I think I have all the stuff to repair that in my garage, dry wall, tape and float stuff, and a nice tile saw. I don't have the time to do it myself, but if someone wants to come grab what I got I doubt they would spend more than $20.00 on anythng extra.

I am pretty sure I have some grout too. Anyway, if someone is interested in doing the labor I'll provide the materials and the tile saw. Let me know, been looking to get that out of my garage for a while. LOL!

Can anybody provide better pics. Or if anyone can get me access to look at it, I may be able to take care of it. I could do the repair sometime next week.

That's how you get your phone, wallet, and other stuff jacked while you ride. I used to just let it all hang out...I treated the track like, uh, Colorado, with no one underprivileged enough to bother stealing. I have a super strong hunch as to who it is, so when I see that person, I lock my up. It sux, but it only takes one bad apple to ruin everyone else's fun.

I am so glad to hear people offering their services! Someone sponsor it yet? (I hope I didn't miss some sarcasm somewhere!)

Told my buddy about it tonight. He does this stuff for a living, Bathroom remodel etc. He has only ridden a couple of track days this year and was not out there this weekend. He is game for doing the fix. Is this the way Dave wants to handle it? Just let me know.

Did you have something stolen at the track before?
Or are you referring to the wall incident?

It kinda sounds to me like he's referring to when something of his got stolen.

After further inspection we realized that there was not greenback only regular Sheetrock and it did not have the hard backing over the Sheetrock either. It may have been a vandal or it may have been an accident while moving around and a heel hitting the wall. Either way the org that rents the track is responsible par the contract signed by both parties when the track is rented. I DID see one person throw a paper towel on the floor Saturday and I asked him to ease pick it up. He looked at me like I was crazy and said he didn't know which paper towel on the floor was his, so I asked him to picke them all up. He did and I told him thanks because if the place is trashed then Ride Smart would be in trouble and I did not want that. If you guys really want to help Dave out I don't think him having to pay for the damage
will kill him but people disrespecting the tracks and rules can kill Ride Smart quick. So, if it was an accident then there is no reason why you should not speak up
now. This is your open opportunity make things right. Do the right thing and atleast speak up if you see this. Being a member at MSRH is very expensive and it does cost a lot of money to keep it going so the bathrooms are not a way for them to make money. Thanks Floyd and all the other Ride Smart peeps doing a great job!
Was there today getting the other trailer. All 3 showers need to be redone. Nobody kicked the wall. The entire wall moves with just a touch of your pinky. The sheet rock behind the tile is as strong as wet tissue paper. None of the tiles are damaged. Just peeled off. All 3 showers are very weak and have damage from improper use of build materials.

Sounds like good news for Ridesmart. Thank for the grub Billy. My wife and I had a great time on Saturday.. The sirloin and pulled pork was fantastic!

Buuut, everybody already has their torches lit and pitchforks sharpened! What are we supposed to do for entertainment now?

We aren't going to waste this perfectly good pot of boiling tar and we certainly aren't going to waste this bag full of feathers. Do you have any idea how time consuming it is to get all this ready on such short notice?
