New Business: Rob Schoemeyer suggested that we consider renaming our “track days” to be more inclusive to people who may be intimidated by the idea of a track day. Dates are not yet 100% confirmed, however deposits have been made for 10 events. We are just waiting for final word from the car club. We will not have an official booth at the upcoming bike show, but hope have promotional material available at various dealer displays and at the PCMRC booth. Promotional materials will be made available once our dates are finalized. Spero mentioned that one piece of air fence is damaged and the leaf blowers likely need to be replaced. The exec was aware that the air fence needs repair and is in the process of determining where best to have it mended. We will follow up on the leaf blower replacement.

Say thank you, write a letter, show your appreciation for their support. DON’T be cheap with your thank you’s! This is a great time of year to make the effort to show your gratitude. One of our sponsors has suggested that if you had an awesome experience at the track, either racing or at the school or track day, write a story about it, include some pictures and send it in to your local newspaper. Your sponsor will get his name mentioned, the club will get publicity, and you’ll be a star. Motion to adjourn made by Jason Hanson, seconded by Rob Schoemeyer.
