One last note, the EDKRA is still in need of a good food vendor that will commit to our race season, if you are aware of any, please have them reach out to me.
I would also like to take this opportunity to again thank all our 2015 Volunteers. Without your dedication and valued help, our club could not operate as outstanding as it does. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
We are stillcurrently 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 now operational. 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 the EDKRA 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.
