Open Campers Weekend

This weekend is your first chance to open up your campers for the 2023 season.  Campground will open Friday night, and will be open until Noon on Sunday, March 26th.  Per the RSI President, Mark Turner, there is still snow on the ground in the campground so the ground should still be wet and soggy.  If you do come to open up your camper, please park on the road to avoid getting stuck.  Unfortunately, this weekend may not be the best weekend to bring any new campers into the campground.  If you plan to do so, do so at your own risk.

Following weekend is MSS weekend.  It might be better to wait until that weekend during the downtime or the following weekend, which is the official WGI Opening Weekend on April 15th and 16th.  At this time RSI does not have any roles in working this event so it could be a great chance to open your camper hopefully with warmer weather.  Our first on track event which is NASA Northeast on April 21st-23rd.

Randy Berry 1957-2022

We are saddened to learn that this evening Randy Berry has passed away from his battle of cancer.  Randy has been part of the Race Services, Inc. family since the beginning of the organization 20+ years ago.  Randy started in F&C then joined Start/Finish and bounced around where needed.  Randy was an assistant flag chief, and for the last several years served as a member of the Board.  Randy was a friend, and a mentor to many.  He will be missed by all who have worked with him.

Randy Berry funeral information:

The family will be receiving friends and family on Wednesday, July 13th from 5pm-8pm with a small service to follow immediately afterwards.  The address is: Cedar Heights Brethren in Christ Church.  37 Cedar Heights, Mill Hall, PA 17751
