This time it's real. We're going racing!
Many thanks to the fine folks at the City of Lacey - and especially our own Jerry Dunlap who never gave up on getting a season in this year - we're going racing this weekend!
With Thurston County in Phase 3 of the Safe Start protocol, the City of Lacey today confirmed that we not only can run our Diamond Cup race this Saturday (July 11), as originally scheduled, but we have also been approved to run the Champion Spark Plug Regatta the next day on Sunday, July 12.
Open water is expected by 9 a.m., followed by a mandatory drivers meeting at 10 a.m. If you still haven't yet had your boats inspected for the 2020 season, please be sure to arrive early to get that done.
We also will run the first leg of the modern Triple Crown on Saturday. The first leg of the vintage Triple Crown will be on Sunday. More details about the new Triple Crown Series can be found by clicking here.
The club has adopted Safe Start policies that you can read by clicking below. We will also review this at the drivers meeting, but please be aware and prepared.
Please plan to bring (and wear) your mask. They will be required whenever physical distancing cannot be maintained (i.e. while in the driving area spotters/drivers, etc.). The club will have limited sanitation materials (hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, Lysol, paper towels, as well as some disposable masks, in case someone forgets theirs. Masks will not be required when physical distancing can be maintained.
Now...go get ready. Let's go racing!
