Well if this many people are going to show is it worth laying the longer track ? this will make the straights longer
by 8 foot .but this will only work if there are enough people to Marshall the extra length ..
The track would be end to end and not T shaped to achieve this..
lets here from some others if this is OK..

Extra length does not have to mean more marshals. You could have a 500' long oval that would only need 2 marshals, same as a 10' one.

Of the two layouts I have seen it is the T shaped one that needs more marshals.

Is this not one of those two layouts? If it is a new one do you have a sketch?

Bear in mind four of the names are only maybes. Lets not get carried away. I will of course do what I can away from SF to get them de-italicised.

its the same layout, the two main straight are longer thats all.
But if there are not enough people, you end up with a body running up and down to help marshall
8 people and its a breese,... you are listing peolpe as defanitly not maybe,s so I dont know
it could be a 1000 foot long but what you need is two marshall at either end two make this work.
You need to have been at the last two meetings to understand how things have have worked out..
We have been close to laying a longer track but have been 1 person short of just moving things
forward that fraction, by having the fastest cars show what they have in top end and corner speed
which could be done with that 1 extra person
so show who are the maybes and who are the defos
..if you get my driff.
its makes set up easy if you no in advance..

Of course, but you can't force people to decide. I'm working on it.

This again highlights why we need to do the corporate night, send the press releases, do some more flyers, talk to the scouts etc.

Once the membership is up we can build whatever track we want and people can just turn up, a la WHO.
