime in with your thoughts as we only discussed this between David, Lawrence and Will last time.

Thanks,

Also we are doing F1 races as well so bring 'em if you got 'em.

Even if you don't have one but want to try it, I have an extra F1 (27Mhz AM). Just let me know and I'll bring it.

And also for anyone at all interested to just come on by and watch, we'll let you even take one of our Mini-Zs for a spin on the track (usually between 8 and 10pm is best for this). So come and try it out :D

95% chance that I will be there tonight. About 50% chance that 3 of my friends will be showing up to watch / hang out (they like cars / electronics). I get out of work at Nexcess at 10PM and I will try to get there ASAP, so hopefully by 10:30. Charging batteries at work right now :)

Cool. I'll try to bring my extra cars for people to try for free.

I will even sell them a used one if they like it :D
