REGIONAL OFFICE: Absent
LOUD PEDAL: Absent
ROAD RACE: Kristen reported that our requested dates for 2019 have been turned into PIR for review. Notes: Pirelli Cup would like to have our April date. We might want to look at a Sept date instead of June next year. We also could entertain a co-event with NW Region in June. More to come on future dates.
SOLO II: Rio advised that their toy project for children in The Packwood area will be an ongoing project for them. They welcome donations from the other groups as well.
The next event for them is this weekend at Packwood.
RALLY: Jacob talked about their recent event which included a charity event to benefit a local cat shelter and wounded vets. They had hoped to raise substantially more than they did but the heat was a problem. They did raise over a $1,000 and will split the proceeds between the two groups.
This group is also trying to do a little fund raising to help the fire fighters that are battling fire along the roads normally used by The Oregon Trail Rally. Giving back to that community is their goal.
VINTAGE: Tim felt that The Rose Cup provided lots of racing and more people than usual. They encountered a pre incident regarding sound but resolved the issue.
DIRECTOR I: Aaron thought Rose Cup went well except for the awards being done too quickly. As a winner, getting thru the crowd to the podium was difficult.
Aaron suggested that we get bios from the workers and have them in The LP. Mary mentioned that that had been done before and was a popular thing. Kristen agreed that this would be good to do.
DIRECTOR II: Allie showed some samples that the end of year awards committee is looking at. She also relayed that they have secured some door prizes to give out at our end of year picnic on Saturday night. Rio offered 4 Solo Entries and Kristen and HP session.
She also advised that she has been talking to some of the workers about their feelings.
In general, they do not feel that they are getting enough recognition for their efforts.
The lack of ice and poor food at Rose Cups was another issue they brought to her.
PAST REGIONAL EXEC: Absent
ASST: REGIONAL EXE: Absent
REGIONAL EXEC: Tim addressed the fact that there is a conflict with our Teen Street Survivor date. Solo, who provides many instructors has an event that same weekend.
Kristen will work with E.C. to secure another date, suggested were, Oct 7 & Nov 4. She also suggested that we try to correlate all events next year so as not to have these conflicts. Maybe we could work with Karen on all of the other groups and their events.
