Discussion
The event master of any upcoming event would need to contact the important positions to verify they are attending. There is no motion needed. This is an expectation of the postion.

Air force report
The air force has not said no to the SRRSCCA having an event at the mountain home air force base. they appear to still be very interested.

Ontario event
It appears that we will not be running at Ontario.

KP motion to cancle all listed Ontario events from the schedule.

Event report.
Neal
The last couple events seem to have been very impressive courses. The only concern was timing had some issues. This is related to equipment issues. It is felt that a headset for the starter and one for the person in the trailer would be beneficial to resolving some of the issues with communication in timing.

Discussion
It has been observed that course workers tend to bunch up at there stations where there is a tendency to miss downed cones. It also causes confusion on who is to get what cones. It is felt that it is the worker chiefs job to address these issues when they come up as well as to discuss this at the beginning of the event. It is also felt that safety should be observant of course workers to help prevent this from becoming an issue on the course.

7:33pm
Sonny motion to change the name IMS to street unlimited.
Discussion. Changing the name in the middle of the season may not be received well. It was pointed out that the number of IMS entries has shrunk to just a couple entrants at each event. It is felt that the members of IMS should be allowed time to discuss the idea. It is recommended that the idea be posted online to allow discussion and then revisited later this year.
Issue was not seconded.
7:46
Sonny motions that we table this issue until towards the end of the season to allow for input from IMS

7:47
KP motions that starting in the 2017 season there will be only national SCCA classes and no others accept for the novice and Street Unlimited should it become a class.
Discussion
It is felt that making a rule that we cannot have any other classes is a knee jerk reaction and would tie our hands should the need for another class arise. This also means that open class would be eliminated.
second and motion did NOT pass.

We will have credit card payment capable for the rest of the season.

With great respect Charles Fletcher did not win the snake pot.

Discussion Neil: The AFB is seeming to be very interested in having us come back out and run there. A few stipulations exist. A few weeks prior to the event the base needs to have a list of participants that included name SSN and Birthday. Also those people would need to be on a list on the day of the event and they will be presented with a map that designates allowable areas they can be in. There is also a potential for there to be a cap on the number of participants. Neel presented a map of the area that we would be allowed to be run on. Possible time frame for an event on the the AFB is two to three weeks after the first event of the season. As soon as a definite date is presented it will be posted on the website as well as other areas.

KP pointed out that we want to assure that we keep good relations with the municipal Airport in mountain home. It was agreed that this is important and we would need to keep good relations and good communication with the BOD and the city council.

Neal stated he will attend the various meetings.

Ontario report:
Nothing new has been presented from Ontario. We are attempting to get to a new area for better driving however no solid information is available.

Jeff has constructed a fold able a-frame for helmets to be used during the event.

7:20
Jeff motion
Eliminate the participation points system. (second)
Discussion: Carl indicated there were issues with the collection of the points was flawed. KP stated that he believed that the points system was not needed and that points should not be a method of getting people to help or participate. It was discussed that there could be other incentives such as raffles. Another view was that the encouragement to participate at events should be handled and organized by the event master during the events.

Motions passes.

7:59
KP motion
Championship points are figured by total points from all but 10% of the pointed events. (second)
Discussion: It was indicated that it would appear to be a participation driven system rather then competition driven. Several people indicated that all but 25% should be the threshold. It was also indicated that with a schedule that may be tentative in nature it would be difficult for a competitor to plan his season around the system. Also it was stated any event that has a cap on the number of competitors or they are not allowed due to a denial as a result of a back ground check then that event should not be a “pointed event”.

Amended motion. Championship points are figured by total points from all but 25% of the pointed events rounded down to the nearest whole number.

Amended Motion passes.

8:08
Jeff motion
To be eligible for a trophy you must participate in half plus one rounded down to the nearest round number.
Discussion:
The concern is that this may drive away participation. Others felt that having a trophy for more individuals may drive up participation. It was advised that the cost of trophies and banquets create a situation where the club ends up loosing money to the point of possible bankruptcy if the number of trophies given increases from decreasing the number of required events.
Motion passed.

8:10 motion
Minimum number of events for a person to to qualify for a trophy be a number based on the average number of events participated in year prior plus one.
second
Discussion. the ambiguous nature of the number to qualify makes it difficult to quantify as the number of events may change during a season. It is understood by all members at the meeting that this motion, if passed negates the motion made by Jeff at 8:08. (to be eligible for a trophy you must participate in half plus one rounded down to the nearest round number.)

(Amended) To qualify for a trophy a person must participate in 8 events and that no one participant can trophy in more than 1 class.
Passed

Number 77 was selected for snake pot
KP won the snake pot.

The purpose of this petition is to garner as much support as possible to attempt to get the Idaho State Police POST facility as an available venue for the club. We have attempted this before, but…try and try again.

Having 1000+ signatures and a good plan will hopefully go a long way to getting this great event site for the club.
