This is an official invite to attend a club meeting that will determine the path forward for 2018. Car count for 2017 was too low to maintain credibility and attendances for club meetings/events have been on a continual decline. A Meeting has been set up prior to the banquet for the 2017 season on October 14th at the Poodle Dog Restaurant at 5PM. The agenda for the meeting will officially be posted very soon. Topics of discussion will revolve around how to bring the club back to life with the enthusiasm of old. This will take some major revamping to accomplish and will include some major rule changes so that we can open up new opportunities for new cars, owner/drivers to join the ranks of the Super 4 Late Models. New members are the life blood to survive and we need everyone’s input to achieve this task.
The first of two meetings will be about establishing cause for the decline. If you parked the car because of one reason or the other that was solely based off from the current rules, general business practices, associated costs, or any other attribute that is controlled by the club we need your input. This is not going to be a typical end of year rules meeting. There are many other issues that need to be determined and discussed before we get to the rules. Once the relative and collaborative issues have been identified, then it will be time to discuss changes to rules, administration, strategies, negotiations etc. as applicable.
The second of two meetings: This is where every affiliate has the opportunity to give input on how to make the proper adjustments to the identified problems from the first meeting. The reason the meeting is split into two sessions is to give everyone time to discuss the solution among themselves, to other racers or affiliates and even other series or clubs to get ideas on what YOU would propose to fix the problem and be able to justify why.
This is the time to express your angers and concerns but I want everyone to understand that it is imperative we take the time and give the courtesy to other people you would expect from them. Let’s all be professional about how we conduct this meeting and not let it get into a whining and crying bitch session with no results in the end. It is important that we can all express what we feel in a professional manner and to also listen to others opinion fully without interruption, you will have the opportunity to express your opinion as the opposite if indeed that is how it is viewed.
PLEASE ATTEND, the future of the club is dependent on it!
