Discussion on drivers school:

The Morning is for getting familiar with the elements and the afternoon is used to set up an example course for the drivers use what they have learned.
Bob from Fairly Reliable Bobs stated he is excited about the school as it helps kids learn about driving in a manner that can be used to make them better drivers on the road by building confidence in the face of a road hazard. It also gives them an understanding of the limitations of a vehicle which prevents potentially dangerous decisions while on the road.

Once a date is established Carl will build a group of volunteers to staff the event.

left open for discussion However consensus is that this event will take place……
Discussion on Schedule:
schedule confirmed as listed on the website
Participation Points Discussion:
the objective of the participation points was to encourage additional participation in the club. The thought is that it is not doing what it was designed for. Point was made by DJ that when the participation points were put in place there was two individuals working the events. After the points system was put in place the number increased to about 8 individuals.
Matt Elliott Motion to abolish the participation points.
Street Tire Multiplier Discussion:
A street tire pax was established to bring the competitiveness in line between street tires and race tires within a class as well as to allow an individual to run both types of tires and keep times consistent..
The issue is that a street tire multiplier added to existing scca points/class system has caused confusion for registration and timing as people bounce between tire types. Also a large issue has been competitors not updating registration with what they are running and then requiring updated during the event. Rules are in place that make this a none issue and will be enforced. I.E. if you do not notify registration of your tire status then you will not be able to change that status once you have registered.
Carl somerton: motion to keep the tire multiplier (.98) the same and see what the national SCCA does with the street tire classes and bring it up for discussion next year.
Discussion of the number of runs that count for the a days event:
There has been interest in changing to an open class and nationals run process where only three runs count towards the days event.
discussion tabled due to lack of interest and the the fact that it would be a “timing nightmare” due to the manual labor required.
Porsche club wants to put on an autocross instruction.
Audi group wants to set up an autocross instruction.
The idea was welcome and negotiations will begin with each group to establish dates, cost and staffing. Many members indicated interest in volunteering to staff the events.
Once negotiations are complete a motion to put on the events is expected.
