MEMBER/NEW BUSINESS COMMENTS:
LOUD PEDAL: Absent
ROAD RACE: Kristen felt that we had a very good Major event. The paddock being so overcrowded was the only hiccup that was not able to be readily fixed.
SOLO II: Rio presented a picture of the cones that he researched. The cost with The SCCA logo on them is $7.25 ea. These could be used by all of the groups as needed at their events. M/S (Kristen/Allie) to purchase 100 of these cones.
They held a Starting Line on Saturday and had 18 participants, all new faces as well.
Their next event will be the 23/24 in the south paddock.
Work continues on the planned, Women in Racing Day. This event will be sponsored by women owned businesses as well and will happen in August. A great chance for the ladies……workers, drivers wives etc. to experience life behind the wheel/
Rio said that a site in WA that they are interested in has the support of the town and are eager to have events there as the economy has really hurt the area. July 13th will be a Champ Tour there and Solo plans to take toys to the kids in the community.
RALLY: Jacob announced that they have found land in La Center that meets their requirements. The goal is to try to fill most weekends by sharing with other groups who need a location. More to come on this venture.
Rally’s treasurer will be doing their taxes going forward. Jacob asked if there was any information needed by the office. Karen (via text) will check but did not believe so. Jacob and Karen to follow up on this.
VINTAGE: No report
DIRECTOR I: Absent
DIRECTOR II: Allie advised that the awards committee is checking out awards and plan to implant some fun ideas into the venture.
PAST REGIONAL EXEC: Todd said that many have asked him why he thought the June event had such a low turnout. His thoughts were that there were just too many events in a short span of time in The NW and CA. We are not alone in this as the last event at Laguna had very low entries as well. Only so much time and $ to go around.
He hopes to have a report on Rose Cup by the next meeting.
ASST: REGIONAL EXE: Derrick is still communicating with The Grid Life promoters researching the possibility of an event at PIR.
REGIONAL EXEC: Tim praised Kristen for the great job that she did on The Majors. He was impressed with her handling of that big event.
He reported that we are looking forward to the upcoming June 8th TNiA to be a sell out as is usual for these events.
On the Saturday evening of Rose Cup a pot luck is being planned for all drivers.
There is a chance that some live music could entertain. Tim asked who he should check with on availability of logistics for this. Mary suggested that he talk to Sandy Bauer who is the promoter to get any information.
