Old Business

New Jersey Motorsports Park
The Board toured the track. Fast track with plenty of run off and easy to get to. Major hotels are offered nearby. The Board is working with other groups including USSK. The Board is still working with the track on final numbers for entry, camping, etc.

Bernie Adamson
A club member opened discussion on the Bernie Adamson situation.
Bill Kassy explained that as a spectator and former president, Mr. Adamson’s actions not only affected the racers on the track, but the Club’s insurance. Mr. Adamson was contacted by three Board members on numerous occasions during the process and three times refused to comply. Therefore, the Board is holding to the decision and moving on to other club business.
The club members were invited to remain and discuss the matter individually.

Meeting was called to adjourn by Bill Kassy, second by Tom Conlon. Meeting was adjourned at 6:45pm.
