3. Promoting (Passing out flyers, help at promotional events)
4. Sale of Raffle tickets
5. Scorekeepers
6. Holeshot awards ( contact Dee with any info: rageatv@sbcglobal.net)
The problem in the past is that the same people work all year and get burned out and then we are left scrambling trying to find people who want to keep racing alive in our area. If we all pitch in the tasks are not near as bad as we thought. We want to keep this going we are worth the effort, we just need everyone to help.
Promotional Events: We have 2 events scheduled. Merryville Heritage Festival March 31st for more info contact: Angelabryant921@yahoo.com.
Houston Construction Industry Auto Show: May 19th. Contact Matt Carpenter at mcarpenter@alphaiwp.com for more info.
Tech Inspection: Please be aware you will need to bring your helmet with you for it to be inspected as well. We are having some difficulty with number plates. There are a few who do not have legible plates or don't have plates with numbers on the front and rear bumper. Starting Round 3 if you do not have legible plates on front and rear bumper you won't pass inspection. With the larger classes it is near impossible to read your numbers and we don't want to not score you.
Programs/Rider Profile: We will continue to have programs at every race. If you are interested in advertising or know of someone who may be, please contact Micheli Messina at Michelimessina@hotmail.com. Everyone please fill out the rider profile, this gives us all an opportunity
to shine!!!!!
Saturday Practice: Until we get a traveling PA system and a FM transmitter you will have to know who you practice after. There is a practice order, it does not change from race to race so keep it with you. Dee will continue to keep the helmet stickers, so if you lose yours see Dee and he will be happy to give you another.
Race Orders: We are still trying to perfect the Race order texting so please bear with us, if you have not given your number to Jason Bryant please text him your number to get on the list. (409)790-1594.
