The Skycraft Hobbies Invitational 1/8 Scale eBuggy Race inside the Thunderdome at RC Acres in Hamilton, Ontario was a day filled of intense racing once again. 19 Racers converged into the newly heated pits and began laying laps down in hopes of being the event's first champion.
Prior to the day, the prevalent racers to watch were: - Justin Silva (Mississauga, ON) - the inaugural eBuggy Winner inside the Thunderdome 2 weeks prior, vying for back-to-back titles - Derek Sousa (Everett, ON) - the Racer that led 24 of 27 laps in that inaugural race and ended with a DNF, racing to reclaim what was almost his - Mark Sousa (Toronto, ON) - the Racer that posted the fastest lap two weeks prior, and was the eBuggy Main Champion at the RC Pro Series Race at RC Acres in August, racing to win his 2nd title at RC Acres in 3 events
… and a field of 16 more, most with some laps previous to the day inside the Thunderdome.

The Inaugural Invitational 1/8 Scale eBuggy Race was held inside the Thunderdome at RC Acres in Hamilton, Ontario, on November 23rd, 2013.
25 Drivers from as far as Peterborough, Kingston and Ottawa in addition to surrounding Hamilton and Burford (and all points in between) battled it out over the 650 meter dirt track, through an hour of open practice, 2 rounds of heated practice, 3 qualifiers and the mains. Some veteran racers were in attendance to lay some fast laps down while some rookies were there to break in their rides on the newly created technical track.
The original post dated December 13th, 2009 was a short opinion piece on a $200,000 donation by Carrie Underwood to the Humane Society of the United States. My thoughts on it at the time were: "Miss Underwood just handed over a ton of coin to help the largest Animal Rights Activist organization on Earth fight Farmers and Ranchers and anyone else that has an interest in animals."
September 6th through 8th Rawhide Rodeo presented Ontario High School Rodeo and International Professional Rodeo sponsored by Med-On-Site inside the Case IH Agriplex at the 138th Western Fair inside the Western Fair District in London, Ontario, Canada.
It was a weekend of celebrations... Case IH celebrating their 25th Anniversary of the Magnum Tractor, Barney the Purple Dinosaur celebrating his 25th Year, and my birthday as well.
