Plans are moving along. See attached flyer and notice of race. Give me a call or email if you have any questions or would like to sign up. $ 40 is the entry fee which goes toward race entry, race event water shirt and a couple of cold drinks after the races!

Two races, top three between the 1st and last race get nice cash prizes!

Everyone is welcome to enter and ride, though the folks most competitive will be riding their race boards!
