RIVERSIDE MILITARY ACADEMY CHAMPIONS AND HEROES DELAYED
April 19, 2017
Motor Club Events, LLC with Riverside Military Academy, Inc. jointly make the following announcement:
Due to the unforeseen circumstance of the Atlanta, Georgia, Interstate-85 fire and subsequent elevated roadway collapse, the much anticipated Riverside Military Academy Champions and Heroes event has been delayed from its original dates. The closure of Interstate-85 until June 15, 2017 has created traffic at its worst and unbearable travel times to the extent that it is inappropriate to ask our event guests, sponsors, entrants, judges, spectators and event team to expose themselves to this unexpected difficulty. Our greatest hope is that you will feel we have made the correct strategic decision for the good of one and all.
More information will be forthcoming as plans are finalized for the new target dates of June 1, 2, and 3, 2018.

Jan's Tree is just before 10A on the left side or outside of the track. There is an access road to get to it.
As a background on Jan, he was responsible for getting many current members involved with the SOG in the early nineties. Jan would reach out to many SOG members and make them feel a part of SOG. He would engage you, encourage you, and connect you to others in a way that made SOG a highlight of several folks "car life." He enjoyed making friends and connecting them with hospitality, kind words, technical tips, concerned phone calls or help with whatever called for a friend. The SOG was lucky to have him.
