WWSCC Report – ACE held a Ladies practice that went well. Many women were in attendance and it was a great course. Big thanks went out to all of the males that help support the event. The Sportscar Spectacular will be held on September 26th. This is an event that is supported by all of different WW clubs. SCCA will need to choose a specialty category to be responsible for. BEAC Enduro is schedule for August 29th, and Miatacross is August 8th. A discussion was held regarding passengers for TO and fun runs. Apparently, this is not an insurance issue. A motion was made an approved to allow passengers in this situation, IF the entrant has registered in a TO class for the entire event. You cannot randomly decide that “this run” will be a TO. SCCA will agree with this motion with the following stipulations: to have a passenger you MUST have competed in at least three different events, meaning
Novices will NOT be allowed to take a passenger. SCCA has voted to accept the last BEAC event – Autopilot, for championship status. It was suggested that WW should spend some time to determine “run groups” for the entire year with each of the clubs following that schedule to allow for proper rotation of classes. US/OS was held last weekend. There was some discussion regarding the course design, but it seemed to run well in general. A vote was held and it was approved to accept the event for championship status. Fast Mike was recording sound levels on Saturday. Street Tire squeals are very loud. The loudest car was having some backfire issues and was recorded at 108.
Equipment Report – We need a spare wheel and tire for the bus and trailer. A motion was made a past meeting to make this purchase. Someone needs to call Jodi with all of the necessary information, size, lug pattern, etc. Kevin WILL take care of this. Two new timing light heads have been purchased from Point Source for half the amount of two JAC heads. Thanks Aaron and Denny!
We paid a total of $163.93, which we still owe to Denny LaPlante. He will produce an invoice for Lou Ann to pay.
A suggestion was made that we purchase a new adjuster, in case something happens to the one we have. A discussion was also held regarding putting the heads into a protective plastic box. Fast Mike has agreed to construct the plastic boxes that Val donated for this purpose. Aaron is concerned that someone be responsible for the timing equipment when it’s being used for Evolution School, so that we can be assured it is used and stored properly before being returned. Kevin will be teaching the school where our equipment will be used, so he will make sure that everything is okay. Kevin was reminded that if anyone hits the timing equipment, their name, number and address should be recorded and they should be informed that they WILL be responsible for repairing the equipment to complete running condition. A motion was made that we purchase additional reflector boxes since this seems to be the most fragile part of the
system. Steve Roberts has agreed to purchase these plus the additional adjuster. Thanks Steve!
Bremerton NT – Everything is pretty much done. Angela has made arrangements with Rally to cover the Road Kill Café for both days. The social for Saturday night is almost complete and she is making final arrangements for on-site port-a-potties. The Friday practice will be on Friday from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Fast Mike will be responsible for coordinating the event. He will be selling tickets from 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. with runs being completed by 3:00 p.m. There will be a limit of six tickets for each driver and NO tickets will be sold after 2:30 p.m. Angela has 20 trial memberships that will be available at registration on Friday night. A suggestion was made that we borrow and/or rent Dan Carchano’s blower from the racing group for NT clean up.
Packwood – We have received permission to use the Packwood site. Karl has a phone call into the site coordinator to arrange for a date this year and discuss the cost. Rather than pay an actual “site fee” we will need to donate a percentage of our event proceeds to the site’s designated charity that supports area loggers. Karl would like to hold a practice event to see how the site works before we make a decision to hold a National event there. After many discussions to determine when we could hold this event, a suggestion was made to table the discussion until the next meeting. Since we are in a “new” area, it will be important for us to really keep an eye on people who enter the day of the event. It was also recommended that we contact local hotels and make prior arrangements.
Event #6 (8/15) – Aaron needs a volunteer to help out with timing set-up since he is the Event chair for this event. Bud Bohrer has volunteered to drive the bus out to the site on Sunday and also home from Packwood IF we actually hold an event there on 8/14.
