NEWS & UPDATEs
Sun 6/2 - PRE-REG DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL 4PM TODAY!
To help alleviate the workload of our registration staff tomorrow, **we have extended the deadline for online registration until 4pm today**, so you have still time to pre-register online for the series - or just for tomorrow's race - and save time and money at the race. And like the the close to 200 racers who already a purchased a series pass, your name will get added to the weekly call-up list!
Once you are registered online, all you have to do tomorrow is come pick up your race plate (and racer glass) at the Info Desk (located next to registration) and you are all set to race!
Wed 05/29 - Pre-Series Race Plate Pick-Up, this Friday and Saturday!
Join us this Friday (from 5 to 8pm) at Hopworks Urban Brewery’s N Williams Pub & Beergarden or… on Saturday (from 9am to Noon) at Nossa Familia’s Central Eastside Café (at SE 3rd & Clay) to pick up your series race plate and - if you signed up for the whole series - your very own custom Portland Short Track racer glass!
And if you haven’t pre-registered yet, you will still be able to do so at the pre-reg rate (for the whole series or just for one or more single races) at either place, and save time and money on Monday!
Mon 05/27 - Check out the all-new Portland Short Track racer glass - fresh from the glassblower -, which will be all yours if you pre-register for the series by end of this week.
For our 15th anniversary, we decided to take a pass on the classic pint glasses and go for a svelte looking “glass can” design, featuring our updated series logo and silhouette graphic, all shiny and chrome.
Wed 05/01 - HEADS-UP: Our ever-popular Short Track Series Pass is now on sale through OBRA!
Series Pass holders will enjoy a weekly priority call-up* at the start of their category in the order they have registered and receive a FREE commemorative 15th anniversary racer glass.
* Starting at Race # 3, the top-5 riders in the series standings in each category will get a priority call-up, followed by call-ups for all series pass holders.
Mon 04/15 - VOLUNTEERS WANTED!
As always, we need a bunch of volunteers throughout the series to make the magic happen. If you are interested and available to help out with set-up, course marshaling, lap counting, registration, or clean-up - in exchange for a FREE SERIES PASS - just check out our all-new VOLUNTEER PAGE and fill out the form at the bottom.
Open volunteer slots will get filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, with preference going to folks who are able to volunteer at all or most of the races in the series.
Wed 04/03 - Get ready for the 15th edition of the Portland Short Track Series!
