Hello Cincinnati SCCA members & friends! HAPPY FALL Y’ALL! As summer has now officially turned the corner into cooler temperatures, you will see some great announcements about our future activities from our event chairs in this Cinchronizer! And I have a few items of my own to review.

First, it’s election time! As always our October Membership/Board meeting was held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month on October 19th at Shooter’s in West Chester. Our October meeting was the nomination meeting to come up with the ballot for the election of our new board for 2022 from those in attendance. The ballot for the 2022 Cincinnati SSCA Board are:

  • Region Executive – Tony Brown
  • Assistant Region Executive – Gordon Benson
  • Treasurer – Christy Graham
  • Secretary – TBD
  • Board Member At Large (2 year term 2022-23, 3 elected)
    • Jack Burns
    • Jim Clark
    • Tom Thomlinson

Our election meeting is at our next Membership/Board meeting on November 16th at 7pm at the Shooter’s Sports Grill at 4981 Winners Circle, Liberty Township, OH 45011. Even though there are no contested positions for next years board, we’d still like to see members at our next meeting to learn more about our club operations and possibly learn about a role they would like to fill in the future. And the wings are pretty good as well!

On a more somber note, earlier in October one of our long time members Tony Horning passed away. Tony was a dedicated 49-year member of Cincinnati SCCA and had a long storied membership with our club. He was active in many activities over the years and also served as Region Executive for our club. Personally I first met Tony almost 20 years ago when I first started volunteering up at our Mid-Ohio events in Driver Information at the base of the tower. He was a great teacher on those track operations I learned long ago. He was also awarded our clubs prestigious Joel Williams Award for 2004. He will be missed by many of our SCCA friends. Rest In Peace and Godspeed Tony.

Finally, our Awards Banquet is scheduled to return for 2022! After a year off due to Covid, we have secured the date of February 5th, 2022 at the Receptions in Fairfield. We look forward to seeing everyone and recognizing our members in person again! In the meantime, our last Member/Board meeting (and Election Day) is coming up on November 16th, hope to see you there!

Tony Brown – Cincinnati Region SCCA, Region Executive
