Hello St Lac Members,
Just a quick reminder we are back at the Loyal Oarsman this Thursday, April 27th, from 6:00-9:00 pm. This will be our last social get together for wings until the fall. As I have mentioned in previous emails, if you haven’t come to one of these evening events before, don’t be shy as we had over 30 members last month so plenty of sociability to be had by all even if you are a car hermit like myself.
In other news, preparation for the June Race weekend at Shannonville is going well.
We had many of the volunteers show up earlier in the month at Shannonville for the initial orientation training and were introduced to the team that will be leading our efforts to support this CASC sponsored race weekend. A key takeaway was understanding that in order to register as a volunteer you need to register for the weekend as a worker via the MsReg portal. For those members who are going for training to the Spring Trophy races at Mosport on May 6th and 7th here are the portal links.
As soon as the similar worker link for the June Shannonville race is posted we’ll share that with the membership.
The Picton autoslalom in August is still up in the air. However, no matter the outcome we are now looking at a one day event on Saturday August the 12th as the increase in costs this year for the full weekend exceeded our budget. It’s still not clear if our counter offer for the one day event will be accepted by Base 31 as the increase in fees was significant; but we are still optimistic we can strike a deal for the single day rental. So as soon as we have any positive news we’ll share it with the membership.
St Lap IV has just 9 spaces left so if you haven’t paid for your pass please don’t wait much longer. Here are the details from an older post and the payment link:
That’s it for now looking forward to seeing many of you later this week and over the summer at the track.
