Hi folks. Due to the overwhelming support for the Scramble on the 18th of May, we are changing the 1 shotgun format to 2 shotguns. The first shotgun will start at 8:30 AM est. and the second shotgun will be at 1:30 PM est. By doing this, hopefully everyone will get a ride cart and this change will allow more people to participate.
