    Here was my post:
    Greets from =>DvS<= Clan.
    We have thought up a course to race helicopters on Isla Innocentes.
    It's wicked fun, although serves absolutely no purpose. We were wondering
    if three of your pilots would like to race three of ours around the course, I have
    a link to the thread on our forum where we thought of the idea, it never really took
    off, but we still do it for fun.

    Bad company 2 racers, sign up!

    I would password and unrank the server of coarse or we could use one of yours
    if you would be willing to do the same. Jet ski races could be held at the same time.
    All races would need to be on the attackers side, all spectators would be on defence.

    Anyway, get back to me if you would be keen, spectators in the server would be welcome,
    as long as they didn't start shooting.

    I'll ask if anyone is keen - they'll respond here if they are.

    Wednesday the 4th of August is good for us if it's good for you. Only need 3 of your pilots
    for the main event, perhaps start at around 7.00 as it will likely take some time to get everyone
    prepared and up on the rules. It's pretty easy to stuff up the race, being a relay type
    race, changing pilots in a rush is difficult, especially with the black hawks.

    We will have to make it no deliberate crashing one another, otherwise the helis always
    blow up lol.

    Good to see some interest in this different event.

    We have had a few test runs at this, it takes some practice, two of the hurdles
    are changing pilots, as only one person is allowed in the heli at a time
    (To make sure the correct person is flying and there are no mid flight changes)
    changing pilots is hard, especially without wasting time in landing, the other difficulty
    is not crashing, especially at the choke point between the power poles and the
    island with the M-COM Stations.

    We may need a few restarts. The other problem is making sure all members in
    the server hold there fire. No interference of any kind, including lighting the heli
    flyers faces up with the tracer darts or shooting windows to make it hard to see.
    I think it should be ok though.

    Hi Tog
    Its Veserius from DvS
    Tonight has turned into a giant shitfest, we have had a lot problems tonight, Metal Eyes could not attend nor be here tonight due to unfortunate circumstances and we were left with me, infamous, and another who cant fly very well at all. Also we had some problems with guardian where some times it came up an error Connection to the server was lost, and no-one on your side showed up (at this point it time, also could be a timezone difference i dunno, not to bad though as we had lots of issues), and with Metal Eyes gone we lost our contact between the two clans.

    So sorry for the inconvenience, i'm sure if we happen to work things out on our side we would love to have another heli race

    Yeah No dramers. Let us know when you want to set this up again and we will see what we can do. Maybe use one of our servers if your having problems.

    I'm really sorry guys, I had no internet last night, I got kicked out again after
    the boss walked in on Friday morning and said the company was going into
    liquidation, so I didn't even get my weeks wage, let alone redundancy or my
    annual leave that I'm owed.

    Once I can figure out where to stay and shit I will try and get things working again,
    we use MoHawk voice, It's a lot like Vent. I'll send you guys the details for it
    before the next event so we can do things a little easier.
