Hello Cincinnati Region SCCA Members & Friends! It’s wintertime and most of us have cold tires and engines yearning to get moving. But we have had some members recently venture south with some great success! Rob & Doris Bax spent some quality time in Florida as Rob championed his B-Spec Mini Cooper at SCCA Majors Events. With 2 races at Homestead-Miami Speedway he took away 1st & 3rd place trophies including winning a pole and a new track record! The following weekend at Sebring International Raceway brought a pair of highly contested 4th place finishes. If you had a chance to watch and listen to the broadcast on scca.com it was some exciting racing. Congrats Rob!

Also new this month you will find an article from our new Area 4 National Board of Director Dayle Frame! Dayle has offered to periodically update the regions in Great Lakes Division as to what is happening on the national level with his new responsibilities. We should look forward to this great new line of communication from our National Board representative.

The covid pandemic has recently reached some of our very dear members and friends. I want to extend well wishes to those on behalf of their friends here in Cincinnati Region and hope for a strong recovery. Spring will be here before we know it and I look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Stay safe and healthy,

Tony Brown
Cincinnati Region SCCA, R.E.

RE-Port: Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Cincinnati Region SCCA!

As we begin to see the light of 2021, we can reflect with a heavy sigh of somber reflection and the sobering reality of the year that was 2020. All of our lives have dramatically changed from what our hope and expectations were a year ago at this time. Our SCCA region was able to pull together and utilize the resourcefulness of our membership to still host Solo’s, Rally’s and a Road Race event with every obstacle imaginable to surpass. I’m very proud of our volunteers that stepped up into roles to make these events successful! The pandemic is not over and may not be for awhile, but we now have a road map to host responsible events and look forward to a fantastic 2021!
I hope everyone has a safe start to the new year and we look forward to announcing our 2021 Season very soon.
Happy New Year,

Tony Brown
Cincinnati Region SCCA – R.E.

Thank you everyone for your continued support of your club during these unprecedented times. The leadership provided by our event teams this year has been incredible. There is a quote I have hanging in my office by James Lane Allen that reads “Adversity does not build character… it reveals it“. This was proven true by the team we were fortunate to have this year that worked tirelessly to plan, organize and implement successful events for our membership in the face of the current pandemic. Let’s hope for an even better 2021!

Take care and see you soon!

Hello Cincinnati Region members and friends! I hope everyone has been able to have a safe and adventurous (as Covid will allow) summer so far. As we start to see the finish line of our 2020 event season, I would like to send a big thank you to all of you that have and been able to participate in one of our events this year be it solo, rally or autocross. And to those that are taking a breaking from 2020, rest assured that when the time is right and the pandemic is over we look forward to seeing EVERYONE again! And enough cannot be said for your region leaders and volunteers that organize and run our events, many hats off!

Your Cincinnati Board of Directors had our August meeting last month via Zoom on 8/18 and our plan is to have our next meeting on September 15th in the same manner. If you have any questions that you would like to have addressed by the board, please email them to me at re@cincyscca.com and we will answer and either reply back to you or post the answers on our Facebook page. Also, we will be discussing options at our next meeting regarding our 2021 election of officers which normally follows the process of nominations at our October meeting and Elections at our November meeting. Since we are under restrictions still for large gatherings we will talk about options for what we will/can do for this pandemic year. If you have heard from members of other surrounding regions, the plans for their 2021 officer elections (if they have them) are far and wide. We will keep you up to date and if you are interested in running for a position, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or a member of the board!

Thank you again to our Event Chairs and the volunteers that make our events a success! See you soon!

Hello Cincinnati Region SCCA members and friends! At the midpoinit of 2020 we are starting to roll along with some clarity on how the rest of the 2020 season will work out given the current state of our new normalcy in the world. Our Event Chairs will have some good updates in the following sections but I wanted to make note of the exciting news from our Road Racing department! Yes, the rumors are true and we are joint hosting a GLD Champ Series Event at Nelson Ledges! Registration is live on MSR for the racing event and we will soon have information for a Track Event/Testing Day on the Friday before. Exciting!

The Cincinnati SCCA BOD had our June meeting via ZOOM and we feel we might have mastered the technology enough to host our next meeting on July 21st in a town hall style event to allow for more participation. We will have more news to come as we await the most updated indoor group social distancing requirements to be updated by the Governor at the end of this week. Our current plan is to have a hybrid in-person/online meeting but we will have more information and details on that in the coming week.

As our 2020 season is finally getting an oportunity to get off the ground, I want to thank your dedicated Event Chairs, Board Members and countless and essential volunteers that make our events a possibility. Stay safe and see you soon!

Hello Cincinnati Region SCCA members and friends,

Hard to believe a month can move so fast but seem so slow. But here we are moving towards better days ahead of us with the scheduled re-opening of our Ohio economy. You will see many updates in this month’s Cinchronizer from our event chairs and I can promise you that even as I write this, the situations and schedules are very fluid as we look to follow the most recent state guidelines for events.

The Cincinnati Region BOD did have our monthly meeting for April via a ZOOM online meeting. I plan for us to have our next monthly meeting on May 19th again via ZOOM due to the expected social distance requirements and maximum meeting sizes (less than 10) to still be in place at that time. But the hope is to have the next meeting available for our members to possibly view and participate as well. We will update on that as we get closer, but please if you have any questions for me or the board do not hesitate to email or call us, our contact info is on our website CincySCCA.com .
Take care everyone, see you soon!

Tony Brown
Cincinnati Region, R.E.
