If you can get back to the dragstrip that would probably work great... they seemed to enjoy us being there.

No location set as of yet... I had planned to work on that this week but I will do so next week to see what the majority of the votes are... I was just going to get an open field and work around that but we'll see.

I was thinking of keeping it around the same time as the last 2 events... some time in February.

We missed the drag the next morning... dinner was just a spontaneous thing that I threw together. 20 smart owners at Ruby Tuesdays is a great thing!!

Why not a two part event, Saturday at Old Town and Sunday at the track. The kid who was running the race track said that Sundays are called "Sunday Funday", it is very informal. I did 20 runs last year. Got the lights mastered after that.

The place that I was thinking of (big open field) is less than a mile from a bunch of restaurants and it's right next to the airport... I just wanted to get peoples suggestions to see what they would like to do the most... but in the end, it will be what it will be lol

All I can promise is hours of fun! Oh! and I'm definitely making sure there's an area to race our RC smarts I bought me one on the way back from NC

Once I get the location then I'll be working on sponsors... lots of work to do!

That was a thought as well... just in case it rained on one of the two days

Please spread the word that the event is on!!
Hey I got a suggestion; I've been missing more of K W's events than not due to it being too early. I can't be anywhere before noon; and it's usually too hot anyway.
-I like the idea of Orlando Speedworld Dragway on East Colonial. Saturday Night there while Central Florida Racing Complex would have us on Sunday.(former is 1/4 mile, latter is 1/8 mile)

-the 1st anniversary was a blast so I'm hoping the 3rd anniversary can be a two day event: (That's how Mustang clubs start out, 1st couple of years are one day events, then two, then 3, 4, now 5 or more)

-ITMT ; any time you feel like putting together weekend "fun runs" down International Drive...

We might go back to the race track in Orlando if I can take a day first and run a metal detector over the place. The flat I had last year was a sidewall slice that made the tire unusable - it's surprising the fix a flat got us home.

I heard comments from others that there was a lot of loose metal around that place. Can't afford too many venues like that!

I kind of like the idea of a two day event, which might include the track for those that are interested. Being fairly new to FL it would be nice to see different locations.
