  1. To keep the momentum going in improving GMP we’re planning a paint party Thursday late afternoon/evening prior to the race weekend. There will be food and beverages for everyone who attends. Let’s keep this thing going and give our concession and washroom facilities an exterior facelift. The road race management team with help from our sponsor Armatas Painting and Decorating will make sure we have all the tools and materials necessary. Please sign up by replying below!
  2. I’m going to have to assume Early May 2019
  3. After watching the weather for the past 3 days we have decided to cancel the “paint party” Thank you to everyone who made arrangements to attend.

    HUGE Shoutout!

    I need to make a few mentions here. Firstly all the event day volunteers who showed up in huge numbers and covered all stations and jobs so well. All the planning in the world could not be executed without all of you! To my team of misfits who worked all day Thursday on a decades old problem of having a lack of a dedicated women’s shower area as well as proper lighting and a few other details. Horhey, Kim, Ian and Brooke. Johnny Armatas. The upgrade you followed through on and have planned for the washroom facility is a massive step towards having facilities we can finally be proud of. This was a huge commitment and a massive improvement. Spencer and Ian. Two full days of banter is no small feat. You guys did a great job. I’ve heard some good quotes from your “performance”. Not to mention the cringeworthy ones. Kim Ambrose. You stepped up huge this weekend...all weekend. From concession to banquet prep and service. It was an absolute pleasure working beside you that evening. Well done! Jen Bell. I’m not sure how you take my horribly communicated talking points and turn them into such a clear and concise message. Your meetings are so efficient and on point. You’re always one step ahead and looking to improve every aspect of our club. The way you handle race control sets the standard for how we should all treat one another no matter the position. Scott McDonald. Without you Road Race would not be what it is today. You’ve made the WSCC one of the friendliest groups around. You are legendary and quite worthy of your award this weekend. Ken Hilash. Ken you are constantly leading by example. You always make yourself available for any task large or small. I’ve not known the executive board for very long but I have trouble believeing we will ever be able to replace you. Thank you for handling the presentations during the dinner and everything else you continue to do for our club. To all the others who pitched in and filled the gaps. Thank you all so much. Thank you to Classic Motor Works for 20 years of vintage race weekends.
