The weekend before each race, we work on the race course. So mark that on your calendars as well if you want to help out. We need all the help we can get, since we lost a lot of wires during the floods. Watch for updates on our Facebook Page.
2017 Race Season Planning Town Hall Meeting
We will be having a town hall meeting to discus the 2017 season and some possible changes at the first Locust Race prep weekend. We want to give everyone a chance to voice their opinions and help us make the races the best they can be for everyone! This meeting will be held after the race course prep is finished.
Last year we had great turn out for the races and we want everyone to come back for 2016. We received a lot of great feedback on how we can improve the races so visit our website and check out the full details on the following improvements. Here is a quick summary of some of the changes.
- Racing starting at 9 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. (So get to bed early AKC)
- Specific times to pick up your race bibs [Which are brand new this year, thanks to Pete’s Printing.]
- Racing in bib order so we can provide times more quickly and after each session.
Gate Judge Volunteer Request (Talking to you racers.)
We would like to ask each racer to consider volunteering to gate judge for at least one shift. Since registration will be done earlier, you should know when your races are ahead of time. Please click the link to sign up for a shift. Volunteer HERE
If you are a member of the ACA, you do not have to pay the $5 event fee for each race. So save yourself some $$ and join the ACA today! Click here for info on the ACA
We are looking forward to a great race season. Please spread the word!
See you on the River!
