Solo - Brian reported on the May 18th event. It was a good turnout, despite the rain, with 64 entrants. The next event is Sunday, June 8th. Sue will drop the trailer at Camden County College and it will stay there until after the June 22nd event. Val reported that there are 32 pre-registered for the June 8th event. Brian reported that he and Mike are doing the course design for this event due to the loss of our course designer and our worker assignment person, who are running the National event in MA. John Roberts, from the Northern New Jersey, will be our worker assignment guy for this weekend.
Rally - Jim Wakeman reported that our next event is the triple weekend scheduled for June 21st and 22nd. Two rallies on Saturday and one on Sunday. The Sunday event is part of the Mid Atlantic series.
New Business - R.E. Jim read a letter received from Mike Allenbaugh
requesting that he be awarded the Dave Rose Scholarship for his driver's school. Having received no
other requests, Jim entertained a motion to award the scholarship to Mike. Brian made a motion to
award the scholarship to Mike Allenbaugh, second by Meg. Motion carried. J.D. proposed that we put
a percentage of the net proceeds from our race events into the Dave Rose Scholarship fund. John
suggested that we put $450 into the fund as that seems to be the going entry fee. Mike thanked the
Board for the Scholarship. This will be presented to the Board at the end of the year.
NJMP - John talked about the financial aspects of our races this season. The pay pal account has been set up and the only thing left to do is to connect to DLB racing for registration. Our regular checking account has been assigned to pay pal but John felt that we should set up a separate account for racing only. It was the opinion of the Board to make a race operations account. This was put into a formal motion by John to establish a second account named 'race operations', second by Meg. The initial cost would be for the new checks. Motion carried. J.D. announced that there will be a meeting of the specialty chiefs and region officers from both our region and north jersey region at the track on Saturday, June 7th. The meeting will commence at the Dividing Creek Road entrance. The purpose is to give a sense of the track to our chiefs ie: timing and scoring facility; tech shed; where grid should be placed; location of EV staging; etc. Discussion on the various aspects of our relationship with the track. Val stated that Carol Robertson from the north jersey region has agreed to come and help Val with registration. J.D. stressed the importance of the making of friendships, over the past years, with other regions members and how those friendships are being utilized in the running of our events at NJMP. Discussion on naming of race events (Lizzie Borden?). J.D. needs to finalize the location of our June 21st worker meeting. J.D. went over the meeting that occurred with the track and J.D., David and Terry. Bob Childress announced that he has the time and he would like to help by taking over the position of chairman for the Race Planning Committee. Meg made a motion to accept Bob's offer, second by Brian. Motion carried. Bob will get together with David Teal and get his help with taking over the chairmanship duties. The Board offered their help to Bob, also. John asked about how the request for the sanction for the July event is going. J.D. let him know that it is in the hands of Terry Hanushek and that Terry has forwarded the request to National.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 9PM.
