I like Jake's suggested schedule.

I also like the mix of single races and double headers. In my perfect world we would start the year with single race events (3 singles from May to early June), then do 3 double headers through the summer with 3-4 weeks between races, and then 2 more singles to round out the the year in September. This allows for fewer commitments in the summer when people are looking to take vacation, but still keeps some single race events, which have their own benefits.

I have to agree that Jakes suggested schedule sounds great. As I personally hope to do races in both Edmonton and also in BC with my brother, the breaks between Calgary races would really help. And time for family vacations as well.

I think a mix of single race weekends and two race weekends provides a good balance.

My concern is with overall available track time. With the larger membership thought needs to be given to T and T track time. It can get pretty crowded. Should there be more organized T and T days? Should the organized T and T days start earlier?

Fred. I realize we’re late to the party on this convo bet I really enjoyed the double headers. I like doing them once a month. As you said left a lot more time to do other things. Also we would love to see race days move to saturdays on single race weekends. Our boys are exhausted on mondays and this would allow them to get caught up on sleep. And besides... the Trims would come. Lol.

So I was going to come one here and say all doubles, 6 of them and change directions right in the middle for some drama. But after reading some of the posts, singles early (May/June) and late (September......October) doubles in the middle
with a good long break 6 weeks July/August. (Jakes or similar).

I would like to see some different formats, inverts, choose cone, just mix it up a bit.

Saturday singles are fine with me I wanna beat the Trims......I mean race with the Trims
