5 Oct – The end of the 2014 racing season is over today. And what a wicked up and down and very shifty day it was. See you at the awards!
7 Sep – And the fall series begins on an absolutely wonderful day.
26 Aug – The final summer race was held. The summer series results are tentative pending results of a few protests. It’s been a great summer with only 1 weather cancellation. Here’s hoping the Fall treats us as well.
Reminder to our Racers that the Fall Series begins Sunday, Sept 7th. After racing on that day, the 2nd Annual JYC Chowder Cook-off will be held at Fort Getty. All of our racers are welcome. For details, please see the http://www.jyc.org/Newsletters. Hope to see you there.
