Hullo Georgia BMX’ers,
Racing at all our tracks is under way. We would like to give a big welcome to all our new riders into the BMX family. Thank you to all the parents and volunteers that make race days happen at all our tracks. We are starting the 8 week countdown to the first State Qualifier that will be at Peachtree City track June 3rd. Mail outs with details will happen at the end of April, and all necessary forms will be available at your local track or simply downloading them from our website.
We would like to announce that the position for State Treasurer is now open. Tim Palmer has done a great job in preparing the budget and handling the finances, but due to heavy work commitments he will be stepping down. Please contact Joshua by e-mail at [email protected] should you be interested in this position. Candy Gore-Maret has put her name forward for this position. We have 30 days from today to accept further nominations. Should there be more than one nomination voting will take place at the State Qualifier June 3rd, if not the position will be awarded to the sole candidate. We currently have $2092.90 in our bank account as of march 28th 2006.
We are looking for your design for the Georgia State jersey that will be awarded at the State Championship. I know we have some design students out there! The design will be 2 color print on a single color background. Remember we need to stand out in a race and there will be over 1400 riders at the Presidents Cup in Ohio, so keep it simple, not busy, interesting with a WOW factor. Georgia State will renew your license for you as an incentive should your design win.
Welcome to our new track Speedway BMX. This track will be located in Griffin, owned and operated by Rob Potter. Rob’s hotline extension is 103 where he will asking for volunteers to help on work days, and announcing any other race ready information. We will keep you all updated with pictures and news as his track progresses. Stay tuned to www.georgiabmx.org and www.ptcbmx.com. We do have several other tracks in the works in North Atlanta and I will keep you posted when I have definitive news on their progress.
Carolyn Grant will have the points out April 10th on our website for the Georgia State Series 2006. Please check your points and if there is an error please fill out the protest form, available on line or at your track, and Carolyn and myself will investigate and respond to you. Please understand that we must have this protest in writing and no verbal complaints about your points will be entertained. We will respond within 10 days and a copy of your form with the correction if necessary will be mailed to you. Race days are very hectic and we want to give your protest our full attention, so please respect our wishes and on receipt of your paperwork know that Carolyn and I will handle it efficiently in a quiet environment! 10 days allows us to mail out the response to you. Where possible we will e-mail the result of our inquiry. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation in this procedure.
Look forward to seeing you all racing, good luck to all our riders who will be traveling this spring break and competing in Florida.
Yours in riding,
