MEMBER/NEW BUSINESS COMMENTS: Bob advised the need for licensing and service that is needed for our track vehicles, specifically E1 & E2.
There will be more T&S loops going into the track. Not sure where at his time.
There will be a Chiefs Meeting on March 18th at Mars Meadows.
Bob will no longer be able to secure the dinners for TNiA workers as his new job does not give him the flexibility to do so as in the past. A suggestion was made to give the workers $10 cash. This will be given to them when they sign in with registration in The Rose Cup Room prior to the start.
REGIONAL OFFICE: Karen spoke about the new web site that is up and running. On behalf of the region she suggested that Rally & Solo should contribute to its cost.
Dan responded to this in agreement but would like their page to not contain any advertising. Jeff agreed to that and suggested that if either group had any advertising specific to their specialty they could display that. It was agreed that Rally 7 Solo would contribute $20 to the web site costs.
Tire Rack Teen Street Survival is scheduled for March 12th. There are 40 signed up and 20 on the waiting list. This is always a well-attended event. Thanks to our SCCA Drivers who volunteer as instructors.
Karen also advised that the proposed Southern Oregon Chapter will not be happening at this time.
LOUD PEDAL: Jeff advised that we have been on line live for 1 month. Statistics show that we are seeing 100 unique visits per day.
He was grateful to Don Smethers who worked with him on the linkage for this.
Jeff suggested that we send our nomination to Ntl SCCA to have Monte Shelton put on the slate for inclusion to the SCCA Hall of Fame. Well-deserved honor.
ROAD RACE: Kristen advised that the new easy-up for Tech has been ordered. Heavy duty model with sides and shipping for $345.
She will be attending The PIR Users Meeting and will report next month on any information pertaining to set up times, camping, etc. that would concern our drivers or workers in 2017.
SOLO II: Dan relayed the info on The Tire Rack Starting Line event scheduled for March 18th at PIR.
Solo will be setting up the cones for the Teen Street Survival event.

He will get with Kristen & Karen to review the schedule and may duplicate 2016’s as it seemed to work well.
The drivers are getting younger every day! SCCA now licensing 14 year olds to compete.
Let’s all work together to make 2017 a great year for OR Region SCCA!!
