WALK TO HISTORY

Postby bertvorgon » 11 Nov 2011 15:35

Hey Gang,

I was thinking of an impromptu walk to the old LANGLEY SPEEDWAY, entering from the 8th Avenue parking lot, of the CAMPBELL VALLEY REGIONAL PARK, maybe mid morning on Sunday, say 11:00 AM?

Whom would be interested? Weather could be a factor, I'm game as long is it is not torrential rain..or hail like it was half an hour ago.

Bring kids, wives, it is an easy walk, maybe 15 minutes over to the track.

Hey, no worries, judging from the lack of response, I think we can plan this for another day.

Just reading this tonight here Keith, I'd love to catch up at the oval but the weekend has already booked past reasonable capacity. :(

hey, no problem, thanks for letting me know. Matt was busy for most of today anyhow. I think I'm going to size up the rear shocks on the Infinity today, plus a couple of other projects.

Hit the bike tomorrow.

As we are in a great weather window at the moment, albeit cold, I'm throwing out a walk to the old speedway at 12:00 noon on Sunday, any and all welcome.

Again, we would meet at the 8th avenue parking lot, for Campbell Valley Park.
