I raced at the Roebling Road event last weekend in Savannah. During the Southern Kart Club dinner Saturday night, the dire state of club finances was discussed. A number of possible solutions were discussed to help turn things around, which included the following……
– increasing Club membership yearly dues from $35 to $100
– actively solicit Sponsors
– reduce cost on trophy/plaque expense
A club member called on a Doctor who works Trauma at NASCAR events and has raced at Roebling Road with Southern Kart Club. The call was well received and the Doctor agreed to a $ contribution.
A collection was taken up among club members and Racers after Sundays mornings Driver Meeting. Well over $1000 was taken in. I know this is not enough to put the Club on firm financial ground, but it’s a start.
