            Nationals are in danger of being cancelled

            Due to a poor commitment from racers, we can not afford to bring Alan out and host this race this year. Expenses are around $3,000.00 for this event and that is not covered by the entry fees. Some of the weekly fees were also used to fund this. Due to the fact that some did not like the rules and thought that they should be allowed to do what they wanted and also not know how to act in public, to the point that vistors would not join because of the arguing about everything. Some felt it better to stay away and race on a home track. They went so low as to race on the same night as our league racing and invite other racers. If you are not man enough to follow rules or able to commet to a world class event, we will be forced to cancel. The hobby can not grow when people act like this. If you want to race in this event, you must post your commitment to what you want to race on here by Friday. Without interest in this, we will cancel the event for this year.

                I'm planning on racing at the Wood Track Nationals at Race Wear if it's still going on. Specifically interested in Scale Auto 1/24 and BRM. I know of at least 2 NJ racers who plan to come for these classes as well. I'm guessing we'd only be able to make the Saturday races though. Hoping the event still goes on.

                  Race is not canceled yet

                  While the Event has not seen many entry requests, I am still committed to holding it if people want to come.
                  We would want to do Friday night, Sat and maybe some Sprints on Sunday. But primarily we need committed racers.
                  Classes that could still be run are BRM and Scaleauto 1:24 Sprints and possibly short Team Races. Plus 1:32 scale LMP Open, yes open to all scale 1:32 LMP Cars no motor limit as long as in a plastic chassis car.
                  Slot.it Group C and a Megane Race.

                  BUT this can only happen if a decent amount of people can attend, otherwise to fly in and Host the Event and take up the Race Wear Tracks for 3 days is not financially viable.

                  SO it is up to the Racers in the NE, in particular Ricky's group. Do you want to attend this race, or should Ricky cancel for this year.

                    Ricky,
                    It is your store. Therefore you should make and enforce the rules. If someone wants to be disruptive, disrespectful or have a general disregard for the other racers, marshal's etc. and the rules, then invite them to leave that day. Welcome them back another day with no hard feelings, if their behavior continues, invite them to leave for good. IMO you should in no way be taking any nonsense from anyone because you are providing a valuable service to the slot car hobby and its participants. one bad apple doesn't necessarily have to spoil the bunch but you need to remove that apple. I wish you luck with getting the racing back on track in a positive direction and I hope to be able to attend some racing again myself.
