If you are in town for
the long weekend, your club needs you. The time has come
to move the CKRC equipment stored at the farm near Dewinton.
We will need: trucks, trailers, flat bed trailers, tie straps
and anything that can carry equipment. NO MATTER HOW SMALL,
AS LONG AS IT CAN HAUL. and of course manpower, manpower
and manpower. The move last fall in 2013 went smoothly and
with many hands it should not take too long.
We need to move the corner marshall posts, chain link fencing
and posts, the stairs and flooring of the scoring tower,
the barrels, the scale shack building walls, sea cans, grandstands
and the blue compressor building.
We were just notified that the grading equipment and crew
will not be available until August 5th and it was decided
to use this time to move all the equipment from the farm
to the new circuit. We will have a good chance of saving
a substantial amount of money this time if members can come
together and help out.
Saturday August 2 starting at 9am
Sunday August 3 starting at 9am
