I might as well post it here. Basically the Bethel Spring Series is done in Bethel. I hope to relocate the Series to another location.

It seems like New Britain would be amenable to 2 weeks there. I'd like to have 6 weeks total so that leaves 1-2 more venues with 2-4 days at each venue. I'm trying to find a venue or two and I'm looking for any ideas/suggestions. More info in the post linked below.

Unwritten things:
- New Britain may approve 2 weeks (not done at this point)
- Prefer CT locations, closer to Hartford, to present a package to a potential sponsor which includes a lot of volunteers

Written things:
- Close to highway
- Easy to close down
- Roads not really used on Sundays

Thanks for looking.

The base cost of Limerock is pretty steep, even if it includes EMTs. It's more than the two officers, the officials, and all my paid employees for a day at Bethel.

I'm trying to track down the contact for a couple locations. It's pretty tricky actually, the Missus helped me with one using her "forensic tax" skills.

I started thinking that maybe, with all these venues fresh in my mind, I could get races at more than just 1 or 2 of them, maybe more, like 4 new venues, and tie them together in some series. I look at each of these locations and I think "Hey, I want to race that too!".

Limerock would be an easy one to add I think, just the entries would be higher than the other venues.

New Britain seems more responsive so that's nice.

I also got info on two locations in NY. Depending on what time etc I have, there might be two races out of those.

Don't live within thousands of miles, but genuinely appreciate your efforts. Without folks like yourself that side of the sport doesn't exist. Good luck.
