Track cannot be modified without permission, please send an email to channelislandsrc@gmail.com.  Maintenance like sweeping, weeding, removing rocks, and watering are always encouraged. Every year the track is rebuilt with heavy equipment which drives the cost up to around $3,000. Elings Park does not provide any financial aid to the R/C track, meaning that any maintenance required is privately funded.
