When you join the club we can tell you, :p

Good to see you coming down more often, thanks for the support :thumbsup:

You are right about the team we have hear at Oz. There are a number of core members and parents :thumbsup: who put a lot of effort in at the club all year around.

I am sure we will all carry on the good work and carry on from previous years by laying on a good national weekend for everyone, it certainly won't be for the lack of trying anyway!!

The quiz is to be held in the same building as last year as we will be sharing the site with the local youth football association in the evening again this year. But the good thing is that they will be providing a bar for anyone that forgot to go shopping.

I don't want to stick my nose in here, but if I recall correctly you 'learned' from last year that open planning would be best.

now it seems again people will be surprised when they turn up.

I don't want to speak on behalf of other people, but I would imagine that some open comunication with that you have planned will allow everyone to give their opinion if it will work BEFORE the event and less then chance for people to moan AFTER the event.

it really doesn't bother me either way as I wont be racing, but I do like to read and hear about good races that people have on good tracks.

Chrislong
12-05-2009, 11:14 AM
CD is right.

I can hardly remember last year now, I just remember not being so keen (by no means a complaint- just observation) on the profile of the triple and no landing zone. The table top was good, but didn't that come loose? It was tough to downramp this is I remember rightly. I like downramps. But I also remember quite likeing the track otherwise.

I can hardly remember last year now, I just remember not being so keen on the profile of the triple/quad and no landing zone? The table top was good, but didn't that come loose? I can't remember so forgive me if im wrong on that.:confused:

The table top was changed after practice because it was horrendous. I think the Oz team know what is needed, and hopefully they will get it spot on and everyone can come on here on the sunday night / monday morning and praise their efforts :thumbsup:

PS: CD is right. He is mighty at least 1 day a year :lol:

Kopite
12-05-2009, 11:20 AM
They had a round of the BCL a few weeks back, and the table top on the track was v good, with a much longer down ramp.

I trust the Oz guys will provide us with a really good weekend of racing, and I thank them for the effort they're going to be putting in

I know the guys have plans for the grass to be cut around 4-5 more times before the National on a regular basis. Trust the team to get it right and will be fine!!! :thumbsup:

As for the jumps I agree with Stan, great table top at the BCL which will be there for the National, again, trust the team to get it right. It is going to be a great event :thumbsup:

ashleyb4
12-05-2009, 12:22 PM
Grass has been cut on a weekly basis since febuary its thickening up nicely and will be cut short before the event. Last year the grass was meant to be cut again but due to runing out of time and a few problems we just run out of time and help. This year the grass will be cut short. I have severn days off before the national which will consist of lots of grass cutting and organising.

to be fair- I think you have over used the Grass cutting card Danny, as you told me at taly your not a fan of grass tracks any way

I spoke to Jamie at taly and he told me about the jumps Oz now has and how good they are, the club has put a lot of work in to iorn out and past issues

Lee
12-05-2009, 01:01 PM
I think it's fair to say that every club that hosts a national event always puts in 100% effort, i don't think that people come away and think that the organisers couldn't be arsed. Some clubs are lucky, the likes of EPR etc has probably the best off road track i have raced on and the facilities to go with it. Some clubs have to make do with a piece of grass but the effort put in is equal i am sure.

Grass racing is what I grew up with in the North West, I love it!

Chrislong
12-05-2009, 02:08 PM
I can see where Danny is coming from, as the year before last he arrived on the Friday and challenged the length of the grass - the guys pointed out the lawnmower and Danny forfeited the whole evening and cracked on cutting the grass on his own.

So he does have good grounds for his request. But its fair to say, the guys at Oz know what they're doing.. :thumbsup:

Danny McGee

So put your dummies back in!

Gnarly Old Dog
12-05-2009, 02:31 PM
Credit where credit's due.
Danny felt that the grass was too long last year but he was prepared to put his back into it and cut it again himself on the Friday evening when he arrived.

No disrespect meant to any of the club officials who put on a great show last year - just respect to Danny for not just arriving and moaning about a situation that he didn't like - (and also respect to the club for not being offended by his comments or his offer to cut it again to his liking)

I'm sure that Ozfest 09 will be every bit as good as 08 and I'm looking forward to it already.

ashleyb4
12-05-2009, 04:21 PM
If i remember correctly Danny, Plus a few others i think you where in there to chris said the grass was to long they aggreed that they would help cut it i got the mower and started cutting i did a small ammount then danny had a go while danny was doing it the small group who where meant to be helping him disapeared and left poor danny to it.

Is there a venue-related-rules reason why caravans are seperated from tents?

Jonesy
12-05-2009, 07:14 PM
I'm sure Mike or Ash will confirm Stu but it'll be to do with keeping the caravans on the flat ground to the right of the gate I would assume.

I'm sure there is no issues with tents on the right hand side??

IceMike
12-05-2009, 07:14 PM
yer cos tents are noisy and ppl with caravans tend to go down the hill where hookups are.

ashleyb4
12-05-2009, 07:14 PM
We dont like caravans around the track area suposidly it causes interferance. Its just something we do. It also meants the caravans are on the flatter ground so its easier to get on and off.

Yes boss - it would be nice if we can be together - :wub

In the years I've been in the 'caravan' area I've not seen a hook-up - didn't know they they were there.

I don't think caravans cause interference, shite electrical installs do that all by themselves.

I have contacted the Shropshire star and sent them info on this weekends National,(thanks for the tip Jonsey!!!), they said they would try and get it in tomorrows paper, they also may send someone to take photos, and on Monday I will send them a brief race report and some pic's from Jimmy, Please can I have some photos for the newspaper Jimmy??? They also want some photos of local guys with some top drivers, ie, x world champions/European champions and possibly a group photo.

Griff, Thumbs you can run your sc10's about on the triangle track but you will be to be careful on the big main jump as there is no carpet but there is a fresh;y mown track which jonesy chucked down.

I'll be the first to comment from the weekend, what a FANTASTIC event and we have once again shown why 1/10th Off Road is the best class that the BRCA has to offer :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Firstly thanks to Oswestry for hosting the event (myself included as a club member), I thought the weekend went very well indeed from the clubs perspective and other than the odd thing everything was fantastic and ran very well. Special thanks also to everyone who took time to thank the Oswestry guys for their efforts, all comments appriciated

Racing was awesome, the track that we designed and laid suited both classes IMO and I took advantage of this to finsih 14th on both days, my 2 best ever National Results :thumbsup:. Thanks to the first 2 nationals I'll be seeded for Eden Park in the Top 3 heats in 2wd!!!

Hi Guys

Just locked the gate at ozfest at 8.40 (Well i had to go back as i forgot to lock one of the buildings found a padlock in my pocket when i got home :p)

I just want to thank everyone who came i hope you all enjoyed it. I certainly enjoyed helping organise and run the event and also enjoyed racing. Was really nice to have people come up to us and thanks us it makes i all worth while.

Here is what remains...

Well done guys!!!! Please apply for a 2010 national!!!! :thumbsup:

Stu Whyman, Charlie Frazer, Paul, the MC's & the refs all do a great job and put a lot of work in that we don't even notice, we just know the event runs smoothly, but they deserve big appreciation.

Also thanks to the BRCA officials that come to these event free of charge to run these meetings, you are the un-sung hero's!!!!!

Also many thanks to the ref's and help with the MC-ing!!!!! The 2 Tony's made my weekend much easier, thanks!!!!

Looking forward to the report. It may be mostly serious business this time as Vicky was feeling a bit under the weather with a head cold and the heat of the day, so we didn't do some of the mad stuff we planned but it'll wait for EPR-II.

Don't get offended G, I still love you and you're springs are important to me also :lol: If you want me to post them so you have them this week it's no problem boss.
