UPCOMING EVENTS

Important Update on Season due to Covid-19, and Update on Work Day!

Due to the certain rules and restrictions in place from the Covid-19 outbreak we have to postpone the start of our race season.  I cannot give you a set date yet on when we can open but when we do I am hopeful we will all bounce back!  Also when we do have a date to open we will be adjusting the available racing weekends, the required number of races for year end trophies, and how many races will be counted for final scoring.  I know I can’t wait to see all of you but until then stay healthy!

Our groundskeepers will still be holding a work day tomorrow Saturday April 4th starting at 7am.  There is not too much left to get done but they are looking for anyone willing to come help.  They have some heavy equipment to move some dirt and moving Styrofoam blocks.  There is raking and branch pickup needed in the grass area of the pits and upper access road.  Branches also need trimming along the upper road so they do not scratch trailers or vehicles.  If you can bring gloves, rakes, blowers, or anything you can think might be needed.  If you have any questions or concerns you can call 585-748-5470 or email sampolito@rochester.rr.com.

Just to stay ahead, if anyone that might not have sent membership forms in I would like to get a start on the computer entering everyone in the correct class, kart number, and transponder number if you have your own.  If you could email me (gvkc60@gmail.com) your info it would be helpful!  And don’t forget to renew your transponder subscription for the year.

Thank you,
Darla Frederick
GVKC President
