    I know it's a long thread... but sometimes it's good to scroll up or read previous pages before posting questions!

    There is NO live feed, since there is NO internet access at the raceway. A few people have graciously offered to take pictures and share them online. I have set up an OWH Nats Photo Gallery, and I will be posting links to photo galleries hosted elsewhere.

    Some with their own wireless internet services might be able to post when not too busy, and some will hopefully be posting from their smart phones.

    Slotcargeorge has set up a Twitter account, and I have a live Twitter feed posted on the main forum front page on the side bar.

    I will do what I can to repost pics and race results as the become available, from the OWH Home Office in the Philippines.

    We will do what we can to make this Nats as close to "Almost Live" coverage as possible - so that those (like me) who are unable to attend can still follow along.

    Hey Alan!

    What happened??? I thought you were all set and planned on going!

    Major bummer that you're going to miss it - and at your former stomping grounds and old "home" raceway as well!

    Craig told me you were back in Seattle the other day. I hope all is well, and that it is just a priorities thing.

    We've even got the original OWH "Almost Live" Nats reporter on site!

    Owl - I'm hoping you have some sort of wireless connection by laptop or phone, and can post while breaking in motors when possible!

    I set up the OWH Nats Photo Gallery... but I don't have your login info. I might have to reset it for you to upload pics. If you have another online web album I can copy pics from there until fixed on OWH.

    We'll manage to get the word out somehow! Hey - remember when you used to have to wait for the magazines to come out to read the race results??? We've sure gotten spoiled as the times have changed!

    Nats Race Results will be posted in this sub-forum:

    Yeah! I'm doing double duty working on motors and slaving away like the RGEO Nat's as your roving reporter at the 2012 Scale Nat's! I may have to buy a lot coffee from Mocha Madness as I have tapped into their WiFi!

    Give me something and I will try to post on the gallery later!

    IMHO, I think any furure Nats bids should require internet coverage. It's not that difficult this day and age.
