Brotherhood at the Raceway to Host More Than 400
Northern California Scouts
SONOMA, Calif. (Aug. 25, 2015) – More than 400 Boy Scouts are expected to attend the Verizon IndyCar Series championship weekend at the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, Aug. 28-30, for a very special West Region centennial conclave.
The Scouts will enjoy one or two nights of camping in a reserved area of Sonoma Raceway, activity workshops, physical challenges, including a rock wall and obstacle course, a catapult competition, section officer elections and a Brotherhood Ceremony. This marks the first time Sonoma Raceway has ever hosted a Scouting event of this size.
The conclave concludes on Sunday, Aug. 30, as the Boy Scouts clean camp and head down from the campsite to the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma Verizon IndyCar Series finale. The scouts will enjoy 85 laps of high-speed, open-wheel action from their designated seating section in Turn 9.
The centennial conclave, also called Brotherhood at the Raceway, will feature Boy Scout troops from the Western 3N section of the Order of the Arrow, which includes most of Northern California and Nevada. Troops include Sacramento’s Golden Empire Council, Pleasant Hill’s Mount Diablo Silverado Council, Santa Rosa’s Redwood Empire Council, San Rafael’s Marin Council and Reno’s Nevada Area Council. The Scouts will range in age from eight to 20 years old.
Tickets are still available for the Verizon IndyCar Series season finale at the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, including the popular Total Access Package, which includes a Sunday reserved ticket, pit and pre-race access and garage pass all for $99. Kids 12-and-under are admitted FREE all weekend and parking is FREE. For more information, visit racesonoma.com/indycar or call 800-870-7223.
