Well, it's been a little while so it's time for another meet. Except this time we're doing things a little differently. We're going to meet up at Mid Atlantic Grand Prix in New Castle, DE for some indoor kart racing at 7:00pm and do a little racing, and then afterwards (probably around 8:00pm or so) we'll just all caravan down the road to like Wendy's or something for a bite to eat, maybe even Hooters if everyone is good! The karting place is REALLY nice and it's a lot of fun. Of course, if you don't feel like spending the money to race, you can always just come and hang out during the racing, and then spend your money on the food. Just looking to get people out and about after some of this crappy cold weather we've had. There should be at least 8 guys there that are definites, but anyone who wants to come is encouraged. The more the merrier, and it doesn't have to be just B15 guys. Feel free to invite your friends as well!

Here's some other info on the karting. The initial cost is $25 which includes your membership, head sock, your first race, and a t-shirt. Each additional race thereafter is $17. You end up racing for about 8-10 minutes which gets you 18-20 laps. The carts are really nice as is the track. You will definitely enjoy yourself. And once again, you don't have to race if you don't want to spend the cash.

As far as the food, both Wendy's and Hooter's are only a few miles down the road on Rt 13 so it's not out of the way no matter which one we choose. Both are south of where the karting is taking place. So if you miss out and get there late for racing, you can always drive down the road and look for a bunch of B15's! Also, if anyone needs my phone number feel free to PM me and I'll give it to you.

Now for the details:

When: Wednesday, January 11th meeting at 7:00pm and then leaving to eat around 8:00pm


Where: Mid Atlantic Grand Prix in New Castle, DE (www.midatlanticgrandprix.com) and either Wendy's or Hooter's after racing.

Would've loved to swing by and hang out and meet everybody but I'm in Ohio during the week for work. If there's ever anything on a weekend, I'm in. http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

And I just realized that I missed like 5 other meets in the last couple months... http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif I'll have to check this section more often.

lol - well the thing is that people don't want to be bothered during the weekend which makes no sense to me - so thats why we do it during the week ya know - it's easier for people to get together

Jeff coaches at high schools, they dont actually have clubs they go to for the meets or practice. There is a workout club within two minutes of the campus hills meet area that has a pool. For a single person membership its like $60 and includes all of the workout areas a pool and an all purpose soccor field area. I used to be a member there its pretty nice and new. If you can get a lane its worth it, sometimes it pretty packed.

I don't think I will go to the FA-meet either. The school jeff is competing against is the school i used to swim for so I think I'm gonna catch that for a measly $4

I currently don't have a job. Right now I am working on opening a garage where people will rent garage time and tools off of me and be able to work on their own cars. One of the reasons I have recently joined so many sites is to find out if there is a need for something like this. I will have a real post on it soon. I need to do a poll for people in this area to see if they would actually use something like it.

I sort of have a backer. I have the ability to get large loans because of military background and my dad co-signing them so I will be using loans to start up my business. I will definatly be at the gathering tomorrow and can answer most questions then to ppl interested. Location and price are things I can not answer right now though.
