There has been robust discussion regarding Monday PIR and prizes by
non-race affiliated individuals.
I think that it's great that people are offering prizes to women, but I
don't think that method is the best. Matt has taken time and energy into
putting together the race- and I echo everyone's sentiments and say- hats
off to you Matt!
We need to remember that we operate as a community. The sponsors, the
racers, the officials- all of us. We're a team and we should all operate
from a point of respect. Another great option would be to help support the
women's series rather than doing something that could negatively impact our
sense of community.
I also wanted to let everyone know we now have a steering committee that
will be helping guide women's racing- led by Stephanie Chase!
And I issue a challenge to everyone out there- match the prizes and donate
to the women's series!
