Weekly Update: October 3-9




A few members escaped to Montana for the weekend

Another week into fall and another foot of leaves on the ground. It seems like fall is here to stay. As that’s the case, we are busy planning for next year and need your help to make it a success! One way to do that is to volunteer for our Casino Fundraiser. The Casino is responsible for almost all of the membership benefits we offer and, for a limited time, you can get a $25 discount on your 2016 membership just by working a shift!

Our own race, Velocicross, is also fast approaching (October 8 and 9) and we still need lots of volunteers to help make it happen. Interested in helping out? You can sign up right here! There are plenty of positions where you can volunteer AND still race! Plus, don’t forget the Early Bird registration closes tonight on Zone4.
