Alta groups hears raceway plans
Reminiscent of Mitch Miller's singers or a mini-Tabernacle Choir, the Alta Kiwanis greeted Lee Meyer, speaker for the morning's program Tuesday, April 2, at 7 a.m. The rich resonant voices were aided significantly by those of eight stalwarts from the Sac City Club.
Meyer, co-chairman of the newly formed "Checker Flags Promotions," outlined the group's plans for the 2002 racing season at the Buena Vista County fairgrounds.
Mayor goals of the organization are to guarantee safety and promote family entertainment. The 19 races in 2002 will be scheduled for Wednesday nights from May 1 to August 30. Thursday nights will be set for rain dates.
The racing programs are sanctioned by the I.M.X.A, an international association for ensuring quality programs.
Meyer and John Bauman are the co-chairmen of the sponsoring group. Bauman brings the experience of carnival work to "Checker Flags Promotions."
General admission for the races this year will be $7 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and free admissions for those under 12 years of age. The purse for the races will be $5,000.
The club set April 13 as the day for cleaning the ditches, while May 22 was chosen as the date for the Senior Honor Student Recognition Dinner. The club approved of individualized medallions for each honoree.
Club members learned that the Alta Annual Golf Tourn-ament this year is set for June 21.
The meeting was adjourned with The Pledge of Allegiance.
