Solo (Autocross) / Re: Stories from Nationals
« on: September 11, 2013, 11:32:01 am »
Yep, that was me...

Rear sway bar broke in a VERY fast, VERY bumpy sweeper (which, of course, I don't know in the car at the time), I thought about trying to save it, but was afraid of putting it upside down because of the bumps, so I let in spin which took me at a course worker. Waiting for Stephen's video to confirm if I actually said sorry....

Ice Racing report - No Joe, no report, but all shook heads and agreed that the first cars on ice are six-months away.
Solo (Jon) - Successful season even though numbers could be better, "nothing interesting" happening.
Membership report (Jon) - 291 members, Roy B asked if many of the approximately 30% of members who were from Canada were identified as Solo, Jon suggest that virtually no Canadians are involved with Solo.  A very brief discussion about Canadian members concluded, as usual, that they probably overwhelmingly belong for racing driver, crew and worker licenses.

Bob Burns, Glen Region long-time racer, steward, officer, sometimes-pain-in-the-butt and friend died.
The Vintage Tour will run on August 11 - flyers within a week.
The WNYR Summer Picnic will be on Monday, August 5 at the East Aurora Rod & Gun or Fish & Fur or whatever (same place as last year), flyers within a week.

Solo (Autocross) / Re: Recommend a local place to buy a helmet...
« on: March 21, 2013, 09:14:33 am »
Never bought one locally, but when you try on helmets --
if it feels like it fits, it's too big
if it feels a little too tight, it's the right size

The padding always loosens up some in use, so you have to account for that.

News!!! / Winner’s Choice Raffle
« on: March 12, 2013, 08:12:33 am »
During the National Convention, the SCCA Foundation announced  the opening of their “Winner’s Choice Raffle.”  The winner has a choice of a 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club Edition, or a 2013 Mazdaspeed 3 or $18,000 cash.  The drawing will be held on 15 June, and the winner’s name will be announced live at the June Sprints,  posted on the SCCA and Foundation web sites, and emailed to all SCCA members.  You will also see the raffle featured in Sports Car Magazine.  Proceeds from the raffle will go towards supporting the Foundation’s primary programs;  the Formula SAE program, The Tire Rack Street Survival Teen Driving Safety Education program and the  preservation, cataloging and displaying of SCCA historical artifacts and information.

The raffle is being conducted totally on-line, so debit/credit cards are the only form of payment that is accepted.  There are several ticket purchase options available.  The more tickets purchased, the less expensive each ticket will be.

I’ve attached some “flyer” and poster graphics that you can use to advertise the raffle on your region websites, newsletters and at your membership meetings and events.  In addition,  a link to www.sccaraffle.org on your websites to the raffle website would be most appreciated.  Also, it’s important to note that the raffle is open to any US citizen, 18 yoa or over, so you do not need to be an SCCA member to contribute, or win the prize!  Encourage your members to distribute raffle information to their relatives, friends, neighbors and co-workers.

This is an excellent, easy and rewarding way to raise funds for the vital programs your Foundation supports.

Please give this information the widest dissemination.  If you have any questions about the raffle, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

The Foundation thanks you for your support!
