Yes!!!! You read that right. After more than a year of virtual and outdoor events, we are now ready to resume in-person events indoors at Circuit Launch.
Woo hoo!! 🥳
10am - 5pm, Saturday May 22 2021
There will be racing in both the indoor and outdoor tracks and BBQ will be served next to the outdoor track.
And if we're lucky, Alex will make Caipirinhas.
Please register so we can make sure there is enough steak!
SPECIAL NOTICE: COVID-19 + Vaccination
This is our first indoor event since the pandemic and as you can appreciate, we want everyone attending to feel as comfortable as possible. We are assuming that everyone over 16 attending will be fully vaccinated.
In compliance with Alameda County we will require masks at all times and hand-sanitizer will be available at the door. There will be no eating indoors, just outside near the outdoor track.
We are also capping indoor attendance at 150 people. Please do not attend if you have traveled internationally in the previous 2 weeks, even if you're vaccinated.
We really appreciate your consideration! Thank you!
It's been wayyyyyy too long and it's time to get building again!
