Anyone who is interested please post up so that I can get an idea of how many.
A quick "sounds fun" would be fine.
And again, ANY and ALL ideas are welcome.
I just want to provide a fun outlet for those involved in the hobby and those who may be curious.

Did you say scale in one of your sentences?

Thanks for taking time out to go check out some spots and take pics.

Those give a great perspective of whats up.

Actually looks promising

Are we allowed on the rocks?

There is nothing posted otherwise. I don't think there will be any prob so long as we aren't idiots.The watershed folks are pretty cool. I think we should set up courses at a reasonable distance from the water to stay on their good side.
The place I want to check ou tomorow might not be the same. May have to be done on the qt if at all we'll see

I took these pic's at Woodside Green Park in Gahanna not to far from your house Bob. You might want to stop and check it out some time. We would need to bring a leaf blower or something.

Thanx Jon,
I will have to fire up the leaf blower and see what else is doin' there.
Its been years since I've been to that park. What is the best way in. The map I pulled up was hard to see.

Spring is on its way and I would like to start thinking about dates. I'm thinking every three weeks and a total of seven events. Each person will be able to toss out 2 of the 7 scores. This will allow for 2 missed events or a bad days or a combo of both.

This is not in stone so as always feel free to post your thoughts.
Also, please post any dates that you know can't work for you so we may be able to plan as best we can

Sounds good.

Dates, I'm probably wide open. I have a few big events I want to attend, but I don't know the dates. Doesn't matter, yet.

Hopefully I will have everything up and running before too much longer and I would be willing to do a series. Who know's what is up this summer but you can count me in. Sounds like a real good time.

Default Getting it together.

Well, I suppose that spring is getting closer so I want to start bringing this thing together.

The short list of venues include:
Griggs
Oakes
Hoover
Toms
Rob's spot in Lancaster
My place.

I think the common number of total events agreed upon was 7.
Yes, I am aware that there are not 7 spots listed. These are the most usable spots to date. If no more usable spots are added we may just recycle one. We do need to be sure that people will be able to charge batteries without worries. Also, I want to make sure food and such is not an issue. All of these spots are quite convenient, some are even near hobby stores From what I know all the places listed the only one that will not work for scalers is my place.
The only spot I can't speak for is Oakes. I have never been there but the pics Dave linked to were sweet. Some of the other guys have been there as well and from what I hear it could be a highlight. I have not spoken with Dave to confirm access yet but my hopes are that this will work out ok with him.

As far as dates:
I have talked this over with many of you in person and most seemed to think an event every 3 weeks wouold work out.

I found by using the 3 week template and starting the 1st Sat.in April.{April 4th} we could run the entire series without hitting any holliday weekends and would wrap up the series in early August. That is early enough to address rain dates if needed.

Each event will cost $5. All money will go towards prizes!!!!
Here are the dates as of now:
March 28--To accommodate those in ECC
April 25
May 16
June 6
June 27
July 18
August 8
August 29{if needed as a rain date}

I think that the venues listed cover a good area. I realize many will not be able to make all events for one reason or another. Thats ok. Each person can throw out their lowest 2 event totals. This will keep things fair and competitive. Although, It is to your advantage to make as many events as possible.

We will be using the progressive point system. This is what is used at Tom's. This means each gate is woth its numeric value in progress points. Gate one is worth 1 point, Two is worth 2 , three is 3 and so on. So, if you have completed gate 3 you have earned a total of 6 prog. points. There are 55 total prog points available by completing gate 10.

I'm sure I have forgotten something so please let me know if you think of what I may have missed.

And please keep sending Ideas for spots I will look into them.

The progressive system is horrible, IMHO.

Impossible for all courses to be set up "progressive." There is a reason why USRCCA doesn't do it that way.

Just my 1.5 cents.

I agree with this Dave.

Also Ya might wanna rethink the start date. There are I think 4 of us who will be in TN at the ECC event the first weekend of April.

I'll offer again to rethink dates but people need to post. I have edited the last post to reflect this.

I am willing to see a show of hands but from the majority of those who will be showing I think this has been the preferred system.. For those against progressive scoring please post your oppinions.

Also Dave, Will we be able to use Oakes for any of the dates?

Yeah I think April 4th is the Tennessee trip?

I can go either way with the progressive points or not. It might do us some good to stick to what is Nationally recognized though?

In regards to dates: We are nearing the time we need to get started so the window for change is starting to close.
Please keep this in mind and I will do what I can to help.
I would like to have this all in stone by Sunday night.
Thanx
