Changes are underway at GCKI. We are working hard to streamline the membership registration and renewal process. The www.racekarts.com website has been updated to allow new members to register online. This speeds the process and reduces the time GCKI volunteers spend entering the membership data into the database and time to process payments.

 

So what is different? New members can process their membership online and pay membership using Paypal. Paypal lets you use a credit card or paypal account. Good news, by using Paypal, GCKI does not get involved in handling credit card data. For those who absolutely refuse to use the online system, you can still download and print the paper version of the application form, fill it out, enclose a check and send it to the address on the form. We will not process credit card numbers through the paper forms anymore so you will be limited to checks by mail. Please note, mailed forms will add a minimum of 1 week additional processing time to receiving your membership.

 

Renewing members will receive an email notice alerting an expiring member of the need to renew. The email will provide two options for renewal and this will make it very easy for everyone to renew. We are discontinuing all snail mail renewal notices so be sure to keep us current with your latest email address.  You can signup for the GCKI emails and membership renewal notices on the "GCKI Newsletter Signup" module on the GCKI website (in the right hand column), you can also use that signup module to change your email address, or just email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will do it for you.

 

Membership cards: All members will receive new cards in the mail within the next few days, they were mailed out on Thursday February 20th. These new Membership cards will also change for the first time in 40 years! We will no longer be hand laminating the cards. We bought a card printer that allows us to print a professional looking card for all master and associate members 16 years and older. The card will have membership data on both sides and will also include helpful contact information etc. New cards will be coming to all members of record February 1st. Watch for this new card because the gate combination will be changing effective Feb 23rd.

 

Another change in the works....In these membership packets, we will include two kart tags that include the master member information.  These cards will be stamped by the tech inspector on race days when the member submits a signed tech form for the kart.  This tech tag will be valid for the race season. Additional member and non member kart bands will be available on race days but all karts racing on track on race days will be required to have a tech band prior to entering the track.

 

Included in the letter with your new membership cards and kart tags are three GCKI glossy brochures. We are asking members to hand out the brochures to friends, work colleagues and neighbors that you think may be interested in karting and becoming members of GCKI. More members means more fun with more racers and more money to put into improvements at our track. Please let us know if you need more brochures and we will gladly provide them. There will also be some available at the track if you would like to pick up some extras on race day.

 

We look forward to seeing everyone soon at the track and will be on hand on race days to help you with these changes.

kart_1aGulf Coast Karters welcomes and encourages members and non-members to volunteer to help run our kart racing events.  You don't have to race to be involved in kart racing at Gulf Coast Karters.  You can be a Corner Worker, Grid Marshall or work the Concessions Stand on race day and get paid for your service to GCKI.  You don't have to be a member to serve as a race worker. Come and join in the action! Sign up to work in the Worker Forum Thread.
