ROAD RACE: Absent Tim advised that Kristen is planning to run for the Road Race Director position on the ballot for 2019.
SOLO II: Absent
RALLY: Jacob reported that their efforts at the last event to contribute to two charities had better results than he previously thought.
They were able to provide $790 each to the two groups. The cat shelter was thrilled with plans already for their share and the wounded vet organization was planning a fishing trip for worthy veterans.
Jacob said the final outcome was aided by the fact that SCCA Ntl helps out with the sanction fee if it is for a charity.
The upcoming event this next weekend will undoubtedly result in a small loss. There is a conflict with the WA group on their event.
VINTAGE: Tim was happy to say that the triple had 14 cars entered and no incidents. They did have 2 over prepped cars to deal with.
DIRECTOR I: Aaron felt that the last TNiA went well and was happy to see that a couple of entrants came back on Sat and Sunday to the Time Trials,
He expressed that serving on the BOD has been a good experience for him. While he would have liked to achieve more he was satisfied with his service.
DIRECTOR II: Still working on the awards for the end of the year. They will be ready for the Nov annual meeting.
PAST REGIONAL EXEC: Absent
ASST: REGIONAL EXE: Derrick talked about efforts to a Grid Life type of event locally. Since this program is east coast run it is unlikely that they are prepared to come west anytime soon.
He said that SCCA is interested in doing one as a part of Time Trials. This would be a fun event and most likely bring in new people. We would need a draw to get them to the track, such as a band etc. with a name that will draw younger people in.
He will continue to pursue this project and work on ideas.
Tim said that he hopes we can resolve issues of conflicts such as Rally was facing in the future by getting together with like groups and create a calendar that will aid in selecting dates for events that will work for all involved.
The annual meeting plans are in process, since we had our picnic in lieu of a banquet this year, this meeting will be for awards etc., with the region not offering any food.
