Rule changes and discussion---See rules #54 and #62
 
Good for the association---We need a small bladder tank for the pump, this needs to be done before the first race. There was a motion voted on. Places 1-5 will get trophies and pictures for the banquet, all others just get pictures. All voted YES.     PARK CLEAN UP to open track is March 18th and April 8th.  Park clean up to close track is October 28th.                                                                                 
We discussed making a rule to have on/off tether switch. At this point, it is up to the driver as to if they want to install one. This will be brought back up in the future.  Price for a tether switch is $12 to $35 dollars.  
 
M.I.S. trip--There seams to be little interest from this group of going. It will be brought back up at race meetings.
 
Saturday race--Portage Road General Baptist Church (Rich’s church) will again be providing the food for the Saturday race this year. We believe the schedule worked well last year. Meet the drivers at 4:00, racing starts at 4:30, meal about 5:30.
