Our route travels southwest from Colorado Springs along Hwy. 115 through Penrose and Florence to Canon City.

The August membership social will be held on Wednesday, August 21st at the Scott & Gretchen Long’s Ultimate Garage. Drinks will start at 6:00 PM and complimentary dinner will be served at 6:30. RSVP is required as space is limited to 60 people (no exceptions).
This month, AMR members will have an opportunity to support a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) project. “The Hanger” serves local teenagers who are living in foster care due to being victims of abuse, neglect or domestic violence. Most of these children leave their home with little or no warning, leaving their belongings behind. The Hanger provides a boutique-like shopping experience where they can choose their own clothes for school, work, or job interviews. In addition to shopping, the teens have the opportunity to help operate the store which provides them with valuable work experience. Many foster teens have no job experience, making it difficult to find employment when they turn 18 and age out of the system. While working in the store, teens go through the complete hiring and training process, and are mentored and coached by adult volunteers.
See MotorsportReg.com for registration and location details. Registration ends in 20 days on August 16, 2019 11:59 PM MDT
Just a reminder that all members are welcome to join us at the AMR Board Meetings. We would like to hear your ideas and suggestions on making our club better. Please RSVP with one of our board members before the meeting.
