Worldwide slot car chat on Zoom!

Worldwide Slot Car Chat Meeting on Zoom!
Today at 12 noon, Pacific time. That's 3pm Eastern or 7pm GMT.

Share your love of slot cars, whatever the scale, type, or facet of the hobby! All are welcome! Don't be shy!

When the time comes, click the following link, and use your web browser or the Zoom app to join and chat.

As I'm hosting with a free account, this will be limited to 40 minutes, so if you're interested in participating, or even just watching, don't be late! I'll try to record it and if there's anything interesting or entertaining, I'll post it to YouTube or something. Due to this time limitation, I will not join as host, and therefore start the meeting, until the precise time of the meeting. Set an alarm if you need to, and join right at the correct time. If yo're not sure what time that is for your location, look up a local time zone conversion on google. It will be approximately 3 hours from when this message is posted.

Got it? OK, here's the link. See you then!

Interesting idea.

For any Brits, don't forget that we're currently 1 hour ahead of GMT, so it will be at 8pm.

So 21:00 here on the continent...

How'd it go, many takers?  anyone's screen crack ?

Only just saw this thread.

This went really well. I think we'll do it again. :)

Dang, I missed this. I had today registered with Zoom to try it but no-one to connect with.  OK, next time.

Let's do this again..

In this get-together,  from memory, we covered quite a lot.

- Analog  v  Digital. 
- the benefits of different digital systems,
- DiSCA racing : clubs and experiences 
- why some cars just don't work (and what to do about it) 
- Lap counters. Windows, IOS, heritage (DOS) 
- "home" vs "club" culture.
- magnetic down force 
- getting (and keeping) youngsters involved. 
- public / junior events. How to encourage good driving? 

Zoom behaved well. No technical problems. 
The timeslot worked well for me (7pm GMT /UST) 

It'd be a good idea to have some subjects to discuss, prepared ahead of time .

Your favourite slot car and why it's your favourite.

Have just been watching about 25mins of the recording, but will have to catch the rest later. Seems to have gone very well, good easy conversation going on with enough casual banter to keep the mood mellow.

Definitely will watch/listen this afternoon.
