Re: 2018 Events: time to plan for the first quarter any idea ...

We have not contracted with any venues yet.

As a club we are asking for dates already which is as early as the venues will allow. The schedule is still fluid, as is the national event schedule, but as soon as we have contracted dates we will post them.

Which theme for next years event weekends ?

I thought it might be fun to pick a theme for next years event weekends! Some that come to mind are;

80's movies
90's movies
Syfi references
Sports
Any decade
Monthly holidays
Weird single day holidays that fall on that day.


Just a thought, anyone have any fun ideas?

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

Just an idea for those that wanted to be continuously involved. There is nothing that would prevent a director from being an eboard member their off year. So if you reached a term limit as director you could still be secretary, treasurer, Vice President, President, communications, membership etc. Th...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

History Lesson: There were local clubs putting on events for themselves long before there was any National organization. Some realized it would be fun to compete against each other and needed a set of rules, plus it would increase their ability to get insurance. They formed an organization called t...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

So glancing through the bylaws -- I assume there are only five votes, unless I've missed something. Given that, all the various minimums seem pretty awkward. 50% for one thing, 80% for another, 2/3 for something else. Jeez, there's only five votes. Do those numbers really make sense now? On another...

Re: Everybody - Please read - Club consolidation

I like the new proposal. It would be nice though if there was a way to keep the names of the clubs alive. Perhaps through renaming some of our year-end recognition awards or something similar? These would be the new by-laws for governance , the supps remain the same with the "club" awards.

Re: New to AutoX // Car classing question

Thanks for the suggestions guys. And thanks for all the help on the track a few weeks ago Anthony. Oh, and congrats on the nationals win! I ran the car in B street two weeks ago and just recently saw they updated the rule book to add my limited edition car...in A street. Oops. Doesn't really matter...

Re: New to AutoX // Car classing question

I will second Reed's suggestion, but I would also recommend reading the rule book in case you find you really like Autox! Its my goal to have a car that I can compete in Autox with as well as some Time Trial events.

Even if you don't do the EVO stuff, bring some cash and get some practice starts (only offered Friday) so you can get familiar with the starts.

Re: Pro Solo questions

So here are my questions: Do I need to be there all three days? Friday there is a bunch of EVO stuff, which I don't know what that is but I assume that means I'm not involved. There is three hour practice session. Is that for anyone? The Evo stuff is an additional cost, but very valuable if you hav...
