Tracks going to be 75% wood 25% carpet roughly (Blame my solicitor )

Table space there should be plenty a minimum of about 4ft wide I should think, power will be supplied, your own 4-gang extension might be handy to have but we should have adequate power to each table.

The loop currently doesn't have carpet but there could be a mat put over that area to stop the loop being lifted anyway.

Tyres wise most people in the club run a mixture of either yellow full spikes or yellow minispikes. Minipins work well once the tracks been cleaned by a couple of heats too.

Should be a good event, will there be any more Dublin drivers in attendance than the 3 already entered?

It's hard to say Stephen. There are a half dozen or so who all have good intentions of going but have family and/or work commitments - so won't know until the day before.

I'll check with everyone on Sunday, and maybe organise some carpooling.

Pre-entry is not a requisite but it would be nice to help take the guesswork out for food numbers

Just a final reminder for those who intend to race on 17th to let the club know so we can get an idea of numbers and work out the timing of the Heats etc.
We plan to run a separate Novice Heat and final to cater for the younger and less experienced drivers who attend.
Hopefully we should have 3 minutes between Heats and we intend to start the computer and let it run on automatic.

Alas, it's in a church hall, so a beer race ending with jumping through a firey hoop is not on

Just getting packed up for tomorrow.

There'll be a printer coming with the race timing equipment, will some one bring paper with them to print out heat listing and results on.

Young CVMCC member Aaron Vance held his nerve well today to take his B44 to both Wins in the "A" Finals. Visitors Derek McCloskey and William White battled for runners up spot with Derek getting the call due to his qualifying.
The "B" Final saw myself take 2 wins with Ed Acheson second and Warren Cooper 3rd.
Victory in the 2 Wheel drive class was William White ahead of Stephen Carson and Colin Morrison taking 3rd.
Photos to follow...
On behalf of the club I'd like to thank everyone for their support and I'll post the money raised for the newly opened Childrens Hospice in Killadise.

Hey,

Thanks to everyone we met up there today. It was great to see everyone and the warm welcome and food were great.

I was fit for nothing after the day, so it was straight home after the racing.

It's good to see buggy racing alive and well everywhere.

I'm sure that there will be lots more inter-club meetings in the future.

MiCk B. :-)

Thanks for the days craic at Fivemiletown, it was interesting to see the place in daylight! Good to get a lot of track time too - no problem with running the two classes with the way heats amd finals were set up.

It was great being back at my old stomping ground, this time with cars that were actually properly screwed together and a modicum more skill than when I last raced there!

Credit goes to all who travelled a fair distance (complete with their AMB system - CVMCC members now covet radio-based timing tech!) to get there, notably Mick, Derek and William (whom I last saw supposedly following me to the Valley Hotel, instead following Ed towards the M1...), Ed, Pierce (who did very well to get his B4 round a 2wd unfriendly surface), and the organisers, Stephen (his brainchild), Henry, Jim and Fiona, and all the other CVMCC members who supported the event. Kudos to Aaron for being so darn talented and winning the 4wd title, and to Will, who would have put his CR2 on the podium if he'd run it in 4WD - astonishing!

One thing I note from the 2wd podium - definitely no shortage of hair there...
