Tech Inspections:

For those of you planning to attend the First Fling Driver’s Training or Driver’s Ed events, you will need a signed 2016 Tech Inspection Form to participate. You can find the form on the club website (nordstern.org), or in the Newsletter. There are a number of local shops who can do the inspection for you. Don’t leave it until the last minute in case work needs to be done, parts ordered, etc.

Helmets:

Following National PCA Guidelines, 2005 dated helmets will be accepted at our driving events through June, 2016. After that you will need a 2010 or newer helmet.

Nord Stern Charity Calendar

Please watch for a separate mailing on a new Charity project, led by Chris Tobkin, our Charity Chair, Michael Grabner, a professional photographer, and ably assisted by Christie Boeder, our Newsletter Editor.

Whew! What a line-up! That’s it for now. I hope to see you all soon!
