Hi all

Just a very quick thread to say hello and a big thank you to Oople for giving us a club section on such a prominent RC forum!

We'll be updating our area with a thread on how we set up the club, and all the details you need to contact or find us, and some tips for beginners who might want to come and join us for a look or to start racing.

Some brief details until we have time to start some detailed threads:

We race 1/10th off road electric, in Hastings Sussex.

Our venue is a full size sports hall, The Y Centre, Hastings, and we race on a 95% carpet, 5% slippery track, 2.4m wide minimum, with a series of professionally made jumps designed to be fun and fast.

We currently race on Sunday nights, once a fortnight. The first meeting is March 9th. Current meetings are evenings 1730-2130.

The venue postcode is: TN37 6RS

We have another thread on Oople with we will endeavour to move to our section, but in the mean time, here's a link:

We also have a Facebook page for those of you on FB; link:

We held an open night on 23rd Feb, and were really pleased to play host to nearly 40 drivers form the south east, including some of the regions top competitors. Here's a short promo video from the night.

Finally, if you'd like to get in touch with us you can do so on here, on FB, or via our email address which is: 1066racing@gmail.com

We're a bit slow off the mark with DM's, PM's etc on Oople or FB as we're all juggling day jobs, so the fastest way to get in touch is with a PUBLIC reply or question! This also helps us as somebody else might want to ask the same thing.

More threads and info soon; we're all flat out preparing for our first meeting on March 9th. See you soon!
