    Default Payouts and Rainchecks

    The BPG Board of Directors has decided that payouts for the 2007 BPG Buick Horsepower Nationals race classes that were not run on Sunday due to the rainout will be carried over to the 2008 BPG event and paid in ADDITION to the 2008 payouts.

    Ticket Refunds - Anyone presenting a 2007 BPG Buick Horsepower Nationals race ticket stub for the Sunday rainout will be given a free race ticket at the 2008 BPG event. These tickets can be exchanged at the registration tent.

    S8/Q16 stickers - Anyone who purchased a S8/Q16 sticker for the 2007 BPG Buick Horsepower Nationals will be entitled to a free S8/Q16 sticker for 2008. The BPG has a list of those who did purchase the 2007 sticker. These stickers will be made available at the 2008 event.

    The Board of Directors wants to handle the unfortunate rainout in the best interests of our members and guests. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter. Thank you.

    That's great. Should we just save our Sunday stickers as a rain check?

    just saying that as a spectator I do not want or need a refund for a rained out event....just in case someone might bring that up as a question...

    i still have one from an atco rainout. i will never use.

    a lot of guys whine they spent money and it rained out. didnt get their moneys worth. in that case, the whiney's should volunteer their time so that the people that WORKED setting up these events get some easy time at the make-up event.

    I'm personally offended that the BOD couldn't see far enough into the future to set a date for the event that wouldn't get rained out in the first place.

    Nice going, guys.

    Why not plan it for the 3rd weekend in January. It NEVER snows on that weekend.

    just breaking some stones, guys... relax...

    I, like G Dave, will not redeem my unused ticket, and will, instead, consider it a donation to the club.
