A New Crit course, professional Traffic Control, super-amazing Volunteers, a new Hill Climb course, and a surge in attendance through to the end of August.
2019 Season was a huge hit. Lot's of positives and some challenges.
Always always a whopper round of applause to the core Volunteers. You know them cause you always saw their faces at the events.
While there a many others - and your duties never go unnoticed - the ethos of our Series is community grassroots racing for all ages. Volunteerism is what makes our Series race along.
The first full year of Traffic Control by Domcor was incredible. Both our BVO Crits and S.P. Interiors Time Trials could NOT have happened without Domcor's services.
This comes at a cost.
The Executive has seen the hard cost expenses and review for 2019.
All said - the net deficit for 2019 was about $ 5,700.
This was covered and paid for entirely by S.P. Interiors as sponsorship. We still have the 19 Poster on our storefront window . . .
Inclusion the 300+ hrs I personally pour into the races - the Prokop's commitment to Crits, TTs, and Hill Climbs does not change.
So we adapt for 2020 with some plans and subtle changes.
Sponsorship is our key for 2020.
A number of our Executive are working on large and small scale Sponsorship.
In addition - we will be proposing a return for your potential sponsorship for 2020. Persons and businesses can Sponsor a date of Traffic Control and have the invoice borne to them.
Hence our call out for your participation to this.
Know of someone / some business that wants to contribute ? Know that an invoice will be generated for tax purposes and placement on the OBRC Poster.
Contact an Executive Member you know or myself
email@example.com and we can forge ahead. Average costs have been ~$ 200 for a TT and ~ $ 300 for a Criterium.
Raceday Poster placement, social media mention, Poster recognition, and gameday call out.
There is also the Donation box on our website that is at $50. A few peeople did this for the '19 Season and most appreciated are we.
As described above . . changes. We are also going to flex the schedule for AMGF, and Youth Provincials - so as always keep an eye a few days out and gameday to Fakebook or our website. We'll make sure the word is out for changes or rainouts.
