Aiken Steeplechase

Fellow MMC members,

You are all invited to join me at the Aiken Steeplechase event on March 25th, to share my rail spot, #471. The space can accommodate 2 large vehicles, and many people. One vehicle space is already taken, so one large MMC vehicle with all the gear can take the 2nd space.

Entrance tickets are $25/person in advance, $40 at the gate, and Polo Field Parking is $20 in advance, $30 at the gate. I strongly recommend carpooling, not only for the cost savings, but also for the savings in aggravation of sitting in long traffic lines.

Advance tickets may be purchased at the following locations: AikenDrug Company, Aiken Saddlery & Supply, Birds & Butterflies, Floyd & Green, Lominick Pharmacy, Parks Pharmacy, Plum Pudding, Ridgecrest Coffee Bar, Southern Bank & Trust (3 locations), Smithers Insurance (2623 Washington Road, Augusta), Unique Expressions, USC Aiken, H. Odell Weeks Recreation Center, Aiken County Visitor’s Center (Holley Building).

I’ve attached a map that shows how to navigate to the rail spot, # 471, once you are inside the track. Please note that the MMC vehicle must enter the track through the Blue Gate, and that traffic will only be allowed on Powderhouse Road going in the Southbound direction, coming out from downtown. You will not be allowed to drive past the entrance to the Polo Field parking going northbound on Powderhouse from Pine Log Road. Pedestrians may enter the Field from any gate.

The gates open at 9:00 AM, Post Time is 1:00 PM, but you must plan to arrive no later than 11:00 AM to avoid the insane traffic congestion, and earlier is better.

Dennis & Karol Mason have agreed to coordinate attendees, since I am covered up with preparations for the event. Brian & Donna will attend but will be out of town this week so please contact Dennis or Karol to coordinate.

Please let Dennis/Karol know how many in your party are coming, and if you need space in the MMC vehicle for stuff. I will have a 10 x 10 canopy and (2) 6′ tables already setup, but the space will accommodate 2 more tables if need be. Please note that nothing larger than a 10 x 10 canopy is allowed.

Hope to see you there.
