South Jersey Region-Sports Car Club of America, Inc.

July 2004

The July 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 David Hess on Wednesday evening, July 7, 2004. The meeting was called to order by R.E., J.D. King at 8:15 PM.

Present were: J.D. King, John Borden, Jack Oliver, David Hess, Ed Jenks and Grace Huntzinger.

Solo II – Discussion lead by John was on how the committee was to be set up and how best to run our events. John has volunteered to head up this committee. Some of the members mentioned by John for this committee are Brian Heun, Jack Oliver, Dave Hess, Grace Huntzinger. Other Solo II participants will be contacted to see if they would like to participate as working members of this committee. J.D. did make a point of making sure that outside members trying to take on tasks not assigned to them, that these folks will have to be cleared by John Borden. John did stress that there will be a chain of command within this committee. Case at point is the number of runs at the last event. Ed pointed out that, at the events he attended recently, he felt they were run in an orderly manner although there did not appear to be one person in charge. John felt that the committee should meet the week before the Board of Directors meeting. Dave mentioned some safety issues. Jack felt that radio protocol should be a primary instruction to corner workers. Maybe there should be two frequencies used. This will be discussed at the next committee meeting. John will make a decision on where best to put Mike’s talents to best use. J.D. stated that he is not into politics but gives kudos to those workers who continually show up and volunteer their time. We have the equipment and people who will operate it and J.D. asked John, that if it is necessary, could he go to Grace’s house and pick up the computer. He said that he would. Ed stressed that Jim Tornetta was correct in the fact that a single person should be in charge of the schedule at each event. John stated that everyone should be in perspective and should know when to move on.

Treasury – Jack reported a balance in the operating account of $4,369.55. All current bills have been paid.

Tri-Region – Ed reported that a detailed list has been created to coordinate with the Pocono track personnel on the set up of an event. Pre-race meeting will be Wednesday, July 14th.
August 20th, 21st & 22nd are the dates for the Double National. Dave asked about making announcements at the Solo events to ask for workers. J.D. encouraged Dave to participate himself as a worker at the National. Jack suggested that anyone from Solo II who comes up to work will be given a free day at the next Solo II event. J.D. suggested that the coupon in the Solo II flyer be validated at the National for the free day. Discussion centered on this. John felt that a schedule should be put together and given to those folks who would like to participate in another aspect of our sport of road racing. Ed gave a short explanation of what the work cycle consists of at an event. Jack volunteered to be the one to make the announcement.

The next Board of Directors meetings will be – August at Jack’s, September at Ed’s and October at John’s.

There being no further business, meeting was adjourned at 9:45 PM

Respectfully submitted,
