Fair comment Roscoe. It was sort of organised on the fly. (See what I did there) Maybe we should scrap that first round and rerun with all informed and able to attend?

Just caught up on all this and agree in part with Ross.

That would be cool.

Seems fair to do that.

I can understand that our methods of communication or lack of are causing us problems. How can we do it better?

Maybe we start having a monthly meeting so we can make these sort of decisions

Possibly a discussion needs to happen. What will happen to the class each week we race the flys that gets knocked out or is the fly going to be a fourth class? Do we need a sixth week to pick up the classes set aside to allow the flys in etc etc

At the moment itís 130. However the whole overpass has thrown a curve ball in the mix; it blocks the view of the curves at the one end. Fortunately we havenít made the drivers stations yet.

Might need a croupier rake or two for marshaling some parts of that track :)

Paul there are no absolute rules on driver station locations, so it is worth considering having each lane's station placed where the overpass causes the least interference to corner viewing. So they may be on different sides of the track if that helps.
- Do you need the input of a short person's view in considering them . . . . . . . . . . First person to say "ducks legs" is going to get their car jumped on Thursday.....

Works for me [ oh Toyota, just when I finally got my modern Nascar running almost halfway decent, it'll keep ]

I'll bring something to record the results of the Fly - A thought - Peoples, do you want to leave tied laps tied, or use the "move it across to the next lane in-situ" system. - Can think about that Thursday
