Region 9 QMA Families,
We hope this letter finds you all safe and healthy during these strange times. Over the last few months, the Region 9 Club Presidents have stayed connected to update each other on the status of activities at each track. Earlier this week we all provided an update indicating that all 3 tracks are likely to not resume racing activities until August. Even then, race day gatherings could still be limited to smaller groups. This leaves us each with only a couple months to complete novice training and schedule club races before the weather turns. We quickly realized that trying to reschedule even a smaller 3 race region series would be difficult. Therefore, we decided to cancel the Region series races for 2020. This will allow us to focus on maintaining the health of our clubs by prioritizing novice training completion and club race activities.
We will stay connected monthly to update each other on the status of each track as the situation evolves. When the reopening timeline becomes firmed up, we will try to schedule at least one region race type event (Northern Shootout, Wild Wild West, or Northwest Nationals) to pull us all back together.
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
Darren Chorney, LQMA President
Melanie Deaver, LWQMA President
Thad Luse, WQMA President
