2013 HARVEST EVENT
« on: May 03, 2013, 08:18:50 PM »
Everyone loves the Harvest Event, Right? 

Well, we do too.  Less pressure, more laid back, cooler temps, more runs, Monday holiday to drive home.  Who would dare to ask for more reasons to race?

The problem is that the event has been lightly attended for the last two years.  And with all of the overhead involved in putting on the event we are sorry to say that it may not be possible to continue.  All of that said, you are our racers and we want you to be able to race, so we will leave it to you.

SO, HERE'S THE DEAL:
We are asking our racers that want to race this fall to get registered BUT DO NOT PAY!  I REPEAT, DO NOT PAY!!!

After the Maine Event, if we have 75 racers registered for the fall, the show will go on.  If we do not, I am sorry to say, we will have to cancel it.

I truly hope that this arrangement will work for everyone.

Quick clarification:
On the website, when you register, you can choose either the summer or fall on the form.  It is the first box to choose from.

It is correct in assuming then that if the Harvest race is held it would be on Labor day weekend, Aug 30- Sept 1st?

I do wish I could sign up for the Harvest event.  I absolutely loved it last year.  I was really happy with the Labor day weekend also.  There is just no way to swing both events this season.  I do hope you get enough entries.  It is a great time and a great event.

I have a question for you guys that cant make it.

Does the event being so close to Bub's and World of speed make it not possible for you to attend?

Not that it really matters, just curious.

I just sent out a mass e-mail to 25 folks that I know may have even the slightest interest in registering for the Harvest Event.  I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Do people registering for the 135 class count towards the minimum 75 you're looking for?

Work is the reason I can't make it this year.  Ohio 4 times a year and 1 Maine eat away the vacation time.  Last year I also did Texas so no carry over days this year.  I will continue to talk it up in hopes you can get the event done.
