REMINDER - Registration starts Friday July 1, 2016. ONLY the first eight FULLY PAID teams are accepted.

 

Entry fees can be paid via PayPal at sales@tomthumbhobbies.com. Please notify me with the team members and team name as soon as possible. Interest has been VERY high this year so don't wait to register. It's looking like we may have a few big names in slot racing with us this year. Ask anyone who has raced it before - it's ALWAYS a GREAT time.

Anybody interested in a spot on a team let me know, my usual partners won't be able to make it this year.

 

Thanks,

Glad to see Paul Pfeiffer and the two Alpha/Wisc. teams got in.

I was talking to Paul on Thursday and he was concerned if their registration would get there on time.

Maybe they will get bit by the Retro bug, and it will trickle down to Illinois.

NOTICE...

I was just informed that the US Senior Open golf tournament will be the same weekend as the enduro... and... only about 1.5 miles away.

So it would be a great idea to get your room booked now if you're racing in the enduro.
