A lot to cover and we're busy getting all of the final details in place for this weekend. Here are the highlights and reminders so make your list. Keep an eye on the web site for updates.
RACE DAY REMINDERS....Please don't forget the important items you'll need to to have a successful race day. Please take time to get your equipment squared away to make the day as smooth as possible. You'll need to pass pre-tech on Sunday so a quick review of the rules and review of your needed REQUIRED safety equipment is in order. Please bring the following with you at every race or practice and BE SURE to have it with you during pre tech
First Aid Kit
Helmet (no ecceptions, must be checked for current snell or SFI ratings, see rules)
Be sure you have gone over the whole kart for loose bolts, safety wire in key locations (New racers see me or any other senior club member, board member)
FOOD CONSESSION UPDATE...Good food! Cick here for the menu! The pic wouldn't rotate so you'll have to do that yourself.

Meeting April 2nd at Casa Mexico on Fairview Boise
It's been a long month and we've got many projects coming down the pipe. My apologies for not sending out additional info. We've had the cruds hit my household. Here's a few things up and coming.
Practice Schedule Posted.
Please see the schedule tab and click on "practice sessions" to see the details. If you are interested in officiating practices please let me know. We will not be handing out packets this year and need to schedule practices. Plenty of dates open. Please read the guidelines and follow the directions.
Rules and Schedule
The 2013 schedule and points will be up to date and Straitened out soon. I do know it's goofed and I'm having issues with that section of the web site. All of the dates as of now are good thru July, not much has changed with the rules, but most important are the tires are only MG with the exception of Rotax. Please call or email if you have any questions. Stay tuned.
Please remember to download the 2013 membership application from snakeriverkarters.com and get it sent in as soon as possible. Our ultimate goal is to receive your membership before the end of February so that we can make it one step closer to our goal of paving. We have a multi-year membership available to boost funds. See the link below!
Tires (updated 3-15)
Kid karts will be exempt from tire rules and will have an open tire policy. Rotax karts can run Mojo or MG tires if you desire to be in keeping with the Rotax series which runs Mojo. If you are planning on running the Rotax series, Mojo will be the way to go.
Please remember to order your tires as soon as possible. MG will be the club rule tire for the 2013 season. Details on the snakeriverkarters.com web site front page. Keep in mind, proceeds were donated to YOUR club from last years sales. You don’t have to buy them from Larry Robb, but he made a rather generous donation of $2000.00 to the club for our paving project taking zero profit from the sales. Please support yourself by supporting the club!
2013 Club membership application now available.
Multi year memberships also available!
This year in an effort to raise funds to complete our track re-pave we are asking that memberships be sent in as soon as possible with a requested deadline of Feb 28th. We have also added a section for multi year memberships to boost the income. We hope to have plans in place to pave as early as possible to allow for the Season opening. You will also need copies of birth certificate
