  1. Bless you Dave. I knew when you first introduced yourself to me it was going to be good to know you. We'll have to check over the rest of our speaker mikes and see what we have left. See you next weekend.
  2. Looks excellent Mike. As long as they don't line up in the same groove within the footprint. Might want to measure the footprint lengthwise of a loaded tire on a car just to make sure but I think having all the lines pretty well eliminates that possibility. I gather your 2.3 inch spacing gives you the nine per foot you were after. Maybe before you drill lay out a 69 inch strip and try it with a foot long ruler to make sure there's no place it will exceed the spec. Scott
  3. Count me in for tire building. Just let me know where and when. Scott
  4. Nice going! I sort of guessed you might be blessed. That will be a remarkable kid. Can't wait to meet her/him.
  5. Bob Zimmerman is a friend of mine who has been active with WSCC for quite a bit longer than I have. Some of you will have seen some of his vehicles at the track on lapping days. Zim has been a helping hand to many of us over the years. He's a fabricating genius. His aluminum bodied hand built Lotus 8 has been popular on lapping days in years past.. It is powered by a bored out aluminum Rover V8. Bob has leant a hand to many of us over the years with our competition cars and never managed to charge us very much, if anything. Zim would never ask any of us for help but I think he will make good use of whatever we can put into this fund so he can re-tool to some extent and continue creating his remarkable vehicles. It might be fun if any of you who have pictures of any of Zim's amazing vehicles were to share them on this forum. Scott
  6. As usual we are looking for volunteer workers for our final weekend of the year coming up at the end of this week. Corner workers are a particular priority of mine as Chief Marshal. If you like being close to on track activities, this is for you. In particular I am looking for people to staff our 4 corner stations. At this the last event of the year we encourage all Time Attackers and Racers to bring a gift for our volunteers. At the end of the day on Saturday we'll have a draw type auction where you workers get to choose your gift from the Swag Table. If there is some left it will be distributed in a similar auction at the end of the day on Sunday. If you are doing this for the first time we meet outside the concession building at 8:45 Saturday and Sunday morning and you'll get your work assignment then. On the job training for newcomers will be organized then so make sure you identify yourself to me when you get there. Scott McDonald, Chief Marshal
  7. Welcome back Dave. Don't be sensitive about age. I'm 81 and just getting warmed up so I have lots of room for you. Bless you for thinking of us. Come and introduce yourself when you get there. I think the workers meeting is at 8:45. Scott McDonald, Chief Course Marshal.
  8. We are prepared to handle a few newcomers. If you haven't participated in hot laps at Giimli before, you will need to undergo an orientation. That meeting starts at 11:00 am and you will need to attend that or you won't get on the track until later in the afternoon. Registration is on Motorsportsreg.com. Look around this forum and find the easy signon for that website. No walk-up entries this weekend, no cash.
  9. Its Friday only Spencer. Starts at noon but come and be prepared to take part in a newcomers orientation at 11.
  10. I can confirm that there will be lunch for the volunteers. SCott
  11. Registration is now open on Motorsport Reg: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2020-wscc-race-event-1-season-opener-rr-ta-gimli-motorsports-park-370765 Earlybird discount ends on Wednesday, July 15.
  12. We are still scrambling to get ready but the July weekend is on for sure. Would those of you who are coming please drop in here and let us know who you are. Scott McDonald
  13. Check the poll forum guys. We are racing. Find some other racers. Scott
  14. We are running on July 17-19. Check my post on the Road Race string about the poll for more detail. Scott McDonald, Road Race Director
  15. The poll results indicate we have enough racers and Time Attackers to at least break even financially. We will need a lot of help with this small an amount of lead time. At this time I am still looking for a Registrar which is a quite huge job the week before the race. We will need some physical help on the Friday of the weekend to repair the 2 marshal station barriers that got damaged. Let me know if you can do some end of day hands on at that on the Friday after the hot lapping is over.. The event will be a few days appearing on MSR and the late registration date will be moved up a week closer to the race weekend. Please get your name in as soon as it opens up so I can stop worrying about the money issues. If all the yeses from the poll and a few of the maybes come we'll be ok. But if everybody comes that's even better. We'll attract more racers and that would be a nice surprise and much more fun for everybody. Thanks for your patience and I'm looking forward to seeing you there. Scott McDonald, Road Race Director. PS to Dason: Will you get out a shout to our wonderful crop of volunteers.
