HORD 2011 change of venue and date

Due to health and finanical hardships the owner of Classic RC Raceays has close shop for good.  This unfortunate news received by ORC just last week.  We wish the Smith family well.

Since this news was received the ORC event committee has work tirelessly to secure a new venue for our September event.  With full endorsement by the event committee and unanimous consent of the registered builders at has been decided to hold the event at The Gate in Brunswick, Ohio on the 24th of September. We were unable to secure this facility on the original date of September 17th due to a previously scheduled RC car event.

We are very thankful to the members of the Northern Ohio Radio Control Auto Racers for opening their excellent facility to us on such short notice.  Please reffer to the HORD 2011 event page for full details.  

At long last we have a date and venue locked in for our 2011 event.  We had been trying to get a commitment from an exciting new venue for the last few months, but that feel through.  Luckly Classic RC Raceways is happy to have us back again this fall.  Check out the event pack for full details HORD 2011 .

Due to low registration (cause by several schedule conflicts), and lack of support from CVCC, HORD Spring 2011 has been postponed.

We are currently  trying to set up something for latter this year.

We are a little late out of the game on this one.  There was some uncertainty whether CVCC was going to be able to host this event.  Please help get the word out.
