Hey, GulfRacer! I'll have to look up Gresham and buzz you if I'm ever down your way.
Also, hello, Dan! Where are you located?
I hope I'm not stepping all over a rule by posting the following, but I'm trying to raise awareness for my new digital group in the area. If this isn't OK, please delete, move, or edit this message.
We are the Digital Racing Alliance of Western Washington (DRAWW). We are a casual racing group who enjoy digital slot racing of all kinds, brought together by our region, aka the Pacific Northwest including Washington, Oregon, and even Canada (Vancouver/BC area), and anyone who wants to make the trip to an event in the area. We support and encourage ALL kinds of digital slot racing including, but not limited to: Scalextric Sport Digital, SCX The Digital System, Ninco Digital, Carrera D143/D132/D124/Pro-X, Scorpius, oXigen, Davic, BLST, and even AC2Car! If you have a track that allows lane changing and the sharing of lanes between 2 or more cars, and you're in the area, we want you to know about us, and to know about you. Even if you don't have a track of your own, but like the idea and want to get involved, then please join in! We like all kinds of slot racing, and analog is great, but our focus is on the digital aspect of the hobby.
We have a few outlets for DRAWW activity, so be sure to check those out and use the ones that you're most comfortable with, just to make sure nothing gets missed. My DRAWW web page can be found on my slots web site for quick access to all DRAWW communication outlets. You can also PM or email me for the direct URL.
We also need your help! If you know anyone in the area who is a digital slot racer, or even just curious about digital racing, please point them to us. If you've seen people post in other threads or forums about digital, and they live in the general area of the Puget Sound (Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Vancouver, etc), please point them in our direction. The only way for the DRAWW to grow and become active is to get the people to know about us.
I'm also announcing the first DRAWW race of 2011!
Location: Greg's house (that's me! ).
Date: January 9th
Bring: Yourself. Oh, you can bring cars if you want, but unless you bring a whole SSD racing set, we'll race my cars. Track, Cars, Controllers, snacks and drinks will be provided.
