Business arising 2022:
1. Little Tykes : Darcie spoke on upcoming ideas for little tykes. We have Ethan Toews confirmed as a “mentor” for our members. Hoping to start session #1 may 11 until June 29. 7 weeks with one week for a rain out day. Will be posting more on social media about little tykes session & an intermediate class on the main track. Looking for sponsors for 20 riders to cut the price in half. We decided there needs to be a volunteer bond associated with little tykes night at least 5 hours. There will be no training wheels allowed. If there is too much interest with training wheels we can look into getting some sort of small coarse in the parking lot.
2. Memberships opening March 24. Will be taking EMT for all payment, easy tracking and no fees associated with EMT.
3. Opening day May 1st. Has not changed due to restrictions.
4. Upcoming race June 18/19. One race over two days. We will be doing paid practice. Mom’s & dad’s races and the popular relay race.
Things to look into regarding race day: FM transmitter , speaking to a few radio stations & getting a new track sign by the highway. There will be a committee set up once all votes and nominations have been finished.
5. Year end banquet October 1st. GPMXA will be hosting the year end banquet , there will be a committee formed to finalize all the small details. Please inquire if you would like to join
