Attached is the paper I presented on Mar. 20, 2008, at the National Association of Popular Culture/American Culture Convention in San Francisco, entitled: "Round and Round Again: Slot Car Racers Still at it After 40 Years."

It is largely anecdotal, and includes info I received from answers to my questionnaire, personal interviews, and posts from Slotblog. I'm attaching the accompanying PowerPoint in another post. Much appreciation to all who assisted with information. Enjoy.

My accompanying PowerPoint is 5.1 MB, and the Slotblog limit on files to upload is 1.95 MB. If anyone has a "fix" for me to compress my PowerPoint file, please email me offlist to: ed@shorer.com
Thanks.
I'll get it uploaded as soon as I am able.

Eddie,

A very well researched and written presentation, and of course very interesting. Was there much interest in and/or discussion of the topic at the convention?

Thanks for putting this paper together and for sharing it with us. :)

Can you print your PowerPoint file to a PDF?

 

Cheers

If you send it to me (PM if interested), I can probably compress the file. And if that won't take it under 1.95 Mb, I can split it into smaller segments that will fall under the size limits.
