NHIS question

I am sure this question has been asked to death, I have only been a USCRA member two years and am fairly new to this site so I appologize in advance, But what do we pay NHIS for a single day event? What does LRRS pay for a weekend? How about Penquin or Hawk, or even track-day buyers like Max BMW? I guess I have been wondering about this ever since I went to AMP in Shubie, NS last year and was surprised to find that the track is basically club owned.
In light of our percarious position at NHIS and the fact that it seems we get the leftovers (and I realize if it were not for guys like Bob we might not even get that!)and the rumor that we may be cut to only three dates next year. I have also been wondering if a co-op or club owned facility has ever been considered here?
I have wondered this question so much that I have been doing some research on what it would take to build a similar (AMP) facility in say, west central NH somewhere off I89.
I am currently working with a developer/ GC on a fairly large project at our family business and since the CEO is a vintage car guy, he is more than willing to talk to me about it.
I am very familar with what is going on in Tamworth. I have a friend who worked there. I believe most of the problems they are running into are because they chose Tamworth!
There are places in Sullivan and Grafton Counties that still don't have zoning and land prices for large tracts are at or even below $1000 an acre. The developer believes a facility like AMP could possibly be built for around or even under $1m.
So, what do you think? Form a committee from members from all interested parties (USCRA, LRRS, SCCA, the vintage car people, go-carts, etc.), elect a board of directors, create by-laws, sell modestly priced shares, find a willing bank and go for it?
Why not?

the going rate for asphault track is a million a mile.

the club is gonna have to look into other tracks to have events (like: summit, beaver, nelson, pocono, and the new jersey track) and more members are gonna have to travel.

some uscra'ers like to race, and race different places, so they travel. the rest just like to sit and bitch that there is only three races per year at nhis.

and we all ingnore johnny out of jealousy and contempt.

good luck with the dream.

texy "four races this year, none at nhis" mawby

i know pocono bob the track manager from when i used to work at team promotion. you really want to try for the north course. they have three configurations that can run simultaneously (north, east, and south). the f-usa configuration is/was part of two (i can't remember that one specifically). you probably don't want to do the east. it is flat and i think boring.

thunderbolt in millville, nj is supposed to open in march 2007.

let me know if i can help the club.

bob bove also has/had a connection with pocono too i believe.

don't forget to try summit, vir, nelson, and beaverun.

wera turnouts are good at summit and vir.

wera beaverun and nelson are thin grids.
