See below the notice from The Wick 338.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL PARENTS OF MINORS

Effective immediately per order of our insurance company, any minor riding an open practice, taking a motocross class or racing at The Wick 338 must have the Minor Release signed and notarized by both parents! We know this is a huge inconvenience and we wish we didn’t have to enforce it but our hands are tied, we have no choice.

If both parents are present at the track they may sign THE FORM in the presence of a track official who will have to check IDs.

If one parent will not be able to make it to the track they must sign and have the form notarized and then the other parent can bring it with them to the track where they can sign it in front of a track official who will have to check an ID.

There is a box to initial for sole guardians

When filling out the Minor Release enter a date range of March 27 until December 5th to be covered for the year. All parents who bring a release dated that way will be given a card stating that they have a release on file and will not have to bring a new one at every event.
We are sorry to have to do this and we thank you so much for your cooperation.

This DOES NOT eliminate the need for at least one of the parents or guardians to be present at sign up for the minor.

If your child will be attending and riding at an open practice, a motocross school or racing at The Wick 338 both parents must sign and have notarized the Guardian Form appointing a legal (over 18) guardian for the day.

All riders, please bring your cards to sign-up

Please bring your MSC card, your ID and your insurance card with you to sign-up. We hate to be requiring all this but the insurance companies are getting stricter and stricter with their rules, sorry for the hassle and thank you for understanding and helping out.
