You may forward this to the rest of the board if you like. I with several other members of Oklahoma Region SCCA are having legal counsel review the By Laws because we believe that the Board did not properly give notice of Elections. I will also contact the National office to see if the National By Laws were also circumvented. Please take this as notification of our intent to get this matter reviewed as soon as possible. I would ask the Board to wait on any expenditures until this matter is resolved.

“Mark, Stephen and the rest of the crew,
I will not be able to attend this evening’s meeting. So what I will do is deliver my reports for the programs where I have responsibility. On the Rally front, I am currently in the finalizing process right now on the Eastern Oklahoma Tour Rally with an expected event date in October to minimize impact with the Solo program. I also have sanction forms that need signed for a Hare and Hound rally to be held at a convenient time this summer. I’ll be making a post to the RoadRally Facebook group in the next couple of days to poll for a date. In Club Racing, the next scheduled event weekend that directly impacts OKSCCA is July 29-31. This event will be held at Hallett and hosted by KVRG or KC Region and KS Region. During the course of the weekend will also be HPDE/PDX events on both 7/30&7/31 and a Bracket Enduro to be held on the same weekend. HPDE/PDX will allow solo competitors instructed and observed track time for around $150 in their solo cars. Bracket Enduro will allow competitors up to 6 hours of track time in a car that passes the standard technical inspection of SCCA Club Racing. Required safety gear for entrants are firesuit, Nomex undies, certified gloves and shoes as well as a Snell SA helmet within the last TWO review periods (2010 & 2015 are the current standards accepted) or an FIA 8860-2012 or 8860-2015 helmet. Eligible cars are current GCR legal E-Production, Improved Touring R, GT3 and Super Touring eligible vehicles that have current annual inspection from either the national office through a US Majors Tour event or a current annual through MiDiv. There is not a competition license requirement for BE and the event counts towards the alternative path to competition licensing; meaning that after participation in a BE and a regional/divisional school the entrant would be eligible for a regional license and after three additional regional events would be eligible for a full national license. There has also been talk about KVRG hosting a regional school that weekend as well but I have not seen anything concrete on that front. As soon as I know if there’ll be a school I’ll disseminate the information to the membership through the Gazette and related Facebook groups.

Regards, Collin Moore

Good morning all.

Due to a lack of substance for tonight’s meeting we are looking to just doing a couple of items via email instead of going to Rudy’s.

So now that I have all of your attention; I make a motion to cancel the meeting at Rudy’s and just hit the points that need to be touched via email.

It’s official, we are just going to do a quick rundown.

SOLO Report:
So our Solo event had 53 entries. We split it into two events and ran a slightly different course in the afternoon.

Treasurer’s report:
Checking $5758.79
Savings $13186.44
Solo #9 made $1252.41
Solo #10 made $814.47

Club Race Report:
The National Office has posted the dates for the US Majors Tour and the new Hoosier Tire Super Tour dates. There is one date scheduled so far for Hallett Motor Racing Circuit in Jennings for April 7-9, 2017. The Hallett date is for a Hoosier Super Tour event. The Super Tour is marginally different than a US Majors Tour event in that the weekend will also include a Bracket Enduro AND a HPDE/PDX event on top of the SCCA National Run Offs Presented by Garmin Virb qualifier event. The qualification process for the Run Offs is changing slightly for 2017 as well with Majors and Super Tour events counting for different levels of qualifications points. Club racers will be happy to know that the change makes it easier to qualify for the Big Show in Indianapolis in 2017. The remainder of the club race schedule for 2017 is TBD with the possibility of additional events at HMRC, Heartland Park Topeka, The Race Track Formerly Known As Gateway International, Pikes Peak Int’l, I-80 Speedway and others within the division.

On other club race news I am currently going through divisional, Majors Tour and Run Offs results for our club racer of the year award. I also nominate Lynne Cooper for race worker of the year. Lynne is Bill McCreight’s lady friend. Lynne bought a membership in the SCCA just to be able to volunteer at the US Majors Tour event at Hallett back in April and has been a valuable asset for the program and the club with her volunteer efforts this year.

Rally Report:
Nothing new at this time as far as events scheduled within the three region area comprised of OKSCCA, NEOKLA and Wichita Region RoadRally wise. I’m coming to the end of the season for work and will utilize that time to work on several rally routes to put into motion for 2017 and will update the board and membership as work progresses on these routes.

On additional RoadRally news, I’d like to nominate Kevin Knopp and his pop Roger for Rally Team of the year. The Reincarnation Rally was their first ever SCCA events, for which they too purchased a membership to participate in and came in first place overall in the Reincarnation Rally with a grand total of 84.5 penalty points. In a regards to the Rally Worker of the Year Award, I’d like to nominate Jim Duea for that honor. Without his help and guidance, our sole RoadRally event this past season would not have happened and future events would just be pipe dreams.

As everyone is probably already aware, Bob Seelig, brought home, after many years of trying and missing out marginally, a national championship in the Front Wheel Drive Prepared class. OKSCCA has interest in holding a RallyCross, however a lack of site is hampering that process. I’d like to put a call out to the entire membership in regards to site acquisition. The National Office has a presentation package and site acquisition team that will assist with pitching the idea to land owners, but we must first make contact with the prospective owner prior to the National AQ team getting involved. If you or any member knows of a site consisting of relatively flat, pothole and livestock free land that the owner would not mind grass or other ground hugging vegetation being present after we are done please have them get into contact with me ASAP so we can start the site acquisition process and get this program off the ground as well.

Old business:
We are looking at having the awards banquet at Remington and Collin Moore is working with myself and his contact there to get everything set in stone.
