The New Track Nearing Completion. The Coming Tournament
The track will be one of the finest in the State. It will be a quarter-mile track with a radius of 100 feet. The turns will be banked five feet. The surface of the track will be of pulverized slate rock. A grand stand, with a seating capacity of 2500, is to be erected at a cost of about $500. The track will cost $800.
The inaugural races are to be held on Admission Day. In the forenoon there will be a parade and the exercises will be held in the afternoon. All clubs except Los Angeles will be represented. Over $200 will be offered for prizes and there will be from six to nine events. One of the principle events will be a safety race between State "crack" men. There will also be an athletic exhibition, the entries to be opened on the ground.
In the evening a ball will be given at the St. James Hotel.
The club took a run to Los Gatos Friday night.
