Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

I think the idea is that thru the annual general election process general membership will be more aware to the issues leadership faces and create additional opportunity to get directly involved. For those "sideline members", not too much will change operations-wise vs an eBoard event, but ...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

Let's start: Pros (in no particular order): 1) Less confusion from new members regarding purpose of clubs within the regional club (sub-clubs). (as illustrated by various comments in this thread. Please scroll up and read if needed) 2) Potential lower entry fees, due to elimination of need to profit...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

At this point, I hope we can direct the discussion on whether or not moving from the club model to the regional model is what we want to do. If we do move forth with the regional model, we can then start to go over our by-laws and implementation steps in greater detail and revise accordingly to bett...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

Please describe to us how a No Club member is represented in the eBoard? Note that there are currently no renewal restrictions on No Club status members. Read my response. A "No-club" member was to be for you 1st year only.... SO YOU COULD PICK A CLUB. - At the time introduced, the club r...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

One of the reasons for the increase in E-Board hosted events was the cost of renting El Toro, which made profit sharing with the club minimal. Part of the incentive for a club to host an event was that they made money for their members. True about ET, but no denying that a good amount of ACS events...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

I like the new proposal. It should allow for a more accurate representation of current (with the regular rotation) membership voices in leadership decisions. And with basically only 2 clubs doing the volunteering (event hosting) and heavy reliance on E-Board hosted events the current governance mode...

Re: Explain sway bar binding to me

If the sway bar can move relatively smoothly, then check the endlink lengths to make sure preload is removed.
Hopefully, you have adjustable endlinks.

Re: "entrants" and supplemental rules 7.9.1 question

Having auto crossed in other venues the single biggest deterrent I've faced in trying to grow CAM is the number of runs. The second biggest factor is the difficulty of the courses.

Maybe Craig, you are misunderstanding the wording of the current rules. Guest drivers can still "win" any class they compete in, they just don't get a physical trophy or solo bucks. Results still get published and they can brag all they want. Basically my understanding of the rules is, if...

Re: "entrants" and supplemental rules 7.9.1 question

I agree with George's interpretation. Even if they are SCCA members (annual or weekend membership), they should need to purchase a points card to be an official entrant and not a guest. If their a guest, and not an entrant, then they should be excluded from the results, and made ineligible to base ...
