That sounds like it's worth a look. I remember the part we would paddock on was decent. Never looked on the other side.

Anybody knowledgeable with lot selection ever take a look? I've been back there a few times and it looks like plenty of space between the movie theater and the opposite side for a decent course.

Thats where we used to run up until a few years ago.

I don't think its popular due to the 'crowd' it attracts, but pavement is pavement and they have got to be hurting for money.

We had a purse snatcher there one event. ORM does attract a bad crowd. Heck Tony shows up for some of those events.

^ That's cold! :lol:

Basically, we'd need to hire Ryan's crack, ex-military ETR security staff for these events like we intended for East Town...? :twisted:

Being from OR....My whole family and most of OR was wondering what they were thinking when they put in that mall. We already drove to West Town and kept going there after the mall was in place. Also, the strip mall that was there forever did much better than the mall ever wished they would do. Plus, this is OR we are talking about. They probably got rid of more inventory from theives than they did from actual sales.

I remember the strip mall when I moved here in 1974. There was a Woolworth's 5 & 10, a wonderful bakery and other great stores. I thought the mall would do great when it became enclosed, but I guess there is something to be said~~~~~If it aint broke, dont fix it~~~~~

Ok, so this was the mall yesterday - I would assume Sundays would be even more sparse. We HAVE to figure out how to get back there. There is lot we could do with it now.

Who do we need to beg to get back on this lot?

In this one, you can see the WRX parked WAY down there.

In this one, you can see that there is an area we could easily get through to link the lots together.
