Report on MARFC October 2020 General Meeting!

A big thanks to all who came out and supported our club with safe and social distancing for all concern. Thanks for the staff at Dooley’s Tavern in Shelby for having us and working to make our meeting a safe and secure one. Our first guest speaker for the night was Andrew Bogusz 2019 Rookie Junior Racer of the Year Award winner who let us know how his 2020 racing season went after getting a late start because of the COVID restrictions. Andrew also had his car on display. Then Matt Hoonhout owner & promotor of the Silver Bullet Speedway informed all on how they have one of their best years because on the COVID restrictions closing most all of the entertainment in the thumb area of Michigan. Matt said when he could open his facility about six weeks late many new fans came in and with hopes they will return next season. He also told us of all the new changes coming for the speedway in 2021 and hopes his fan and car counts continue to grow. We also, want to thank Eddie Sachs Racing along with Fast Time Motorsports for the donation of food & soft drinks for our members and setting up our meeting at Dooley’s for the evening. We had Larry LaMay being there and donating one of his autographed second edition racing books as our inhouse raffle prize and the winner was Matt Hoonhout. Our annual raffle prize winners were drawn with the winners being for 1ST Prize Dick Lee of Grand Rapids, MI, & 2nd Prize to Betty Sokol of Venice, Fl. And 3rd Prize going to Emily Wiggins of Shepherd, MI. Congratulations to all our winners and many thanks to all who supported our club with the sales and purchase of annual fund-raiser raffle tickets. Once again to Moran & Moran Automotive Group and Versalift Midwest we greatly appreciate all your continued support! Then our 50/50 winner Eric Fitzpatrick donated his winnings back to the club to help support the 2021 Children’s Christmas Party. Thanks Eric!
