We’re long due for an update on the status of the club; I’d also like to take this time to let you all know that our next meeting will be 6:30pm Tuesday, July 7th at the Rickey’s in Langley (8720 204th St, Langley, BC).
Attendance for this meeting is mandatory; we will be discussing the balance of the season and the short term future of the club.
As most of you are aware we had a rocky start to the year, our opportunity to run out at GMR (Greg Moore Raceway, Chilliwack) was narrowed to the 250cc field due to limitations on the lease from the Kart Club. This was only discovered 4 days before the first event and was a curve ball to even the PCMRC (Pacific Coast Mini Racing Club) who had some of their classes (CBR300 Style Bikes) limited as well. This set us back months of planning and left the majority of us without a true opportunity to ride.
Some of our members with 250cc bikes have been participating as they meet the displacement standards that are now being enforced – feel free to contact me should you want more information on how to meet up with these members (778-836-5719).
We’ve fielded a few questions about returning to Tradex – as accommodating as they have been in the past; there have been a few changes which make it risky for us to return. The main issue is that we can no longer cancel events with notice; once we sign the contract we are committed for the full cost of the venue rental should we not have enough riders. We will discuss the other limitations at length during our next meeting.
The Exec have been working through a few other venues that could potentially host us for what is left of the season. We will be discussing these opportunities and the short term future of the club Tuesday.
We look forward to seeing you there – Feel free to contact Zach Leverington 778-836-5719 should you have any questions.
