Unfortunately Bahia Vista won’t be available for Fly Classics next week due to an unexpected trip to Christchurch for family reasons.

We are then away in Sydney/Canberra for 2 weeks. I will have forgotten how to slot car by the time I get back.

Sorry boys - I can't host next week. Fly back into the Bay around 7pm on Thursday so can hopefully join in for the last couple of races if someone else puts their hand up.

My shed is open Saturday from 10-12 for anyone who wants to come over and check out the cars for sale. The track will be on for anyone want to run some cars too.

Would have liked to be there but a sick Gaylene, demanding animals and a cold morning meant otherwise.

Macs coffee is good, I had one once.

Hi everyone, sorry to say that this is my farewell.

I have enjoyed my time with everyone in the club and the racing. However I unfortunately have a slightly competitive streak. I do not need to be at the front but I do like to feel that I am doing well. At the moment I am tending to be last or close to it, and this is mainly because I am not an instinctive, natural driver. I need lots and lots of driving practice to achieve a reasonable standard. This really means building my own track and unfortunately that is not something you can do while living in a caravan. I made a conscious choice to live as I do as it allowed me to retire slightly early. So compromises have to be made and this is one of them.

I wish you all the best for all your slot car adventures.

If you are interested in any of my cars, controllers or slot car related equipment please get in touch with Mac.

Cheers, Paul Briggs.

Aaah not so fast young man.....the door is always open and you know that slot cars is a disease that can go into remission but never leaves, there is no pill, there is no cure.

Be seeing you
somewhere
sometime

Rule Number One - No one buy any of his gear it is verboten as I think they say in German
Rule Two - Join the CTRP society - I'll tell what the acronym stands for later
Rule Three - Taking volunteers for a round the clock roster to guard his site so no-one passes and breaks rule One
Rule Four - Read Munter's post above
Rule Five - Re-read the first four rules.



Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
'Relax' said the night man,
'We are programmed to receive.
You can check out any time you like,
But you can never leave!'


Paul - consider yourself a targeted man, there is no escape.

It's a bit late. I paid Paul for the gear on Saturday and now most is sold or committed. Slotmadmac trading has been in full effect. With 74 cars to move already on my plate I needed to move fast. And I did.

Sorry to hear that Paul. Gear can always be found again so if you do decide to come back we'll probably still be here... take care man...
