November 2008 Minutes
From the President
November is the month that we celebrate Thanksgiving! So we must remember to give thanks to those who serve and protect us here at home and across the world. Our service men and women are doing a fine job keeping us safe and giving us the freedom to enjoy the sport we all love. So please stop and say a prayer for their safe return.
Please don’t forget to RSVP for our Children’s Christmas Party as we need to know how many will be attending so we have enough gifts & food on hand.
Our 43rd Annual Awards Banquet is scheduled for January 17, 2009. Tickets are now on hand. Some of our top awards are as follows: MARFC/Eddie Sachs Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award winner for 2008 is Paul Page veteran sportscaster and racer with many years will be on hand that evening.

October Fan Club Days
Cool temperatures with clear blue skies on hand for our VIP tour of M.I.S. in the Irish Hill’s of Michigan. For all those who attended this event it was a very informative time. MIS PR Director Dennis Worden along with his tram driver Terry did an outstanding job explaining all about the new changes the speedway will under take in the near feature as well as seeing the new improvements that the speedway has already made over the last couple of years.
It was also great the have volunteer veterans of 26 years at the speedway Larry & Ann Kast on hand to tell everyone what they do on race weekends. Larry & Ann have been club members for many years. We closed out our meeting inside the Champions Suites high above the speedway where we drew the winning MARFC Fund-raiser raffle prize winners.
Thanks to all who supported our club this year! We appreciate all you members have done to help keep our club continuing into the future. Once again thank you to Dennis Worden & M.I.S. for arranging the tour.
