A proposal for the Scholarship fund Raising for 2012 was discussed. A month long lottery using a states pick 3 numbers was suggested. The scholarship committee is asking that each member sell 5 sheets of numbers at $10 per sheet. This will raise approximately $8500. Winning numbers will pay $100 per day. This is projected to start at the swap meet and numbers or monies will need to be turned in at the June Summit Race 2012. The WKC lottery will last the month of August.
The following is the proposed 2012 Summit Point availability dates:
- SPR Shen Apr 21 or May 5th

** Not sure that we will be sharing any dates other than talking with John Heckman and he states he is with us. However, because of a Pocono event he may not be able to attend the April race but will consider
*** for Shen Apr or May race we can have a half day practice and a half day test and tune at 1⁄2 price
– Look at running counterclockwise and possible bowl area
The 2012 Club championship’s and club class trophies was discussed. The possibility of requesting a trophy at one race and made available at the next was discussed. During the 2011 season a major loss in revenue was obtained due to trophies. Discussed the possibility of saving some money on monthly races and add it to the end year championship and have better awards provided, i.e. driver suits, helmets etc.
Non-members were asked to be excused from the meeting so that the Treasurer Report could be given with up-to-date Profit & Loss.
