Though we are about 2k short for hay bales, porto-potties and city mandated signage, we’ve managed to cobble together the dough for all the other costs and hope to break even with donations this year. As always, donations are welcome but never mandatory. The paypal button on our website is our pre-event vehicle for funding. Slide us some electronic green if you can. If everyone who shows up gave $5-10, we’d cover expenses for one year.

NEW FOR 2015:

FIRST AND MIDDLE HEATS FOR KIDS. We will add to the usual 1st lap for kids only by adding a 2nd run for kids only at 5pm, in the middle of the 4-6 racing time. We’ll need all of your cooperation to make this happen. That means clearing the street and being patient while the smaller humans have their second run.

ABSOLUTELY NO METAL FRAMED TRIKES WILL BE ALLOWED to race with other racers, and nothing but plastic wheels will be allowed, period. These metal framed ‘drift’ trikes are a hazard. We will pull all metal trikes.This event is all about making a fool out of yourself on a child’s plastic wheeled toy, not accidentally slicing or impaling your fellow riders.

NO METAL SPOKES, PEGS OR PIECES OF METAL STICKING OUT OF YOUR RIG. If you have metal spokes or pegs you will be asked to tape them up, which is a pain in the butt to do. Plan accordingly.

This event is all about making a fool out of yourself on a child’s plastic wheeled toy, not accidentally slicing or impaling your fellow riders.
