 RASC News

Minutes of the May Meeting -Reported by Mark Nolte, Secretary.
Meeting called to order by President Vince Plancich at 7:45pm.  Minutes were approved as printed in the April Wishbone Alley Gazette. Treasurer's Report: Since expenses for Raindrop were presented at the  meeting, the bank balance wasn't reported. Raindrop transactions will possibly net $58.

The status of the Post Office box was discussed. There was no news from NWRC.

ORCA has settles on a June 27 date for a rally  called "Rally Round the Puddle". It was noted that this conflicts with the  Oregon Trail PRO Rally.

The new "SCCA News" looks good; an ad for Raindrop was in the latest issue. No report available on bidding for a banner.

The Wild West Pro Rally will be headquartered in Shelton, since Little Creek  Casino won't be sponsoring the event. The Shelton Inn will be HQ, as used in  the past. Mark Nolte will head up the RASC "worker contribution", and expects to request workers meet at 9AM at the Shelton Park and Ride, next to Highway  101. (Since amended to 7:30am-MN). We have the usual stage, normally known as  "RXR".

The "Wenatchee Rally" was brought up. Roy says it's under control.

Jerry Hines showed up with an Alcan Report: Tim Paterson, Ken Knight, Tim Arnold, Ken Maytag, and R. Dale Kraushaar have all contacted him concerning  special vehicles. These would be sponsored, to one extent or another, by  manufacturers or dealers. Jerry has 35 potential entrants for the winter  event.

Raindrop- President Vince said he had a good time, and thinks everyone else  did. The Sweep crew made a wrong turn (who said this was lost in the  Secretary's notes).  Nolte thanked all for the help, pointing out that Terry  Simons had the scores ready nearly as soon as she arrived at the finish. It was discussed whether to send a "thank you" note to Alley Chevrolet.

The SOVREN hillclimb, previously announced for October, has been postponed a  year. Vince learned this on a visit to Mary!
hill (Goldendale).

Pete Shelton asked if anyone was interested in T-Shirts with the RASC  name/logo. General response seemed to depend on the price.

Nolte passed a copy of the Olympus schedule around. This was from the Web  site, and the same as available at Doo Wop III/IV.

Friday Niter: Kirk Simons is scouting roads apparently by taking the long way  home from work. He'll also work on a budget. Vince volunteered to do dash  plaques. Trophy designs were discussed, with ceramic tiles being a likely

Meeting adjourned at 8:30.

After the meeting, we all met in the parking lot to admire Vince's new, red Alfa Romeo Guilia.

Wild West:  Workers meet at 7:30 am at the Shelton Park n' Ride., Saturday  morning. Need 10 scare up 10 RM's.

News- don't think I'' volunteer to put together any more Stages- this "o'dark thirty a.m." stuff isn't any fun.
