West Kootenay BMX 2013

Weekly races saturdays starting Aug 31 10-11am registration.

August 26th is the last monday night race then it’s on to Saturdays untill Sept 28. We’ve had a great first full year of operation with new people coming every week and holding our first provincial race. The track has had some building up and will see more in October, as well as some construction of race buildings.

Thanks to all those that have helped with the various positions at the track.

We’ve had a small staff forming this year but we still need more people to learn the various jobs that are needed to run races. We are going towards having a monthly schedule and a sign board at the track that will show all the positions that need to be covered. Remember, BMX is a family atmosphere and if kids just get dropped off we have racers but no staff to run the race. Of course, sometimes a parent cannot attend, but we really encourage our parents to get involved whether it be to race or help out. We need more than one person to know each position so it’s not as is often said “the same 4 people always doing everything”. Here is a breakdown of the positions: STARTER, STAGER, SCORER, CORNER MARSHALLS, TRACK WORKERS, FIRST AID, REGISTRATION, AWARDS.
