WPTA Slot Car Day

30 Mar

After a one-year absence, this event is back on the calendar. I felt like the event had run its course and some members felt obligated to attend and were in fact not very enthusiastic about racing slot cars. I have been assured that that is not the case, in fact numerous club members enjoy “busting plastic” (racing slot cars) on my slot car track. So in the spirit of, “Give the people what they want”, slot car racing is scheduled for March 30th.

The plan is to meet at Perkins in Cranberry at 9 am on Saturday, March 30th. After breakfast we will depart at 10 am for my house. If you don’t want to eat just show up by 10:00. I will lead the group back to my house. The trip west to the Buckeye state will take about 40 minutes. If you want to come directly to my house, plan on arriving around 10:45.

My address is: 7921 Cliffview Dr. Poland, OH. After a brief tutorial on slot car management, the racing (carnage) will begin. This is not a toy track. It is a hand built 4 lane, 120-foot road course with computer timing and track management. Make sure to bring your favorite beverage, as drinking and driving is encouraged. Also encouraged is questioning the manliness of your competitors, trash talking is expected. We will play until everyone has had their fill. If you have any question you can email me at: mij57@msn.com or call my cell 330 402 0707.

Beer and Bull


On each successive, third Tuesday of the Driving Season we plan to do something to work up a thirst and appetite for Beer & Bull. We’ll meet at Jay’s or Bud’s place (contact Bud for confirmation, on morning of each third Tuesday) at around 3 PM and go for a spirited drive on some of Washington County’s splendid back roads. We may even venture into neighboring Brooke County, WV, as well, but we’ll still arrive by 6 PM at Iron Creek Bar & Grille for Beer & Bull.

This little event will be for classic Brit (and maybe German or Italian) sports cars, ONLY. No daily drivers allowed.

6 pm at Iron Creek Inn, 611 Millers Run Rd, Cuddy PA

This year’s edition of the WPTA Tune Up Clinic will be held on Saturday, April 27 at Jay Galbreath’s garage in Hickory.(40 Caldwell Rd.)

The club will be providing free oil for oil changes performed on location. We will also have cases of oil for sale, price to be determined.
