Hey gang, just wanted to send out some info that was discussed at our meeting last weekend.
I brought meeting to order and thanked everyone for coming and also gave a big thank you to everyone who has supported the series.
I mentioned that as always our sponsorships are a work in progress and this is what keeps our payouts up and our Race weekends happening. It seems like every year we lose 2 or 3 sponsors and only gain 1 new one back. Each race is approximately a $1200 cost to the APTS, so if we are to keep the series what it is we ALL NEED to step up and get some new sponsors.... I mentioned that as of the time of the meeting TRANS WORLD DISTRIBUTING had not been contacted yet to see if back on board as title sponsor. (Since then we have confirmed Bill is back on board for 2018).
*** Registration will stay at my trailer as it seems easier on everyone. (Miramichi NHRA open everything will be taken care of at the gate, except if you want to pay your season points dues. Then come see me.)
*** $50.00 entry fee must be paid before making any qualifying runs. Someone WILL be in the lanes to confirm this as it seems to be a reoccurring problem.
*** Points series changes were, Miramichi's NHRA weekend will now count both days for points. Series will be best 3 out of 5 races with a competitor having to compete at 2 different tracks. A competitor attending only 1 track will count their best 2 races. Points awarded will be 20 for show 10 points per round win with an extra 1 for race win and 5 bonus points for top qualifier. Bike and Sled competitors cannot compete at NHRA race so can only receive 20 show points and must come see me to receive them.....
*** It was agreed to keep the first timers free policy. So if you know some racers that have been on the fence about trying the APTS, let them know first time is free...
*** I mentioned that the double in Miramichi in July (NHRA race) will remain unchanged as all parties involved were extremely happy with last year's event.
Thanks again gang and I can't wait to get back to doing what we all love....
P.S. if I missed anything please let me know or if anyone has any questions please contact me here or at above
