Next EDKRA Club Meeting is Tuesday November 8, 2016 @ Lumberjacks Restaurant, 5708 75 St., Edmonton, Alberta.
Meeting starts @ 7pm.
New Message from the PREZ:
Well the season has come to an end and everyone has packed their karts and equipment away for the long Alberta winter. As a reminder if you have your trailer still parked at the track and plan to keep it there all winter, please pay your 2016/17 storage & parking fees to the executive asap. Also, I would like to please ask that all trailers are to be stored off of the paddock area and parked in the northern section where the old track used to be. This is to ensure a problem free, drainage and drying of the paddock in the spring of 2017. The faster the paddock can be driven on, the faster we all can get racing :)!!!
I would like to mention a BIG thank you to Fraser at Macritchie Forestry Services and Carlan Services for their firewood donation as well as Warren Stevenson for his generous donation of fuel for the summer challenge. Without these important sponsors of our club, the events would not be near as successful as they are. Thank you again Warren, Fraser and Carlan for your generous support.
The Raceiever plan didn’t quite materialize like the executive had wanted it to due to unforseen issues in 2016, but the executive will continue to work toward utilizing these in 2017. As the executive finds out more info on availability and pricing, it will be mentioned on the website and the information passed along at monthly club meetings.

The Club is in need of a Tech Director and a Website director for 2017, so if anyone has interest, please forward the name to any of the executive for consideration.
