DatsunsNW future plans and events

Recommended Posts

What a great weekend, great to see some new faces at our meet and cruise, thx to Rueul for heading up the run after the meeting, there was some spirited driving for sure, even found myself pointing the wrong direction once on a tight switchback ooops, nicklepistol as my only witness. Two 410's showed up and had the wheels driven off them, one owned by 13 year old Carson Lum (driven by dad Dave) That does'nt happen every weekend! Good to meet Wayno and his diesel truck. I think we have the best venue in the Datsun community for our meeting and hope to keep building momentum in out local Datsun community. I'm thinking we should have a BBQ soon at one of our meetings??

Phone has been acting up and I lost most of the pics. This is the only one I had and is from when we ate lunch and is missing many of the other vehicles.

Datsuns NW is going drag racing this Sat. May 7th, tracks open and the weather looks like its going to be great! Bring out those Datsuns and enjoy a night at the drags, if your not going to run there is beer and food and plenty to see, I'm going to see if the wife wlil bring out her Audi and see what it turns.

 

Our monthly meeting will be on the 21st this month 10-1 at the Portland location.

 

Loren from datsloco is having a cruise on May 15th to silver falls, for details check out his post here on ratsun. We will be heading out with a couple guys to this, everyone is welcome.

I would have enjoyed going to the Drag races Sat, and RDM last night but I've been super busy. Still planning to see you guys at Sykart Tuesday night for some go-karting, I should be able to make it but just barely. Will I be shamed for driving the Z? I know it's 5/10 day but the wagon is parked in the shop and I can't get out there before Tues.

You got that Z running and driving already? Sure bring that thing out, any Datsun's a good Datsun, we can flog those new tires and clutch after karting.

Yeah the Z is running, I even got a trip permit so I can run a few tanks of gas through it before trying to pass DEQ.

Do you wanna plan a once a month (or more) Sykart night arizonajones? There are a few core Datsun guys that I think would come out for this on a regular basis and maybe it would pull in more? I'm in just let me know what days work best for you.

 

Alex won the Datsun truck model last night for fast lap, it was awesome.

All right I'll get better with the pic's and video's, I've always been a "had to be there" guy and don't generally take pic's. But I will start using my Go-Pro and post some stuff :thumbup:

A once a month Sykart night would be awesome! Do you think people would come out on a weeknight - like Monday? I suppose we could set up a vote-thread.

Monday nights are enduro nights at Sykart, they have half hour races instead of the 10 minute heats, this makes Monday a tuff night to go cause of limited track access. I would suggest a Tuesday or Thursday as these are their slower nights and easier to get on the track together.

 

I'm pretty sure 3-4 guys would show up regularly at first, its so much fun i think more will join in! I can start a separate thread on this and see where it goes, if we get enough guys we could start our own race series there.

Just finished up our meeting, we had a great turn out again with a lot of new faces and a lot familiar ones as well, I contacted Anthony (green supra turbo wagon) a couple months back about coming to the meetings with one of my favorite wagons, after getting a pretty big project done it's back on the road and menacing as ever, good to see Anthony and his car back on the road and he say's he will be at Canby this year. I really appreciate all the help and support guys, so many new members and people volunteering to help with the Canby show, thanks  to everyone!

 

Next meeting will be after Canby and we will be doing a cruise after the meeting.
