Great practice last night! But I think Rick got just a bit too much water on the track!

I don't race with you so you are in the clear

I told the kid during our second heat that what he was doing was very distracting. I didn't even think about it when I went up for the main but sure enough the same behavior started. I'll just remember to not stand next to him.

I've been in and out of racing many times since the mid 90's and have gone through some "intense" periods myself, so I get it. I'm just not in that frame of mind this time around. Just trying to have fun with my son and friends.

Keeeping quiet on the drivers stand is a good idea. I am probably one of the worst offenders & really try to keep my mouth shut! The only person I ever yell at is me. But sometimes others may not know that the Doug I am talking to is me. Also talking trash to my fellow pit buddys Rick & Steve. That is all done in fun and not ment to disrupt anyone. Except them of course.

In the heat of battle we all do and say things we may not even be aware of. PLEASE! if there is ever a time that something that I or anyone has done that is disruptive to you. Tell me or that person after you have cornered for that race. This give everyone a chance to calm down and think clearer. If you do not feel comfortable talking directly to the person Let Kraig, Hopper or someone know as soon as possible so they can handle it correctly.

Leaving a problem to fester will only make it worse. We may not even be aware that we bothered someone.

Thats a really good start. Too many rules and people start forgetting. Hopefully common sense will reign supreme.

I'd also like to add that in addition to no unnecessary yelling on the stand that you remain in your position on the stand even if your car breaks and that you cannot jump up and down and pace back and forth on the stand during the race either.

I had to deal with that last Saturday. It got so bad that during the main I almost stopped my truck to change spots on the drivers stand.

I am also a ROAR member. However I have misplaced my card. Does anyone know how to get a duplicate? I did try a while ago to go online and do it but just kept running into dead ends.

Lets face it guys. We have one of the best racing facillitys in existsnce anywhere! It is up to ALL of us to use common sense and help make the racing experience as enjoyable as possile for everyone.

Especially the kids! Some of them are the best marshalls!

Teaching them the proper way to conduct themselfs only helps them, but will also benifit all as they become the seasoned racers.

I feel that they (Kids) should absolutly! be out on a reasonable spot with an adult or parent. This does not mean that the parent is to do all of the cornering. More as like a Base coach in baseball. Help them make good decisions.

Tony you are right. I think we used to mention that rule earlier in the summer maybe but have not made any mention of it recently and obviously not enforcing it so no fault of anyone at all. Its targeted toward the very young kids that obviously can not safely be on the track. The kids that do not know to look before running onto the track or that could be more easily hurt by a car or knocked down because they are so small. Your son does a good job imo. Thank you for teaching him to be safe and pay attention.

Certain kids do a great job but a few of them are a little too young imo to be out there with any rc cars at all.

The next step may be to have every single racer or person stepping out onto the track to become a roar member. Seems like that is where this discussion is heading.

I don't have a problem with the rule. I am not arguing about the rule. Tracks can make any rule they want.

It's just hard to follow it if you were never made aware that it existed. Get it?

BTW, me and my son have raced at NorCal just as much as Delta, and guess what, nobody has said anything when the kids take to the track to turn marshall.

Anyone is capable of suing the track if they get hurt. I don't see a difference between a parent suing for their kid or an adult suing for themselves. A litigious person is a litigious person.

With regards to holding everyone to the same standard.... what I mean is that anyone , regardless of age or ability should be held to the same standard, so much as that if its obvious that their age or ability cause them to not meet this "standard" then they should be asked to find an appropriate substitute.

If Delta decides they don't want kids to corner for whatever reason, that is fine by me. Me and my son have raced their several times and this is the first I have heard of this rule. It's too bad because I think a lot of the kids have just as much fun cornering that they do racing and there is no better time to teach them the responsibility of cornering. I am 100% in agreement with the safety concerns but I think that is easy to address by not allowing the kids to corner in dangerous spots or during any of the SCT classes.

I'm just trying to protect the owners. I think that a sign should be posted that states like a golf course, participate at your own risk. Or on the sign up sheet a release of liability.

I disagree that a 10 year old kid can be held to the same standard. Not saying they are not capable, just saying that they shouldn't be held to the same standard. I can get mad at an adult for no paying attention but it's difficult to hold a 10 year old accountable.

I also agree with hopper. These guys do a hell of a job running the track for our enjoyment. Anything we can do to help is always a good thing.

As a parent I take it very seriously as the last thing I want is my kid to get hurt. On the flipside though, I don't think its fair to single out the kids and their parents and make them sign forms or have special rules that apply only to them.

I have seen dozens of adults take their sweet time flipping certain cars but will run, jump and dodge to flip their friends cars. Happens all too often.

ALL corner marshalls should be held to the same standard, regardless of age OR physical ability. That was the point of the sarcasm in my previous post. I didn't mean to offend anyone and apologize if you or anyone else was.

We are all drivers so I think we all understand the importance of the corner marshalls as we all rely on them.
