Headwaters Update 5/13

  View Printable Version 
Current NewsCombined message BIR First (short)

Headwaters weekend is also Slowpokes. Red Light is up for both events.

Slowpokes Saturday is Jim Anderson, Brandon Winger and Brian Wanek. Paul Ahles joins the event on Sunday. RLR does NOT do corner staffing for that event.

I have heard conflicting stories on the BMW weekend and the long and short of it is that to my Knowledge Red Light is doing Rescue and Corners for this event, SO if you are not on this list I don't know who you are working for or what event you are going to be at. I have 7 paid spots for this event, and rescue My list for June 3-5 is

Rescue - Ahles, Andreson
Corners - Andrew, Tim, Bob (Friday and Sunday only), Mike, John (unsure if you meant all 3 days or just Friday and Saturday). Still looking for 3 more corner staff for this event

GAte lists are driven by these lists and will be adding Mike to the Slowpokes list. Please advise if you wish to be added to an event.

OK on to RALLY

Current list is
R1 - Ahles, Open
R2 - Rosholt, Think filled
R3 - Stearns, Open
R4 - Talked to 3 new rescue types. One committed to start medical and one backed out. A third is confirmed and looking for a ride.

Safety sweep - Open R1 to operate as such following First stage if needed

HS1 - Dick Klute, passenger
HS2 - Nick Kinteigh, Passenger

Green Light - Holden Harwood

I will be doing the Rally 101 in my room at this point with refreshment provided. Start time 19:30 Will post up room when I know it.

Questions? call or text me.

Headwaters update 4/28

  View Printable Version 
Current NewsHere's the Latest

Current staffing is
R1 Ahles-r Open
R2 Rosholt-r, (pretty sure he has a passenger but don't have that written down)

R3 Still Needed
R4 Still Needed

Talked to two additional folks that were interested. One was military trained but not current and the other had a vehicle and no certifications but had a friend who was. Do not recall putting them in my mind as commiting to work medical yet.

I have also gotten a commitment from Hannah Sorenson to be part of the teams. She is qualified but at this point she was thinking passenger status.

Even if you cannot make the event please see if you can find a person to assist with this event. we are nearing 3 weeks out and still need at least one stage medical team. I'd prefer two.

Safety Sweep Still Needed

Heavy Sweep 1 - Dick Clute-r, Passenger
Heavy Sweep 2 - Alex Kinteigh,

Green Light - Holden Harwood

I have heard from a couple of potential medical folks but one has no vehicle and the other is waiting on a friend to see if they want to assist.

I will be doing the rally 101 on Friday night and will provide adult libations for those attending. Will most likely be in my room. will advise if that changes or the room number. This is open to anyone that wants to know the behind the scenes stuff of rally. Ill be assisting with banner and other tasks Friday PM so plan on that starting about 1930.

Reminders:
IF you have made reservations already please call the hotel and request the Headwaters Rally rate for your reservation. it is finally set up and should be available.

There is also a need to go to the ARA site and register for the event ( https://www.americanrallyassociation.org/volunteer-registration ), To get and be insured for the event there is a process that ARA is using that requires you to be registered with them.

This is a single day event. we are planning to start the race around 10 AM and to get done around 6 PM to allow enough time for a banquet and time to visit the casino.

The rally will consist of 6 stages using 3 stage crews and consisting of 70 miles of racing.

Online registration is now open at
www.rallymasterpro.com/workers/?group=1

Early registration period from 6-9 on Friday, May 19th at the Northern Lights Casino in Walker. Registration on Saturday morning will be from 6-8:30am at the same location. We will be located in the large white tent on the west side of the casino this year.

Headwaters and BIR

  View Printable Version 
Current NewsHello all

First things first, BIR stuff cause its shorter.

Red Light has a new first event this year. The Actuality of it is there are two events the same weekend.

Our first event is Slowpokes at BIR (May 20-21) and will be covered by Brandon and Jim on Saturday and I'll be joining them on Sunday.

For those of you that work BIR and those of you that might want to know I would like to pass along the following:
With permission:
Mike Nolta was diagnosed with cancer. It is in his upper lungs and effecting his vocal nerves and throat. Mike is in good spirits and has been in contact with me over numerous text messages. The cancer was caught early and with Mikes health in as good as shape as it is he has elected for the aggressive and more radical treatment approach. Between Chemotherapy and radiation they feel that he can beat this. Mike will be a little less active this year so if he's missing or you are thinking about him please say a prayer for him and his health. Mike has been a valued member of the Red Light Staff for may years and despite having to deal with some issues (that were later discovered to be the result of the medications he was on) Mike has been a good and loyal friend. He is in my thoughts and prayers and despite any issues you may have had with him in the past I hope that you will pray for his future health.

New Year and New changes

  View Printable Version 
Current NewsThe annual Stockholder/Social is in the books. Once again a great time and my thanks to all who ventured out to visit.

I have gotten some calls and commitments from a number of the regular customers and have been informed that one of our clients wants to try something different this year.

As I was told by my parents a number of years ago, if you cannot say something nice about someone then say nothing at all. I'll follow that advice in this forum and format as it's sound advice. I will say, to be sure that we know to whom I am referring, the mutual corner staff at the track has made a number of comments about their employers over the years. I have not heard bad things about race groups or the track proper. So, let the chips fall were they may and hope for the sake of the race groups they don't have any unpleasant experiences as a result of their choices.

Red Light has our next event in May for the Headwaters Rally More to follow in e-mails later this month.

Stay Safe

Annual Social

  View Printable Version 
Current NewsOnce again it's time for the Annual Social for Red Light Rescue

Details:
1/21 Start time officially is after 16:00 but you are welcome to help with set-up and prep if you choose to arrive sooner. Finish time is when you choose to head home or crash here for the night.
Location is at Red Light Headquarters here in Hopkins. Text or call me for directions.

We will have a number of munchies, Chili and a second entree. In the past we have had sloppy joes and build your own tacos. I am open to suggestion. Adult beverages will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own as well. There is also a planned brunch on Sunday for those that choose to stay or return Start time for that is 10:00.

It would be nice to get a head count for planning. if you are getting this invite you are welcome to attend. Friends are welcome as are any potential workers for Rally or Red Light Rescue.

I am taking requests for any specific beverages or munchies....See you in a few weeks.

End of Year Wrap up

  View Printable Version 
Current NewsI hope that all of you have had a good thanksgiving.

Couple of items of note:

First my current employer has me with far less free time than the last one so these updates are a little farther between. Keep in mind that I am available by phone most every day as that is the preferred communication method of a professional driver. Texting is $2500.00 for the first offense in a truck.

Annual social is Jan 21 this year. Same drill as in the past. It would be nice to get a count for planning.

Schedules for BIR will be added as I get the dates.

I'll not be polictally correct so Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Stay safe and hope to see you in 2017.
