Special notes

Our White River Roadrunners are again looking for team contributors in the state Grand Prix club competition. We need four men and three women entered in the Grand Prix series ($15) to have teams at a given event. If you plan to do three or four of the state Grand Prix races, please consider entering the series to help us make a good showing and spread our name.
