Regional Meeting Minutes
April 28, 2015
The meeting was called to order by Steve at 7:30
Steve wanted to point out about the recent resignation of John Rudy as the editor of the region newsletter mainly due to lack of material provided to John so he could provide the outstanding newsletter that he had produced for years. A big time thanks to John for a great job!
Alan talked about the region facebook page and discussion about continuing publishing the region newsletter the Squeal, instead of just doing a face book page.
Charlie commented about all of the stories he has written in the past and that he didn’t receive much feedback about and also all of the stories that Alan also wrote as well. Ed thanked both for all of their efforts in writing stories.
There will be an e-board meeting a half an hour before next meeting to discuss the Squeal and face book stuff.
Alan gave the treasures report and at the end of March we had expenses for autocross and banquet and will have income coming in for the first event of the autocross series of the year. The club is doing well even considering the expense of upgrades of timing equipment etc.
