MEMBERSHIP NOTES

 

October - At the October monthly meeting we had two guests attend. Mark and his fiancée, Ashley, joined us. Mark owns an Bugeye Sprite that he has autocrossed. Wendell Campbell had hurt his shoulder and is undergoing therapy so that it will heal.

 

September - Corky and Naomi spent the week of Sept. 21-27 at Road America, Elkart Lake, WI as part of the race staff at the 2009 Sports Car Club of America National Championship Races. Corky was one of the Stewards and Naomi worked in Timing & Scoring. Below is an in car video from one of the races showing Eric Prill from Kansas racing his 1962 Lotus Super 7 to a 3rd place finish. His fellow competitors were Miatas and Acuras.

 

July - we had a good turn out for our monthly meeting. It turns out that that day was Wendell Campbell's birthday. We wanted to help him celebrate but he declined as he (and us) was tired of hearing the horn and siren that had been used 4 times that night for others celebrating their birthdays. It was decided that another rally will be hosted by the club - probably late July or in August. Watch this site for the date.

 

June 12 - Thanks to those members to turned out for the Question/Answer Rally on June 7. Even though there were a couple of errors on the route instructions all entrants finished the rally. We ended at Governors Pub and Grille in Moline where awards were given out. Awards were given to Geoff Hicks who finished in 1st place and Chuck Thompson who came in 2nd. It was decided to have another event similar to this in the future.

 

May - Corky Swanson has been spending time this racing season working SCCA road races. If you would like to see what a road race is about, you can contact Corky and enter the race track as his guest.

 

May - It is that time of the year to renew your membership dues. You will be receiving a notice from the VBCC Membership Chairman notice.

 

April - The club has a new member who joined because of club members having their cars on display at one of the Cruise In events.
