  1. Great summary Roland. I couldn't agree more. But a special thanks to you and Darin and Jordan. As always, this event is the highlight of our year. It is the single most important event for our Club in terms of outreach and engaging new members, new entrants, and hopefully new racers as well. It showcases the best our club has to offer, from the professionalism of our organizers, marshals and event staff, to the caliber of our curriculum and instructors, and ultimately, the quality of our overall competition programs. All of that is delivered in a way that makes it all look so smoot
  2. This excellent article appeared in the Gimli Express Weekly News today, describing the WSCC's role in the history of GMP and our recent efforts to engage with the RM and CDC over the future of the track. A huge note of thanks to our Road Race and Publicity Director Mat Léveillé for his hard work in setting this up and his deft handling of what is an extremely sensitive issue. This is something we on the Executive have been working on for quite some time, long before even the RFP announcement in the April edition of the Express Weekly News. It is important that the Club's perspectiv
  3. Thanks Brad and Mia for another amazing edition. Incredible work - as always!!
  4. Given the recent updates to the Province of Manitoba Public Health Order and concerns raised by members and other potential attendees to WSCC club events, the Executive Committee has prepared the following Policy and Practices Directive based on our review and interpretation of the current Public Health Order and regulations. This Policy and Practice Directive will be presented at the Regular Club meeting tomorrow evening at 7:00 pm. Instructions on how to attend the meeting are posted on the Forum. We hope that all members will attend for this important discussion and vote. With t
  5. Thanks everyone for your input and comments. I can advise that the Executive has assembled the 2021 WSCC COVID-19 Policy and Practices Directive that will govern all events held by the WSCC for 2021. This will be presented at the Club meeting tomorrow night for review and passing. It will be posted here on the Forums later today so that people have an opportunity to review the Directive in advance of the meeting and come prepared with any concerns or comments they may have. Unfortunately, with the recent change in the Province's Public Health Order, it didn't give us as much time to
  6.

  7. Lots of interesting perspectives here. Good to see that people are invested and want to discuss solutions. I think everyone shares the view that we need to spend as much time and money in Gimli as possible, and engage with the community at every opportunity. Remember that each and everyone of us is an ambassador for the club and the future of GMP. I hope to see you all at the meeting on Thursday for more discussion of the article that appeared in the Weekly Express at the beginning of the month and the impact this development is likely to have on the future of the track.
  8. I've reviewed the Public Health Order in detail and have advised the Executive that it is my opinion as President of the Club that we are permitted to hold our events, provided we observe the Public Health Protocols that apply to outdoor events (i.e. remain in cars unless 6 feet of social distancing can be maintained and we encourage everyone to wear face masks even when outside, and changes to washroom facilities are made so that a minimum of 6 feet social distancing space can be maintained at all times - or in other words - only one at a time). We will be discussing this at the meeting
  9. SpeedFactor have been doing all my work for years. They’re fantastic and incredibly accommodating. Top notch work and their knowledge of and support for both tuned road and racing cars in particular is so difficult to find in commercial shops.
  10. Roland I had no idea you raced with and against Sabine. What an incredible and unforgettable experience that must have been. She was one of the luminaries of our sport and her passing will be greatly missed by not only those who knew her, but by those of us who merely count ourselves among her legions of fans around the world.

  14. As many of you are aware, there are a number of rumors circulating that GMP has been sold by the Gimli CDC. We’re aware of these rumors and our information is that this is not accurate, though we understand there is a concerted effort being made by a private consortium to purchase the facility. Moreover, your Executive has been aware of this developing situation for a number of months now. We have been in communication with the CDC and have been requesting a meeting with the Board to discuss the matter since this summer. Nevertheless, we have not discussed this openly with the m
