me21: The date for the Carpet Open is the first weekend in April, the track will be announced at the Paved Oval Open, at Chatham R/C Speedway , September 5th. and posted afterwards.
The final date to submit bids was July 31st, 2004. No extensions. If no tracks bid, then ARCOR will "choose" (for lack of a better phrase), a track qualified to hold the race. Also as much as I would like to keep the date the same each year, occasionally this may have to be changed. BUT!! You will have adaquate notice if this should happen.
