August newsletter

Hello St Lac Members!

Wow it’s hard to believe today is the first of August. Many of you may be wondering what’s up with our planned karting event as we were aiming for a mid August evening event at Mosport. Sadly, I have not received a reply from their event manager after multiple calls and emails. I guess they must be very busy as you would expect a car clubs’ interest would be high on their prospective customer list. Anyway, I am about ready to toss in the towel and look for an alternative venue. Apparently there is a facility near Smith Falls so that will need to be looked into if we don’t have an answer from CTMP this week. Maybe when Roger (pictured running away from home) posts this on the website we will see some action as word of mouth is usually a good way of spreading news on the gearhead grapevine. Due to this delay we are going to poll you all again (later this week or early next week) to see if a weekend date in September is better timing wise for everyone. Rather than a Thursday evening event this month as the shorter day lengths are not in our favour as Fall approaches, and our prospective numbers were split in two for the previous tentative dates so perhaps a Saturday or Sunday afternoon makes more sense? We’ll see.

I want to thank everyone again who attended the CRX workshop last weekend as we made steady progress with the body prep work. We are scheduling another round of bodywork for Sunday August 13th from 10:30 until late afternoon.

If you have a secret love for the smells of bondo or lacquer thinner come and join us. The address is 657 Simmons Road and cool beverages and lunch are provided…nudge nudge wink wink.

Round four of St Lap IV is coming up later this month on the 24th. We had a smaller turn out than usual in July so I suspect we’ll be very busy with drivers in three weeks time. Having said that, it was a fantastic evening and all the lappers I spoke to enjoyed the benefits of a less busy track.

Lastly, we are still looking for volunteers for this weekends’ upcoming Varac one day event at SMP on Saturday the 5th. Here is the workers link to register: Peter Jackson Races volunteer sign-up. There are spaces available to help with the mock grid and paddock duties and if you are uncertain what’s involved please reach out to the club email and we can fill you in in more detail.

That’s all for now- stay safe and well. DC
