Kissena Sunday Series Makeup

the makeup date for the rainout of the kissena sunday series is july 31. 10:00 registration, 11:00 racing.

this weekend series is really fun. it's like a day at the beach with kickin' racing to watch and compete in. the twilight series has a hectic feel to it because of the lighting situation, but in this series, that's not an issue. plus, you get to watch me get my butt handed to me by the cats 1-3 now that they've banished me to the world of guys with thighs (they moved me up to the A Group).

i believe that there is no racing this weekend. anyone know for sure? if there isn't, i'm trying to get to LVV in T-town.

I remember you saying last night that you got a permit for that day... a suggestion: I think it would be fun to have races that were broken down into more specific categories according to performance level (if we could get enough people out). Meaning that instead of a Men's B field with a wide range of, ahem, talent, maybe break it down more (so that maybe I could win ). How do we determine who goes where? I don't know. Maybe a time trial in the beginning? Flying 200 times? Just a thought.
Keep us posted about what's going on.

Ok, I'm confused, is this event the 24th or the 31st? If not, what's going on for the 24th at the track?

there was nothing going on at the track today, just team trackstar doing a photo shoot.

next sunday (the 31st) trackstar and crumpler, the bag company, are putting on a racing and barbecue day. I also deserve a little credit, since i got the permit and the ball rolling with passing this through the committee, thank you very much.

i expect this to be a big success, as long as people show up. so, to everyone i know, come on out to the track next week! don't forget, this event will be to benefit spencer, ozzy and whitesnake. the entry fee is $5, which will go to prizes, and donations for the hurt guys will be accepted.

Hey, in my book you get a lot of credit, you started the weekend rides, now the morning nyack rides, and you always do your part getting new people to come out and ride.

You are a good ambassador to the sport. Ok got to stop now.
