  1. Hey guys I’ve been tasked with making sure our supplier brings in enough tires for our season. Most likely they will only do one shipment and it takes about three months. I have a short window to confirm a number with them before they send them on the boat. I’ll be reaching out to some of you who I think may be using them this year. If you think you’re going to want some please PM me so we can reserve some for you. We need to know by Monday February 26th. Thanks!
  2. I’ve bought multiple sets. Super comparable to Azenis. I’ve replaced them after one race. I’ve also used them for a second event. The value for the price is hard to beat considering what happens to them out at GMP.
  3. Forums Hacked

    My profile pic has been changed by an unknown hacker. Possibly someone with admin privileges...I’m not naming names. Users Beware!
  4. Anything for 2018

    Hey @Knelsen_204 check out this thread
  5. There is a group of racers who have brought up wanting to discuss a possible spec tire, max treadwear or illegal tire agreement for 2018. How do we feel as a group on this issue?
  6. Yes Don I personally wouldn’t support any formal written rule for this.
  7. $110 for the Westlake Thats $50 cheaper than local 2018 pricing on Azenis.
  8. Everyone is welcome to participate and from the looks of things we could use all the help we can get. We have a short timeframe to sort things out. Let’s use this thread to list who is available and when. We need lots of outgoing people to work the booth to positively promote the club. If you’re available before or after the show we will also need help with set up and tear down. Signup on the sheet please. We are still looking for cars. Currently we have space reserved for 6 cars. Could anyone interested in bringing a suitable vehicle please post below. We have a few lined up but as always are hoping to have all disciplines represented. I believe we a have video display sorted out. Here is the show schedule March 16 3pm - 10pm March 17 10am - 10pm March 18 10am - 6pm SIGN UP SHEET HERE https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ULmhhNo7nK2dEgrvcdFmSPx0uMUPMl4WxbUcwfXz-Is/edit?usp=sharing
  9. The current floor plan is oversold. The organizers are trying to expand their booking.
  10. Gimli Ice Fest is two weeks away. As with every year Gimli Ice Fest is your opportunity to show appreciation to all the volunteers who brave the cold, travel, pay for hotels etc. for us to be able to go out and play. Volunteers out number the racers 3:1. Their commitment level is HUGE. Make sure you show your appreciation by contributing to the WORKERS SCHWAG presentation at Gimli Ice Fest, walk up to them thank them face to face, buy them a drink or do whatever you can to show your appreciation. These individuals are the glue that binds WSCC. Time to arrange your accommodations if you haven’t already done so. Also time to purchase your raffle tickets. Many drivers have already done so. Let’s keep it even and fair for everyone. Get on MSR and get it done.

  18. Awesome Pete! It was great!! Thanks.
  19. Thank you to everyone who participated this weekend. We had a great Volunteer turn out on both days. This is especially remarkable considering the weather. We even saw some new faces...and they returned for a second day. You guys are ALL amazing. Thank you @TI-GOR for coming out early all three weeks and making sure the track is ready to go. Gloria for being available for both days every event to make sure everyone is registered and ready to go. You guys are a huge asset to Ice Race! We had a great turn out for Ice X / Lapping on Saturday. Again lots of new faces and some returned for some laps on Sunday. Thanks @Al Marcoux for teaching all the ice schools this year at Ski pond. We have a HUGE ice race management team this year. Thank you to everyone filling in all the holes to make everything run smoothly. Everywhere you look people are pitching in on so many levels. It takes massive commitment from so many people to run these events. Next stop Portage La Prarie. Like I mentioned in today’s drivers meeting, no community supports us like PLP. Everyone needs to do anything they can to wrangle up as many cars as possible. Reach out to your fellow racers and let’s put on a show.
  20. Wow Peter thank you so much. You are extremely PROMPT!!
