    • DBcomTiming system.
    John Cathie will try and sell the DBcom hardware and software system.
    It was discussed that DBcom transmitters could be included in the sale of the system and that to do so there could be an offer where the club could buy the memberships old transponders or the possibility to include the return in the license application so that if the transponder is turned over there is a discount towards the licence fee.
    This is ongoing. The system is still trying to be sold. DBcom transponders will try to be included in any deals and any buy back type offers will be revisited when an offer for the system has been made.
    • There was a mention to speak to Dean about the computers to run the new timing system.

    • Discussed the Tag Heuer system. More information is needed before deciding whether or the club should adopt it. Execs to talk to Dean.
    • Hay bale party to prepare hay bales will be announced soon
    • Discussed that the storage containers need desiccate. Anthony can supply the club with some.
    • Discussed AMB Transponders and availability for the WCC. Everyone should be buying their personal units. There is a very limited number of
    transponders that should be available to rented. Other options that were introduced include borrowing/renting the PCMRC (for 250 class bikes) and or
    Sports Car Club transponders.
    • Discussed ways to improve the show and bring in more spectators. Perhaps another stunt show?
    • Discussed the merit of the club owning the radios. George asked to complete a feasibility study to compare the equipment and costs.
    • Pam is working on licensing. A new club seal and gate pass stamp are required.
    • Discussed that the PA system is hard to hear in some areas of the pits. The system is what it is, we have no control over it. However there is an FM modulator that
    is always broadcasting. It was suggested the FM channel be shown in the race program to help make people more aware of it. The channel is 96.7fm.
