.   

 We’d like to introduce a twist to our Saturday ‘beer can races’ called the ’12 Pack Series’.

One ‘beer can race' per month will appear on the club calendar as a ’12 Pack Series’.

It will have the same handicapped start but we’ll keep track of the monthly results.

1st Place = 1 point, 2nd Place = 2 points, 3rd Place = 3 points, all other participants = 4 points, all non-participants that month = 6 points.

Drop the three worst monthly finishes and the lowest total at year-end will be awarded a 12 pack of beer.
