News!!! / Re: Tom Sager Sr
« on: January 23, 2015, 01:50:14 pm »
I am very sorry to learn of the passing of your father Tim.  The Sager family has been a large part of the fabric of SCCA for more years than I knew and the whole time that I have been participating.  Your bio is a most fitting tribute to your father.  My best to your family!

Solo (Autocross) / Brian T. Buchman RIP
« on: June 18, 2013, 02:24:03 pm »
Sadly Finger Lakes' Brian Buchman has succumbed to injuries suffered in a one vehicle motorcycle accident in Walworth, NY.  Brian led the Finger Lakes' Solo program for several years and was one of the really nice guys that worked quietly behind the scenes to the benefit of SCCA Solo in this area.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to Brian's family and friends.

Solo (Autocross) / Solo Event 3-RWS-Aug 12
« on: August 07, 2012, 03:44:29 pm »
A note to let the Junior Solo Karters in WNY and FLR that there is a good chance that Alex and I will not be at this Sunday's event.  Somone will need to assume the Junior Kart Steward responsibilities if we are absent.  I won't know for sure whether Alex is rowing in the regatta's finals until Saturday's semi-finals are completed.

I like to watch too Carl.  Especially the hard chargers.  Hey any chance that the WNY gurus could put on a WNY regional version of an EVO school?  I think that we have at least 5-6 well qualified instructors..

The concept has great merit Jim.  Thanks for doing a ton of work on it.  In the end not everyone likes something and it is  inevitably imperfect.  WNY has for many years dared to experiment and tries hard to make things better.  You are part of the solution!  BTW we don't need more classes we need more drivers.
