Representatives of the PDX Program presented a request asking the Board to reconsider the decision that allows posting information about other Club’s events, specifically schedules and dates, on the Region’s Forum.  The Board has received many comments from a wide array of Region members both in favor and against this policy.

Motion to uphold the previous (May, 2009) decision was made by Jeff Seelig.  It was seconded by Carol Cohn.  Five votes in favor, one vote against (Lee Hanson).  Motion carried to continue with the Forum policy as decided in the May, 2009 Board Meeting.

Program Reports

Rally Cross:

The first event of the season was canceled. The amount of rain that IL received last week proved to be too much for the east grass parking lot of Gateway. The event will be rescheduled for a later date in the year.  The next event is on Sunday June 28th


The PDX had to move its May event to a date to be announced later.  The PDX Plus is July 8th.

Road Race:

Things are on track for the August race.

We have decided to cancel our October event.  We thought long and hard about this and tried to work out many different alternatives but in the end nothing panned out as viable to put on a successful weekend.  Plans are being worked on now with Gateway to better our dates for next year.


Held event #3 on Memorial Day with excellent turnout (116) many of the entrants were new.  We had some computer issues but in spite of that and the torrential rain we didn’t get much negative feedback.  Our next event is June 14th and hopefully the computer issues will all be solved and we will only have to deal with Mother Nature.
