ROAD RACE: Road Racing Report: Racing Operations Manager, Bob Smethers joined us for the meeting to discuss the need to sell the 1992 Ford Dually since we replaced it with a different safety truck. First we will spread the word in the community then look for options of listing it for sale on the internet.
Bob also wanted to understand the PIR policy regarding using a personal vehicle. The topic was brought up lately due to the new Holmatro Tool and authorized vehicles it can be housed on. Kristen informed Bob that personal vehicle can be used during a race weekend (just as it has been in the past) with the exception of the Holmatro Tool since it is owned by FOPIR. The Holmotro Tool must be mounted onto an Oregon Region SCCA safety truck that responds to on-track incidents. The “new” safety truck will be equipped with approved brackets to hold the Holmatro Tool for the next Oregon Region SCCA Road Racing event. The BOD would like to see our E Crew Chief Ken Killam return for the August and September events.
SOLO: The Starting Line event on Saturday had low attendance. The Women in Racing event on Sunday was run very well. Goal with the participants was to have them relax. The environment was very laid back and the day ended with many happy customers!
Thanks to National for inviting Solo to the Sunday lunch with Time Trials.
RALLY: Jacob and group are working on getting a permit in Clark County for a new location. Still in search of new locations. They are interested in running an event at PIR.
VINTAGE: No report
DIRECTOR I: No report
DIRECTOR II: Bernadette reported on the Women in Racing event that she was in charge of running. She was very happy with the results of the event and thinks that a number of the women will come back.
PAST REGIONAL EXEC: No report
ASST: REGIONAL EXEC: Absent
REGIONAL EXEC: Tim reported that The National Time Trials event that was held on June 9th had attendance of approximately 62 participants. There were no incidents. The Saturday dinner party had excellent food but was poorly attended. National sent 8 people to run the event and did not end up using the help of our local crew.
The yearend party will be held on the Saturday of our Sept event. Sept 15th.
Looking for new ideas for giveaways, share if you have any.
ADJOURN 8:15 M/S ( Kristen/Tim) M/P
