Avon Antique and Historics Event Changes

Post by Scott Kneisel » Sun Jun 06, 2021 4:07 pm

Hi All,
We are looking forward to next weekend for our all time fun event for the old stuff.
We originally were not going to open the track on Thursday for running but have had some requests to open the track soo

As of 12noon on Thursday the 10th, the track will be open for karts and minibikes (separately of course) until 5:00PM
No increase in cost.
Just a reminder that we will have free water on Thursday but the concession stand will not be open until 8:00AM Friday morning.

Another change is the Restored Power Products AH58 will be raffled off instead of a 50/50 raffle give away.

Here is how it will work:
Tickets for the engine raffle will be $20 each.
If we don't sell enough tickets to cover the cost of the engine then we will refund your ticket cost so there is no risk of loosing your money.
The raffle winner will be announced on Saturday, you need to be present to win.

The 50/50 raffle will be normal with the winner receiving half the till as usual.

The weather is supposed to be fabulous so come on down!!!!

Got up to Avon this weekend and I can't thank Scott and Sam enough for helping to keep the early days of karting alive and well.
It was great to see a good size field of old karts out sliding around on the track.

The weather was great, the people were even better plus got I to meet some new folks to the hobby combined with battling Roger Santee for probably over 100 laps in our Clinton powered rigs plus Mike Schalager letting me run his B-Stocker kept a big ole shit eating grin on my face all weekend long.

Think I may even have to build me one of those twin engine things for myself.

Overall I think it is a safe bet to say "everyone had a blast" and I hope to be back next year.
