I apologize it has taken so long to get this out to you, but I finally have a finalized 2014 schedule to present to you. This took longer than normal, due to the numerous things we are trying to integrate into the 2014 racing season. This took a lot of cooperation from the various organizations we are partnering with for 2014, that will hopefully help MKA to prosper as well as karting as a whole!
** See Schedule Tab for 2014 Race Schedule ***
We have a few new things going on this year. Firstly, the Northwoods GP series will be holding races with us 2 weekends this year. Other than having a lot more racers around, this should not change anything those days. We hope to also host our own Mini Motard points series as well this year, and are waiting for dates from those racers that will work for them.
We also will be taking part in the L.O.206 Cup this year. The specific rules for these races will be announced towards the beginning of the season, but it should be pretty simple. Briggs engine rules, WKA Chassis Rules, Minimum Durometer reading for tires. Both the MKA and Road America races are being held on normal race days at each track. The extra participants that have traveled for the L.O.206 Cup will simply join the normal classes. The home racers will still earn points towards their normal series those races. Participants running the L.O.206 Cup will pay the tracks regular entry fees for the day/weekend, as well as a SMALL FEE to be entered in the L.O.206 Cup Series. The Weekend at Shawano, the L.O.206 Cup will be racing alongside the Northwoods GP series. The track will be shared much like we do at MKA weekends. Speedsters will also be welcome to join in the fun, but there will be no points series for them, just a chance to experience three of the best karting facilities in the Midwest! We are still working out if there will be any series sponsors for the L.O.206 Cup. Although we hope to get a few karting companies to step up to the plate, nothing has been established for that.
Finally, we need to get our General Membership meeting scheduled. This should be taking place early next month. (Board members, please email me directly with dates that you will be available. I want as many of us at these meetings as possible!) These meetings are essential for the health of the club as a whole. Although I cannot think of a lot of changes to take place this year, we do need to come up with a solid plan for staffing the various positions around the track each weekend. We need as many members actively involved in the decisions and operations of the club as we can have. Furthermore, we will be holding the annual elections for board members. Keeping fresh ideas flowing is imperative to helping this club prosper, and that takes people willing to contribute a little of their valuable time to the cause. Elections take place at the second Membership meeting, a few weeks before the season begins.
If you have any questions or comments, please send them to me via email, or call me directly (952-994-2379). Also, if you have something that you would like brought up or voted on at the General Membership meeting, please let me know that ASAP.
MKA Racers and Families-
I hope your staying warm, now that winter is finally upon us!
We have finally settled on a date and location for this year’s Awards Banquet. The Banquet will be held the evening of January 11th at the Rose Vine Hall in Roseville MN. I will have the official online invitations-RSVP’s out very soon.
Please start thinking about donations for the raffles. I would appreciate it if every family donated at least 1 item this year. It does not have to be extravagant, or even karting related, but it would be nice to have a full prize table this year.
At the banquet, I hope to present the 2014 racing schedule and classes to everybody, so we can get an early start on planning this time around.
Stay tuned for more information, or contact me with any questions or concerns.
