Pro Solo and National Tour Things are coming along on schedule for both of these events. Jerry and Gretchen have all of their Chiefs for the Pro, while Joel still has a couple of openings left for the NT. The Port-a-Potties, and dumpsters have been ordered thanks Joel! Gretchen made a request that Bud find out if the Merry Mountaineers are available and/or interested in covering the Welcome Party on Friday night for the Pro Solo. Alyson says there is also a Datsun person that is interested in donating and/or providing for the BBQ. Gretchen needs to connect with this person to get more specific details.
Evolution Schools Since Evolution is doing the registration themselves, things will be run a little differently this year. Nothing else has changed. There may be a slot available for a Safety Steward. Keith will let Gretchen know what the needs are and she will distribute this out to the Safety Stewards list.
Event #2 Dick apologized for his decision on changing the afternoon group to four runs rather than five runs for the morning. It was a long weekend, and he does realize that he may have been curt with his responses to people and a bit grouchy in how he presented his information.

Equipment Chair We still need a person to volunteer for this position.
Solo Bus It is currently at Bryant Motors having a few minor repairs. Dick discovered what was wrong with the turn signals, and can help expedite that process. It has had some suspension repairs done this week, but there is still a problem with the fuel sender. The parts for this are no longer available, so unless we can find a used one in a junk yard some where, we are going to have to deal with this by watching fuel purchases and mileage. The starter is currently working alright, but may need to be looked at in the future. Dick also went through his garage and found some tools that he added to bus for minor things that may need to be repaired.
Solo Bus Drivers Dick was very frustrated and disappointed that even though weve got several people on the drivers list, we cannot get volunteers to bring the Solo bus to our events. At the last event it took a Canadian member to get the bus to Packwood. Dick is going to try and address this before the next event, although Karl is going to be driving it to the next event.
New Timing System
In the process of Glenn contacting Race
2009 Supps/ X class Dick presented the two pages affected for the 2009 season (page 3 and 4). This includes the new non-championship indexed time only class. We need to come up with a class designation. A motion was made and approved to call this the I class. A motion was made and approved to remove the second and third sentence of 21 AWARDS. Since everyone must be a member to compete in one of our events, there is not need for this. 22 is also affected. A motion was made and approved to strike the last two sentences of this rule as well, for the same reasons.
Procedural Change for waivers SCCA membership band will be given to actual SCCA members, blue wrist bands are good for anywhere except in cars. Yellow wrist bands will be for no grid/no course areas. Joel is concerned that we are not doing enough to check to find out if people are wearing wristbands or not. Based on prior insurance experience, if we are not more vigilant about this, we may have no defense in case of a case in the future. A motion was made that all wrist bands must be worn on your wrist and present at all times. The motion was approved with a vote.
Entry Fees A motion was made to increase the entry fees $5 across the board effective May 24th. The motion was not seconded, so the motion died.
