Hi Ken

Our Wisconsin club will be discussing this event soon. I take it with the less classes we would be looking at running say 3-4 heats each day of each class?

Also if we run P-Mono also how about P-Ofshore? Same boat different prop.

So what's going on with the race? Is anyone signed up? Are you grilling chicken breasts for lunch?

I haven't registered yet since work has turned my life upside down and I won't know the basic out come until (hopefully) next week.

I got a breast for you, lunch is at the corner(as usual).

When are you going to get your act together,we go thru this every year with you! LOL

Unfortunately, these are not my typical delay problems. I can only say that our government is out of control. When we see each other again, I will elaborate.

So, I will have to tell your parents again about your improper eating habits.

PS what web site? You don't have it listed on your race thread....again.

Alan - We hope you can make it. Three of us Wisconsin cheese heads are coming. Jeff C., Sean K. and I. We are just signing up late.

Later - Doug

Hey Doug,
Even if everything goes to Hades....I should be there!

T.S.Davis

It wouldn't be right without you and Howard there Alan. I know we give each other crap constantly but I personally do enjoy having you guys come out to play. This may shock you but I listen too. But hey you know.....if you're too scared to come race us we understand. hahaha

This gig should be a hoot. I tried to figure it out but I had trouble tracking the history. This group that's planning to come, between us, has held over a dozen records, and at least as many national titles. We'll have the 2010 LSH national champion, the 2010 LSO National champion, 2009 Q Sport champ. Just the ones I could remember. Plus Fred was ranked 5th in the nation for 2010. It's quite a collection of talent IMO.

It's not all seasoned junkies though. We have guys that have never competed in a national event. We have car ninjas that have been converted. We have nitro guys that are trying the new fangled electric stuff. That is of course if everyone shows that has told us they intend to.

We're planning to juggle the heats so that the leaders will have to race each other on day 2 so nobody is out of it until this bugger's over. The latest version of race manager does it for us automatically. That thing is cool.

Guys, please please please get your registrations in so that Fred can get as much info as possible loaded into the software before the time is upon us.

Thanks for the kind words TD. I know you've been listening....you drive better than ever and build some sweet rides. BTW I think I need a building engineer....know of any for hire??

I saw that old pic of a a Mich cup of years ago on your site. Brings back some pretty good memories.

T.S.Davis
07-15-2011, 01:25 PM
I know, some of those sites sucked too. Sharp park was SO tiny. Good company I guess. Good laughs for sure. Somebody needs to flip over the rock Vega is hiding under. He owes us a cup too.

On the listening, wait till you see what I did to Mike's JAE. It's all or nothing on this one. It will either work or be an absolute turd. Shallowed up the tub and got rid of the ski. Might need a nice pair of slippers on the back before it does the happy dance. On the driving, if you had seen my performance at the nats you would have told me to find a new hobby. Humiliating.

You looking for a building engineer or an architect? If it's mechanical (meaning piping and such) we can find you the right people. We have Professional Engineers on staff. Architects are the devil. haha You can check out Green at www.johnegreen.com The company is into all kinds of things I don't even know about.

You could be. Need a place to stay? I hear Greyhound will deliver to MI.

AlanN
07-15-2011, 06:28 PM
Yeah Dave, it would be cool to see you again. You could take a break from the dust and breathe all the pollen you want.

How did you cope with that huge dust storm? Sorry for the thread jack.

D. Newland
07-15-2011, 06:33 PM
We're still seeing dust in places you couldn't imagine from that "Haboob" storm! It was quite an event. Man, it's been a weird weather year.

I'll be on a houseboat at Lake Powell while you guys are running the buoys.

Hey, what color are the bouys this year? I want to be sure to paint my boats the same.

They're gray. I was going to paint them bright safety orange but you know how I like to be color coordinated. The gray matches the color of the pond so nice.

No really, they're all safety orange. If they're not they will be when I get done with them. The left end point needs some more paint. I've chipped most of the color off that one. I think it's about a foot too wide. Could be me.

We got the Hotel lined up. Now find us the closest strip joint! The 300 mile rule kicks in on this trip! :)

Gonna try to be there Saturday at least. Prob couldn't sleep well over night there since the crack heads have started up stealing everything in my work neighbor hood again. When the feds and US Marshall have stopped them from stealing the huge copper windings off the railroad tracks, they decided to target my warehouse. And that's been about my least concern!!!

T.S.Davis
07-27-2011, 04:37 PM
Hey, maybe leave a couple leads of copper live out into your lot. Your presses must run on 460 three phase. Might not cure the problem but those particular thieves wont be back. Although you might need to use Ezyoff to clean them off your lot. It's the thought that counts.

AlanN
07-28-2011, 12:34 PM
Would be nice but I know what would happen to me. Not sitting a cell for their butts.

AlanN
07-31-2011, 10:58 PM
Thanks guys..what a hoot! Sorry I didn't stick around. Just wanted to spend some Q time with the fam today and have to get up early tomorrow. Hope all went well and the rest of the travelers make it back safely.

T.S.Davis
08-01-2011, 08:26 AM
Thanks for coming Alan. Seemed like you really needed a chance to blow of some steam and act a fool. Even if it was only for a day.

PLenty of talk about London. That's a month and a half out. Maybe by then you'll bee able to see daylight at the shop and come out for some more foolishness.

AlanN
08-01-2011, 03:33 PM
Well TD, I think I made an ass out our myself pretty good in the 3rd heat of OPC. I kept snickering about it on the ride home...sorry to Jeff though...unfortunate one to be behind me on the mill. When I left the pond my stomach was pretty empty and I was still darned thirsty. One great advantage you guys have are all the 7/11 stores in the area. I hit one and got the biggest coke slurpee available. Upon leaving the 7/11 I spotted a chinese food restaurant (china star? on 23 mile rd) and got a large size pork fried rice, and while waiting for the meal...took a bottle (thanks Tye) of water left over and poured it over myself for a mini shower. So when I hit a straight on the highway...drove with my knees had the a/c cranked while shovelling in as much hot steamy fried rice as possible until the next curve in the road.

Great to see you all again....Canada is out but will try to make another weekend run this year.

Here are a few pics I took between heats.

08-01-2011, 09:10 PM
I found a video on my phone where my maniac son was wondering around your pits filming your boats on their stands. It's a goofy video but it's all HD. If I can figure out how to get it off there I'll post it. There's one of Fred's boy doing some dope kung foo on there too.

Jeff
08-01-2011, 11:13 PM
So I took the first stint on the drive home. Did any one see the new car show on speed with Adam Corolla? Well at the end of the show they were doing a bit on funny street signes. I drove by one they had on the show. Exit 69, Big Beaver Rd. I laughed alot.

Maybe lucky getting your ticket drawn... but that hardware you took home was no Luck at all! You've got some sweet machines man and they are set up well! Thanks to you, Jeff, and Doug for making the trip. It's alway fun when you have the chance to race some different guys. Some of those P-Limited Sport Hydro heats were intense.

Later,

Thanks for hosting the race!
The P-Limited Sport Hydro heats were intense... Every bit as intense as the 2010 Nats.

Mike,

I had a great time. Spec racing today is sure fun. And you don't have to spend a lot of money. I hope that the club decides on hosting another Spec race next year.

I found a video on my phone where my maniac son was wondering around your pits filming your boats on their stands.

Thats quite a fine young man you got there. Besides being a great help around the pits, he's taking pictures of all our secret setups. :)

I'm posting a little late, but I had a great time again in Michigan racing RC Boats. Besides Arizona in March I making the Michigan trip a priority on my list of racing venues.

Jeff, Sean and I are going to try and host a good size electric race next summer at our nitro club location. We are only approximetly 6 hours apart. Maybe we can get some kind of Badgers versus Wolverines thing going.

Heck - If we can get the attendence up maybe we can get some of those Arizona wanabe racers to attend. ;)

Later - Doug

08-08-2011, 10:12 AM
Maybe Spartans vs Badgers. Wolverines are filthy animals. haha
