Any particular time frame Shawn?

Great Richard see you on Saturday.

That is such a hard question to answer Billy.   People like Yves and Kevin have shown up at 8 and 10am to work on the accessibility stand and leave around 2-3pm.   The RCO guys that have come to help seem to show up after lunch.  ;)  That's why I put Practice to start at 3pm.

After lunch would be good for you guys to show up to help and then you could practice

It looks like Saturday will be the nice day of the weekend.  ;D

Thanks to Greg, the wheel chair lift is now at the track - ready to be installed.  Also a big thanks for donating two 100ft extension cords to the track.

The track has not been practiced on since last Saturday. Sunday's big rain fall has helped make the track solid.  I think we will have a real good track for practice day!  Hope you guys are ready.


Come over to practice $5 - 3pm to dark. or come help complete something off the To do list 1pm? on then you could practice for free.  Who's in?

A baby sitter has been hired for Saturday so I will be fully available to participate. Can't wait  ;D

Practice cancelled since the rain hasn't stopped since 7:45am.

I'm planning to work on the pits (wheelchair ramp to stand)  this afternoon if the rain stops. Feel free to come help or pop by to hangout.

Plans can be moved to Sunday afternoon. Anytime up to 3:30pm.

I will keep you posted if there can be practice on Sunday

We'll probably drop by around 3 or so to help if you are still at it.

Thanks for the help Brian. The first ramp is installed. The second ramp won't take long. Then a little platform at the gate and we're done.
