June 2015 NASA-MA

NASA Mid-Atlantic
Dear NASA Mid Atlantic members: For 2015 only, we will be cancelling our traditional August Summit Point event.    It is a hard decision but the event is only two weeks prior to the NASA Eastern States Championships at VIR, an event that NASA MA is hosting.  We know there will be many drivers from around the country, and we want each and every one of them going home with smiles.  We feel in order to do this, our staff needs to focus on that event.  We are sorry for any inconvenience.   If anyone was planning on using the August Summit Point event to qualify for Nationals please contact Chris Cobetto to discuss options for the July VIR event.
Thanks and we will see you at VIR in July!!
Chris Cobetto
Director,  NASA Mid Atlantic Region
