Halifax RC Park Cleared for Take Off

DSCF2231

Thank you to all those that came out yesterday and helped with the installation of the jumps. Due to the good turnout, we were able to get some holes filled in and the grass cut. Work also got started on a Crawler area, if you would like to add your input into the development of the Crawler area, then now is the time to contact us. I wasn’t able to stay until the end, but I was able to get up there this morning and the changes that were made after I left, make it a very enjoyable trip around the track.

This Saturday August 8 at 10am, we will be at the Halifax RC Park, building a jump or two and doing a little track maintenance. We hope to be done within a couple of hours. We are looking for volunteers from the RC community to help us out. If you have a few hours free, then please come on out with your rakes, shovels and wheel barrows.

Introducing the New Halifax RC Park Layout

Here it is the very first run put down on the new layout. It was done tonight by one of the volunteers. By the time we left, John was putting down some pretty good sections with his Traxxas Slash 4×4, but to be fair he really didn’t have enough time to put it all together before it got dark.

Thank you to Macmanhfx for the great pictures

Halifax RC Park Back on Track

The track drainage is much improved over last year. Even after the additional rain we got last night the Halifax RC Park Committee and some volunteers were able to go up to Beaver Bank tonight and put down the track. The center line around the new track layout measures a staggering 555ft. The technical section will provide plenty of passing opportunities and the long straight with a slight dog leg will be loved by the speed demons.

However, there is still work to do. On Saturday June 27 at noon we want to work for a couple of hours and install the pit lane and access ramps which make it easier for the RC’s to get on and off the track. We are looking for any volunteers that may have a shovel, rake, wheel barrow or a lawn mower to come on up and…

The Hard Work Pays Off

Sackville RC

Halifax RC Park. June 2015 Taken at 4pm June 23, 2015 during a break in the weather after 3 days of rain.

I got a chance to head up to the RC Park today. I wanted to see how the new surface held up with all the rain we have had over the last three days. I was very pleased to see only a few small spots still holding water, the overall surface is still a little soft, which is to be expected. Temperatures are unseasonably cold and we have yet to see the sun, but at this point, it appears the resurfacing done on the weekend is a success. The lake is gone.

The Halifax RC Park Committee want to thank the RC Community for respecting the work done on Saturday and not running on the track surface, until the work is completed. We plan to put down the lane dividers as soon as the weather permits and the track…
