Practice Night this week….& transponder news

Two updates for you.

This Thursday (31st March) we’ll be running an open practice night, and the second of our “School of R/C” sessions, this week concentrating on some driving basics.  Doors will be open by 6pm, we’ll run the ‘school’ session around 6.30, and track will stay open for practice (uncontrolled, untimed) until about 9/9.30.  There will be a small charge to cover our costs for the night – probably $5-$8 each or so.  See you there! (remember our first School of R/C session covered the basics of “The Racing Line”. Go here for a review before Thursday night….and bring your track map!!).

On the transponder front, we have now ordered our new lap counting hardware (the bits we need to make transponders work).  We would like to place the order for the actual transponders by the end of April – so over the next few weeks we’ll need to confirm orders, and collect your money. If you want to, you can pay a bit each time over the next month (practice this week, plus next two race meetings) to ease the pain.  Reminder that total cost is $100 each transponder, plus probably $5 or so for an extra mounting bracket).  To pay, see Greenie, to order, let Scott know (I’ll have a list there the next three weeks).

Look forward to seeing you Thursday night.

    Hey guys,

    slight change of plan for this week’s practice session.

    The “School of R/C” session will now be taught by Rocket….he’ll be passing on some of the knowledge he’s gained over many years of front-running R/C action.

    Should be a ripper session, and a great night of practice.
