Once again we intend to have a racer meeting in the shop @ 2PM to initiate the 2020 season.  Let your ideas flow and we look for a positive discussion on a variety of subjects.  Some have sent in ideas and if you let us know, we will post so others can consider prior to arriving.  Here are some things we or others have thought of to ponder.

RACEDAYS  –  Avoiding holidays, mothers day, CKNA, & Rt66, we have 13 possible dates for races.  Apr 4, May 2, Jun 13,20,27, Jul 18,25, Aug 1,8,15, Sep 12,19,26.

  • Is 13 enough or do we add in Oct?
  • Do we need to avoid Rt66?   if not that could give us 3 more possible dates
