    Default HELP: SECURE A NEW SPOT FOR MCO AUTOCROSS

    Help us secure a new lot, but letting City Council know just how big the motorsport community is here in Ottawa.

    We haven't lost Lot 9, but we have no idea when we'll get access this year and having an alternative is always good, especially if we can announce a whole seaon's worth of events in March!

    I hope we can count on MR.

    Damn straight, we need all the help we can get on this. Process is dead simple too:

    1) Click your councillor link
    2) Add name/address to the bottom
    3) Send

    Even if you don't give 2 shits about AutoX, please send anyway. More autocrossers means more people moving up to the track. Everyone wins.

    Just one thing to add. If you all send the same form letter it will have an impact. BUT, if each person drafts their own version of it, and takes a few moments to draft their own version of the letter showing that each person takes the time and makes an effort to personalize it, it then has much more impact.

    The delimiter in the cc column is incorrect for some mail clients. Check that.

    Response:

    Unfortunately sending mass form letters before even applying to use the facility is a bad approach. While the activity is interesting and the support might be possible, getting mass emails preventing staff from helping residents on other issues cannot be rewarded.

    Autocross should have applied for the space before lobbying for support. Imo
