Wednesday Night Fleet Racing Series

The Dallas Laser Fleet conducts a Wednesday Night Laser Racing Series starting in April and ending in October.   All ages, levels and Laser configurations are welcome.  The racing is usually segregated into 8-10 week mini-series.  The racing is scored.  The first gun is 6:30PM sharp.

For the 2013 season, there are three (3) scored series over the Wednesday nights starting April 10 and ending October 9, 2013.  The inclusive dates of the three series are as follows:

Series I             April 10  – June 5

Racers typically meet at the CSC clubhouse after the racing to swap stories.  Food is periodically provided by the Fleet.

Each Fleet member is responsible for working on the Racing Committee.  A schedule will be posted on the forum calendar.  Members are responsible for finding a substitute should they be unable to work their assigned dates.  Questions should be directed to the Executive Race Committee at ERC@dallaslaserfleet.org
