MARFC Members go Karting at October Meeting!

october1jpgoctober2A great night of fun and racing was had by those who attended our first fall general meeting for 2013. Our members were greeted by owner Mark Dick and staff when we all arrived. Then Mark came in a let us know how JD Karting came about and where they are heading into the future. They have been open from just before Christmas in 2012 and have not yet had a formal grand opening. They have been going on just work of mouth and been very busy since then on. Next up was our guest speaker 2013 Flat Rock Street Stock Champion Grant Hedges. Grant told us oh how he started racing just a few years ago and all the hard work his family and friends have put into his career without anyone looking back. Then we had our 2013 MARFC Fund Raiser Raffle drawing. Many thanks to all who sold or bought their raffle tickets! For the first time in over thirty years yours truly won the first prize and donated half of the prize back to the club. Our second prize winner bought her ticket just that night and that was Deb Smith who came with Grant Hedges group. The third prize winner was long time member Wally Serylo. A special ladies only raffle was held with the winner receiving a pot of Mums and the winner was Kathy Diovardi. The in house winner was Rand Thompson who received an MARFC sweatshirt. Congratulations to all the winners for the night!  After the meeting many members enjoyed some fast racing on the electric go karts with a few bumps and spins along the way.
