KCA Finish Line Camera System

KCA Finish Line Camera Update
June 7, 2011
The new KCA finish line camera was tested last weekend at the Wichita Bicycle X-Change Crits. The test was a success. The KCA will continue to fine tune the system but it is available for future races. The camera must be operated by a trained KCA official. Many thanks to Matt Kassawara who researched and implemented the new system. Promoters, please contact Sherri Hahn with any questions re using the camera at your race. shahnsj@aol.com

Spring Fling Lodging

February 24, 2011

Message from Jim Whittaker, Promoter of Spring Fling Crit Series:

Everything went well today at Clinton lake. There will be low traffic there and the cabins aren’t rented for this weekend. They have one rental for all of March.

In the past I’ve found that motels were booked in the spring for races. Cyclists racing the Saturday fling and Sunday dam series should rent these cabins.

They are new, they sleep 6 and have a kitchen. And it’s on a race course and close to the Perry series. http://www.kdwp.state.ks.us/State-Parks/Locations/Clinton/Cabins

If they build 5 more for 2012 renting them to cyclists will really be helpful.

Spread the word please, especially to our Wichita friends.
