National Tour – Things are moving along just fine, but he
has lost his Chief of Impound.
Typically, this spot is filled by the
Evolution Schools – Fair amount of people registered, but there are still a couple of spots open for Phase 1 on Tuesday. Several spots open in the challenge, and several spots open in Phase 2 later in the week. Dick Willy, Scott Miller and Mike Leuty will be our safety stewards. Amongst the three of them, they will need to work out a schedule of who will work on which days, and which classes they want to attend. Right now, they have Kevin Dietz and Ann & Andy Hollis as instructors.
Pro Solo – Everything is coming together nicely. All of the Chief positions have been filled. All equipment has been ordered, and the Friday night social is going to be a BBQ served on-site by the Merry Mountaineers. Jerry raised the question as to weather we wanted to order some additional cones for both the Pro and NT events. A motion was made and approved to authorize the purchase of 100 cones. A motion was made and approved to offer one entry to next year’s Pro Solo as a drawing prize for volunteers covering the Challenge, since this is a requirement of our region.
WWSCC Report – Two
events held by Torque Steerers club. Both great events with great courses, but
there was very low attendance. The
weather was fantastic. The events were
held at Sanderson Airfield in
NORPAC Divisional Steward Report – Not much to the last conference call. The SF Divisional will be held on June 27/28.
The site is rumored to be extremely gravelly but it is beautiful, right off of SF Bay.

Wrist Band requirements – As starter, Bud felt that there were several people who did not get the information regarding this new procedure. Event though Joel discussed this at each Driver’s Meeting, it will be extremely important that we continue announcing this new information and make sure that all “old time” racers are aware and practicing placing the wristband on their wrist in a visable area. It has been suggested that Grid workers should help organize this, more specifically the person who takes licenses in exchange for loaner helmets should be given this additional responsibility. Dick will contact the Chief of Grid and explain this to them. It was also suggested that Registration add an additional person just to handle weekend membership people, so we know the forms are filled out completely and accurately.
SCCA Event #4 – Great event! Thanks to Mike and Carol our event chairs! Things seemed to run smoothly and all involved enjoyed the weather and the Sunday night social at the Silver City Brewery.
Noise Rule – The question has been raised as to if we need to adopt a noise rule for Packwood. There are a couple of cars that come to mind, that may be distrupting the town. To complete this, we will need a volunteer to take on this task. Ron suggested that we look in the rule book because he remembers a section in the rule book addressing this type of situation that was created while he was on the SEB. Enrique has volunteered to look up this information, write up a report and present it to someone for next month’s meeting.
Event #5 (Packwood) – Enrique Garcia is the event chair. He had a few questions to go over. The main one being how is the Solo bus going to get down there. He will need to work with John and Laura (event chiefs for Pro Solo) to arrange this. We will have junior kart driver in attendance. His father is a qualified Youth Steward, and will be covering the position for this event.
Regional Pro Solo #2 – Laura and John Kimball are the event chairs. He is working with Chris to get a course designer.
