Volunteer Deposits for 2018:
The Club has had a difficult time in getting volunteers to assist with race operations and maintenance of the track and facilities. As a result, the volunteer deposit will be $300 per family. This fee will be collected with the membership fees through MotorSportsReg.com or at time of registration. There will be a list of tasks to be completed at the track and each individual will be credited with $15/hour volunteered. This could be for cleaning the washrooms, mowing the grass, being a corner marshal, etc. Once the family reaches 20 hours worked, the $300 deposit will be used as credit for future races. More details will be provided soon.
The Executive also reviewed the financial statements for 2015, 2016 & 2017 and have forwarded them to an external accountant to be filed appropriately.
THE USE OF RACECEIVERS FOR THE 2018 SEASON
The EDKRA will continue with the use of RACEceiver for on-track communication with racers this year. The expectation for the 2018 season will be that each race team purchases at least one receiver. The receiver will work with any earbuds that use a standard 3.5mm jack.
KART NUMBERS – NEW MEMBERS PLEASE READ!!
For all new 2018 members needing a kart number, please refer to the “Kart Numbers” page located on the Racer Info menu for the list of kart numbers that are currently reserved for other racers. Kart numbers are requested as part of your registration.
