Fall Race at Richmond International Speedway

Wor. David Layman passed this message on from Bro. Don Hansen:


Calling all race fans or those that wouldn’t mind volunteering for the ACCA Shriner Klowns,

It is time once again for the Fall Nascar Race at Richmond International Raceway. The ACCA Klowns Unit is once again reaching out to all those past and future volunteers that would like to participate in the Fall Race September 8, 2012 in Richmond. Each year ACCA Klowns assists with the many functions in several Temples and now it is time for us to step up to the plate and assist them during the race as Usher Volunteers during the Nascar Race.

Those that would like to assist need to let me know as soon as possible. There are approximately 50 positions that need to be filled. For those that attended the Spring Race, we had to endure the Cold Weather and rain but everyone stuck in there and did a great job. Traditionally, the Fall race is just the opposite Hot, a lot of sun and a very long day.

As a reminder, we need to be at the track by 11:30a and will volunteer until approximately 10p that night. Shriners and Non-Shriners are welcome to work as long as they are at least 18y/o. We need to wear Khaki pants, comfortable shoes and don’t forget the Sun Screen, a hat, ear and eye protection, and a chair. Usher shirts will be issued to all those assisting unless you have one already and can bring that one with you. You are also allowed a small cooler for non-alcoholic beverages (plenty of water is recommended). I will be receive the Usher passes around the 20th of August. Remember the Usher passes are good for the races the night before and the day of the Nascar race. You only have to work the Nascar Race, the others are free and on your own as a race fan.

Look forward to hearing from you very soon so we can fill the required spaces and help ACCA Shriners with their fund-raiser for the Shriners Children’s Hospital. Pass this message along and invite as many friends as possible that you feel would do a good job for the ACCA Klowns.     September 7, 2012 is the  that you can attend free as a fan and September 8, 2012 is the   that we volunteer from Noon to 10p
