Gravity Racing Team Report
No. 2 ~ December 26th, 2015
This report and all that follow are public and designed to inform Gravity Team & NASTE members regarding progress, needs and upcoming events in regard to the current project to build and race a gravity powered adult race car by the 3rd Saturday in August of 2016.
There are currently eight team members including Dennis Hart, Bill Bostic, Jeff & Amy Fields, Al Christonson, Greg Petrolati, Jimmy Jones and Mitch .
Since the last report, I have sold 5 more shares bring our total capital to $200 less 7 dollars to Goodwill for a very nice upholstered chair that I have modified to serve as the cockpit chair (a perfect fit).
I also revised the livery to a more conservative black, grey, silver and red. It looks much better.
In the little available time before Christmas (working 3 days a week at my substituting job) I have been trying to clean out my shop, which is not easy as we have our two sons and families and junk currently living at our place. Happily, my youngest son and family (including cat and dog) is moving into their own place on January 1st. We love them all, but it has been a trial with all this cold, wet weather.
I hope to have it ready by January 7th so you all can have a look, if not, it might have to wait until we return from Kauai in March to begin in earnest. I will also be purchasing additional materials as good deals arise. The director of the Salem SBD is still looking for used hardware or a car we can salvage parts from.
We still have lots of time and I want to be careful and not waste money and (or) materials.
As always, I welcome your good ideas and (or) input.
