Program Reports:

Solo – April Schardthorst reports 138 entrants for the April 18th event and a couple of new members joined. Next event is may 9th. Chris Mertens is the new equipment chief. Lee Hanson is working with the Backstoppers organization for an event to support this charity. Tentative date is June 27th.

Club Racing – Attendance continues to trend down and more racers are waiting to the last minute making event planning difficult. The program is looking for alternate sources of income due the in down trend in entries. Entry frees will be raised for the August race.
The next event is the Double School/Double Regional May 14-16. The Arkansas Valley Race Group and the Kansas Valley Race Group will share in the financial outcome of this race. Entries are very low. Looking at ways to cut costs.

Performance Rally – Completed contributions to four charities totaling $1100. Met with the Perry County Commissioners on April 15th about plans for a Regional rally in southeast Perry County later this year. The meeting was well received and we are awaiting further response from the Commissioners before doing any serious work on this event.

Rally-X – No events scheduled due to the loss of Gateway as a venue. Have a lead on a new site.

Road Rally –No report.

PDX– The April 15th event sold out. The May 8th event did not and will lose about $1200. Attendance was probably down because it was Mother’s Day weekend and school graduations. The May 14th Club Trials will be changed to a PDX due to extremely low entry. Sponsors and instructors will be invited to entry for free but will be asked to make a donation for insurance.

Drifting- No report but the first event was held May 8th. The attendance was low, but the participants were very enthusiastic.
