New Business - J.D. announced that there is going to be a NJMP workers party at the track and asked permission to hand out the t-shirts from our first event at NJMP.

As our regular meeting place at the Clarion is under renovations, we need to find another venue for our monthly Membership and Race Planning Committee meetings. Bob suggested Ventura's restaurant on Rt. 73. He will follow up and give a report at our Membership meeting next week which will be at the hotel.
