Crystal Park and Rec fund raising program clarification #fb

February 22nd, 2011

Just to let you know, if Bassett Creek had no damage to the park we would not be running this fund raiser.

The stolen generator did affect our donation to the park, but we are not using this fund raiser to pay back the expense of the lost generator.

All proceeds from this fund raiser are going directly to the City of Crystal for their youth program as well as to offset the expense to repair damage to Bassett Creek Park.

A stolen generator would not affect our access to this great racing venue and we don’t want to portray this fund raiser as such.

Thanks for your donations to Crystal Park and Rec!

For those not aware, Minnesota Championship Cyclocross Racing has been using the State Championship Cyclocross race as a means of fund raising for the City of Crystal Park and Recreation Youth programs. Due to our annual donations to the City of Crystal they have been very generous in allowing us to use the Bassett Creek Park for racing. The 2010 state championship race weekend was greatly affected by the first winter storm of the season. The weather suppressed participant turn out and also created the conditions that caused a great deal of damage to the park grounds. Our donation to the City of Crystal ended up being much lower than was hoped for. We are asking for your help in making up the difference! Please contribute what you can to assure that cyclocross racing can continue at Bassett Creek and that the City of Crystal is able to continue to offer great programs for the children of their city. Any amount would be great! We really appreciate your help and consideration!
