A big thank you Mark for your hosting prowess.

 

There was food, drink, good company, slotcar racing and conversation....there was even rhubarb on offer.

 

A great time was had by all......didn't Viv drive well, Craig?

Hey all back a bit early. Felt a lot better Friday a.m. after lying down a few hours and shot off at first light, Made the funeral at 11.30 in Albany with 5 minutes to spare, - and no speeding... Despite my bit of pain, I had a great time myself, nice relaxed night, and we even had someone else doing the hard yards on the BBQ. "spiffing smithy, spiffing" JK. - We have a rhubarb plant doing trifford imitations, call by on your way home from work one night and we'll cut a bunch. Viv and munter took a pile and you can barely see where it went after 2 days. And Damien really took to the wood racing, he's keen to start a club up his way. Not to bad for a guy who had 5 minutes driving experience without magnets before you all arrived !

Hi Mark

 

yeah, you could be forgiven for thinking the track and racing were a sideshow to the main event.

In their defence, we had sat around and fed and lubricated the bodies for a while, so concentration levels may have been lowered to increase the "relaxation factor"

I shot that vid and put it up on Slotforum as well, because we had a visitor "Damo" who is on slotforum, but not on here - yet.

He is from Ohope (next to Whakatane), and this was his first experience of club racing.

Viv has said he'd host. But we need classes.

 

I'd vote for GT since they can stratch their legs on the long straight, and maybe muscle car?

 

But I might not be able to come, so don't decide on my preferences Viv. Still crook like last week.

It's hard finding a sober window at this time of year...

 

Does Tim have his license yet . . ah darn, too young.....

 

Come on Mac, harden up, alcohol.gifor sober up, or something..... remember these things ? xslotx.gif

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Speaking of young, anyone seen the mongoose food or it's handler lately?

 

Emailed Viv to remind him to stick up the classes.

JK, do you need some workshop space or your cartrix worked on ?

Just holler, I'm just lying about the house at present.

 

And don't forget to come grab some rhubarb.

And remind me, who IS the current president on the HBCC ?

On one hand, the Cartrix aren't ideally suited to Viv's track.

Of all our tracks, they're at their best on mine.

 

On the other hand, they ARE a club class, which most of us really like; and we HAVE given them "a rest". - they haven't been run since 15th November.... we've had other 4 club nights since we last ran them.

 

If Craig cared to build his track, he could host and choose his own classes..... :)
