Vintage + Vet

Vintage + Vet “Old School Reunion” | CANCELLED

UPDATE  |  Thursday, February 22

March 10-11 at Swan is CANCELLED

Don’t remember ever personally rescheduling a reschedule, but I reckon there’s a first time for everything. Or we may have to just punt.

Well folks, as some of you well know, it’s always difficult to find a non-conflicting race date. After checking both the TVRC site and AHRMA site, we didn’t see any conflict, however after digging deeper into the AHRMA site we see our mistake! Pretty ridiculous oversight by us, but it happened!

For many years now when a Swan event would be forced to reschedule we would not add an additional new date on the calendar, instead we would just move it to our already planned next race date and make it a double-header weekend! This way we would keep from getting on top of someone else’s already scheduled event! Well, this time we tried to squeeze it into the calendar, but mistakenly overlooked another vintage event! I think Texas must now have 200 tracks and 199 riders!

Our next musical chairs move is up in the air for now!

“You may make your plans, but God directs your actions.” Proverbs 16:9.

UPDATE  |  Wednesday, February 21
RACE RESCHEDULED TO MARCH 10-11
 .
In 32 years at Swan, we have seen at least four things that will never change: there is always another newest best track owner, the whole truth is real hard to find in most of our society, race tracks come and they go, and the weather is always unpredictable!
.
In light of a newly conflicting date, and with both the vintage and vet rider groups being small, we have made the decision to move our March 3-4 races to hopefully better serve these two groups! Our race calendar has been public since December 18, 2017!
.
Round 1 of the Moto Masters and our Swan Vintage + Vet “Old School Reunion” has now been moved to MARCH 10-11! This will allow both of these groups to attend both track’s events!
