SRRSCCA Awards Banquet is tonight (1/23/16) at 6 p.m.

The Awards banquet is tonight from 6 p.m. to (roughly) 9 p.m.  We’re excited to have everyone show up for food, fun, and prizes.  Food will be provided starting at 7 p.m. and we’ll have Hot Wheels racing before that.

We’ll be raffling off several prizes tonight as well, including gift cards to SoloPerformance, hats, shirts and a couple free Autocross days (value of $30 each).  You will get a raffle ticket upon entry to the banquet as part of your $10 fee, but you can purchase more tickets for $1 if you’d like to increase your chance of winning these great prizes.

Finally, there will be a cash bar for those that wish to imbibe, but please be responsible and have a designated driver or arrange for a cab.

We look forward to seeing everyone have a fun night!  See you there!

Sign this…

Below is a link to an online petition. Please sign it for the club..share it on your Facebook, twitter, Etc..Get your family to sign it. Hell, knock on some doors on your block and get them to sign it. LOL

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.

Thanks the staff of the SRRSCCA

Treasurer report

accepted

Meeting minutes reading waived.

Old business Classes and timing:
bump groups and open class discussion.
Neil stated bump groups were at one time a good idea however there was discussion to move the bump groups to an open class.
DJ recommended that we use an open 1 and open 2.
Carl pointed out that sanctioning fees are based on total drivers listed on the website. If two classes were used for one driver then one person would be counted as two entries by national when they go to our website to audit our insurance fees.
The computer portion of the timing system is the root of much of the problem. Each different person that has handled timing has developed there own process to address the issue with the open, bump and street tire classes.
One solution is to let the open drivers run all “six” runs and they as a group would do there own calculations for end of year trophy

7:21pm
Earl motion to stop the current data collection process for the open class. All runs will be timed and listed. this makes it up to the open class to calculate among themselves there performance based on there first three runs. Open class will determine trophy winners.
second and motion did not pass.

7:41pm
DJ motion to accumulate data for all classes as normal. Sonny is not responsible for the three run calculations. Open class will appoint one person to calculate the actual results of the open class. There will be a separate section on the site for the open class results so that it does not impact any of the results for any other classes.
second and passed

7:50pm
Richard motion to remove the bump classes.
second and passed

7:51pm
Eric discussion to reduce the number of events to qualify for the trophy.
discussion: Neil explains that the idea behind the half plus one rule was there to prevent the same person to win in two classes. Also it encourages greater participation.
Discussion tabled until we can provide an opportunity for the club to give there opinions.

7:59
KP motion to remove the street tire multiplier indefinitely.
discussion. general discussion is that it appears that only one or two people were using this multiplier.
Second and passed.

8:14
DJ motion to add an SSM’s most current pax multiplier (currently .882) to the IMS class.
Second and passed.

8:31
Discussion: Eric wanted to create check lists for event master safety and all other positions.
it was determined that check list is already in existence.

8:35
Year end banquet discussion: Neil recommends that we should have a pot luck style banquet for the year end awards. If any one is interested in participating with helping to set this up please contact Neil. We will need individuals for food and individuals to set up an audio video presentation covering the year via a video to be played at the banquet. Some names have been added to the list and Neal will contact others. The presented location of the banquet will be at the new location of Restoration Rods. 8633 W. State Boise Idaho

Event report:
was super event!

Equipment report:
Idea for equipment needs.
2 laptops to be able to have a backup. An idea would be to mark on as laptop A and laptop B and swap between them from event to event to assure they both have up to date software. Each computer runs around $400.00.. With the laptops it is recommended we get two monitors and possibly two ssd (solid state drives). There is also a lower cost timing system that sonny thinks would be a great replacement for our aging system.

7:15
Motion to buy two laptops with upgraded SSD hard drives, two monitors as well as the Polaris timing system with back up timing head, antenna and any miscellaneous components needed. (http://farmtek.net/other_uses.htm)
second and passed..

7:31
Motion that we authorize up to 1000.00 for the repair of the trailer roof. Jeff will look into the process.
Second and passed.

discussion to replace the trailer.
7:41
Motion to table the discussion until next year.
second and passed.

discussion:
classes
KP indicated that there are to many classes causing an unneeded load of work on the people who prepare the results for posting on the site. KP recommends that next year we look at possibly altering the number of classes. It was reported that the only issue with timing is the Open Class three run National style competing. If an Open Class driver drives more than three runs it causes more work to be done than is may be needed. A thought was to set up each open driver to listed twice as Open Class and Closed Class Or Open Class 1 and Open Class 2. This would eliminate the issue.

7:52
Jeff motion to table the classing discussion pending input from the club.
second and passed

Mountain home AFB:
Neil and Jim will approach mountain home to see if we can manage to get an event there.

Ontario site info:
Neil received info. Some of the Attendees complained about dust however the complaint was not directed towards the competitors. The complaint was towards the city not having done enough to prep the staging area. The mayor and the rest really liked the event. Even the people who complained about the dust enjoyed the event. As a result there is another larger area they might like to have us come back and run on. There is also another site at a large shopping center in Ontario that we may get access to. Neil will pursue the information. Above all else the competitors enjoyed the event and with resolution to the dust issue the SRRSCCA would love to revisit the Ontario site.

Battery positive cover and relocation requirements discussion:
In vehicles that have a battery in stock location a positive cover is not required. If a battery has been relocated from a stock location then the battery must be in a marine box and must also have a cover on the positive cable. The gel batteries are exempt from the marine battery box requirement. As a club it was decided that these rules will be followed as written in the SCCA rule book

Scatter shields and other class required items that have been seen to not be followed.
It has been determined that this is up to the competitor to assure they meet the class requirements for there class.
