2012 TrackChasers Week 49 Summary
(Weekly Listserve Update #102) With the first-ever race at the 1st Mariner Center in Baltimore, MD last weekend, eleven new track visits were added by the group, certainly a very high number for any weekend in December. All the new track visits were from the race in Baltimore. With the group members spread out over such a large area, it is always nice when such a large number of us can get to enjoy a new track and racing program together. See the weekly update below for the list of who added the track.
The following are welcome at any time for those that would like to improve the information on their personal track listing:
* Dates to listed tracks
* Modifications to the track names currently listed
* Information for the "Notes" column for each track visited
* Tracks for any of the various "Non TC Classified" categories that are outside of TrackChasers group
Information will be updated as soon as possible.
Ourcurrent 2012 total of new track visits has jumped to 595. That's not enough, we want more! Will we make it to 600 this year? We only need five more new track visits in the second half of Decmeber. I'd say it's looking good. I personally know of nine more new track visits that are still planned for 2012, among seven different TrackChasers. There are very likely even more planned. MikeKnappenberger has added the most new tracks so far this year, currently102.
