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?

jb financed nhf with that money right?? id rather drive other places to race then have to be involed with developing something. what can i say, im lazy. we could have all bought intovir backin the day. turns out the original investors are getting thier moneys worth. a real nice track. they just finished the garages there. 2 storys right on start finish straight. i dont know whats on the second floor. i like that miller hass bathrooms in every garage. how effin cool is that??!!

jb, in baltimore, technically, you cant hang kitchen cabinets without pulling a permit. im not saying the middle of ny is baltimore, but im sure, positive, that youd need a permit to pave 20' of 3 miles someplace. anyplace. and at least around here, and boston when i lived there, you cant just magically make something residential, commercial, or whatever it would be. ever sit through zoning variance meetings??? just google the stuff travis pastrana was doing at his house. they got him for all kindsa of stuff, again, private property with a residence. "operaing heavy equipment without a pemit", wetlands destrucion, it went on and on the stupid things they got him for. and he was just bulldozing and sawing down trees. (sound familiar aaron??) anyway....not saying it cant be done, i just think its a much bigger thing than just pave some road, invite over a few friends, then sell it to a non profit. the better way would be to form a non profit, then do it all. and banks wont even talk to you about something thats not a business. and even then its tough if you dont know what youre doing and need 3mill. if you do it privately, its a personal loan and thats unaffordable. you could always try the sbla.

im tired of this topic
