 RASC News

Minutes of the June Meeting -Reported by Mark Nolte, Secretary.
    Called to order at 7:47 by President Vince Plancich. Minutes of May read and approved.  Terry Simons will use the mailbox for Gazette return address, rather than her home address; mostly so it will get used.
    NWRC- NWRC has asked for help (workers) for the July Friday Niter. Kirk Simons responded affirmative, Mike Jones said he'd try. Pete Shelton (absent) could probably help make up the crew. It was noted that Kirk Simons won SOP at the May Friday Niter, with Pete Shelton also placing. Mark Simons appeared and got 3rd.
   SCCA- we were all awed that the recent Susquehannock Trail PRO-Rally had to turn away entries, since it was limited to 85 cars. Nolte covered the upcoming Wild West, saying that it looked like we had barely enough people to cover the 24-mile stage.
   Friday Niter- Mark Simons has pretty much settled on a route, and is exploring places to end the September event, probably at North Creek. He's planning on 4 CP's.  Trophies were discussed, with the idea of using small, toy cars on plaques being investigated. Vince volunteered that he had some tiny models of antique cars that he was prepared to part with- bagged and ready.
   Wenatchee Rally: Roy says its under control. The exact date was lost, but we agreed that it was going to happen the first weekend of November, not October. Discussion followed whether to reuse a Rainier rally name (Harvest Moon?), or let Paul Appel pick out a new name for the rally.
   Rainier Banner- Vince said he wanted it for the Wild West. He'd have it ready and deliver to the Jones to take to the rally.    Jerry Hines reported that the lawyer who he deals with needed us to renew our trademarks and state status. This would cost about $50.
   Alcan Rally: A letter from Alcoa had been received asking that the "Alcan" name not be used. Advice from counsel was not to respond, since litigation would be expensive. Jim Elder, the Alcan Press Liaison, has talked to Rod Hall about a Alcan entry. Gene Henderson contacted Jerry about a 3-car Subaru team, the 3rd car with Henry Joy and Katy Wood (a.k.a. Mrs. Russ Kraushaar). A rental car is being arranged for an Italian entrant. Isuzu had contacted Jerry concerning their "Alcan" Rodeo, which he is still using for Alcan tasks. He volunteered to dispose the vehicle and send them the proceeds. So it is for sale. Jerry concluded by offering a 1995 Plymouth Voyager for sale, new transmission, for $9000. Lucas needs seats for his Omni, but can't afford Recaro's.
   Vince reported that the SOVREN Historic races at SIR were July 4 weekend, and everyone should attend- it's a good show.
   Jerry Hines has volunteered to host our August meeting, with a barbecue at his home. The date we agreed on was the 22nd. This will replace the normal August (Monday) meeting.
   Meeting adjourned at 8:55.  We then went to the parking lot to look over Jerry's new, big Ford F250  truck.(white).isher


Question 1:
At our last meeting we had a discussion on what would it take to get more people involved in  joining Rainier Auto Sports Club; either by attending meetings, helping organize an event, or working.

What would it take to get your involved?

Question 2:
Do you like the new look of the WAG?   Is their anything new and/or old that you would like to see added?

We would love to get your feedback on this question?  Please forward an comments and/or suggestion to our  Publisher.  Terry Simons 4029 228th ST SE  Bothell, WA 98021.  We would love to get your comments.

For those of  you who haven't received a newsletter in the last two months or so I'm sorry.  We were trying to get the cost down and those of you who had e-mails address. We were emailing the WAG, but since so many ask for both. I'm having to send out both again.

Special Announcement - New Fall Rally
 There will be a new TSD rally on November 6-7 (tentatively, depends on the ClubRally schedule) in the Pacific Northwest called "No Alibi". It will start on Saturday in North Bend, Washington (east of Seattle on I-90), overnight in Airway Heights (just west of Spokane), and finish in Wenatchee, Washington on Sunday. No traps, just straight TSD, and LOTS of gravel. It's late enough in the year that we'll have some night sections, and early enough that we won't be snowed out (a little snow won't stop us, by the way. In fact, a little snow will just make it more interesting!). This event will be put on by Rainier Auto Sports Club. So come on out, we'd love to see you there!
