March 11 & 12

On March 11, the ERC will be hosting a WCMA open lapping event at Roy’s Lake.  We will be split into two run groups – AM and PM.  You can buy your AM sessions here, and your PM sessions here.  Tech forms can be downloaded and printed here: March 11 Lapping Reg Form, if you’d like to fill out your form ahead of time.  Please pre-register if you are planning on coming, you can chose to pay on site if that is more your style, but letting us know helps us decide whether to run or not!

On March 12, the ERC will be hosting Rallycross Championship Event #3.  You can purchase your event here, and if you’re a keener with your registration form, it’s here: March 12 Reg Form.  Don’t forget to sign the back!

We’re really looking forward to a great weekend on the ice.  Be sure to dress warmly and join us out at the track. This will be our last Ice event for the season, so take advantage while you can!

AGM Update

On February 8, we held our AGM at the ERC Clubhouse.  We had a really good turn out, and are thankful for everyone who came out.  Please review the meeting minutes:

The election results for the 2017 Board of Directors is as follows:

*Dave Sharp was nominated and accepted the position as Vice President at the AGM, however has resigned since the AGM.  This position will be filled at the March General Meeting, and we will start the nomination process closer to that date.

Banquet Update and RCC Events #1 & 2

Who is excited for the Annual Year End Banquet at Blackjack’s Roadhouse, and the first two Rallycross Events of the season?  I know that we are!

Banquet tickets are now for sale in our shop.  They are $30 each, and that gets you dinner, and door prize tickets.  Please invite your friends and family to come and share this awesome meal with you, and see you (hopefully) get some awards or prizes!  There will be a cash bar open at 6 pm, and dinner will start at 7 pm.  Blackjacks has offered us a shuttle service, if there are groups of 8 people who would like to be dropped off in a common location.  Please talk to Mike Thorn to pre-arrange your shuttle if you desire one.

We will be selling our 2017 memberships during the banquet, if you have not purchased yours yet.

Rallycross Championship Events #1 January 29 and #2 February 12 are also in our shop.  We will be returning to Roy’s Lake for some exciting and slippery fun!

Also important: We will be having our January General Meeting on January 11th at the ERC Clubhouse.  The meeting starts at 6:30, and we will be discussing new bylaws, the future of our rallycross facilities, sponsorship of our group, and other exciting topics.

Our Annual General Meeting will be held on February 8th at 6:30 pm.  We will be electing our 2017 Board of Directors, and looking at new bylaws for 2017.

Thank you!

Thank you to all our members and competitors who participated in our 2016 year.  With our final events in the books, we are extremely grateful to our competitors, who came out regardless of weather, track and vehicle conditions; our volunteers, without whom we just wouldn’t exist; and our sponsors, who have stepped up to the plate when we needed it most.  We had a spectacular season, and we owe it all to all of you.

We want to wish you Happy Holidays, and hope to see every one out for our Year End Banquet in January, and our AGM in February.

Cheers!

Driver’s Wanted!

Are you coming to play this weekend at Events 12 & 13?  We’ll be having commentary provided over our FM broadcast, and we’d love to feature you!  The ERC is humbling requesting that any driver wishing to participate fill in the following Driver Profile, highlighting your skills, abilities, and best stories.

Are you a newbie?  Fill in one so we can get to know you better, even if your racing experience has been “trying to get to the Costco check out lane with no line before every soccer mom in the place gets there”.

We have both a print and write by hand option, or a fill in on your computer/device and print option.

See you tomorrow morning!

Weekend Update!

Even though the cold weather is challenging, we will be going ahead with our Double Header this weekend.  We’re rallyists, after all.  Unless there is a much colder shift at the end of the week, we will be continuing with our event.

All marshal stations will be vehicle-accessible, and we’re hoping to keep you in your cars as much as possible. There will be heated tents for shelter.  We will be broadcasting our event through local FM radio, and there’s always Blackjack’s for soul-warming hot food and drink.

Anyone who has an hour or two to spare Friday night, we could use a few more hands getting set up.  Please contact us for more details.

See you soon!

Frigidly yours,

The ERC Board of Directors
