Report – Rule book is coming out.
SCCA plans to put an advertisement in the book. Dick W will hand Karen the needed
materials. Coneheads is coming up, to be
held at FX McRory’s.
The date is Feb 2nd.
WW had a rules meeting, and there’s one rule left to vote on. It deals with posting sheets and
completion. The posting of the scores must
be up to date and available for competitors.
There will be a 30 min limit that the sheets are available after the
completion of the runs. There is some
concern about delaying the event, and also specifics about how the postings are
accomplished. Dick W proposes to accept
the motion about the WW posting board rule.
Alan D seconds. 9 people voted
for it, 11 against. 4 slush events are
planed for 2005.
Get dates of Slush series.
A door prize has been proposed for cone heads. It would be a seasons worth of entries to WW
events. Jerry moves to offer a season
worth of entries to SCCA events for a door price. Karen B seconded the motion. The motion passed. We’re looking for someone to handle the door
prizes. They would be in charge of
collecting other prizes, and managing 1 ticket per person. Kevin D is going to be our door price
chair. Apr 17th is the first
event of the series, at
Equipment Report – A spare tire has been found for the trailer. Tom is looking for a wheel also for the timing van. Jodie isn’t here, so no update on the radios. Kevin said he would take the van to Brett and Jasons for the scheduled maintenance. No update on timing equipment.
The second rule being discussed is event safety at BMP. The issues are being voted on separately. There is some concern about using the taxiway for use during an event. SCCA may pull permission to use the site, if the issue about safety isn’t addressed. One issue is DSQ’ing a driver if the car goes off course. If a car goes 4 wheels of course the course, the driver is DSQ for the event. Dick motioned for approval, Kyle seconded. The motion passed easily. Course approval is the second part of the issue. Safety stewards can approve the course. Dick motions for approval, Karen seconds. The motion passes. Discussion about course change to incidents was discussed. Val motions, Karen seconds, and motion passes easily.
Discussion about the course design guideline happened. Val motioned to accept the course design guidelines. Karen seconded. The motion passed.
The third rule is clarification of the STS2/STU rules. STS2/STU would be moved into running with stock class. Alan moves to accept. Dick seconds the motion. Motion passed.
The fourth rule discusses scoring for competitors. This would force scoring to be posted at an event. Competitors would be able to view the final results for the event. Rick will change the rule from “must be regularly up-dated during the run” to “should be regularly updated during the run”. Bed moved to accept as amended. Enrique seconded. The motion passes.

WA state Challenge – It will likely be developed next year. This gives NW competitors a chance to compete at different sites and against new competitors. This challenge would be similar to a “slush series” but held during the summer time period.
– Will be held in
2005 Specialty Chief Positions - Need volunteers for several of the positions. If you are interested in ANY positions other than Chief of Timing, Scoring or Chief of Workers, please contact Karl Coleman. A BIG thank you go out to Aaron Pailthorp and Steve Roberts for volunteering for Timing, Jodi Fordahl for volunteering for Scoring, Keith & Kristi Brown for Chief of Workers, and Shelbi Gill for Waivers. There are still some holes, that need to be filled for the 2005 years.
NofYear, WofYear – Kevin suggested Steve Roberts. Kevin was impressed by the effort put forth for with timing and other issues. Bud suggested Tom and Jodi LeCoque. Karl recommended Kimm and Shane Jensen for Novice of the Year. There was additional support for this nomination.
Theme proposal – Brent suggested having a theme to follow each of the events this year. This could carry over into dash plaques, tee shirts, and other items. Fordahl would have to be consulted on the idea of the theme. Greg has the ability to veto ideas
Pro Solo? – It’s appears that nationals will not support a pro-solo in NWR. The suggestion is to run our own pro-solo without nationals. There is some question about getting the equipment. We may be able to either ‘lease’ the equipment or build or own. The concern being that we won’t get enough people to support an event.
Asst. RE - Aaron nominated Jerry Lamb as Asst. R.E.. Val seconded the nomination. Nomination was approved.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:58 p.m.
