i think you should do a one day. There will be a better turn out with a Sunday only gig. The rider count will probably even be down for most from last yea since I am sure I am not the only one broke. I am hoping they voted to drop or add more stagger classes and we have plenty of day light that time of year for a long day anyhoo. Not to mention the track will hold up better for a one day at this point until the water system is 100% cause it will be a dusty one more than likely with that time of year and I wouldnt risk the HCMA cancelling the second day or something cause of dust or who knows what. My advice would be one day. later vessie
Split day will save you guys an hour or so of driving time but will create another days work for dairyland. Marvs, better go for the one day event, better turnout and we'll be able to dump mass amounts of water on the track for the late summer heat. Remember we drive a minimum 4 hrs to the rest of the hcma tracks. Dairyland is open all spring and summer for practice.

Great Falls race was June 12th and 13th, 2011. Farmers Almanac.com says the temperature was 64 degrees on the 12th and 73 degrees on the 13th. I have been around long enough to have raced both an entire season of split days and an entire season of one days.
Great Falls received mixed reviews on our one split day race. Half of the members want the laid back atmosphere of split days with a weekend camping feel, the other half want to race and get home. We couldn't possible please everyone...
The track is the one that has to make the decision, based on volunteers, weather, water, and money.Aasking the riders to decide will only cause you a 50/50 tie, in my opinion. The new board in Great Falls has elected to have a Saturday practice and the race on Sunday. Even in our meeting, it was not a unanimous decision. I'll support Dairyland either way.
