    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    So the little red hen said "who will help me make bread?" The cow said " I would help but I get very tired if I have to work and it would probably damage my ability to enjoy the bread when it was done". The dog said " I would help but I am pretty sure I am allergic to bread until after it is...

    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    4) Andy: "This incentive is a soft cost and non-recurring, so it would have minimal impact on the clubs. It would be non-recurring because, hopefully, our product would, after a first bite, sell itself. (This is how most promotions work, of course.) If the product does not sell itself, then we...

    Bruce - Thanks for your approximately 1/249th of Conference driver's opinions. Convince another approximately 124 ICSCC licensed drivers (hope we get an increase over last year regardless) or their representatives to agree with your opinion and you will have the opportunity to pass a rule that...

    Finalized 2021 Race Schedule

    Never count the small number of NWMS people working their heinies off out. I'm sure they will continue to fight until there is absolutely no hope in their effort to hold their scheduled racing event. I'm sure they are exploring every avenue to get the track open for their race and if they...

    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    I definitely agree with you on a couple of your points Steve - I would like to find a way to drive a lot more conversational traffic back to this forum as it used to be a better, if still imperfect, way to get much needed input from the membership to leadership. I also have severe misgivings...

    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    Steve, I respect your right to your opinion but arguing against someone who doesn't have a vote on the E-Board (me!) who took the time to REPORT the decision seems a bit futile. Everyone involved places different levels of importance on different aspects of this complicated issue. It's great...

    New License Tiers (ARR vs. IRR)

    Without sounding like a broken record, I find it somewhat amusing that things like this are worded as if people are suddenly surprised that they have exposed a conspiracy where "Mr. Conference" is doing nefarious things like stealing candy from babies and pushing the elderly into traffic behind...

    If you have the DOT physical required to legally operate a commercial 18 wheel truck and trailer combo on public roads it is very compatible with our racing physical and I have reviewed and approved those in the past. If you have a military or pilots physical we have reviewed those and accepted...

    Yep - there is the potential for a bit more change in our forms than usual so we took the 2019 versions down for a very important yet simple reason; They are 2019 forms and it is 2020. Last year the license registrar received far too many 2018 forms with the date crossed off and 2019 written...

    Spokane and NWMS

    Just wanted to say thanks for the great hospitality in Spokane from a small number of volunteers who worked really hard to put on a great event. I was born and raised in Spokane and try to support their race whenever I am able. There is really a small town friendliness at that race that is a...

    [For Sale] Anyone looking for a project?

    Those that know me can vouch that I am a bit of a car hoarder but I have finally run out of room for all of my projects. In order to keep them all straight I have found it expedient to give each of my cars an appropriate name. I have been slowly working on a C4 Corvette project in the back of...
