Next EDKRA Club Meeting is Tuesday March 10, 2015 @ Lumberjacks Restaurant, 5708 75 St., Edmonton, Alberta.
Meeting starts @ 7pm. Existing members and any future members all are welcome. Come out and learn what the EDKRA is all about!
Our club is off to another great start for the 2015 Racing Season. The first order of business was to re-establish our cyber presence in order to communicate to our existing and prospective members. There’s a lot to catch up on, so firstly I would like to thank Mike Trojan and Scott Sinclair whose efforts got us to where we are today for our site.
I would also like to take this opportunity to again thank our 2014 Executive for all their time and commitment last year which made the 2014 season a huge success. Kevin Dowler is this year’s Vice-President, and Rob Kozakowski is the clubs new Treasurer. We are currently seeking people to fill the following positions:
For those of you who wish to commit to marshalling duties this year, please contact me. It’s our desire to have consistency with our corner Marshalls and we will continue to offer a stipend for your services. If anyone has a family member or friend to commit for the 2015 season you can reach me on our Facebook page.
Our Track Safety lighting system is on its way, it will enhance the safety protocols we have and provide a better race experience. There will be an aluminum overhead truss erected at the start/finish line to hold a multi-function display and I will be selling advertising / sponsorship space for the start / finish line, again if anybody knows of a company or organization that may be interested please have them reach out to me.
The 2015 Season schedule is now posted, you will see two dates for the Alberta Shoot-out; a 2 round series between the CKRC and EDKRA, more details will follow, both clubs are still working out details but are planning some fun prizes for the event. You’ll also notice the Western Summer Challenge dates that our club will be hosting July 29 to Aug 2. with exciting trip prizes and much more!
Anyone who is eager for some 4- cycle Spring racing, check out the Spring Showdown on March 27/28 in Glendale Arizona. More information can be found at www.Showdownracingllc.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
For those wishing to have the Rotax EVO engine upgrade, you have until May 31, 2015 to take advantage of the special introductory price for the package, contact Kevin Dowler from Apollo Motorsports or your Rotax dealer for more information.
As a reminder our facility is now offering reserved RV spots with water, power and sewage for an introductory price of $2000 for 2 years. There are only 20 sites available with 6 already sold/reserved, don’t wait until the last minute and lose out. Also for those members who have trailers stored at the track over the winter, please forward your payment to the EDKRA.
And finally, GCC catering will not be returning on a full time basis this year as their business expands to other markets, so we are also seeking a caterer/ food truck business to fill that void. Please refer any recommendations to me.
