The January meeting minutes were approved and seconded as presented.
Jerry Stoughton presented the treasurer’s report. The club has approximately $9000.00 in its treasury.
Annual tech will be held on March 4th at Enerpulse at 2451 Alamo SE. Thanks to Steve Marino for letting SWMS use the facility again. We will start at 10:00 and end at 3:00. Hot dogs, hamburger, chips and drinks will be served.
Drivers will need to have an annual tech sticker in their logbook as well as on the car.
The crash and burn school will be held separately and at a later date. The time and place will be advertised in advance.
The Arroyo Seco event planning is well on its way. Bob Lee has secured rooms at a Deming motel for $54.00 per night. The concession stand will not be open but food can be purchased at restaurant across the freeway and they will deliver. The track will provide one worker that will do corner working and provide flat tow. Our volunteers will receive $150.00 per day to offset their expenses
Dirt Speed LLC and SWMS are in final negotiations and a contract will be signed in the near future. Karts will continue to run with SWMS with a few modifications that the track management wanted in the contract. Youth karts will run and will not have a per kart charge from the track. An additional event will be run at Sandia Speedway the weekend of 14-15 October. This event will be run by the track and staffed by our volunteer staff.
There will not be an official SWMS banquet this year since we didn’t compete locally in 2016. In its place we will be having a potluck hosted by Janice and Bill Swope. This will be held in their backyard. I am sure Bill will have his cars on display for all to see. More to come on this at a later date.
Jerry Stoughton reported on our insurance for the year. The policy will be issued shortly and will cost approximately the same as previous years.
A move was made and was seconded that we need to move to a new website host. Nick Arenella is going to look into making this happen. He will report out on the progress at the next meeting.
John Slenes reported that we had 988 views on Facebook. We need to encourage on our event chairs to do write-ups that John can post on our Facebook account.
David Swope gave out a flyer for the “Seis de Mayo” car show to be held in the Barley Room parking lot. SWMS would like to have a display of at least four cars at the show. This is a charity event with all proceeds going to the UNM Children’s Hospital. Larry Pittsley will be coordinating this for the club. Contact him if you would like to include your car.
Next meeting will be March 28th.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:35.
