Possible summer/early autumn meet at Mirabel Airport

Post by lucky87 » Wed May 09, 2012 12:53 pm

Hello!
I originally posted on merkursport to see if there are any xrs in my area. but then i got the idea to maybe try and organize a small meet at mirabel airport/track in montreal sometime during the summer. Just sending a feeler out and i would definitely be interested. I just want to figure out what date would be good for people. so far as a vague figure i was thinking about mid august or early to mid september.

As you may have guessed, this isn't happening. Lack of interest so far/lack of merkurs. Maybe something else can be set up in the spring?
