Triangle Chapter Report - February 2016

It was a cold and wet Wednesday, February 3rd, when a few stalwarts of the Triangle Chapter met at El Rodeo in Raleigh.  And that was a good thing because we got to meet Tyler Townsend, a prospective member, who found us on the web and came out to see what the SCCA and North Carolina Region were all about. Hey Tyler, glad to meet you!  Tyler’s quite interested in autocrossing and is making plans to attend the 2-day school and inaugural 2016 season event at Cherry Point, March 5-6; though he was disappointed to learn that the SCCA thinks that his bone-stock Scion xB is too tippy to be a Street category Solo car.  But Tyler said his daughter’s Jetta just might be a better ride anyway.  Hope to see you there, man!

Tired of the Snow and Cold Weather? Well, hang in there...racing season is coming!!

Does the recent weather have you feeling like this?

Triangle Chapter Report - December 2015

The last meeting of the Triangle Chapter for 2015 was a lively one, in no small measure due to the fact that, once again, we were not alone in the upstairs lounge at El Rodeo. It seems that the staff forgot we were coming and booked another group in the downstairs meeting area, so we wound up with overflow dinner guests among our members. Oh well, I hope that they had a good time. But due to the crowding and the confusion, I opted not to try to hook up my DVD player to one of the restaurant TVs and show the Goblins Go in-car video that James Etchells brought, of the SARRC race in his EP Miata. Hey, Jim! Bring it again in the early part of next year, to the February or March meeting, and we’ll try again. We should be pretty well starved for racing videos by then!

New Officers elected for NCR after running unopposed

Nominations for RE, Secretary and the two Member-at-Large positions (currently Held by Heather Powers and Blair Stitt) for terms beginning in 2016 were due by the end of the November Board meeting, Wednesday, November 18th. None of the Current office holders, Rex Deffenbaugh, Steve Rose, Heather and Blair, opted to run again. There was only one nomination received for each open office, Sam Fouse for RE, James Shanks for Secretary, Heather Clark and Morgan Mehler for Member-at-Large, so the Board accepted those nominations by acclamation, since there was no need to mail ballots and tabulate results. This will save the Region at least $375 in postage. The new officers will be installed at the annual meeting and awards dinner in Wilmington, at the Coastal Convention Center, Saturday, January 9, 2016.

NCR has 2 National Champions in Solo II

NCR congratulates Christina Peterson, champion in E Street Ladies, and Brittany "Nikki" Edwards, champion in F Street Prepared Ladies, for their achievement in the Solo National Championships at Lincoln, Nebraska, September 7-11, 2015. These two well-known competitors in our Region took top honors in those classes. But perhaps what’s even more amazing is that their two rivals, the runners-up who finished right behind them, are also Region members. Congratulations also to Jennifer Bedell in ESL and Jennifer Vance in FSPL for their fine showing as well. Details of their achievement can be found in the November issue of SportsCar (Vol. 73. No. 11) which should have been delivered to all members by this time.

Triangle Chapter Report - November 2015

The November Triangle Chapter meeting was a lively one, if only because we had some noisy interlopers who decided they just had to have part of the action even though they weren’t members of the club. Oh well, maybe they’ll join up after hearing our meeting discussion. LOL! (BTW, many thanks to Trish Deffenbaugh for quieting them down enough so I could be heard!).
