The Outlaw Grass Drags once again was a great success! The weather was great and between people visiting the booth to the participants at the Drags and Wood Chip Oval it was a great turnout.
Thanks to those that stopped at the booth to learn about KPI and to the kids that participated in the races. The Drags showed a great turnout of 37 kids and the Wood Chip Oval had 15! Again thanks to those that came out and we hope to see you on the ice this winter!

We are having a airbrush artist that will be airbrushing on hats and t-shirts this year. We did this a few years back and it was a huge hit, so come prepared!
There will be no KPI sponsored potluck on Saturday evening due to hotel policy, please plan accordingly.
