Just randomly thought about it....

Maybe one weekend we could organize some sort of friendly competition between other regional clubs? Chicago has a group too, are there any around Indiana / Ohio? Toronto would also be an option if they have a group, they're not much farther than Chicago is :)

Of course we'd make them come visit us too :D

Cool idea R - esp. the concept of an invitational (hard for me to travel due to baby etc.) - I like it! :)

It's time to hand her an old KT-5 with nothing in it and let her start driving. It works pretty well. Ask hrdrvr.

Ha, she'll be two next week - I'd have to find one of the pink S2000s for her though...! :D

Get her a KT-18. She can teethe on the antennae

Haha, mine is all about racing. She is as excited as I am to get to the race in MD this weekend. Traveling 8-9 hours with a 3yo and a 6 month old is going to be interesting, but its what family trips are all about :D

My dad bought my wife a pink s2000 a couple of years ago. Its my little girls favorite car, but I mostly only let her play with the lark big Mac, as its a little beat up from racing already. Two is a perfect age :D

I involve both of mine in track side activities as much as possible. I hope it sticks :D


Here is a pic of my little one at about 18 months.

Getting kids into this hobby, and traveling to meet other clubs are the things that are going to make this hobby stick around. Do it as much as possible guys!!!

Heck yeah I'd love to see you guys visit chi-town for a visit at the club!

I'd love to go out there too but running the club, kids, and helping promote Dnano at the local hobby shop is chewing up the spare time.


Here are some pics of my daughter as well :)
