I know I am new and have never participated in a meet or anything of the sort. I will start attending them now that I feel I have become a part of this community. I wanted to throw out a possible idea for an Ohio meet. (If you Mods decide this is not the section of the forum it belongs then feel free to move it) There is a local 2 mile road course in North East Ohio near where I live called Nelson Ledges. They offer "Fun Days" for amateurs or anyone else who wants some track time. It is extremely cheap at $120 for the entire day and the only thing you need is a DOT approved helmet. Spectators can park right with the cars that will be on track so we can all be together, and it states that spectators are $5 but the one time I went they just let me and my friend in for free. I believe this would be a great opportunity for a meet and I hope everyone else likes the idea. I know I will probably go to every "Fun Day" this summer that I can afford. In the area is also a park called Nelson Ledges quarry where we could have a non-race segment of the meet. Thank you for the consideration and tell me your thoughts.

as cool as it sounds, most of us are cheap bastards. 120$ for track time + a helmet (100$?), most peopel will not go

im sure there will be good old poor person meets this summer, at a park, with some bbq and a big parking lot

I might be down depending on when/if the MD meet is. Cuz this would definitely be an easier trip even though it's longer.

Even if not everyone is down for the track time, the quarry has everything. Main thing being a huge quarry lake for swimming, cheap camping, and picnic areas.
