    great idea guys, they really appreciate it when we come out and help. It would go along way to showing them that we don't hold a grudge. I am already committed for this weekend or I would be out there too.

    Cam and I are going for sure. If anyone else wants to come just show up at 0900. Tim Rosche mentioned that they could use shovels and a skill saw.

    Just saw this. Would LOVE to help out the car club, but I have a prior hairstyling appointment this weekend.

    I can't make it due to a scheduling error.

    It seems they were a bit cautious to ask us for help given what they were forced to do with the schedule this year. They were very welcoming and glad to have our help (and not happy having to give us the short end of the stick with the schedule), and will give us more notice of future work parties.

    There is a lot to do before race season, and some of the work they are doing is with regards to things that will benefit us when we do use the track. Based on today, showing our support at their work parties has potential to benefit both clubs and improve communication and relations.

    The SCCBC guys seem very sympathetic to the WMRC, and they really appreciated our help. They seemed genuinely interested and concerned about what we had to say regarding the changes they're making.

    It's also clear that there is no love lost between them and the drag racers. They complain about exactly the same things we do. I think that we should be trying to build bridges with the SCCBC since we're definitely going to need their help if we ever want to get another road course built in this province.

    Sorry I missed it but I'm in Indianapolis for the Dealer Expo this weekend.
    Great to hear that we had a few WMRC members out there.

    How do the track changes look? Anybody take any pics?

    Thanks for the effort to those that went. Andrew is right, we have to make sure we offer a strong community to road racing in BC no matter how many wheels we use.

    I agree. If I didn't already have plans I would have been there too. There is no doubt in my mind that the scheduling fiasco was not a contrived scheme. It was a royal screw-up from the start and while I may not know exactly how it came about, I also don't care to dwell on it. Whats done is done.

    I'm still working with Al on the PA improvements. I think it is going to be a huge improvement.

    Maybe I should just add a reminder here for both new and established members that the PA is also transmitted so you can tune ANY FM RADIO to 96.7 (that's WMRC-FM on your radio dial) and hear the PA announcer. You can hear it clear down to the start of the drag strip.

    Does any radio have a dial any more?

    Maybe the promotions crew should start selling radio ad time as another revenue generator?

    I may just have to crawl up into the booth and do some announcing this year...

    Your efforts were noticed:

    "Even 2 young guys from the Motocycle club came out"

    Guess the SCCBC site doesn't have spell check :p

    Oh, if Ted was involved with this, I'd be all over it. It would be too easy. :devil:

    It's good to be noticed.
