The banquet will be held in Lawrence, KS. It will be at the Douglas County Fairgrounds building 21. The address is 2110 Harper Street. The doors open at 4:00 PM. The first hour will just be setting up and visiting. We will start the food line at 5:00 or so. When you come in, please fill out a nametag so everyone can put a face with a name. You could include your screen name and last years rider number as well.

 

There will be a garage sale and pay it forward area. Bring stuff you want to sell or give away. For sale stuff should be marked with a price and your name.

 


Banquet dinner:

 

This will be a potluck style event where everyone brings their favorite dish. FMHSC does not do this to be cheap. We feel that this helps create a family reunion atmosphere and that is exactly how it should be. Soft drinks, tea, and water will be provided. There is a full kitchen available to us and several outlets near the serving tables.

 


When the dinner is complete, we will present the year-end awards. If you are receiving an award and don't plan to attend, make arrangements for someone to pick up your award.  I do NOT want to haul them around all year waiting for someone to pick them up. 

 

Finally, we will have an auction style giveaway of items donated by series supporting bike shops. Riders will be given play money based on the number of events ridden. Riders will use that money to bid for merchandise. This is a lot of fun and there are some great items available.

 

Throughout the evening it will be possible to obtain your season number for next year and purchase a transponder if needed. New transponders will be available at a cost of $10.00 each. This is the best time to fill out your 2018 entry card for the year.  Do this even if you don’t plan to pre-enter or even ride the first race.  Warm pens and warm hands write so much better!

 

Pre entry for Milford Lake will also be available. Do everyone a favor and sign up in advance. The first race of the year is difficult for everyone and this will make things a lot easier. In the past I have only had about 50 people take advantage of this and there have been 170 riders or more at the actual race. If you dont make it, the money will be applied to the next event or returned.

 

I would like to have several dedicated helpers to help after the event.  These people will help coordinate putting away the tables and chairs. They are color coded and usually there are 20 or more people helping with this so it has to be managed to get all the tables in the correct stacks and correct storage units.  The chairs have the same issues as they are not all the same.  I then have to completely clean all bathrooms, kitchen, and sweep all the floors to get the deposit back.  I usually forget to ask for help and my boys and I are doing this long after the event is over.

 


Directions: From the east: 10 Highway to the 23rd Street exit then west about two miles to Harper Street (2nd stop light). North three blocks. The fairgrounds are on the east side, we are in building 21.

 

From the West: Exit I70 at #197 and take Highway 10 bypass to Haskell Ave. exit.  Go north to 23rd Street then east approx. 1/2 mile to Harper Street then north three blocks.

 

 

Written directions are the best.  Google Maps tries to bring you in a back way that no longer exists after the recent work at the fairgrounds.  Just make sure your program is bringing you in from Harper Street.
