150 kph and Third Gear for the Corners!

The Driver’s Dynamics night of lapping at Shannonville’s Fabi Track saw some pretty impressive bits of speed for a first evening of cobweb shedding.

There was a Mustang in the capable hands of your VP coming up just shy of 100 mph on the straights as he said goodbye to some dry tires.  Add to this a Formula 1600 with your Director of Member Services at the wheel and one wasn’t sure where to look next!

While certainly the nicest looking car — a certain ’82 Porsche 928 — belonging to the Club’s Communications Director stayed in the parking lot, he’ll soon have something to lap with.  He hopes!

May Monthly Meeting Minutes

It seems apologies are in order.  We assumed that those in attendance for the lapping event were there not only to take advantage of the club discount but the meeting as well.  Nope.  So, if you arrived in a BMW at the appointed hour, I want you to send me an email:  curtisr57@gmail.com and we’ll make it right.

Discussion Items:

  • Volunteering at the Regional Autoslalom this coming weekend.  It’s not too late!
  • Discount program:  a 10 percent rebate is offered to Club members for three events this year including May 18’s Lapping Night (offered by Driver’s Dynamics), Friday, June 16’s Autoslalom (at Shannonville, offered by Driver’s Dynamics), and the aforementioned Regional Autoslalom.  (See details in previous posts.)
  • Banking:  we’ve taken possession of an order of T shirts for sale to club members and those attending the Regional Autoslalom.  Cost for each shirt is $20 each (total).  Needless to say, this has had a significant impact on our bank balance.  Other recent expenses include batteries for the FRS radios ($60) and wrist bands ($65).  These items should serve our needs going forward for some time.
  • Elections:  no takers for President, Director of Racing or Equipment Director.
  • New Business:  it looks like we will part with the storage shed used to store Club materials for use at Picton Airfield.  Stay tuned as we discuss and decide on how best to maximize the return on the Club’s investment.

A shout out to Jordan for briefing those who were in attendance that this wasn’t a hoax.  The truth is out there!  Thanks, Jordan, you’re my hero.

Picton Regional Autoslalom Comemerative Club T Shirt

There will be t-shirts offered for sale at the Regional Autoslalom at the end of the month.  It features a tribute to Picton Airfield.  They’ll be sold for $20 all-in.  If you can’t wait, give the Club a shout at st.lac.club@gmail.com and we’ll do our best to get something for you beforehand or after.

It should have featured this but I was out-voted:

Boo hoo!!!  Wha-aaah!!
