So-Cal R/C Track August 1st Price Hike!
This website was notified early last week after the 2012 HRH Shootout that owners of certain R/C tracks in Southern California and Nevada feel the need to raise practice and entry fees by 5 dollars starting August 1st 2012! We were contacted this past Friday again about getting this word out…
Below is a statement sent to us early last week…!
Gentlemen. Please feel free to forward this message to all tracks and R/C media outlets. “It has come to the attention of the industry leaders of radio control tracks to necessitate a five dollar increase in fees to all track related entries. On August 1, 2012 all tracks are to increase fees by five dollars for both practice and racing. Just as the price of milk gasoline and all other items have taken an increase in price we the tracks need to keep up with the times. In order to do this effectively if all tracks band together and increase at the same time attendance will remain the same for all tracks and we will all benefit from the increase (be able to stay in business.) I have taken the initiative to contact all tracks within my local area and join them together so that we can benefit from this fair and necessary increase.
Contact you local tracks and get them on board if we all move forward at the same time we all win. A press release text will be issued to all tracks in accordance for the August 1st announcement.”
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (We are protecting the source of this until the offical release is posted on our website!)
We were told on Friday, only 4 tracks at this time have agreed to the price hike! The following tracks that will be raising their fees with be West Coast, OCRC, Revelation Raceway and Pegasus Hobbies… We spoke with Nick Black last Friday afternoon, he said the fees won’t change until September 1st at OCRC… We spoke with several racers at the JBRL Electric Series race about this subject over the past weekend… We must say alot of people aren’t happy about this… We will keep you informed of any changes or modifications to the pending price hike situation should anything new develop…!
Note: We urge all patrons to contact your local R/C track and tell them how you feel about this! Let them know what will make your R/C experience at their facility better…!
