Click show in the next blue box to see more EVent Descriptions for this years Current Events Calendar.
You can also choose another year to see past events:
|Want to Add a New EVent! It is easy to do! Click the [show] link to the right >>
Want to create a new EVent! First click "Current Events" at the top of any events page. Once there, just click on any of the dates in the "wiki calendar" below to begin creating a new page! Start the page with (Just copy it now and paste it when you create your page):|
== Short Name for EVent ==
Your event details and description text goes here.
Next simply add whatever details and links you like to the page. Use the Show preview to see what you have created and finally click Save page and you are done. You and anyone else can edit the page later to add more details. The new EVent page you help create can grow more detailed, after the event photos can be added or accounts of how the event went. All of this will be archived for future generations to see what kind of amazing fun we have had, heck go check out some past EVent pages now (Tip: Click on any pages edit link to see how easy they are to create).
|Need more advanced editing tips? Click the [show] link to the right >>
If there are more than one event on a given day, then make the == Header == at the top of the page include a short description of both events so that they will both appear in the summary for that day. Then create two or more === Sub Headers === (Notice the 3 = signs instead of 2) for each separate event on that day.
== First EVent & Another EVent Also ==
=== First EVent ===
First Event details and description text goes here.
===Another EVent Also===
Details for the another event also go right here.
You can also add ==== Sub Sub Headers ==== for an event if there is a lot of information for that event, perhaps someone might want to add a ==== Photos ==== section.
The simplest way to add photos is to upload them to the site (you may need to ask for an account to do this). Take a look at the Photos page for a list of EVents that had photos added.
Then just list them in a gallery block.

Additional [[Category:]] tags can be added to the top of the page, we do not use many categories at the moment, but they help to organize pages and help visitors find related pages. For example there might be a Tesla Category and any event with a Tesla at it could have the Tesla category.

Australian Dateline to Film Electric Drag Racing in Portland at Wayland Invitational II
Hello to All,
Roy LeMeur and Rod Wilde have been stirring up the excitement level at
NEDRA lately, and recently, along with yours truly, have been in contact
with the nice folks at Dateline, Australia:

I'm happy to report the film crew is on their way to Portland. David and
crew will meet with Tim and I Thursday evening for dinner where we'll
discuss what they've got in mind. It looks like we'll be racing White
Zombie this Friday night and perhaps Saturday, too.
There's not enough time to tear the rear end down, assess things, get in
parts, and get it put back together before Thursday, so we'll just have
to settle for low 12's before the cameras.
I'm working with Crazy Rod, Madman, Father Time, Otmar, Steve and Duane
(12 second drag bike) and others to see if we can have quite a few hot
electrics for them to capture for the show.
See Ya....John Wayland
