May 5th is free comic book day across the country. With the addition of King’s Cache in the store, we need to move the Thunderslot race from May 5th to another date. I would propose that we double up on May 19th on the series races as the following weekend is Memorial Day. I’d like all discussion to occur in this thread to keep it contained for easy reference. We will finalize the date at the April club meeting on April 14th.March 11, 2018 at 4:00 PM #11968
Shawn, doubling on May 19 sounds reasonable.

All – If we are going to double up on a race I would rather see it on the 12th and move the club meeting to the 19th. My reasoning – if your Thunderslot car is not working well you will have to run two races with it if we double up on the 19th. If we race them on the 12th and you have an issue you have the whole week to sort it out before running it again. Thoughts?

Marty, that basic logic is sound. So 1 more vote for the 12th for Thunderslot #3. and moving the May meeting to the 19th.

I will be gone May 11 through the 23rd, and I would rather not have to miss two Thunderslot races (besides someone else having to be race manager). I see that the calendar has been changed. Does this mean that a decision has already been made? In this forum I only count two votes for the May 12th date. Would the May 5th date just mean that we would have to park in the other lot? Or is King’s going to fill up the rally track table? Could we schedule a race on the 26th before Rally practice instead of the May 12th or May 19th race?

Lets dicuss today. Russ – what are your specific recommendations?
Do you want to move move #3 to April 19
and #4 to April 26?

First: Clarification on the May 5th date. Did King’s say we can’t have a race on that date? Will it just mean we have to park in the other lot?
My preference is not to have races on both May 12th and May 19th. It does not matter to me which of those dates is a single race day. Other than that I am open to alternate dates.March 17, 2018 at 12:18 PM #12006
First off, there should have been no changes to the calendar as I said we would discuss and finalize at the April meeting. I’m not happy with this change being made prematurely.
Rudy told us about that date and suggested we not hold a race that day. That’s why we’re having this discussion.

As long as there is time, I believe that scheduled club meetings are the best time to make race schedule changes. The give and take of a round table discussion is more effective than email or forum threads. Discussions on this forum are useful to get an idea of options and people’s ideas, but I believe nothing beats a face-to-face meeting. It is difficult enough to accurately convey one’s opinion with words alone, without tone, inflection, body language, charm and charisma, to influence opinion. I think a month out is enough time to make a change. If time is short, as it was with the COTA Ferrari race, the forums can be used to arrive at a consensus, with a mass email alerting everyone to vote in the forum.
