Hope to see everyone this Friday Night!
" No Alibi"
"No Alibi" will be held on the weekend of Nov. 13-14. It will be a straight, brisk TSD event, with classes for Novice, SOP, Equipped, Unlimited, and Classic (cars built prior to 1979, odometer and non-programmable calculators only, Kurtas allowed, no unlimited computers). Entry fee will be $75.00, with a $10.00 discount for registering before November 5. The start will be at Ken's Truck Town Restaurant, off I-90 at exit 34, just east of North Bend, WA. Overnight will be at the Airway Heights Super 8, just west of Spokane. Finish will be Sunday in Wenatchee. Studded snow tires are allowed (legal on Nov. 1) in case there's snow. There will be lots of gravel. Gretchen Jones has volunteered to be registrar for the west and Paul or Peggy Appel will be doing that duty for the eastern side of the state.
Updated / Correction:
The overnight motel for No Alibi has hanged to the Best Western Pepper Tree Inn (800-799-3933)! Rooms will be $65.00 for two beds two people. I'm reserving a block of 25 rooms. Rallyists will be paying for their own rooms. The rooms have microwaves, refrigerators, and VCRs. The restaurants are closer as well. The Super 8 wanted $60.00 each, and they aren't as nice.

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.
I do have some thoughts on this subject! The Club and the sport has to sell it's self. This has to start with telling the Northwest what rally of all kinds is about. (Promotion) A bunch of cars TSD and PRO come together at a local car dealer. The car dealer pays for the food. We then do everything we can do to get folks to stop in. Once they are in we show them our cars and a few videos. Educating them to the joys of the sport. Before hand we set up a fun run, and cookout for the next weekend. We then invite everyone to the next weekend events.
What would it take to get your involved?
I care very much! I have some ideas there too; One thought
I do have is this. Some informal role playing training. Some real hands
on type stuff. Where we could play like we have a stage set up (though
it is only in someone's back yard) And have folks working all the posts
that take training.
Do you like the new look of the WAG?
Yes I do...
Is their anything new and/or old that you would like to see added?
If it saves any money you don't have to send me mine in the mail. I
get it online that is all I need.
