REPORTS FROM –
RACE DIRECTOR – Rick brought up the possibility of a ruling regarding cutting buoys to avoid collision during a race. This is to be discussed under new business.
NEW BUSINESS – We had a discussion in relation to exceptions to running boats that are not actually in the class being run at that particular time. George is to write up a proposal for this rule. Another possible rule which the Pres. will write up a proposal for is in the case where a boat cuts a buoy in an obvious attempt to avoid an impending collision during a race. This would be used to excuse the driver from the penalty lap and would be called by the race director or corner marshals.
Another discussion was in relation to a rule change in the UL19 class regarding allowing the use of any prop.
Mike P. to write up a proposal for this change.
Mike R. brought up the fact that there is storage in the Fenney Recreation area which is available to several
clubs operating down there. We would be looking for a place to store the club’s rescue boat. Bob B. to check
President Bob brought up the fact that his garage is packed at the present time with much of the club’s
equipment. In relation to that – on Thursday, September 17th, several volunteers will go to Bob’s house
to attempt to cut down the amount of paraphernalia associated with recoil boats.
George M. brought up that he is looking for volunteers to work on what would be a community service project.
This involves removing some windows from a private home that is being transformed into a church. This is on
Tuesday, September 15th. Several people volunteered. If you are interested in helping call George.
OLD BUSINESS – NONE.
