Treasurer’s report:

Treasurer’s Report was presented by Jeff Leavall via e-mail prior to meeting. 


The By-Laws committee will present the recommended changes to the board in a special meeting to be held at Spazio’s on September 21.  This is an opportunity to read them in their entirety before presenting them to the Region Membership for their acceptance.

Membership Report:

Curt Faigle gave a membership report.  He noted that the Programs are generating a fair amount of “weekend” memberships; 68 over the last 2 months.  We have also had 21 new members join.  Region membership is about 550, down slightly from 2 to 3 years ago.  He is working with the Programs to identify people for follow-up calls to try and convert them to full members.

Program Reports: 

Road Rally: Ron Ferris briefed the outcome of the national rally.  12 cars participated with people coming from as far as Maryland and California.  Ron will work with the other programs to find dates in 2010 for a few regional rallys and a National rally.

100 Acre Wood:  

Rally-X:  The third event of the year was this past weekend on Sunday September 13th. It was our lowest turnout of the season. We had 11 drivers and a handful of spectators. The date was our rainout makeup date from earlier in the year.  The weather was pleasant and everyone enjoyed themselves. The design of the course was one of our longest for the season with times around 60 seconds. Results should be posted to the website sometime this week.  The last event for the year is scheduled for Saturday October 3rd at Gateway.

 PDX:  The PDX last event was August 29th of ‘09.  This event was sold out and great time had by all.  Many of the students were asking if they could sign up for the 2010 season.  In September the PDX will be choosing a new Chair as Chuck will be stepping down.

Road Race: Bryon noted that Gateway has established its schedule of major events for 2010 so the club racing calendar planning can begin once every one returns form the Solo Nationals & the Runoffs.


August Minutes:

August minutes will be sent to the board members again for approval.
