Minutes from the 1/25/2015 meeting conducted at the Huntsville Public Library.
We will be meeting Sunday, January 25th at 1pm-3pm at the library in meeting room A/B, race directors for this year need to attend this meeting. If someone want's to race direct but can't make it, they need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Any races without assigned directors will not be run.
The tentative agenda for the 2015 club meeting this coming January 10th is attached to this post. Please check it out and have your ideas ready when you show up. We are expecting a large group for the meeting, so it will be important for all participants to have their ideas well thought out and ready to discuss.
All the decisions made during the meeting will be posted up here as soon as possible. The race schedule will also be updated after the meeting.
We will be meeting Saturday, January 10th at noon to set the racing schedule for 2015 and pick race directors. The meeting will be held in meeting room A/B at the Huntsville Madison County Public Library. This meeting is open to the public and everyone is invited to attend.
The weather for this weekend looks too cold to race so we will not be racing. If warm weather returns any time soon, we'll try to hold a makeup race which will be announced here and on Facebook.
There is still off-road racing at the Warehouse Raceway in Helena, AL and at Thunder R/C in Nashville, TN so make sure to support the indoor tracks that let us race all year.
The dirt oval races scheduled for November 8th and November 22nd have been cancelled due to cold weather. We'll post next year's dirt oval schedule soon. In the mean time, many of our local racers will be racing indoors at Thunder R/C and elsewhere.
