In general, if a person isn't willing to put their name along with an objective solution to a problem, we ignore it. It's also pretty easy to make a passing slam about the event almost six months after the fact.

If you'd care to provide your name and a reasonable solution or a better explanation of how we could have solved your particular "problem" in a more reasonable way, we'd love to hear it.

If you don't care to man-up in a public forum and be accountable for your comments, then feel free to shoot me a PM and we can discuss it behind closed doors.

Given the of time MPR has existed, both in it's current configuration and in the previous flat-track, I believe the track record speaks for itself. It's the oldest quarter scale track in the country.

Regards,
Joe

Everyone who has raced has been screwed over by a call or a non-call by race control. Some take it better than others.

MPR basically has the same problem that all the other tracks have, not enough eyes on the track to catch everything that is going on. One set of eyes simply can't see everything. When I became co-chair I inherited a set of Motorola Headsets that QSAC owned. I was told that they traveled the NCS series and were required to be worn by the marshalls so they could call a caution or report anything they saw on the track to the race director. I tried to revive the headsets but they were simply too old to be salvaged. Headsets or walkie-talkies are relatively unexpensive today so perhaps it's time that some sort of a marshall communication rule be put back into place.

I agree with this,it would releave some of the responsibility of the anouncer & make for better racing ( 2 heads are better than one)
