My apologies for not updating this site as regularly as it should be. Your best be to keep up with what is going on would be to like us on Facebook.
One of those tough posts to make, but I think it has to be done. Had some concerns as I watched the program unfold last night and then had it brought to my attention by others today.
Our goal has always been to run a family friendly operation. We want parents comfortable in bringing their kids out to race with us. They are the future of the hobby and it is a great father/son activity. My son Jason, even though he is not much of an R/C fan today, still talks about the times we raced when he was 12 or 13.
Sundays have always been billed as a family day and have stayed that way. My concern is with Friday nights and something that I as the owner have turned a blind eye to and has gone too far. Friday nights have to be as family friendly as Sundays.
For that reason I am going to ask that there be no consumption of alcohol on the premises at BFG. I am not going to go out of my way to sniff it out, but if I see it or find an individual impaired to the point that it is affecting their driving/marshalling, I will be forced to address the situation. I understand that Friday night is a bit more of a mature/fun loving crowd but when I start to get complaints that indicate we may be driving people away because of the alcohol in the pits, on the driver's stand and on the track while marshalling, I have to address the situation. In addition I have a concern as a business owner in regards to liability for allowing the activity.
I hope everyone understands and that we continue to have the same great turnouts and racing that we have been experiencing the last several weeks.
