Olympus Rally will begin at the Capital Building and the Governor will be in attendance. The motorcycle groups backed up from participating at Olympus because of medical coverage concerns.

Time Trials:

Mark has nothing to report.

 

Website:

NWR website is finally fixed. Problems were caused by the servers being upgraded for better security functions. Joe was not happy with the service.

 

 

Membership:

New membership flyers and postcards are being sent to potential members. Miquel has started on the First Gear operations manual.

 

Membership meeting is tentatively slated for June. Miquel asked that board members start thinking of ways to attract new members. Miquel is thinking about making t-shirts designed to provide information about SCCA membership. Promotional items are getting really low. Miquel has solicited a number of young drivers who are interested in getting involved with Rallycross and is going to organize a membership drive.
