If you are willing to learn our hobby, we are willing to teach you, and you do not have to own your own equipment, to be part of our organization. We will teach you how to do track work, from building it, to laying it down on the ground, and maintaining it, to running all the different engines the members have, as long as you are willing too learn, we are willing too teach you.

We hope too see you and your family out at our track soon!
