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.
Also, effective Friday July 15, the club has hired Ron Drury as track manager and Race Director. Ron and his family were an integral part of the clubs history. He will be replacing Quinton Martin as Race Director beginning this weekend, we thank Quinton for his service and wish him luck focusing on his race program.
Please welcome Ron back this weekend.
There will be Barbera’s Catering food service on premise for the remainder of the races on 2016. Please support them so as to ensure they continue their fine service to us.
For your entertainment, Barry Robinson has generously donated an outdoor ping pong table (or as the Chinese say; ping pong), it is brand new and currently in the mechanical room between the two washrooms, if anyone would like to use it or even set up a tournament for the evening, you are welcome to use it, just store it back when your finished with it.
Raceievers are just on delay mode as we are anticpating a price change from the supplier and we finalized our budget for the year, I’ll keep updating as I find out more info and hopefully everything will be in place for 2017.
