Worldwide Slot Car Chat On Zoom!

Recommended Posts

The first chat last week went well, so we're going to try it again, with a little more warning, and a different time. This one should allow some of those down under to attend.

 

Greg Gaub is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Topic: World Wide Slot Car Chat Ep 2

Time: Apr 29, 2020 08:00 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada)

I don't think you'll get many from here Greg.

That's 1am east coast Australia time and 3am in New Zealand tomorrow

Ha! Figures I'd get it wrong.

Well, I already posted it everywhere, so we'll see how much activity there is.

I'll do the next one at 4pm PST, which (according to internets) should be 9am in Sydney. On the plus side, it will also be 7pm in New York, which was requested by an east coaster.

There's just no good time for the entire world. :\

 

We can fix most things, but we haven't been able to get the rest of the world to adopt our idea of time. Apparently, most 'mericans and euros still want to go to work when the sun is up :)

 

- But nice to have you thinking of us, and good to see you popping in here Greg.

Auslot is having a good busy time in a general slotting sense.

Well, it looks like Zoom was not as generous this time, and cut us off at the 40 minute limit. Next week, we'll make sure it lasts longer, hopefully as long as we want. It was great to meet some new faces and chat about slot cars. We'll do Wednesday again, but probably later in the day to make sure some people from down under can also attend. Thanks to everyone that joined us this time! I'll have the video uploaded ASAP and will link to it here.

We don't have an "agenda" per se, but I like to start off with quick introductions from everyone. Just a quick statement of who you are (forum handle is also helpful), what kind of slot racing you do, or are interested in, how long you've been doing it, etc. Then I'll ask if anyone has any new or interesting things they'd like to share, and finish up with any questions anyone has about anything under the broad umbrella of "slot cars." It's been enjoyable so far, and I don't see that changing any time soon. Come as a viewer or participant, either is fine. You can mute your mic and/or block your camera, it's up to you. There's even a text chat function that can be used for questions from the "gallery." :)

I hope you are able to join us!​

LOL!

 

I think this chat was the best yet! We had great attendance from all over the world, even some night-owls from the UK time zones. It was fun to hear about people's history and experience in the world of slot cars, and put more faces and voices to names. We will definitely do it again next week. I think we'll alternate between this time, and a few hours prior, so that we can give both those down under, and those in western Europe a change to join in at least every other week.

 

I'm currently uploading the recording to YouTube. There was a problem with the audio when I previewed it on my computer, but I'm hoping that was my processor being busy, and not the recording. If it's good, I'll post a link so that people can enjoy it.

It was good to see Tamar still up and about that time of night, and nice to see his face again.

Apart from the actual slot racing, he also organises a pretty flaming good after match function........

Yeah, that looks to be 2am Perth, 4am East coast Oz, and 6am New Zealand

I am usually up about then - as my alarm clock has fur, a very gutteral meow and is set at 5:45 am - but I wouldn't be talking to wake wife - and I am not coherent until I have 20mg of caffeine coursing my veins :)

Actually, not sure I am coherent any time...

Next meeting takes place in approximately 24 hours from the time of this posting. No matter what part of the "slot car" hobby you enjoy or are taking an interest in, you are welcome to attend the meeting and share your story, ask questions, or just watch and listen! Also, I apologize to anyone who cannot attend due to the time of day. The next meeting will be at a different time.

Such a scruffy bunch, and who was that bearded santa claus git in a bathrobe . . honestly. This lock-down business has standards of decency falling through the floor.

You need to do something about your class of guest Greg :ph34r:

As per usual, which seems to work well enough to fill two hours, we'll do short introductions for returning guests, full intro for new guests who want to share, and then open it up to show and tell, news and reviews, and general Q&A. 

It's been enjoyable so far, and I don't see that changing any time soon. Come as a viewer or participant, either is fine. You can mute your mic and/or block your camera, it's up to you. There's even a text chat function that can be used if you don't or can't use a microphone. 

I hope you are able to join us!
