Promoting - Bethel Spring Series 2010

I'm going to ask folks to take a poll on Bethel 2010's "non-March" dates.

As you may have seen in a prior post, I'm trying to figure out what to do to fill in the normal 6 weeks of racing we plan for the Bethel Spring Series. With Battenkill taking up two weekends (one USAC, one UCI), a March with just four weekends, and an early April Easter Sunday, the calender suddenly seemed awfully short.

Therefore the question: when to hold 1 or 2 non-March Bethel Spring Series races?

Poll is at the Carpe Diem Racing site on the sidebar, open until October 30, 2009.

Poll is anonymous as far as I can tell - it's the first poll I've ever put up on a blog thing.

Comments are disabled on the CDR site so please comment here if necessary.

Hey Aki, Hope you are all healed and setting the wheels in motion for a decent winter of training.
Regarding Feb. 28; it is only one day earlier than the Mar. 1 start last year, so I don't see that being a problem. Additionally, the second week of Battenkill should be good for the Bethel Finale, as not too many racers will be making the trip up (possibly two weeks in a row) to see the pro race. Just my thoughts.

The Battenkill website lists April 10th as the USAC event date.

Doesn't matter much to me. We will be going to the temperature pay scale. $15 for every degree under 50 degrees on top of the usual fees!
