Mod Tour recap
The night went well and the features put on a good show.
There was some disagreement with track prep and as a consequence, we may have lost the volunteer track crew.

Meet at Town & Country Shopping Center at 8:30 am on Saturday if you are interested in walking in the parade.

The Bobcat blew a head gasket and will cost around $1800 for a new gasket and $1000 for labor. Jeff suggested that it be sold for parts. The club is leasing one from Swanston for the remainder of the race season.
A suggestion was made to look into leasing a water truck for the race season as opposed to replacing the water tank to see what the cost savings would be.
Found volunteers to help out at the last few races as the volunteer group that was helping out hasn’t been able to provide volunteers.
