Last Friday, February 15th was the Open House in the 4-story building where I have the Mini Speedway track. The building is filled with artists, musicians and crafts people as well as my RC plane manufacturing biz, plus the Mini Speedway!
The official hours were 6PM to 9PM but we had people until at least 11PM.
In addition to a slightly larger than Wide-L layout for people to try running 2-minute races. We had Groovesquad Live, a local improvisational electronica band, Lena, a local artist who painted live and John Shlick, my partner in Schlick Cycles showing our excellent Performance Cruiser bicycle.
In addition I had my Pole Camera setup at a 12 foot height, just a few inches short of the ceiling to take remote photos from on high.
Over all we had a couple of hundred peole come through. It was an interesting crowd as many of the people were in the building to see specific artists but I think a lot of them came away with a better understanding of Mini Speedway and RC car racing. Hope we get a few of them to become regulars. I gave out first race free cards so I hope to see some of those come back!

The building our Mini Speedway shop is in, known locally as The Nut Factory owing to one of its previous incarnations, is having an open house on Friday, February 15th, 2008 from 6PM to 9PM.
Mini Speedway will be participating with Open Track Time racing our 1/28th scale rc race cars, entertainment from Groovesquad Live, a local improvisational electronica musician, specials and giveaways and, if all goes well, a fantastic local artist.
In addition to the Mini Speedway shop being open several other artist tenants of the building will also be participating.

Well, winter has set in here in Milwaukee and it is time for some indoor RC activity so I got a bunch of RCP Track, a Core Systems timer and cleared out some space at the slopeflyer.com shop and will be hosting 1/28th scale rc car racing right here in Milwaukee.
I set up a site for Mini Speedway RC at www.minispeedway.com that will provide information for our local racers, info for the Mini RC community in general and an online store.
We have a dedicated space for the track in a 1200 sq/ft facility. The track and associated useable space is about 800 sq/ft and the track occupies an area of about 18 x 30 feet. The remainder of the facility is dedicated to an RC airplane manufacturing business.
So, if you are an RC Car racing enthusiast in Milwaukee or Southeastern Wisconsin interested in Mini and Micro RC cars like Mini-Zs, xMods, iWavers, Firelap Nanoracers, come join us for fun and competition on a professional rc race track on the East Side of Milwaukee.
