So the practice tomorrow morning at 8:45 am will be a SL practice.

Also if you are trying to register for the race on the SARA site there seems to be only one link to the registration site and it is the one in some text on the home page. The link is the word “Registration” in the text in black font. Click on that and you can register. It is the only live link to registration on the site
