By the power vested in me (by me) I hereby offer SoCal FE's sponsorship of any class deemed appropriate.

Put me down for :

P-Offshore (:spy:)
P-Ltd Mono
P-Sport Hydro

P-Ltd Offshore
P-Ltd Cat
LSH
P-Mono
Jersey Skiff ( Oh wait :sad:)

D. Newland
10-29-2012, 01:36 PM
Thanks for the SoCal sponsorship!

Skiffs and Crackerbox didn't make the list this year because of the limited #'s we've had in the past and I wanted to make room for P-Ltd Cat. However, we'll add them if we get 3 racers that want to run them. We've always been flexible at this event.

I think we had 20 racers last year...? Spectators-yes. Our pond is part of the Scottsdale parks system, complete with a concrete walkway/bike path and a frisbee course next to the pond.

Nice, H! I've got no time to build one, so my Insane will be running another season. I talked to Pags last night. Lock down the flight, Mike!

Due to a recent office move and a host of household items that needed my attention, I've neglected keeping this thread updated like in years past. I'll get on it in December. Have no worry, though. My fleet is as strong as ever. I left the '12 Nat's with barely a scratch and a bent pushrod. Also, the Az competition keeps getting better.

I will say this, our 2013 race will be our best yet. I've fielded calls/texts from guys that haven't been to our race before. The planets will align for WW 9!

If anyone has any questions, please let me know.

If you're on the fence, make the commitment. You won't regret it.

Ok, since this is a repeat performance of last year, where I didn't attend a single club race, I need to dust the cobwebs off my boats and see if they still run! I'm in for all 3 days, same classes as last year. I need to repair my LSH, so tentatively put me in for that class also. Can't wait to see everyone again!

I am planning on coming, however I won't know for sure until beginning of February . Just went to court today for my arraignment and have to go back on the 28 . If charges get dropped I will celebrate by going to WWIX if I'm stuck with fines and classes then it would be hard to justify it . I do have high hopes for he case being dismissed.

I picked up a pursuit off the swap shop for p mono ( I know I should have got a cyberstorm but felt like I got a pretty good deal on the pursuit) so if I'm able make it I'd like to run LSH, p mono, p offshore, limited sprint cat

New house a couple years ago has put a slight damper on boating. Plus the pond situation around here hadn't been good until we hooked up with the nitro club last summer. They even let the WI boys come and play. Badger nitro club let in electrics last summer too so I had to go there to remind Peterson that speed kills.
I did get the address from Dan.

I actually had slush accumulate on a few areas of my roof last night. I knocked some off, ran inside and threw it at my kids as they were thumbing their I-Pods.

The forecast is perfect for this weekend.

I am so envious of you guys! Logistically things just weren't possible for this year but I'm thinking next year!

I guess it's just an example of the news media making a mountain out of a mole hill. The local news here would have you believe that you guys had a blizzard come through.

Just got home from work, blowing the cob webs off the boats. They haven't been in the water since last years Winter Warmup! Now that is dedication at its finest! I anticipate on getting my butt kicked, but will have a great time at the event.

A special thank you to the guys that made the commitment to travel to our race this year. Tyler, Tony and Jim from the So Cal area and Howard, Dan, Lee, Doug and Sean from the midwest/north. We had another great event this year, with only a few weather related set-backs. Friday we found ourselves during most of Round 2 with a wind-shift that made for a pond full of debris/crap from the previous flood/rainstorm and Sunday was down-right windy! Very sporty conditions, but we forged ahead and had a great day of racing. Fortunately, we realized that our trigger fingers actually work and we probably had less DNF's than on Saturday (which was picture-perfect).

The competition was spectacular and the vibe was solid. More later once I get caught up on a few things...

It was great meeting all of you. It’s nice to put some faces to the screen names.

Tony,
Nice job on the videos and pics. It’s wonderful to have some footage as a keepsake from this event. The AZ club really went out of their way to make us travelers feel welcome. The club provided us with tables, chairs, water, Gatorade, generators, power strips, lunch, pop up tents, you name it!!! AMAZING!! THANKS GUYS!

A special thanks to Allen, a new member of the AZ club, for all of his help to the WI crew.

Some lessons I learned from the AZ race.
------------------------------------------------
#1. Always have a backup of your favorite heat racing prop. I lost mine on the first day due to floating debris, and my whip wasn’t the same after.
#2. Turnigy 120 ESCs need an extra cap bank. 3 of us lost the capacitors on them during low throttle racing. They work great for full throttle racing, but if you have a REALLY windy day that requires multiple laps with half throttle or less… Look out.

After a few years away it was good to see everyone again and meeting others who have joined in the fray. It may have turned into more of a "Winter Blow Out" on Sunday instead of "Warm Ups", but it was still a blast. Thanks to Dave and the rest of the crew for hosting a fun weekend of racing.

I never got time to shoot pictures or video so I was glad to see that Tony caught some of the antics. In the wind-blown OPC heat you can see my boat take flight in front of the drivers stand only to submerge for a few seconds. From the stand we were watching a trail of bubbles as it played submarine and scooped up some muck from the bottom before it shot back up.

Ron, I brought mine to see if Me & Pat could have a fun/grudge race but his wasn't ready. Two Crackerbox racers, Gary and Dick said they'd be intetrested in JS's so we'll see what happens next year. It's a shame that more people aren't getting on the JS bandwagon, I'm with you in that these are SO MUCH FUN !

Newland is a tough nut to crack. He doesn't get nervous when you're on his tail. I love it when the racing is this close.:ohmy:

...but a 1st place in P-Ltd Sport Hydro or P-Sport Hydro has alluded me for a few years now. You and that Peterson character had me covered in each of those classes.

I wonder what I'm going to have to do for next year....Hmmm.
