I don't know about you, but I am feeling positive and a bit relieved that the World seems to be working on getting back to normal. We are not completely out of the woods yet, but at least we are moving forward. And that means we can get back to some racing!
The recent polls have shown that people are ready to fly again, and that means we need to be ready too. So here I am, thinking of all of our awesome Volunteers and wondering... How have you been? Do you miss the craziness? Are you ready to get back out there?
If you're looking for some adventure, and you want to be part of the action, you are exactly what we are looking for. It's okay if you are a new member to the club, or an old school veteran or racer, we can always use your support. If you have never been a Volunteer before but you want to, this is your first big chance of the summer. We will get you hooked up with an experienced worker, we will show you everything you need to know, and I look forward to meeting you. If it isn't your first time, you know what you're in for, and I look forward to seeing you again.
As with everything else all around us, there will still be Social Distancing procedures in order, and we will work with whatever quirks this is sure to kick up. If you are not comfortable with something, please let me know asap, and we will figure it out before we even get out there. As in the past, Volunteers will have their lunch covered by the club for the day, and after the races there will be the usual opportunity to get out in your own car for some Volunteer Laps.
I strongly ask again as a personal favor, if you are planning on coming out to Volunteer, please let me know. I lose sleep before the races when I have no idea who is going to be there in the morning, or if I am going to be standing there all by myself with 20 suited up race drivers staring at me. That horrifying image has become one of my greatest fears, way up there with tax hikes and cauliflower. Even if you have just decided, late the night before, that you're coming out with us, send me a message or text. I will have my phone number, email address, and even start a list on this post. Feel free to hit me up with any questions, thoughts, or concerns too, I am always here for you.
That green flag isn't far away, see you soon!
