Minutes of Eighth Meeting of 1997 Board of Directors
July 16, 1997
The meeting was convened at the office of Steve Archer at 7:20 P.M. R.E. Gary Pitts, B.O.D. members Sal Versaggi, Pete Wagner, Steve Archer, Kevin Jenkins, and Clint deWitt were present. Mr. David Vodden (Region Business Consultant) was also present.
The minutes of the last meeting were approved by acclamation.
Roger Eandi was not present to give his "National Report" as he was unexpectedly called out of town.
The meeting went into executive session to discuss personnel matters.
Gary brought up that the Easy-up used to cover the worker's lunch area was stolen over the Sportscar event at Sears Point the weekend prior. It will need to be replaced. Dave offered to call Easy-up and others to see if we could a new one donated before we go and spend the $450.00 to replace it. We all agreed and left the matter with Dave to handle.
Clint brought up a new schedule for the Enduro weekend at Thunderhill at the end of the season when the new portion of track will be open. Said schedule called for the elimination of the Solo 1 on Saturday and replaced it with a full points Regional. Much discussion ensued. A motion was made to approve (Wagner/ Jenkins). Approved Unanimously.
Kevin gave the Treasurer report. We are tracking at or slightly better than forecasted. Our belt tightening efforts and Region restructuring efforts seem to be starting to pay off.
The new track configuration was discussed and reviewed which brought about some minor changes.
Dave gave Sal the information from the County as to what they will require to approve the installation of the new bathrooms and related septic system.
The liaisons reports started with Sal.
Sal brought up the problem of since we went with the "Sprint" races at the Regional's Timing and Scoring's load is doubled and they are absolutely being overworked. Much discussion ensued including Clint mentioning that several solutions were being worked on with National and a possible partial solution might be in the offing. Sal recommended that we invite Bill and Patty Dwyer to the next BOD meeting to see what could be done.
Sal also brought up the need for a permanent liaison to Sears Point was needed since Gary Meeker was no longer available. Sal offered his services since he lived so close to the track and stopped by there often.
Finally it was brought up that although there were several Board members present during the Sportscar race weekend earlier last week there was no single Board member assigned to the weekend. This was a mistake on the Boards part and Gary got volunteers for the upcoming races being worked the rest of the year.
They are as follows:
|Sept. 6th CART----Pete Wagner|
|Aug. 15th Historics--- Gary Pitts|
|Oct 3rd NASCAR Truck--- Steve Archer|
|Oct.24 Sportscar @ Laguna--- Clint deWitt|
There was no other Liaison reports.
It was decided that the next BOD meeting would be on August 20th and Steve once again graciously offered his offices.
Where upon the meeting adjourned at 10:40 P.M..
Salvador Versaggi- Secretary
