NOVEMBER 4th THROUGH 7th 7th ANNUAL SALINAS R 'AMBLERS AND ELKS CEREBRAL .P S AL Y BENEFIT RACES In 1962, the Salinas Ramble rs M. C. of Salinas , Cal. felt the desir e and need to be of some definite co mm unity service . It was the ir wish to a s s ociate wi th a sponsoring organization for the purpose of providing a c haritable use fo r th e p r oc eeds of their m otorcycle race s. The Salinas BP O Elks Lo dge No . 614 had the manpower and organization to sponsor s uch eve nts, an d firs t an d foremost, it ha d as i ts chari table goal the aiding of cereb ral palsied an d othe r physically handica ppe d c hildren. Under th s.c o-sponsorshtp of the Ramble rs and El ks, the fi rst races were held in the summer of 1962, at the Sheriff' s posse grounds in Salinas . The public r espons e was so great that plans were ma de i mmediate ly to move the races to the California Rodeo Gr ounds wi th a seating capaci ty of 20,000 people . The attendance a t thatfir steventwas approximately 1,500 and the ne t p roceeds were $2,200. Since that modest beginning, races have been held annually and tbe attendance has increased to approxi-. mateIY 10,000 and the ne t 'pr ofi ts to $11, 165. 47 In 1967. Six years of racing un der the co- spons or s hi p has r esulted in a total contribution of $33,832.20 for the benefit of cerebral palsied and other handi capped children. 100% of the net p r oceeds de r ived for the yearly one-day racing event go to this great cause. This year's r aces are scbeduled for Sun day, Augus t 25, 2968, a t the Californi a Rodeo Grounds on North MaIn Street in Salinas. The races will comme':!ce at 11:00 a.m, and in volve the participation of mo r e than 650 riders from all over Califor nia. T ime T r ials take place between 7: 30 to 10:3 0 a.m .
