UPDATE TO TRACK WORK DAY

Hi Everyone,

We have made great strides in the track maintenance/repair list but there is still plenty to do before opening day. We would welcome any and all who can assist us this Saturday April 19, 2014. We will start about 9:00 am and work until about 4:00pm. There is some fence repairs and painting that needs to be completed as well as a test of our PA system. There is a small roofing project on top of the booth that Alan Decker gave us last year which is planned to be the new scoring tower for the oval and also will used when we run our sprint course in reverse. Please come out and help us prepare for our opening day, your help is much needed and appreciated.

Another VERY important update is that our paving project is underway and should start April 18, 2014. Mobilization of equipment and preparation work should start no later than Friday. We are still hoping to keep our schedule as printed barring any weather problems. I will keep all of you updated with any changes as soon as possible.

 

Thanks,

Jeff Stark

Work Day Progress

Hi Everyone,

I first want to thank everyone who braved the weather and came out to help get our track ready for the 2014 season.  A lot was accomplished but we do have more that needs to be done.  Our second work day will be this Saturday April 12, 2014.  We will again start about 9:00 am and do as much as we can until about 4:00 pm.  This Saturday we will try to do some painting ( weather permitting) as well as fence repairs.  These will be our main focal points as most of the other task have been completed.  We held off with turning the water on for fear that we are still not out of the freezing temperatures.  So again weather permitting we would need to complete that task which will allow for opening/cleaning the concession stand as well as the ladies and men’s room.

A final note is in regards to membership for 2014.  I will still be accepting applications/fees at the track on Saturday for those who can come out to help.  For those who can not make our track work day please complete the forms and send them along with your fees to Sarah.  She has given you her mailing address in which to send them.

Thanks,

Jeff Stark

Tasks To Complete Track Work Day

Hi Everyone,

As promised I have completed a list for our track work days starting on Saturday April 5,2014.  I have done my best to prioritize the list but really, everything on the list needs to be done. I will be going to the track this week and will make a materials list and then do the shopping to make sure that everything we will need will be there on Saturday. I also will be bringing a lot of hand tools and my generator so that for the most part all we will need is ambitious bodies. I would still recommend that if you have some cordless tools or hand tools of your own it might be good so we can do multiple jobs at the same time. I will have available for use some yard work tools but again if you have some please bring them.

1. Fences/Bleachers - repair/paint

2. Help Linda with opening of concessions

3. Open ladies and men’s room – turn water on – replace plastic fitting

4.Remove rumble strips in corners for paving preparation

5. Clean ladies and men’s room

6. Rake leaves in pit area and bag them up

7. Organize the registration booth with some shelving

8. Modify scale house ramps

9. Booth for oval scoring – repair roof and relocate

10.Distribute blue safety pillows and measure for new ones

11. Remove safer barrier near concession/tower for paving preparation

12. Safer barrier in hair pin needs to be correctly installed

13. Clean scoring tower floor and windows

All of this is weather permitting and if anyone has any questions please call me at 329-6178

See everyone on Saturday I would like to start at 9:00 am.

Thanks,

Jeff Stark

 

 

MEMBERSHIP SIGN UP EXTENSION

Hi Everyone,

Due to not everyone receiving the email blast and also not receiving a mailing about our March 16th membership meeting we are resending an email with the necessary forms. We will also extend the time in which for GVKC to receive them back with your payment enclosed. The email will have instructions as to where to send the forms and your payment. The cut off date in which to receive the $10 off membership fee and also receive the plaque for free is APRIL 12, 2014. That means that any forms/fees received after APRIL 12,2014 will not be entitled to the discounts. We apologize for this mistake but feel that we owe the membership this extension of time to take advantage of these discounts.

I want to remind everyone that our first track work day will be Saturday April,5, 2014. I would like to start at 9:00 am. I will be posting a list of tasks as well as suggested tools to complete these tasks as soon as I complete the list and have prioritized it. This should be in the next few days. The more people that we have to help the easier it will be for all of us.

Thanks,

Jeff Stark
