South Jersey Region-Sports Car Club of America, Inc.
The June 2004 meeting of the Board of Directors for the South Jersey Region of the Sports Car Club of America, Inc. was held at the home of Sue King on Wednesday evening, June 2, 2004. The meeting was called to order by R.E., J.D. King at 8:15 PM.
Present were: J.D. King, Jim Tornetta, Meg Meyer, Ed Jenks, Sue King and Grace Huntzinger.
Tri-Region – Ed initiated a discussion on how best to get the members if the Tri-Region Board united behind a common effort and how best to define responsibilities. There was a consensus that the senior members should be giving the newer members more support and direction.
Solo II – June 13th is the next event at ATCO. Grace reported that all is ready. She brought the finished wire with the new connectors. Andre will not be present to design the course and Jim volunteered to create a course which will be checked out by the safety steward. Grace reported that there may be a lot conflict when the punch buggy group is at ATCO. J.D. will check with Joe Sway on this. It was felt that Joe Sway has already committed the lot to the region. Grace reported that the Ripkin Stadium, where the Divisionals were held, has a fairly large parking lot.
Treasury – There was no report.
Membership – Meg reported that she has finally received a report from National. She will have a membership count by next week at the membership meeting. J.D. asked that she refine the list received and email it to him.
Competition – J.D. reported on the memorial day events at Limerock.
Old Business - Tour de Sol – Jim reported that is was a fantastic event and that there were 65 cars at the Sovereign center in Trenton. Each car got two runs. Jim, Dave Hess, Jim Wakeman and Chris Beckman from the British Car Club set up the course. They got there early and put in several runs before the Tour de Sol cars got there. Jim said that he and Jim Wakeman were doing 23-24 second runs and a couple of the Tour de Sol cars put in 28 second runs. Jim said that he did not have to explain about the course as the Tour de Sol members learned from last year and immediately started walking the course to get orientated for their runs. There were more hybrids this year. Dave got to drive one of the electric cars.
New Business – New track. J.D. reported on his meeting with the principal members of the proposed motorsports park in Millville. More on this later.
There being no further business, meeting was adjourned at 9:15 PM.
