Alright guys time to start throwing around some ideas. We are over due to start the Cup season. We need to start tossing around some dates and local for the event. With our current group of racers and the addition of others coming in for the event I'm not sure HSH can handel the event.

Ant ideas,
Wade

I have been in contact with Philip, and will be hosting a PN regional event on April 14th. I have just been holding off on the event thread, as I am in need of the updated rules and classes so I can post everything all at once.

I think the 21st would be a little close for us to get maximum participation out of both events, but if the Cup race could slide to the 28th, or the first Saturday in May, then I am sure our guys would be able to participate.

We do need to get moving on something though. :D Thanks for pushing the ball a little Wade. Let's get it rolling for good :D
