Scoring Help Wanted

We are looking for a crew of 3-4 people that could rotate as scorers. Mike Burba is a great scorer and announcer, but it's very hard to do both of those jobs. We would like for him to be able to concentrate on announcing and the play-by-play that he's become known for and leave scoring to another person. If we get 3-4 people, nobody has to be stuck doing it every week. Duties include entering racers at the beginning of the day, running the computer scoring system throughout the day, and uploading to MyLaps at the end of the day. We will train you and there are always people there to help. Email Chris Burke at points@badgerkartclub.com or any board member for more info.

Garage Project News - Update 3/22

Update 3/22 -The Board of Directors has approved the construction of the project and we will begin ordering materials. We hope to have the building constructed in May. Construction help is still needed. The final location for the project is the north west corner of the paddock, in the area across from the ambulance gate and scoring tower. The project will be a 20 unit building, only 4 spaces are left. You can continue to submit deposits to Sandy Mitz. Registrations in excess of the amount of units built will be placed on a waiting list for the next available space. The proposed location will not provide direct grid access, and rental prices are $1,000 per year for a space and $1,250 for a vendor space. For more information, check out this flyer. A $350 deposit reserves your space. You can also contact Sandy Mitz by e-mail at smitz@mrsc.com with questions.
