This past weekend we held the 4th Annual Medicine Hat Shootout, this is the major fundraiser for the Medicine Hat Radio Controlled Racing Club. People attended from all over western Canada, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. The weather was beautiful Friday for practice and the track was in amazing shape.
Friday evening it started to rain and continued to rain 1 ” off-and-on through the night. We got to the track at 7:30am Saturday morning to find it flooded, since this is nothing new for us we knew that we could pump the water off and have the track ready to run on by noon but we had a short meeting with the drivers to see if they wanted to continue on with the race or just head home, the vote was almost unanimous to run the race so our track crew got to work. We pumped off most of the water, let the track dry a little bit and then spread peat moss and wood shavings on the worst parts and by noon we were running our first qualifier to the amazement of most of the racers.
