Title: spring race
Post by: olepaw on January 15, 2018, 06:01:02 PM
Somehow I just don't have a good felling about the change of owners. Middle of January and nothing happening.

Just making sure we have all our paper work in order. I just love Lawyers and Accountants.   Registration will be open soon.

I wrote to them about 2 months ago  and also posted on this forum asking for info on being a volunteer and got no reply back.  Guess they don't need any help so I decided to make plans elsewhere.  :?

I too am not very impressed with the way they are running things.  Sounds like they are so worried in making sure that everything is perfect on the admin side that they are forgetting that they are going to need actual cars and bikes to participate and volunteer for the show to happen.

And I guess we still don't see an active link for 2018 ECTA membership??? :? I'd think they'd like to see some $$ coming in. This is becoming a little bit worry some. :roll: I have rooms at the Holiday Inn and am beginning to feel like that old tome on being all dressed up with no place to go...

I decided not to make any reservations or plans when they would not answer my e-mails.   Not sure why they refuse to communicate with folks but it sure is not a good way to start IMO.

Y'all want to let them get organized a little before you continue the bitch fest...  :x
If you think you can do it better, start an organization and make all the arraignments to make a race go smoothly....
Have at it  :cheers:

,,, I sent it to:  kturk@ecta-lsr.net
The ECTA website page is authored by Brian Lohnes. Anybody acquainted with him? I tried posting a comment there addressed to Brian, suggesting he post more often here (but I don't know if the comment actually "took"... I got no acknowledgement). I didn't see any email address for Brian.

As I understand it the Turk's have sold ECTA to the new operators, so it's not likely you'll get a response from that email.

I have never had to beg this much to volunteer my time to anything before!  I am just saying "F" it at this point if they are this screwed up only a few months before the race is supposed to happen!! :? :?


Title: Re: spring race
Post by: jacksoni on January 27, 2018, 08:36:44 AM
Why don't you call Strupp and ask what's up? As we all know the officials of all of the organizations rarely if ever post here ( DW an exception)

Yep contacting the wrong folks will get you pissed off and no where... as just advised, contact the organizer to see if you can help....
or just keep bitching here  :dhorse:

Via Strupp's website I've gotten no response yet. I posted a comment, asking if Steve would please post more on these forums. I also clicked on the "message" icon (which says "I typically reply within an hour") and sent a message similar to my comment- but no reply yet (2 days so far).

Facebook, email, and forums are not an effective means of communication.  The telephone is.

Telephone  is very effective for two parties. These forums are effective for one party to "broadcast" pertinent info to all forum members here.


Title: Re: spring race
Post by: nrhs sales on January 29, 2018, 11:59:41 AM
Ok I will give it one last try.  What is the phone number since you all say that is the way to contact whoever it is I am supposed to talk to.

Sorry, I have been kindly advised that some folks won't go on Facebook for information. I posted the link as Steve Stupp had posted the announcement about ECTA  there, including his phone number: 812-305-0710
Go for it.

Success.  Steve and I had a great talk and I am looking forward to the spring race.

They finally updated the ECTA website contact info to show Steve and his wife and removed the Turks yesterday.

"Removed"?

That's an awkward term.

Well registration starts Saturday at 5 central. Some what more expensive.

So I just signed up for the spring race at Blytheville, the cost is certainly higher. I hope this translates to good facilities and services at the track. I was always pleased with the treatment we got at Wilmington, enjoyed it a lot. I am hoping there will be overnight parking for cars and trailers on site. Now we hope for great weather.
