We have a great deal going on getting ready for the HOPRA Nats at Lenjet so I thought I would like to start posting as we start to finalize things. Hotel deals should be ready to post by the weekend.

Dan Cronin and I (mostly Dan)have come up with a unique design for the CMPM track. It will be incredibly fast and again unlike anything ever attempted. It joins the rest of the unique tracks that
I have assembled.

See the first picture of the Viper-Boomerang. It is big....13 x 16

It's been many years since I last raced HO and in some people's opinion that disqualifies me from commenting on your design.

 

However I don't particularly care about the opinion of "those people" so I will comment anyway.

 

I am wondering if the marshals stationed at the "bottom" of the "finger" will block the line of sight to the "top" of the finger?

 

Even if the top turn on the finger is full punch- I would be concerned that the lack of line of sight might be distracting to the racers.

 

Best wishes to the officials and participants in the 2016 HOPRA nationals.
