October President's Message

Itís been a busy couple months and a great year of racing with RMVR. The Race Against Kids Cancer was a great success and from what I saw, everyone was having way too much fun! Thanks to Morgan Adams and all our spectacular volunteers for putting on an exciting event! And to all those that worked so hard on donations and those who donated to surpass this yearís monetary goal, -THANK YOU!!

 

I knew Snowmass was going to be cool, but I didnít know it was going to be awesomely super cool!! Wow!! What an event!! Racing through the streets of a small resort town lined with spectators and the beauty of Mother Natures trees turning yellow and gold in the backdrop is like no other experience in the world!! How cool it was to be sitting in the tented paddock surrounded by all the race cars, listening to live bluegrass and country music, eating delicious catered cuisine while the sun melted below the majestic mountains that surrounded us. If you were there you know what Iím talking about, if you missed it you should get it on your calendar for next year NOW! So many folks worked so many hours to make this race come to fruition with Wayne Siebrecht and Kyle Popejoy leading the pack with an enormous amount of time invested. Thanks to all the over 160 volunteers that made this happen!! This race is not only a glorious experience but the best marketing for our club. We have already seen growth in our membership directly inspired by the Snowmass experience. So, come out and have a great racing and social experience while supporting YOUR club.

 

Next up and the final race of the season is the Sprints/Enduro in Pueblo that has a lot of cool social activities planned to end the year with a bang! The Enduro has always been the race like no other. Where else do you see over sixty cars racing each other on the track at one time? With that many racers you are sure to find someone to dice with. And thatís what makes racing fun!! So, come out and enjoy the finale.

 

And as we are gearing up for our last race of the year, I would like everyone to remember that RMVR is a club of volunteers. That means we need you to throw your hat in to be on the RMVR 2019 Board of Directors. We will be looking for a few Board at Large positions, one Treasures position and a President-Elect. If you can attend a two-hour meeting once a month in support of your club, please contact me to see how to proceed to have your name added to the ballot.

 

Sincerely,

Brian Nelson
