I received a call from our window contractor Bob Farnan, yesterday and he will be receiving all of our new windows for the tower on Friday September 6. It is his plan to install the two front windows first because they will be the most difficult to install as well as time consuming. He is also planning to install these two on Saturday September 7,2013. Therefore, the likelihood that he will be complete by the afternoon for open practice will NOT happen.
We originally were planning to have Microd racing on that Saturday and they cancelled out so I hope this won’t be an inconvenience to any of our members to NOT have any open practice for that Saturday. I think the oval racing can still happen in the morning and those people will have to access the oval by maybe either turning left immediately at the grid gate. Then actually going backward through the hairpin and over to the oval or going the wrong way on the exit ramp to get to the oval. Either way I don’t think that this should be a problem for them.
If anyone has any issue with this I strongly urge you to contact me so that we can discuss it.
I would like to remind everyone the we would like to receive your nomination ballot for the 2014 board of directors ASAP. Please scan them and email them to either Andrea or Terry. You may also mail the to Andrea but Please do so ASAP. It is your club!!!!
Fellow GVKC clubmembers,
As of today, Andrea has informed me that she has only received a handful of nomination forms (literally). Would you or someone you know be a good fit for any of the positions and make our club stronger? All of our board members volunteer their time and effort to make our race days run smooth, and this year we have a record number of new members that may be good candidates. I would like to encourage all of you to please turn your nomination forms this weekend. If you are lazy like I was, you can scan and email them to Andrea or myself, or even stop by the track and drop them off tomorrow (Saturday) since we will be running open practice.
The track was originally closed this weekend. There was enough interest in a practice, and the Salsbury family has agreed to open the track and host on Saturday.
I have had several communications with Josh Klem in recent weeks with regard to the second annual event called Moto Fest. He has asked, and I think it would be excellent exposure for our club, that we could display a few of our karts at this event. We need to have a committed group of karters in place at least a week before the event. The particulars are as follows:
