Region

July 2022:  Our last BoD meeting was lightly attended.  An important item we did not address was the upcoming elections.  So far we have one person that will be on the ballot for Director at Large.  We need at least two more. RE and Secretary are also up for election.  We are a volunteer organization.  Our competition groups are well run.  We still need to have a functioning BoD and we need younger members to step forward.  Member interests are changing.  SOLO is thriving and is a home versus a steppingstone to Racing.  We are trying to establish and grow Rallycross.  Membership meeting (a former chance for socializing) seems to only interest our older members. we should not try to go back to the good old days we need members help us adapt to what is wanted of the Region today.  Contact Meridith croucher if you are interested in serving on the BoD.

Road Race

July 2022:  Our Super Tour was a successful event.  We had 242 entrants this years average attendance was247.  SCCA National brought drive on scales to the event making life easier in Tech.  I have attended 3 Regional races all with low attendance, The 2 at Nelsons Ledges, both put on by Ohio regions only had 48 entries.  The July Sprints at WGI had under 100 entrants.  Needless to say none of the Regions covered their cost.  The Supps for the Fun One September 17 and 18 have been approved. Registration will open August 1.  As always, we will need help in Tech.  If you are not racing please come and help out .  Last years Fun One was the first time I had to ask for help from the participants to weigh cars.  We should never be in that position.  Some of you may be planning to go to the Run Offs and may not want to risk damage to your cars by entering this does not preclude you from working.

Rallycross

Feb 22 - We have no events currently scheduled.  Spring time work day to repair the field will be scheduled as the weather improves.

Road Rally

2/3/22:

 

The Winter RoadRally series is in full swing with 3 events complete and 3 to go. We've had really good participation this year with a nice mix of novice and experienced teams. This season we're posting Rally review articles on the comeroadrallywith.us website. Here's one written by Karl Haltiner from his December Rally:

Monthly Rally meetings continue on the second Tuesday of the month (7:30-9:00pm Rick Barnes' house - 96 Church St, Victor, NY). These meetings are especially fun during the winter season as we share our stories and adventures from the most recent Rally.
