2014 IMBCS Series

The 2014 IMBCS schedule is finished! We only have 6 races on the schedule this year, with the possibility of adding 2 or 3 more. Sycamore has some land use issues to iron out and Ida Grove is a little short on manpower. Stay tuned for more on the possible additions.

IMBCS #1 - 4/27 - Hampton, IL (5/10 or 5/11 rain date), more on this one later!
IMBCS #2 - 7/13 - Sunderbruch, Davenport, IA
IMBCS #3 - 8/17 - George Wyth, Cedar Falls, IA
IMBCS #4 - 8/24 - Sugarbottom, Iowa City, IA
IMBCS #5 - 9/20 - Sommerset SP, Indianola, IA
IMBCS #6 - 10/5 - Lake Ahquabi SP, Indianola, IA

That is the anemic at best schedule for this year, after years of 10+ venues things aren't looking good, and no Seven Oaks.

With that being said and a large gap in the schedule from April to July would there be any chance of Beverly/LAMBA being able to host a race again this year? Some time late May/early June. I know the race held there 2 years ago was well received by all the racers I have talked to saying the trails were great and the laps were perfect length for each class racing.

Great idea! LAMBA is in need of a Race Director to run this event!

Job Description: This individual will work to coordinate all aspects of the event, including volunteers and day of needs. The Race Director will facilitate a small group to help him or her coordinate various aspects of the event and will be sure to comply with all city and board expectations like insurance and waivers. The Race Director will report back to the board on a regular basis to inform the board of the event status.
Salary: You will do this for free!

If there are any interested parties or if you have questions about the position, you can message me or email LAMBA07@gmail.com. We have documents from the previous events that will help guide a future event, if needed.
