As far as making it official with points rather then an exhibition event, it all depends on if we can have a boat count the entire year....not just every other race. this includes the race in march which will be back to back weekends with the SCSC.

From what I have been told, we (as circle jet guys) are welcome back anytime as long as we bring enough boats....along with the flags as well.

Of course, I am torn about the whole NJBA circle jet deal....

I love the idea of more races throughout the year across different associations, but as of right now, in the southern california area, we have a total of 11-12 circle jet race boats that are active. I really don't want to spread it too thin.....if we do, people will skip out on SCSC races because an NJBA race is more convenient to their location or schedule..or vise versa (not to mention break downs or broken budgets keeping people from making it to a race).......and that could mean we make or break an event...or even a class.....including the compjet class we all have been working so hard on building and bringing back. I say we give it another year with the SCSC to let the class grow some more (look how much it grew last year  :o) then next year we 'make it count' with the NJBA. This year we should do a couple of exhibition events like we did in october. This will give us some seat time without having to commit to an entire year.

....I dont know....what is every elses take?

Maybe we should concentrate on converting a crowd of people that came to see dag boats and not where we could scrounge up more points.

That sounds fine with me, I will run on jet at the SCSC events and the other at the NJBA exhibition events.

 Is Burley going to count with the SCSC season ? It is the longest standing Comp Jet race in the US !

I was really shooting to do a Exhibition event for this race with the circle boats, but it looks like we wont have a boat count....222, 410, 53, 288 have all confirmed they wont be able to make it. No response from all other boats to date.

This bums me out because this was the only NJBA event all year that didn't conflict with other circle boat events. It just doesn't look like it will happen this year.

I am trying to get this pile together. Of coarse I was trying to get it together for the last race at Parker that we didnt make. If the Ming thing doesnt happen we still have burley but I'm looking for seat time to hit it hard next season and give everybody a run for there money.
