New Message from the PREZ:
NEW CLUB NEWS
I would like to mention a BIG thank you to Fraser at Macritchie Forestry Services and Carlan Services for their firewood donation.
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.
We will require some volunteers to relocate Marshall Station #2 to the infield at the end of the back straight. Hopefully we can have that completed before this weekends race.
There will be Barbera’s Catering food service on premise for the Summer Challenge. Please support them so they will continue their fine service to our events.
In order to avoid congestion in the paddock, please follow all vehicle parking rules outlined in the Summer Challenge regs.
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
Parking assignment requests for the Summer Challenge will be accepted up until July 24, if you are not planning on participating in the Summer Challenge please have your trailer moved to the north field area, if you leave a trailer and are not racing, we will move it in order to accommodate the event. EDKRA members may not be in their regular pit stall assignment depending on your location, in order to accommodate our out of town guests, we are anticipating another huge contigent of racers.
Further to the Summer Challenge, as like last year, I will be handing out a “welcome bag” with information and small gifts, if anyone would like to donate some small swag items please contact me.
