Report – December was mostly play “catch up” with National office and
getting all of our outstanding invoices paid.
Lou Ann prepared a tentative budget for 2005 and asked that all present
review and make suggestions as soon as possible. Someone suggested increasing the fuel cost
for year since we will travel to Packwood more.

Report – We still need to purchase a spare tire for the van and
trailer. Tom LeCoque volunteered to help
with this since Jodi is no longer working with a tire company. He was not present but we will ask him at the
next meeting. Jodi was reminded that she
volunteered to purchase some five-mile radios, and she will take care of this
before the next event. Steve has
obtained 1000 feet of new cable.
Regional Trophies for 2005- Brent Vitolins
did a presentation regarding new trophies for 2005 regional trophies. He brought back several different ideas with
different design variations and trophy applications. He showed small individual trophies with
different Star Wars themes, and he also showed one larger plaque with smaller
sticker/or plaques that can be applied to the base according to you standings
for that day’s event. He will bring back
prices for one of each of the samples at the next meeting and a decision can be
Regional trophies were presented by Mike, Kevin and Gretchen. Everyone approved of the clothing
selected. Door prizes are being
collected. Kevin would be interested in
any contacts of people who may be able to donate something. Since we will not be selling tickets he
didn’t think it was necessary to get a whole bunch of stuff.
Corvette and High Performance Show – We are looking for a few volunteers to help man this
show on February 12 & 13. Jodi
suggested Val contact the Moffets.
– Several people from our region attended.
Lots of snow.
Very good event with well done seminars…
better than last year. Karen and Bud
both did excellent presentations, representing our region very well. Steve Johnson, Howard Duncan and all of the
Norpac directors were in attendance.
They are still working on trying to fix the current situation in Topeka and are trying
very hard to get it prepared by this year’s National, but it is more than
likely going to be 2006. The surface
will be racing asphalt. Kevin worked
very hard to convince this group of people to hold a Pro Solo in Packwood the
weekend before National Tour. Howard is
currently trying to determine how to increase the attendance of the Pro series
this season. They are thinking about
holding more secondary events that would not be counted in the points total for
the year to help with public relations.
