To all fellow GVKC members,
Happy New Year! As you look forward to 2015, I wanted to let everyone know that preparations are underway for the coming season. This year, several new faces have joined the board to work alongside other members who have a wealth of experience. Together, we hope to make 2015 a great year for GVKC.
To guide our efforts in the coming season, we are asking for your help to define our club’s core purpose, core values and goals. As a board, our job is to guide the club in becoming what all our members want it to be. But to be successful, we need to know what’s most important to you.
As a first step, the board has put together a draft version of a mission statement and key goals for 2015. We’re asking you to take a few minutes to review our work, and share a comment on whether we’ve captured what’s most important to you and your family. Think of this as your chance to voice your opinion, and to let us know what you want to get out of your racing experience. Through your feedback, comments and suggestions, we hope to craft a final document that becomes a reflection of the entire club — not just its board, or any single member.
To submit your feedback, you can either click on the “Share a comment” link at the end of the document or use the link below. Your comments can be shared anonymously if you wish.
We have much to accomplish over the winter — stay tuned for our December meeting minutes, as we continue to work on our proposed goal of improving communications. In the meantime, please enjoy a safe and happy holiday with your loved ones!
By now everyone should have received their invitation for the Banquet. This is a friendly reminder that I need to provide the River’s Edge party House with a head count by 11/11/14. So anyone who has not sent their RSVP yet there is still time.
Please send your checks to me @ 80 Beau Lane Rochester, NY 14624. Please make your checks payable to GVKC. In your invitations there was an envelope provided with my address already attached. With your RSVP could you also please include your choices for the Special awards and the Dick Castor awards. There was 2 separate envelopes included for these as well.
The Banquet will begin with a social hour starting @ 5:00 pm. Anyone wishing to help decorate the Banquet Hall, please meet me there around 3:30 pm. Your help is much appreciated. If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me @ 329-6178

The final race weekend of 2014 is upon us. I just wanted to send a friendly reminder to all of those coming tomorrow that we will also be closing the track for the season promptly following racing. We hope you will be able to stay and help out, the more people involved, the quicker it will go!
