Guests who read but do not join, read this.
« on: June 08, 2011, 12:12:59 AM »
I was talking with another Moderator, Rooster, and he had told me of talking to several
folks over the phone and whatnot and about how they found out about him. They said
from Heymow. He then asked for their handle on the site. "Well" they say..... "I just read
and have not joined up". Rooster asks them, "how do you keep up with the new stuff?"
They asked, "how do you mean." "There is a link you click on the site and it will list all of
the items that are new since your last visit", says Rooster. "Really!!" the guest says. "Yes",
says Rooster.

Posting is not a requirement.
It is a good idea to put your location, atleast the state you live in. Someone may live in
you area and contact you for a meet and greet at a local track, you can never tell.

From a relative newbie. PLEASE JOIN!!!  That's how I met a member (Flipper) that lived close to me and he has been VERY helpful on my first build with tips on what NOT to do. He already did them and didn't want me to make the same mistakes.  I HIGHLY suggest joining!!  Heck, if there was a fee I would STILL be a member. Where else are you gonna find out about some of this stuff??  Thanks, Tom

What...you didn't get the invoice?
I can remedy that for you, send me a check and I'll get the accounting done.
And everyone of those guys end up PM'ing me to the tune of ;"Wow, you saved me a ton of time!"

  This site is full of incredible information for the new and old in this sport. I think everyone should be a member.  Gives me something to do when works slow, I read every new post and am trying to read the older stuff as time permits. But its gonna take a while there so much GREAT information for everyone involved in this FUN sport

   Thanks for having this AWESOME site for all to use

I enjoy "reading the evolution" of the sport.
I printed out the flathead section in chronological order once. You'd be surprised at how things have changed in the few short years Heymow has been up!

Yep Rooster, but while change is inevitable it isn't always for the better...   :eyebrow:

I feel exactly the same way.  I have been doing a lot of listening to Tank, he's been very helpful to me.  You cannot, I can certainly say, start any valuable connections on this site without joining up.  Tank and I started chatting it up over a piece of pipe!  Seriously, where else are you gonna do that?

Join up.  It's like broccoli...May look intimidating, but its the best thing for you.

LOL
Some "newbies" are intimidated, and they shouldn't be! That is one of the things that truly makes Mower Racing the best. Even the most seasoned pro's make time to help out the new racers. Almost all the people in this sport are great guys, well natured easy going and fun to be around!

Nobody should be intimidated to join up! It's easy! Join the party and be heard! You don't have to have a mowracer right now but you will before long. Keep it clean, fair, lite hearted, and honest! Check out the post from the beginning, It's great reading. If you don't know, just ask!

Or on the roof of a moving vehicle with a red cape. Someone has to have a picture of this. I didn't get it in time before he got dumped.
