Solo Meeting Notes
Call to order at 7:07 pm by Gretchen Everett
No Treasurer report (absent)
Dan wants a Finance Committee meeting the week of 8/16. Has ideas he wants to discuss.
Changes will be brought to the Region Board for discussion/approval.
Tim Dutton submitted his 60 day notice (and didn’t renew his membership) as Editor of
Northwest Sports Car News
See attached report
Bud still needs some receipts for the National Tour so he can submit a bill to SCCA National
office (mainly from Brianne Green.)
77 entries at Open Practice
2nd McKamey School lost money
Pro Solo will make a reasonable profit
National Tour will lose money due to the party. Party will not be at the hotel next year!
(Gretchen will probably do party back at Hawthorn Suites.)
National Tour -
Bads - weather, kart fiasco, course too short
Goods - 8 sets of tires at party, good overlap on course
Parking lot layout needs more than one person to direct traffic, including Thursday evening.
Also, a map would be good.
Party meal was planned for “hot weather,” so some were disappointed. Some who showed
up late didn’t get much to eat.
Glen Hernandez will Chair next year’s Tour
Next year (2000) may be the last year we can have the event at Kent. Bremerton may be
the next best site if the Kent lot isn’t available.
Lots of cones hit, some broken cars.
Howard Duncan said he wants us to do another one next year. He liked our course, though
some didn’t (too tight.) Doug Hebenthal wasn’t too happy with Howard’s “course
tweaking.” Possibly a better known course designer might encourage some of the
high profile people to return.
We had a lot o regional support as entrants.
(Schools between Tour and Pro.)
Phase 1 - filled
Phase 2 - only 8 people
Probably lost about $200.
Swell event, outstanding surface - bring a weed wacker (per Karen Babb.)
