Ok let's get this started again and try to set it up before the end of this month!

Sound off with what dates work for you in April!

Unless Mini-z has ballet or something we could do the 8th/9th combined with 22nd/23rd.

or 15th/16th combined with 29th/30th.

If we just set our schedule to every other week with every other Friday, Saturday in rotation if might be easy to set the dates for the next few months.

I'll be gone 10th, 15th & 16th.

8-9th I'll be super busy, so that doesn't look that good either.

April 9 sucks for me. I think the other days are okay for now.

8/9 the track is being taken over by Pinewood Derby so that's out; the following week I'll be at MIX (http://mini-zracer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35773) and will likely need a few days to recover (plus the 15th is my b'day! :D). Soooo I'm thinking it'll be those last two weekends, or, what about the 1st/2nd? :)

Let me just post it all...

April 1 - Not preferred, but I can do it.
April 2 - Free
April 8 - Free
April 9 - Bad
April 15 - Not preferred, but I can do it.
April 16 - Free (Probably a good day anyway since I'll stay up after we finish to watch the Chinese GP)
April 22 - Free
April 23 - Free
April 29 - Not preferred, but I can do it.
April 30 - Free


The "Not preferred, but I can do it" nights are Riichi Mahjong nights. I try to go when I can but I pick Mini-Z over it if it's one or the other.

I wont be available the 30th. Jeep event. :D

Otherwise I think I'm good.

So how about the last two weekends for our "main" races and the 2nd for a "bonus" event e.g. F1 on one track and drift trials on another? No timing and scoring, just purely for fun, to work on setups, etc.? :cool:

I like D's idea. Let's make two tracks on bonus day. One is next HFAY and the other is made using leftover tiles. I'd like to do more practice to expect better result on HFAY.

April 2nd for F1 / Setup / etc then? Would it be possible to have an earlier start time for that day or do we still have to wait for 7 PM?

I'm out of town on the 16th for a concert in Toledo.

The main reason I ask...

I really want to invite my girlfriend but our normal ending time is too late for her... plus I don't think she'd want the pressure of a real race without being able to drive her car on a track before doing that.

If we could start earlier in the day I could probably bring her. I'd really like to be able to do that.

Wait, so you're doing the first special event on the first weekend I'm busy since I started coming? :P

Yep, sounds like 4/2 is go for F1 + HFAY Practice Fun Time. :)

Yes, maliciously! :eek::rolleyes::p You just said you couldn't do the 8th I thought? :confused:

Oh for some reason I thought the 8th was the first actual weekend of April, if it's not then I'm good to go :)

Any word on start time for 2nd... or should I expect normal timing?

FYI 4/2 Event is canceled. :)

So we have two options this month since Mini-z is out at Mix next week.

Two options are

1. 23 big track and 29th hfay
2. 22 hfay and 30th for big track

YoYoPete is out for the 30th and rensuchan said he doesn't prefer the 29th, but it is possible.

So is everyone ok with the 23rd and 29th?

23rd Big Track starting at 8pm
29th HFAY starting at 7pm

Sorry I've been out of touch for awhile. Been really super busy with work and family stuff. :(

I can't do either 22nd or 23rd, but I'm pretty sure I could make either (both?:p) 29th or 30th.

Thus 23rd and 29th would be fine with me (I'd miss the 23rd).

BTW, isn't Friday start times usually 8pm and Saturday start times usually 7pm? Making it:

Sat. 23rd Big Track starting at 7pm
Fri. 29th HFAY starting at 8pm

22nd 30th sounds better to me :D

Same because I can still do Mahjong then... but ultimately I can make either.

I'm willing to do 23 and 29 if that's best for more people though, Mahjong has less priority in my list =P

What night is Mahjong? Is it always the same night? Just wondering for future planning purposes.

Every other Friday. It's not a big deal, sometimes we don't get enough people to play anyway so no worries if it needs to happen on the same night.

Hopefully, avoid 4/29. It's up to more people's convenience, though.

monkeyZ

I can't do the 22nd. Anyone against just doing 23rd and 30th? I know we usually do a Friday and Saturday.... but the 30th leaves YoyoPete out...

YoYo-Pete
2011.04.18, 04:56 PM
I'm out on the 30th... Have a Jeep event, so if we could do the HFAY on the other nights so I can attend and get my point, that would be cool.

After much discussion with mini-z the dates are set as follows:

April 23rd - Big Track 7pm start time
April 29th - HFAY 8pm start time

See everyone Saturday!
