Minto, ND (Nov. 27, 2008) – Last season, U.S.C.C. received several membership inquiries from racers who are also active members of our Armed Forces. Because of there obligation to the military, they were trying to decide whether or not it would be wise to purchase a U.S.C.C. season membership. As a way to help them out, U.S.C.C. made special arrangements with these racers on a case-by-case basis.
“This season all active military personnel will receive their U.S.C.C. season membership free of charge,” said Pat Mach, U.S.C.C. President. “There was uncertainty with them as to whether or not they would be able to compete at the events they had planned on attending due to the concern of their military obligations. This way they can lock in their race number and all the benefits that come with a season membership without having to wonder if they will be able to fully utilize their investment.”
“In my opinion, I consider rewarding our racing military members with a free membership is the least we can do as an organization,” Mach said. “These men and women, along with their families, are making extraordinary sacrifices so that we may continue to enjoy all the benefits of the freedom they work so hard to protect. So, to all our military members, I say “Thank You”. Good luck this season and I hope to see you often!”
USCC’s first race, “The Gonvick 100” is scheduled for December 20, 2008 at Gonvick, MN.
