In other news, the Plywood will arrive this week with the work crew waiting for the installation. The grandstand seats are being painted this week, with 500 prime veiwing on the two straight aways. The remainder of the grandstands will be carpeted for your comfort.
The F.C.V.A. is also pleased to announce that the winner of the carbon disc rear wheel donated by long time OCA member and track cyclist Greg Stephanson, was Kurt Schreiter of Kitchener with a bid of $250.00. Thanks to everyone who put bids in by the March 31st deadline.
