    Nov 11 Second Tuesdays Gathering @TBC Karting 6pm. To get general information please contact Rob Lay at rlay@ferrarichat.com.

    We actually won't go on the track until about 6:45, but the bar will be open for a little happy hour at 6pm. There is a large group that night, so we'll probably only have one track and run 6-7 karts at a time. Good news is they'll have 12-14 karts for each track, so we shouldn't have to wait for recharge.

    They're still waiting on some parts from Europe and they are working hard on improvements. We'll give them a shot this month and next, then decide about next year.

    Sure, bring girls. They should look like Britney Spears or Lucy Lu and not drive too fast.

    I think I can make this one.

    Is it still the same pricing structure as before that the old management gave us?

    Yes, I believe so, it was either $30 or 35 for 3 races.

    It was $30.

    I'll probably be there -- Tam's fussing because she's afraid the someone will crash me and take out the knee.

    I gotta tell you, though, "large group", "waiting for parts", etc really sounds like they haven't changed their act at all.....hope I'm wrong.

    Should be a good 10-15 turnout. Not sure about the garage parking yet. It's not supposed to rain tomorrow, I'll just try and if it's blocked off, then I'll just park out front.

    Software release, crisis mode? Busy? ...I don't know anything about that. :D

    Just heard back from TBC, they will open the garage up for us, if not then I'll just park out front. I'll be there at 6 for a beer. We won't head out on track until 6:45 or so.

    Good news is the GM came over and talked to us awhile. He appologized for previous management and let us know he was working hard to improve things. They're hiring some new mechanics and ordering parts to get the karts fixed up right.

    The karts weren't too bad tonight. There were a few that were off. Worse part was the timing system wasn't working right. I think some was the employees mixing up the drivers. We didn't get on the track until probably 7:30, but we did our 3 races pretty quick and were out of there before 9.

    We'll keep going and hopefully see improvements each time.
