CANCELED – Summer Fun DE at RPM
July 28, 2018
We have unfortunately decided to cancel the Summer Fun DE scheduled for July 28 due to a lack of participants. We needed approximately 16 entrants to break even and only had 8 signed up as of July 21. The GPR Board did not feel we would gain enough entrants to make it viable for the club to chance it. While we all enjoy participating in DEs, the Board is also cognizant of not needlessly wasting our club’s money by running these events at a deficit. Facing a large loss, we did not feel we should hold the event. We thank the 8 who signed up and hope they understand the situation.
We have worked hard to make our events affordable by negotiating favorable contracts with MAM and by listening to our membership on how they want us to run our events. This was our first 1 day event, which was suggested by the membership via the survey and was only $160. MAM has been open to our suggestions and has worked with us, but having to cancel events does not strengthen our club’s ability to negotiate in the future. Cancelling also takes income away from MAM and race tracks are never flush with money. Cancelling is a lose-lose situation for everyone.
Our next event is a 1 day DE on Oct 13. We hope everyone will be able to make this event.
Join us on Saturday, July 28th, for a one-day Summer Fun DE at Raceway Park of the Midlands. The cost for the one-day event is $160, and novice training is available. Relevant links:
