ok, so whats with people that aren't even in arizona voting!!!!!!! (twisted!!!!) (nicholsracing) we just won't take their votes into account.

i have a couple ideas, you guys let me know what you think.

1) At the next event i will bring all my comp stuff (tennis balls, score sheets, etc) those that want a comp can set it up and run it. Those that don't want a comp can go crawl for fun, do testing, etc.

2) Looks like we have enough interest, do you guys want to alternate every 2 or 3 weeks between a comp and a get-together. I was leaning more towards every 3 weeks to do an orgazined event, alternating between comp and get-together. but it's up to you guys, so let me know.

i'm just trying to find ways to make crawling fun for as many of you as possible. throw out some ideas, and let me know what you think of mine.

Thanks Mike, the stronger "crawler presence", the better! The rocks/logs are a good idea, bring 'em! I'm gonna try to build some sort of short obstacle course that we can show off on. We'll even let 'em try their stock TMaxxes on it or something... I'll probably get some concrete blocks or something too.

I traded my maxx hybrid to Mitch up there too, if 'ya didn't know.

See you there!

-Rich


P.S. Bring some crappy bodies for your trucks, it might make my paint look better

ok guys, we need to start working on the may 7th event. we need to decide where and how it's going to happen (comp or get-together). let me know if you are definitely coming and if so where you would like to go and if you want to do a comp or get together.

Yep I'll be there. Best day for me to hang out and shoot the crap will be Friday before the event starts. We'll be at tech and having a show and shine. Fell free to stop by and say hello, I'd like to meet all of you. Friday the 13th, we'll be there starting at 10 am. You can pick up $5 discount coupons at Driven, Fly-N-Hi, OffRoad Unlimited, or Desert Rat locations across the Phoenix Area.

Sounds good Kevin, I'll do whatever I can to help. I'm also down for UROC. Bambi has the day off, and I think she wants to go because she missed WE-ROK. So if you want to, you can ride with us. Are we bringin' the rc's to the event?...I plan to.

yeh, i guess it can't hurt to bring the r/c's. if we can't use them they'll just sit in the trunk.
