As many of you know Lina and I retired from race officiating at the end of the season. We have worked corners and staff positions with CCS for the past 20 years. We have fond memories of the racing and the great people we’ve met and worked with. It is truly special to be part of something bigger than one’s self and bond with others to provide a safe track for our racers.
We wish to say Thank You to the corners and staff for the retirement picture, plaque, quilt and trophies shown in the photo. One of the trophies from Grace Bruce is of a workers whistle, as you ‘old timers’ know, the whistle award is truly special and greatly appreciated. The excellent checkered flag quilt is from our good friend Jan Bloom. Also shown is the signed poster and plaque from the corners and trophy and signed picture from the staff. Not shown is the picture of Scruff and Puff accompanied by Jack and Jan. Thanks to Sandy, Dave and the Blackhawk Farms medical staff for the cake. Our final race weekend was very enjoyable.
For your information, the Race Control duties for Midwest CCS have been assumed by Mark Bernard. Mark is a former Harley and Buell racer who has been around the track for many years. Mark can be contacted via Facebook. Megan trained this year to be the assistant starter.
Thanks for the fond memories and remember to play safe.
David and Lina Fanning
