    I've seen a few of these go down in California and such but been wanting to set one up here. I was thinking about where we could meet/what we could do and then it hit me! Why not meet one weekend out at the Motorsports park where I work? We could hit the kart track and then go chow down at Stanley's upstairs. (p.s. the karts are Sodi racing karts with full shrouds and top out at 55mph)

    lol, well like i said, we're not "officially" opened yet. We're running a soft opening up to the June grand opening date. But our karting facilities are fully-operational (as are the North track and Autocross pad). We have Sodi GT5 karts for arrive-and-drive rental. These are fully-adjustable (seats and pedals) and can accommodate people up to almost 7 feet in height. They're equipped with four-stroke honda GX270 engines pushing 9hp and reach a top speed of 55mph.

    well come on down! though, as you can imagine, we have a strict no-alcohol policy at the track facilities.

    I tried to put together a little meet up for dream cruise. One would figure that with 1.5 million or so there for that event that there would 5 or 6 homos, but no, not a peep.

    well we're about halfway through June and the end of the month is closer than the beginning now so I thought I'd bring this up again. Our first two KDV events were spectacular successes so I can only assume that the third time's going to be even more of a charm. icon_biggrin.gif
