Racing tomorrow, Sunday April 19th!

We are offering a FREE BMX 101 Session tomorrow with USABMX Certified Coach, Buddy Copsey.

This will be a great opportunity for all new riders, families and those needing a refresher clinic to come out in a less hectic environment.

BMX 101 session will be from 11-12 and that time is reserved for clinic participants only.  Pre signups not required, just come on out.  All that is required is a bike, long sleeve shirt, long pants and the desire to have fun.  We have loaner helmets if needed.
Track will open to the public at 12.

No early birds tomorrow.

Race registration is 1-2pm, with racing as soon as possible after.

Thank you all so much for the help so far this season.  The weather has been a challenge for sure!

Although the bulk of the actual track itself is pretty well situated until we put the top coat and soiltac on, we still do have a list of things we are trying to wrap up so we can kick off the season on the 29th.

Some of our volunteers are racing this weekend down in SC so any help you can give, we would appreciate.  Here is a punch list for tomorrow.

– Seeding (the area has mostly been prepped already.  We just need to scratch up some of the areas and spread some seed/fert and straw.

– Registration.  Need help tackling and organizing.

– Concessions is just about wrapped up but we could use a hand just giving it one more look over.

– entrance sign needs to be installed.

– Podium sign needs to be hung.

– Shade poles need to be installed in front of concessions if we can get sleeves.

– Sign needs to come off the side of registration building and re-installed on the start gate booth.  (we took it down for Halloween last year and never moved it back)

– Tree trimming.  We would like to trim up the tree lines along both sides of the track.  There is also a dead tree on the right side of the track that will need to come down.  It’s a hazard.

If you have some power tools to help hang some signs, please bring them.  Tree trimming equipment, chain saw will also be helpful.  Bring gloves well.

We are going to start at 10am on Saturday.  Hopefully the extra time gives the area time to dry out.  The more help the quicker we can get in and out tomorrow.

Thanks you again for all your help.

Next weekends opener has been cancelled.  We are in need of all volunteers for March 14th & 15th.  The weather hasn’t cooperated so far this season but neither has our request for help for volunteers.

Our track needs help if we plan to sustain our 2014 success.  We cant do this without people like you.  Email info@somdbmx.com or call 301-356-0462 to be added to our list.

Hope to see you all next Saturday.
