Got the ok from ron to do this at r&v. He is willing to help with setup and materials.

Anyone else want to donate time to set up a course?

Once the date is set I could possibly come up the weekend before and help make some stuff. Have a cottage in Houghton lake so I can go up whenever its needed.

Looks like I'm going to shoot for some time in may.

I'll be building a new crawler for this event.

Anyone want to do cash payouts for the event?
This would mean a small entry fee $10 or so

You guys know about Slide line Rc in West Branch, they have a crawler/scale course on site. They also put on events from time to time.
