Tomorrows racing – NBHC/ RC Hobbyland Sat Night Series

Hi all,

The St Ives team have been discussing re what time to make a call re racing tomorrow.

The track was bone dry and hard as concrete when I was there this morning stocking drinks fridge.
While I am not concerned about the storm that came through, the continued rain (happening now at my place and possibly continuing overnight) and forecast of more rain tomorrow afternoon with possibly another storm is a concern.
We are very aware of and are strongly considering needs of people travelling from north and south.
Plus there will be a lot of electrical cables running around the ground on race day as well as power for our lighting system. So a storm like today would be a problem.

Will aim to make call by 10.30 tomorrow morning.

Working Bee this Saturday, 21st Jan

Hi all,

Just a reminder that there’s a working bee this Saturday to prepare a new track layout for the next club meeting, hopefully on the 29th and also for the Feb and March St Ives/Ryde Sat buggy series. If you are available to help we will be starting work around 8am Saturday, 21st Jan. If you are coming then we could probably use wheelbarrows, rakes, shovels, etc. Don’t forget gloves. All help appreciated.

First Race Day and Working Bee

Hi all,

Still to decide 1st race day for 2017, it’s looking like 29th January will be be the first and also the AGM will be held on this day.

We are planning some track changes before this and 21st January will be a working bee for the track build. If there are any members or just people who can lend a hand available for this it would be much appreciated – many hands make light work!

Also, see post below for links to RCTech and FB for info on more events.

Hi all,

Happy 2017 and hope all had a merry but safe Xmas.

Still to decide 1st race day for 2017 but please check out the Events thread for the 1st major events of 2017.

In short, St Ives has joined with Sydney (Ryde) and our generous sponsors NBHC & RC Hobbyland, to bring a 4 round, buggies only race series on the 1st & 3rd Sat evenings of Feb & March. See event thread for full details.

We will need to do some track changes before this kicks off. Working bee info to come.

We also need to get an AGM conducted before the Feb events kick off.
