      Several SAMOAns gathered this afternoon at Alan Smith's Scale Racing Center. The building is in Tacoma, across the street behind Griot's Garage. We were there to familiarize ourselves with the facility and scope out its suitability as the site for the upcoming White Elephant Auction.



      It's certainly shiny and bright. Onsite parking is somewhat limited, but there's an empty parking lot next door and SRC faces Griot's back lot.



      There's still finishing work to do on the interior, but the slot car part is very well done.





      And even though the tracks seem huge, there's space available for auction activity and food service.

      More photos will follow.

        SRC's "Event Room" has kitchen stuff, and Alan says we can set up a BBQ grill right outside.



        The rest of the Event Room.





        Oh, yeah. And did I mention there's slot car racing?

                  Did I miss the start time of the event?
                  It's all part of life's rich tapestry.

                    Carl, I believe the WE starts at 11AM and the Griot's tech session at 8AM? Not sure what those equate to in Belfair time though, 1300 Zulu?

                    Anyone, please correct those times if I am off.

                      Andrew basically has it correct.
                      But guys, take a look at the SAMOA website front page. The schedule of the activities for the day is shown there, including the event at Griots as well as the White Elephant.

                        Hey Folks!
                        Please help with two items:
                        Let us know of any specialty items you might be able to donate to the dialect auction
                        R.S.V.P. to the White method that Noreen was good enough to send to you all.

                        Looking forward to a great day, and hoping for weather like yesterday/today!
                        Best,

                            I'll second that. Major congratulations to the White Elephant co-conspirators.

                            I have one suggestion, however. Next year, get your order for sunny weather in a little earlier.

                            Nice work.

                              I'll third it! Great day only now I want to start slot-car racing again, shot reflexes and all.
