Times have been very tough for all of us here in the USA since 9/11/01 and will continue for some time. We have all been touched in some way by these events but being as strong as we Americans are, we will get through it. It will not be easy for some of us and we are all feeling the effects whether if be as simple as the new inconveniences due to security issues in our country to as personal as loss of jobs, businesses, or friends and family members. I wish you all well and hope to see you at our Awards Dinner and during our next race season. As trivial as our hobby of racing motorcycles may seem, we all need the diversion and comradely it brings.
Due to the loss of business, since Sept., the Sheraton in Waterbury has informed us that they will be closing Dec. 15th. We have been holding our dinner there for 15 years. The Waterbury area has been demographically in the center of our membership and the hotel has been doing a great job for us. We have a last minute back up plan and are moving the dinner to the Stamford, CT area Sheraton for this year and we will see how it works out for everyone.
The details have been mailed during the first
week of November and are posted here on this
site. The cost of $38 for attending is $3 more than it cost to attend
and AAMRR dinner 20 years ago. (AAMRR was the original racing
organization here in the Northeast - thru 1985). Sure, you could go out
to dinner for less. For instance, the bar across the hall at the
hotel. Have a beer and a burger for $20, then show up and participate in
the awards portion of the night. The problem is that the $38 that
everyone else paid, helps to cover the cost of the entire day.
Everything from the mini trade show, appetizers, hall rentals, dinner,
taxes, gratuities, and a portion of the trophies. So please help the
cause, spend the extra $18 and have dinner with your friends if you
plan to attend the awards. Remember that since the loss of AAMRR a group
of racers, friends and family took it upon themselves to be sure that
the Awards Dinner happens and at a much greater cost to themselves
than a mere $38.
