MEMBER/NEW BUSINESS COMMENTS: None
REGIONAL OFFICE: The regional office has received a check in the amount of $2,000 from FOPIR for our participation during the recent Grand Prix event.
Karen suggested that we establish a charity account for the region. This could provide a fund for such things as scholarships to TRSS and other worthy projects that would be tax deductible for the donors. The BOD was unanimous that this was a great idea and that we should move forward with it. Mary suggested that the region provide seed money to set this up and agreed that it should be managed as a separate account by Regional Admin, Karen.
The Auto Show was discussed and we will participate with Rio coordinating with Karen and others interested. PIR will establish the booth with FOPIR, Cascade and SCCA becoming part of it.
LOUD PEDAL: Absent
ROAD RACE: The Conference Race Steward contacted Kristen about a driver who displayed less than good sportsmanship in at PIR. There was discussion concerning this with reports from some fellow competitors on the BOD. The Operating Policies were reviewed as to any action that could be taken by Oregon Region. It was decided that we will wait to see if this person chooses to participate in 2019 at which time he will be closely monitored. If need be, the region will take action at that time.
We appreciated being informed by Conference of their concerns.
She was pleased that 2018 ended on a positive $ note! 2019 is falling into place.
The End of Year Award nominations were reviewed with discussion on those suggested. With many worthy drivers this is never an easy task.
SOLO II: The Solo Banquet will be held Nov 17th at Ernesto’s.
Rio advised that they are looking into using Motor Sports Reg in 2019.
RALLY: Jacob stated the difficulty in creating a calendar that helps all of the groups to plan events without overlap. There are so many events that have conflicting dates however, he will try to develop a reasonable and workable format.
DIRECTOR I: Aaron would like to be a part of being able to promote SCCA at the big events at PIR. He has ideas and is willing to share them.
DIRECTOR II: Absent
PAST REGIONAL EXEC: Todd voiced that E.C. was pleased with the symmetry that made 2018 a positive year. World Challenge was pleased and has signed up for two more years at PIR.
ASST: REGIONAL EXE: No report
REGIONAL EXEC: Tim will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting on Nov 6th at Busters BBQ. He has a business commitment out of town. He has asked Derrick to stand in for him.
