  • Autocross Report: Chris Brown
    • Event this weekend
    • Timing may be moved closer to truck and registration to avoid moving moving equipment more than needed
    • May try a new system for corner workers during this season where there is a corner chief with checklist of those that are supposed to be working, in the bucket. Radios will stay in the bucket. Since workers get their assignment first thing in the morning so they don’t have to stand by the registration table get their their assignments just before they go out to course.
    • Additional sponsor for the club – OSS – Operational Speed Support
    • Melissa said that Hanover Auto Group wants to be an additional sponsor at the $750 level

    • Last weekend we had 2 events. School on Saturday (10 students) and points even on Sunday
    • Sunday had 47 competitors. Things went well other than timing had some technical glitches
    • Course held up fairly well, some sites started to rut up. More course maintenance will be in the future at some point.
  • Road Rally: Adam Dellinger
    • We decided to postpone the event and will hold the event in the fall. Adam plans to reach out to South Mountain Partnership to discuss partnership opportunities for funding and/or promotional assistance.
  • Old business
    • RallyCross rake
      • Need to determine if the club wants to buy it outright. RX team will use it again and making a decision
    • Timing computers
      • Need the computers to deal with RX dust – perhaps something that’s mil spec rated and/or does not have a fan
      • Jake Limm has access to free/low cost laptops that we can try for a while and see how it lasts but we have concerns about them dying mid-run and then taking taking the time to switch computers in the middle of event
      • Jake and Andy will look for new computers that fit the need and report back with options for consideration by May 5th.
  • New Business
    • No new business
