Brick infield winners circle!

Happy New Year to all. It was a rough year for lots of people in 2011 lets hope 2012 turns out better for so many. When the Mini Madhouse was being built Mike Johnson and Rick Gauger and others put together a plan to raise funds to buy the things we as a club needed. At the time some people donated different things including time, money, ideas etc. Along the way we as a group collected money to help with things by selling engraved bricks to build a winners circle so to speak in the infield. We had people from our club and lots of other clubs purchase these. As time went buy and people left the club and new ones entered this was over looked and forgotten about, by no ones fault. While I was still the president it was brought to my attention that we had over looked this. The next problem was to find a list of the people that we owed this to for there generosity way back then. I got a phone call this weekend from Mike Johnson that he had found the list with all the names from the past and present on there. I talked to Jon Mason about us going ahead with this plan as the money to do this will not be much, plus how cool would be to see this winners circle with all the names. This would also be a good time to sell more of these to all of our new members that we have picked up over the years. This would really add a cool touch to our track and continue to help promote our club and track and any of us that race there. The money raised can be added to the re-paving fund. I'm not sure off the top of my head what the cost was but it was very affordable. If we sell just a couple more bricks it would pay for us to do the work. Be very cool to do this this spring before our NCS race. We could even add a brick that depicts the start of the club and the start of the track itself. I will have more info once I get a hold of the paper from Mike. Thanks
