Minutes Review – Minutes were approved as written.


Board Report –  Race is solvent for the season.  They have enough money leftover to start next season.  Pacific Rally group held their event which turned into an issue because the land they had originally agreed to use was taken back due to snow coverage.  They were able to pull together some last minutes replacements and fun was had by all.

Treasurer’s Report – Please see attached.span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> 


WWSCC Report –  Slush Series has been finalized - 1/28 (UW) at Everett, 2/4 (Torque Steerers) at BMP, 2/25 (ACE) at BMP.  Coneheads will be February 10th.  WW is moving the website from Eskimo.  People will need to resubscribe to the NWR list once we move to the new server.  Glen Austin is spearheading this effort.  WW Rules meeting is on Thursday night at the Factoria Community Center at 7:00 p.m.


Equipment Report –   The Solo Bus is completely fixed.  Brian needs to pick it up on Friday, but needs to get a check from Lou Ann first.  The next step will be to take it down and get a radio installed.




2007 Solo Chair – We are STILL looking for a replacement for Jerry next year.  Someone needs to step up and take their turn helping this region move forward.  Mary Lee has agreed to be our BoD Liason.  We are still looking for someone to direct these meetings, and he would also like to try and find a Operations Manager.


NORPAC Convention – It is still being held in Reno the first weekend in January.  So far we have discussed the following ideas:


Data Acquisition – Bud has been working on this.  He has been in contact with three vendors with one committing to showing up.  It may be added with a couple of the subjects below based on the amount of time that Andy Hollis will need for his discussions.

Car Classification theory/issues – Andy Hollis

Safety Steward Refresher

Site Acquisition -

Solo car setup I & II – Andy Hollis

Trophies – This has already been added to the agenda.

Regional Issue Round Table –

Party Planning – Gretchen and Kristi will be responsible for this roundtable.


Because we are the host region we are required to have a decent agenda.  There are currently three people who are going to Reno because they are running seminars.  Jerry wants to make a proposal that we cover the airfare, hotel and registration fees for these three people.  A motion was made and seconded.  After a discussion a vote was made and passed.  We will be paying for all of the above for Kristi Brown, Gretchen Everett, and Bud Bohrer.


Coneheads Banquet – Will be held February 10th.  The cost will be $30 to participate.


Trophies – Kristi has ordered the small helmets for 2nd place and below.  Jackets will be distributed for first place positions.


Packwood Assistance –  We had a total of 19 people go down throughout the weekend.  A total of $1000 was donated to a local non-for profit and they were extremely surprised and pleased by this gesture.

Rule Proposals –


#1:  Combine STS with NS4. – When we started the consolidated classing idea a few years back, STS was a large enough class to stand on its own and id not need to be grouped with the other Street Touring classes.  Now the numbers just don’t support having the separate class. 


Voted on and approved.


#2:  Administrative Clean Up Issues – Rule 11 add the following line; Failure to complete a work assignment may result in restriction from future events, at the discretion of the Event chair and or Solo Chair.  Rule 16 revise line for consistency.  Change to state Street Touring cars run with the Stock Classes.  Rule 17 edit the last line to read Street Touring classes are not eligible. 


Voted on and approved.


Novice and Worker of the Year – Jackie McInnes, Mary Lee, Chris Kmetz.  A vote was taken and decisions were made.
