Pro Solo Recap – Everything went reasonably well. There were no major issues. The National staff seemed pleased with the event. The Friday night party went well, although we could have portioned the food out better so it lasted longer. It was nice of Taco Time to provide the salmon, thank you! The last person on site left around , so that was great.
Evolution Schools – 84 total students over three days. The biggest phase 1 ever held with 24 students on Tuesday. This meant it was also the first time for needing 6 instructors. Eric Clements and Brian Peters were new additions to the instructor team. Lunches were purchased from the grocery store. Quality and amount were good and students were happy. Keith has sent off the request for the payment, so we should be receiving the funds soon.
WWSCC Report – Total
of 42 entrants at the BEAC Enduro held last weekend at
NORPAC Divisional Steward Report – Small group of people attended the Helena Divisional event. The course was much slower and within rules specifications this year. Some people were concerned about going off course due to a very thin access road and 90 degrees corners. A total of 60 people attended. 5 100 second runs each day. The banquet was very good and the people were extremely hospitable. The Vail NT had 180 entrants and was a successful event, although those in attendance from the NW region probably wouldn’t go back to that site again. Theoretically, at Nationals this year, there will be some type of award given out for the Division that has the highest level of attendance. We need to make sure that all NWR members have stickers on their cars. Deadline for registering for Nationals before the late fee applies is on Friday.
2010 Schedule – Howard approached Dick and ask if we could commit to NT and Pro Solo dates for next year asap because they would like to announce all the events in Lincoln at Nationals this year. The only requirement is having the Pro Solo the first weekend of the pair. We are looking at holding them a little bit later in the season around the last weekend of July and the first weekend of August.
Event #7 (8/16) Packwood – Kimm and Shane Jensen. This is the first time that Shane, Kimm or Peter have been event chairs. Kimm would like to remind the group that the Event Chair Checklist is completely out of date and is absolutely NO help to anyone. It would also be nice to update the email addresses and names of the Specialty Chiefs. Kimm has volunteered to work with Joe, Gretchen and Dick to take care of this.
Youth Steward – In 2010 Glenn Austin is planning on bringing his children out to run karts. Glenn will begin working towards becoming a licensed Youth Steward.
Equipment Chair – We still need a person to volunteer for this position.
Year-end Inventory – Carol reminded the group that both PCA and OR SCCA used our equipment at the last events held in Packwood, so it might be important to check the inventory and make sure that everything we are supposed to have in the trailer is actually in the trailer.
Meeting adjourned at 9:20 p.m.
Maureen Bohrer Memorial - The group reconvened after adjourning to discuss a memorial for Maureen Bohrer. After a very short discussion, the group voted and approved a $500 donation to help fund an organization that was important to Maureen. Gretchen and Dick will try to do a little research, and quiz Bus to determine which organization would be most appropriate.
