Last weekend we had a joint event with Western Ohio Region (WOR) at Traders World on July 25 & 26. Everyone needs to thank WOR for helping us resolve a conflict with our originally scheduled date a week earlier which became the date for the Peru Championship Tour at Grissom Aeroplex. Out of the graciousness of their heart they agreed to let us move our event to what was their weekend and move their event to Saturday at Traders World! Along that line, we had 20 Cincy members attend the Peru Champ Tour to enjoy the grippy concrete with a couple first timers and many of us who regularly travel to other events. Congrats go to David O’Maley who set fastest time of day both raw and PAX!
For those who attended the joint WOR/Cincy events last weekend, you know it went very well even with the sweltering temperatures. WOR hosted a great event on Saturday with 142 entrants – by far the largest turn out on a Sat yet! Sunday, we had 154 entrants. Everyone got six runs both days on challenging and very different courses on Sat and Sun designed by Nathan Roberts and were done running by 3:30! I want to personally thank all of you for playing within the state COVID guidelines, saw plenty of masks, hand sanitizer being used, and social distancing. Thank you
Our next events are a Novice 101 School on Aug 15 and Points Event 6 on Aug 16. The Novice school is intended for novices (no matter what class you run) and will provide instruction on work assignments, tech inspection, what to do to be ready for an event, driver position, walking the course, and of course driving skills. Primary instruction will be with instructors outside the vehicles to comply with COVID guidelines. We will have an entry cap of 50 students for the school, please sign up early!
Going back to the large Cincy group traveling to events outside Cincy, the CAM Challenge is back at Peru next weekend, Aug 7-9. You do NOT have to have a CAM car to compete, they have a “worker” class where you can run both days (9 runs over the two) for $40 but you will need to stay and work the CAM Challenges on Sunday afternoon.
In response to recent COVID-19 concerns, we were holding last few Monthly Board Meetings on Zoom. For July, we are inviting general members to our Zoom Meeting. There are limited number of seats available, so please register yourself on CincySCCA.MotorsportReg.com to receive the zoom link.
The meeting starts at 7:30PM on July 21st.
If you have any questions regarding zoom meetings, please contact us through website/email/Facebook.
We look forward to see you all in our virtual meeting room!
We are now offering the Speed Waiver at our Solo events.
We have a great success with the Speed Waiver at our Point Event #4 on June 21st. Thank you for those who tried it out, and hopefully you enjoyed the simplicity and quickness at the gate, as much as we do!
When you register for our Solo event (We are hoping to expand this to our other programs in the future), you will find the link to the speed waiver under “Waiver” section of the registration page, as well as on your confirmation email. The Speed Waiver will only be available two weeks prior to the event date. We will send out a reminder email once the Speed Waiver for the event is available.
Once Speed Waiver for the event is opened, please visit the link you received, and complete the sign up process. (You will need a Smartphone with Text/Data Plan – Fee may apply)
You will then be provided a screen that looks like your photo ID, and also a text message with the link to the page.
On the event day, you need to open the page (or screen shot works as well), and show to the waiver staff at the gate, and receive a wristband.
This will reduce the time it takes at the gate as you will no longer need to sign the paper waiver at the gate.
Please be prepared before you arrive to the gate, so that you are ready to show us the screen shot or waiver page.
Annual waiver is still available through SCCA, and if you do have one already, there is no need to sign the speed waiver.
We will have the paper waiver available at the site as well.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
After seeking a possible online general meeting, due to the technical/cost difficulties, we unfortunately will only holding a board member meeting for the May, and canceled our general meeting.
However, we are open to any questions you may have to our regions, and happy to discuss during the board meeting and publicize the answers afterwards. Also our meeting logs are available to those who would like.
For the questions, inquiry for the meeting log or any other request to the region board members, please email RE@CincySCCA.com.
