Also,

due to new NCPL rules, only 2 racers allowed on 1 frequency.

If you have concerns, I suggest contacting the CD.

While you folks were 'playing' we were doing a heck of a field clean up and have massive piles of green firewood to burn. So you make the call.

Well, I'm 20 minutes from the field, but we got close to an inch of snow last night, and the wind is howling something fierce.

I can't imagine the race happening, but I'll be there about 9:30..

More like a 100 degrees and some nasty hot gusty winds(Santa Ana's) making it a total cross wind here,,, good thing for some "coldies" in the fridge and some balsa to build something [sm=shades_smile.gif]

This would have been the first time I wore long underware to a race.. It wasn't any better weather in WI..

I hate to see what it's like once we stop the Global Warming.. We won't race until July!!
