They saw the highest number of spectators in attendance at this event. There were tons of runs for everyone because the weather was beautiful all day. They had a brainstorming session and came up with a few ideas for contacting media outlets to create stronger buzz for the drift and SCCA program in general. BIG thank you goes out to Bob Forsberg, who rearranged his schedule and covered the entire event, since no one else was available. One of his goals for the winter will be to have two licensed safety stewards before the start of next season.
WWSCC Report – Two events Sportscar Spectacular and Miata cross have been held since the last meeting. There was decent attendance at each event, with an average of 100 entrants. The weather was gorgeous all weekend. A motion was made an approved to keep them both as championship events. The final two events are being held this weekend. Attendance is very light with only about 54 entrants for each event. The rules meeting will be held in November, so think about any changes you would like to present now and get them organized. Karl is resigning as President, and Kelley Picasso is also retiring as Treasurer, so there will be a couple of positions available. Coneheads January 23rd is a date that seems to be working with the city schedule, and also FX McCrory’s.
Steward Report – The Division Cup award for highest Division attendance at
Nationals has not been defined, so it has not been awarded. The Tri-ad award was won by six people this
year. All six of them came from the East Coast.
The Western Championship event will be held in Wendover next year, NOT
Vale, so this may help increase the participation on the West Coast side. Tentative dates for the 2010 NT and Pro Solos
series so far are -
Leftover Trophies – There are several trophies (glasses) leftover from the past couple of seasons. They have been offered to both Fordahl Motorsports and Jim’s Detail shop. Fordahl has expressed an interest, but we haven’t heard from Jim’s Detail.
Year-end Inventory – Kimm and Shane Jensen have already volunteered to be Equipment Chairs for 2010. They will be acquiring the bus sometime in November and will take a complete inventory. The drifting group also has equipment that will need to be included in the final inventory. Russell will check and send a list to Dick. It was also requested that they do a complete check on the radio inventory and report back to the committee at the December meeting to determine IF we need to purchase any new ones. The group felt this was mostly a “charging” problem due to lack of Equipment Chairs, rather than equipment failure, but a check should determine the extent of the problem.
Checklist Updates – Kimm Jensen has volunteered to update the Event Chair checklist. Jackie Kmetz is working on creating and/or updating the Specialty Chief job descriptions. Karl said that he has some materials that Mike created several years ago and he will forward this information to Jackie.
Rules Meeting - New Rules process will start in November. Please be prepared to present all new rule proposals at this meeting. All new proposals must be submitted in writing and you must bring 20 copies. Proposed rules and the rational. The final voting will take place in December. Based on discussions at the November meeting author may revise the rule, but NO NEW RULES will be accepted in December. The question was raised as to IF NS4 is becoming too large?
Nominations for Committee Chair - Jackie Kmetz was nominated by Dick Willy. The group seconded this decision.
Additional Chargers for Wireless Timing - Ron proposed that two additional chargers for the Wireless Timing system be purchased. The cost for each of the chargers is $87 plus shipping. The motion was voted on and passed. Glen Austin will contact the company and arrange the purchase.
Packwood - A suggestion was presented that we purchase a GOAT blower for
Packwood. This is an incredible piece of
equipment and works very well. The
Meeting adjourned at
