NWR Board Report (Gretchen Weidemann) - 800 members in NWR. John is working with an accountant on our tax status so something is happening on that issue. Race is working on a region wide schedule with the other race programs in the region. Track night in America seems to be running well for the national office not so much for local regions. Rally cross is not part of the NWR. Due to the NW rally association withdrawing their chapter. NW rally association is going to direct the Nationals at Dirtfish this year. Website is on the table again. Scotty has his webmaster looking into what he can do to help our region out on website development. Oregon did a time trials event and only had 4 people show to do it.

Gretchen stepping down as Solo Director in 2019, Tim is Stepping down too - Who is going to replace them? Gretchen is willing to help mentor someone, but they will not be continuing in their positions, so it is time for someone new to step up and help run our Solo program.
