    Much appreciated. I emailed the site manager to get our event up on their website.

    Edit: We are now on their website

    Just talked to Wayne from Kennedy Motorsports, the SOAR race tire vendor...he will be stating over after the weekend of racing to be there for this Monday.
    If anyone needs tire swaps, it will be $15 a wheel for this event. He also carries all the top brands of slicks and DOT race tires if anyone wants new shoes.

    Yes, it was indeed too short notice. At the time we made the decision it was showing 80% rain, we wanted to try to be proactive and re-schedule however it was a poor decision on our part. All members were contacted about the re-scheduling and those that were unable to re-schedule were refunded immediately.

    Going forward however, we decided to set dates in stone regardless of the weather. Our cancellation policy will chance from cancelling right up to 2 days before the event to a week prior. If you'd like "insurance", you can get it by paying $20 more than the pre-registration price at the gate. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience caused by the short notice. It was our mistake and we have learned from it for our next events. Those that were unable to re-schedule will receive a discounted track day for the next time out as compensation for the inconvenience.

    If you can make it out tomorrow, it's shaping up to be a great day! I'll be going down with a few others tonight to setup & throw a movie up on a projector. It'll be nice to wake up already at the track! After the track day, we'll be hitting up the beach which should be refreshing (We are able to leave the trailers at GBM while there)

    Actually our total attendance was 26; most people had already packed away their bikes by the time we took the picture. We had really strong positive feedback so we look forward to hosting again!

    keep at it. folks may give you a free pass this time for the short notice. or not. you're new at this and should catch a break.
