And Happy New Year to you!
The NWRC annual planning meeting was held earlier today and there is news to share.
Our Friday Nighter series will have six rallies (April-October, skipping August) with Novice and SOP class Championships.
Also on the schedule are Rainier’s Raindrop and No Alibi touring rallies. Raindrop is always a nice Sunday drive. This year return rallymaster Bill plans to start in Duvall and finish in Stanwood. No Alibi (held on alternate years from Norwester) is a two-day romp using many fine paved and unpaved roads. Rallymasters Ed and Marvin plan for NA2024 headquarters to be Pendleton, OR.
With the schedule nailed down, we moved on to a review of Council accounting (we’re solvent). Friday Nighter entry fee will remain at $30 per car.
Before voting on the proposed rule changes, we discussed ORCA’s concern regarding the historical use of the term premarker in the rally community being substantially different from the signage proposed to be identified by this term. To resolve this concern the group selected another term. With that adjustment, the proposed changes were adopted by unanimous vote of all clubs present.
All 2023 board members were willing to continuing serving in 2024 and no new volunteers or nominations were made. The existing board members were retained by unanimous vote.
See you on the road!
