In April of 2010 I lost a very good friend and mentor at Pacific Raceways. Three short months later WMRRA lost another member of our tribe in a tragic accident at Spokane Raceway. This is my simple way to honor their passing, by gathering donations to support the replacement and repair of Air Fence units owned by the Washington Motorcycle Road Race Association. Would Air Fence have prevented their passing? I dont know, but it is my goal to help prevent any other losses in any way I can. We are having a short-notice ride to support the WMRRA Air Fence fund. Sunday June 10th at 8 AM, leaving from Snohomish, WA. We will ride Highway 9 to the Highway 20 loop and end up at Mt Erie on Fidalgo Island. The ride will be legal, legit, and mellow. We wont stop you from doing something stupid, but if you get caught its your butt in a sling. Here are the fine details- Cost- $20 per entrant, breakfast is being negotiated as this point. Worst case we find a greasy spoon on the route or hand out coffee and bran muffins for sport. Each paying participant is entered into a raffle, prizes TBA. At least one really cool prize for you track junkies will be on offer. All proceeds from the entrance fee will go to the Air Fence fund. Each rider is encouraged to gather pledges per mile for donation to the Air Fence fund. Ideas are: $0.10 per mile, a penny per mile, $100 per mile, a flat donation, or whatever you can scrape together and coerce your family and friends to donate. Whereas WMRRA is technically a non-profit organization, donations are not tax deductible. However, paying into the fund will provide a level of karmic balance to the universe and you will get your just rewards at a future time. Please let me know via email, PM, smoke signal, or posting in this thread if you want to participate. Every type, style, and ability level of rider and bike is encouraged to participate and will be welcomed warmly. Thanks for your help and attention to this ride. Tell your friends, family, and anyone who will listen. I posted this notice in the track section to get attention of racers, but don't be shy to spread this around to anyone and everywhere that you can. The more the merrier.
