    And, should they not listen or vote against us, let's make damned sure to get out and vote against them! Let's make that an issue and a promise!

    Dear Alderman _______,

    It is with respect that I ask you to please consider voting with some of you colleagues in favor of extending the lease of Race City Speedway. The loss of such a facility in the Calgary area will be truly immense. I firmly believe that the closure of Race City will create a new wave of street racing on Calgary roads. Race City provides a safe and supportive environment for our youth to further their passion for automotive racing. People from all ages, and walks of life come together each weekend at Race City. We must continue to keep Calgary a vibrant destination and ensure we always have an automotive racing facility.

    Thank you for your time,

    1997 GSR

    The guy (can't remember name right now) for the Westhills/Westside rec centre is a guy who supports race city and is the one who has been lobbying to get the lease extended, so try not to load his inbox, as he's on our side.

    McIvor is the alderman who's been lobbying for Race City to stay (I think he is in the SE .actuallY - which would make sense ????).

    Also sent an email to Dale Hodges (my alderman).

    At the Calgary Sports Car Club forum we've been discussing maybe getting together on the weekend at the City Hall steps or across the street at the Olympic Plaza as a show of support for Race City ... maybe have a few speeches - whatever. Anyone in for that?

    got this reply

    "Thanks for taking the time to write - the office received a lot of letters on this - Bob is aware of the support in Ward 4 for the venue . There does appear to be some support to extend the lease - I'll pass along your comments.

    Dear Alderman Joe Ceci,

    It is with respect that I ask you to please consider voting with some of you colleagues in favor of extending the lease of Race City Speedway. The loss of such a facility in the Calgary area will be truly immense. I firmly believe that the closure of Race City will create a new wave of street racing on Calgary roads. Race City provides a safe and supportive environment for our youth to further their passion for automotive racing. People from all ages, and walks of life come together each weekend at Race City. We must continue to keep Calgary a vibrant destination and ensure we always have an automotive racing facility.

    As I have used the facility in the past to further my love of my car and motorcycle, I understand first hand how much of a loss this place would be to the city. My only concern about keeping it open is the state of repair the management would be required to keep. If Race City management knows they will not be keeping the facility for a long period of time they will be less likely to invest money into its maintenance, therefore causing less people to use it, causing it to appear that a race track is not required in this city.

    Thank you for your time,

    Brendan

    I got the following this morning.

    Good morning Greg!

    Thank you for taking the time to write and share you support for Race City.

    Alderman Diane is also supportive of Race City and that the City of Calgary uphold their lease agreement with them.

    Kindest regards,

    Kelly

    Ward 13 supports it, thats good...

    Response from Ward 14:

    Thank you for your recent email to Alderman Fox-Mellway regarding Race City Speedway. This item comes before Council on Monday, January 26, your comments have been given to the Alderman and duly noted for our records. At this time, It would be premature for the Alderman to comment, since she has not received for review the Report and its recommendations.

    Again, thank you for taking the time to share your views with Alderman Fox-Mellway.

    hmmmm. Sounds like she can be swayed
