  • St. Cyr’s Expectations and Improvements- They are requiring that we use the lower entrance, (weather permitting) and driving up to the pitting areas of the track. Rick would like manual labor help with the following projects; Finishing metal stairs for drivers stand. Building the walkway around the south sweeper. Building a new announcers booth with unobstructed views of the track and pitlane. Fixing the scoring loop. The St Cyr’s and On-time Services have provided a lot of essential amenities and equipment to help RCSR keep TZRP in optimal shape. A request has been put in for the possibility of splitting the profits from the TZGP, roughly $1000.

 

It was moved and seconded to split the profits of TZGP 2016 with the St. Cyr’s.  The motion was unanimously approved.

RCSR Track Improvements and Responsibilities

We need new decking for the drivers stand at a rough cost of $400. Karen would like to see Race Central repainted $100

Our normal responsibilities to the track are; Porta Potty maintenance- $130 per visit, 2 drums of methanol for traction compound- $215 a drum, $430 total. ½ Barrel of Lane choice Traction compound- $375  

It was moved and seconded to approve track improvements and responsibilities expenses.  The motion was unanimously approved.

  • Trailer Maintenance-Probably can get away with a general cleaning of the trailer this year again

Discussion regarding Kings Kruze took place.  This race relates directly to the need for trailer maintenance.  It was moved and seconded to cancel the Kings Kruze race for this year.  Motion passed with all in favor and one abstention.  Ryan will notify Richard Donavon and Gateway Community Church.

2015 Income & Expenses

  • 2015 Started with $3825
  • 2015 Member & Race fees $965
  • TZGP Profit $1934
  • Total $6724
  • 2015 Expenses $3791
  • 2015 End Of year $2965

 

Last year’s budget was discussed.  It was moved and seconded to approve income and expenses as presented.  The motion unanimously passed.

  • Tire and fuel sales will be made through Rick- He will also take PayPal but we must add 5% fee to total.

Ryan will manage all sales through Rick.  No action was taken on this item.

  • Points, Participation Series race? Would we like to have a Points system and or a participation raffle with an end of year cash payout?

A series idea discussion was led by Jeff Holt.  A motion was made and seconded to have Jeff organize and implement a points/participation series.  The motion passed with one objection.

  • Member Dues & Race Fees- Currently $20 for RCSR membership and $5 race fees, unlimited classes. $10 for Non-members. Do we change this to a $5 Racing fee and $5 per class Participation fee for end of year Raffle?

 

The item was discussed, but no action was taken.  The points/participation series will have to be developed before we make decisions on race fees.  Dues and fees will remain the same as last year until the points/participation series is developed.  Then, the issue will be revisited.

  • TNT- Will be discontinued this year. Rick has mentioned some possible play nights on some Fridays

A motion was made and seconded to discontinue TNT for this year.  Motion passed unanimously.
