MINIOTA DEVIL'S DROP


Here comes the Devil’s Drop in Miniota!  This weekend, June 9 & 10, Wheat City Cycle is pulling double duty this weekend as the race sponsor as well as the community meal sponsor.  That means that we can expect Mike to come out and school us in Vet B on his KTM and we will have oranges for dinner on Saturday.  KTM’s are orange – get it?  Or blueberry cheesecake for the Yamahas, green grapes for Arctic Cat?


Item for the checklist – get better writers for our race announcements – check!


This weekend is the third race of the Chudd’s Powersports 2018 Manitoba Cup and marks the end of the first half of the season.  Whaaaaat?  Half over already?!?!?  We should have a half-time show to celebrate!


Paul Swiskoski and his group of talented volunteers were able to mark and cut trail in pouring rain and then blazing sun (yep, on the same weekend – gotta love our weather) and the track is super good.  Not just good – super good.  It’s ready for the double header we have planned.


The long-range forecast is warm so we will have even more GWB Auto water on hand.  We won’t run out again – promise.


The Blaines will be there with their canteen so don’t worry about food, there will be lots there.


Back to the food. please join us for the community meal on Saturday and bring a salad, side dish or desert in case we run out of oranges and blueberries.


For the newbies (welcome newbies), here’s the plan:
