And lets not forget Ash, a very strong team from the club supporting the National to cater for everyone!

I'm realy looking forward to this one. Flat grass, a couple of jumps and a level playing field for EVERYONE.

Ash, what jumps can the drivers expect?

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!!

Random :eh?:

Im looking forward to Ozfest 09, are there any plans for the Saturday night in the function suite? The quizes and stuff are great fun.

Will team etcetera etcetera be there in force? :lol:

IceMike 12-05-2009 10:29 AM

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.

Southwell 12-05-2009 10:47 AM

Good luck with the build guys, can't wait for this one! :thumbsup:

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.

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

Chrislong 12-05-2009 11:21 AM

Cool, looking forward to it. Lets all pray for the cloud to clear, sun to come out and wind to drop.

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.
