If you need resources to help manage shipping and addresses, check out this topic which has a nice address book template you can use. It was made to (kinda) work with Pirate Ship which can help save on some postage.

And don't forget to check out the Tournament Hosting collection of topics for more ideas and links.

I don't mind any of the logistical hassle as long as folks send enough $$ to cover the return.

If I want to be nit-picky, I prefer cars to be sent in packaging I can easily reuse to return

Thanks for what you do hosts!!  What I got from this is:

-Send return slip

-Send cash

-Send quality box

-Label any containers 

-Be patient, appreciative, and kind!

Okay so the last race that I hosted I opened up the cars and took a picture of the boxes and then I grabbed a notebook and I labeled what everybody sent. That way when it came time to put everybody's stuff back together I know who had what with what and what it came in I know that is more work and when you have a larger field it's of course more work. I believe the last race I hosted was everybody had to send in for three different classes and two different cars for each class. I completely understand how frustrating return shipping can be organization for both host and racer is very beneficial. Also so is a little bit of patience understanding and kindness. Racers need to remember that it's just as much effort for a host as it is for you and hosts need to remember that it's just as much effort for the racers as it is for you. We all need to remember that it's a symbiotic relationship.
