Hey!  Can any of you southern guys or gals explain something I saw on the weather report for Ft. Myers this weekend?  There was this picture of a large, round, yellowy thing along with these really big numbers for temperatures .  We haven't seen anything like that on our weather reports this year and I just wanted to see what it meant!   Wink Wink Wink Looks like a great weekend is in store!!

The full schedule is there on the website.  You need to scroll down to see more than five races at a time.  Email me if you have any questions.

4  Race and Event Announcements / ARMA Races / ARMA Board of Directors Annual Meeting on: November 30, 2013, 06:40:11 PM
Every year the ARMA Board of Directors meets to review the season, receive updates on events for the following year, and discuss rule and procedure changes.  Every effort is made to solicit suggestions from ARMA racers since we believe that our racers are the driving force behind the success of this organization.  A preliminary agenda has been compiled utilizing the input provided by racers at the season ending finals.  ARMA racers who were unable to attend finals and wish to submit suggestions or items for the agenda should email me at the address below.   Feel free to email any questions as well.  Any submissions need to be received prior to the December 14th meeting. 

If you emailed me at any point over the past month or so and did not receive a response, feel free to send it to me again.  A glitch with my phone streaming resulted in some emails getting "misdirected".  I believe I have responded to all of those messages, but I want to be sure I did not miss any.

Thanks!

I would like to know how it works, when used on a machine that has the steering column at the same angle it was from the factory, as the one pictured looks to be on a column that is straight up and down...illegal unless that is the original angle. seems like at the correct angle, it would be really angled.


ARMA's rules do not specify that the steering column remain at the factory angle, therefore the mowers mentioned are NOT illegal.

Lester- Who is bringing the mower down for you? Sounds like an interesting project.  Sorry to hear about Thomas' motorcycle accident.

Thinking about making the Friday race but I get off work at 5 in wadesboro nc so I probably wouldn't get there until 6 or 6:15 would that be 2 late or not?
It looks like you will be arriving just as everything is getting ready to wrap up for the driver's meeting.  We will do our best to take care of you, and anyone else who is cutting it close on time.  But, as they say, the show must go on.  We do have a lot to get in and a tight schedule to work with.

Just a few more days!!!  woo woo woo

8  Race and Event Announcements / ARMA Races / Points, Shelby NC Info and Updates on: September 27, 2013, 05:51:22 AM
There were slight changes to some points as errors were brought to my attention.  The spreadsheets have been adjusted, so please look them over.  There will be NO changes made to the points once they are finalized after this weekend's event in Shelby, NC.  I will post a cut off date for correction once I update the points following Shelby.

We have been in contact with Shelby several times, as their fair management has changed and there have been some issues getting correct information concerning race times.  Below is the most up-to-date information we have.  I will be unable to attend due to a county level evaluation team visit on Monday.  I hope everyone races safe and has fun!  I know many are traveling to try to make some last minute advances to their points!  Wink

Bert-
I am sure if the fair heard that the Badger State posse was in attendance they would bring over the Grand Champion steer for a personal meet and greet.  Reputation is far reaching you know!!!  Wink

Points have been updated on the ARMA site.  They will download, not immediately open.  So, you will need to go to wherever your computer stores downloads and retrieve it from there.  If you wish, I will send them to you directly via email.  Feel free to contact me directly if you want to do this.

Thanks!!!

What a great weekend at two stellar tracks!  Thanks to all who assisted and made this event possible!  For those who did not take advantage of the offer of sleeping at Celebration House, you will definitely have to stop by next year.  What a beautiful place to rest and refuel!  Racing was close and fast both days with some memorable moments at both tracks.  Many spectators new to the sport became "forever fans" after watching the events this weekend.  Several have posted and emailed their thoughts about what they saw.  What a wonderful tribute to the skills you showed!  The season is winding down quickly, and finals will be here before we know it.  More details will be posted in the next couple of days, so stay tuned for those.  Maggie truck is LOADED and headed to Arizona.  Looking forward to some more great racing out in the west this weekend!!!    woo woo woo

We had a super weekend with everyone!  It was a privilege to be part of the event at Limestone Valley and help to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause.  I know that Alishia (the photographer from Limestone Valley) has posted a BUNCH of pictures over on the ARMA Facebook.  Be sure to check them out!  Thanks to Joey and our hosts over at Lorain County Fair for all of the hard work in making these events happen.  Thanks to everyone for their help in the millions of ways they assisted this weekend!  We couldn't do it without you!!  Wink

See everyone soon!!
