June RE-Port

The Cincinnati Region SCCA 2017 Season is in full swing!!

The last couple of months we have had our kickoff SOLO, Rally and Rallycross events. On our website (www.cincyscca.com) you will read some great event recaps from all of our programs and the updated 2017 event schedules!

We have recently had some great turnouts for our monthly General Membership meetings and our next one is Tuesday, June 20th, 8pm at the Mill Race Banquet Center (1515 W Sharon Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45240). This will be an important meeting as the membership present at the meeting will be voting on the proposed changes to our club by-laws. The proposed changes will basically update our by-laws to be in conformity with our current means of electronic publishing of events of our club (the website) and notifications to our membership via email messages and Facebook updates. Hope to see you at an event or upcoming meeting!

Thanks,
Tony

Rally Report – June, 2017

Rabbit Hash Revisited is just around the corner. Get geared up! The next rally is June 17th. Details are being finalized now, but we know we will start around 10AM at the Kroger parking lot near Walton Towne Center, just east of the Walton, KY exit on I-75. It will run about 100 miles through scenic Northern Kentucky and end at Longnecks Sports Grill (same as the June event last year) at the I-275 Hebron exit.

This is a Tulip Rally, with illustrations of intersections as well as worded instructions and callback mileages to keep you on course. Our Rally Master for the event, once again, is Lee Grimes, who knows these roads like the back of his hand. With his familiarity and the abundance of hills and curves that Kentucky offers, this should prove to be an outstanding driving adventure.

Registration is OPEN. Please sign up online whether you want to pay in advance or the day of the event so we’ll have a ballpark idea of how many to expect. Bring some friends, member or not, who haven’t run with us before and save $5 on your registration fee (one discount per new car/driver/navigator unit).

Go to Rabbit Hash Revisited Road Rally on MotorSportReg.com for more details, general instructions (coming soon) and to register. Questions can be directed to cincysccarally@yahoo.com. Drop us a line if you’re not already on the email list to receive notifications for this and future events.
