Hi there,

Thanks alot. I have been asking around too.

I am not sure how to make this forum more public tho? Can you please elaborate?

But I do know other kart forums I might be able to get a few guys from there.

It will be really cool to make it happen :D

I think you are treading on thin ice. As it is, it would appear that Buckethead(2) is almost an organizer and has already caught the eye of at least one moderator. As you know, advertising on this forum is forbidden. Gatherings of forum regulars is not a problem as long as it's not a event being organized by a business and is profit oriented (e.g., selling a venue like a go-cart business by organizing a so-called gathering.) Wondering how to make this thread public is really no longer for the members of this forum so it would almost appear as a commercial event where numbers are required to turn a profit than a leisure event..........

I hope I'm wrong.

Woops.. I think i input wrong words in there.
My apologies.
That is not what i meant.
Anyway, this is more a social gathering or recreational activities. Not for profit gathering right?
What i meant is to gather more people to join our activites together..
Nobody is making money here. WE just want to have fun. =D

Opps I can see where you are coming from but no I don't work for GoKart company for the record. You are welcome to come along so that you can have my namecard if you want.

I just thought that going there as a group is more fun with a bit of competation instead of driving alone and its cheaper.

Its the same as FNDC or anything like that really. Just because one person organizes FNDC doesn't mean he/she work for a pub right?

Again, I would like to make it clear that the only party making money here is KartWorld. That is the only karting place in Singapore so obviously they are there to make money.

The cost of the corperate package is stated on their website and we will divide it by the number of participants and pay for it.

As simple as that and hopefully we will get there soon. :)

Buckethead2,

Not a problem. Sometimes we have to be over zealous in order to keep others from saying "well so-and-so did it!" Appreciate your clearing the air. Thanks for seeing what I am talking about. Enjoy the karting (It's been over 40 years since I've done that!)

Hi Tommie,

No we haven't got round to that yet and I will be away this weekend. Hopefully we can do it next week.

Do you want to join? Please let me know. Once we get the rythm started, we might be able to do it regularly.
