2020 Race Series and All Terrain Series

John Hackney has updated the CVR website for changes to the 2020 CVR/ORO Race Series and the new All Terrain Series. These items were approved by the club at the November meeting. There are some changes in the race makeup of the CVR/ORO series and a new set of awards was added.  There will be awards for the most points in each age group as in the past. Added this year will be awards to the six highest points-getters who did not win an age group award.  Also, check out the new All Terrain Series: no competition but instead run all five races and get a special shirt.
