This thread is a placeholder for the HSCC meeting minutes.
We finished strong financially at the end of the year. Banquet had a good turn out of just over 70 people. The website and constitution are getting updates. New point system was brought up and will be revisited with examples of what last season would have looked like. Trailer clean out will be scheduled before first race. A new mic may be needed and will be tested during the cleanout of the trailer. Live timing has been tested and works. Next step is to test it with our timing lights and get a usable link on the website. The cellular data use is being evaluated to see if more data is needed for the hot spot to run live timing. New cones and tech stickers still need to be ordered.

Both Autocross events went well. Don’t have exact numbers for finances on TRSS school. Need to work on getting local sponsors next year for the TRSS school. Keith made a motion for advertisement to be put on trailer in exchange for fixing the crease on the trailer. Was 2nd by Chris and approved by votes. Cody made motion for new flags to draw attention to events. Was 2nd by Keith and approved by votes. Talked about how to enforce correct number size/color on vehicles. Safety talk of making sure workers are told to look at all areas and be mindful of where they are placed. Only had to buy a few items to finish hanging shelves in the storage unit. Future tech stickers are being stored away. Ag Center can’t offer us our normal lot on the July 4th event because of horse trailers that will be parked in the lot. John motioned to have July 4th event at Franklin if the AG Center doesn’t have a big enough lot to substitute. It was brought up that the car sounds might disturb the horses. Chris was going to call the AG Center. It was mentioned to buy a new computer for timing.

Treasurer report – Revenue was over $2000 for the NS5, net was around $1240. We should be fine on money for the remainder of events.
Autocross report – NS5 had 81 attendees, things seemed to run well. Timing ran mostly without glitches, though a few fixes are in the works to prevent any further problems that could crop up.
Constitution and bylaws have been updated on the website. Reimbursement check for the TRSSS event is on its way. Facebook ads for the last NS produced 40 responses, with an estimated 20 or so people coming to the event as a result. In total, they reached 2168 people for only ~$20. We’ll plan to continue ads, spending double on day series events in order to attract more people. Daniel reached out to Darryl “Killboy” Cannon of…well, Killboy. We’ll plan to pass our schedule along to them for next year so that they can post it on their calendar since they’re just an hour away. We may also look into doing some cross promotion with them.
Club flag project is being finished up, Shannon is controlling that project. We’re looking into doing stickers and/or t-shirts with TCS Printing. Keith is going to look into that and report back. NCAC is coming up soon. Parking should be fine up to about 100 entrants. Officers and volunteers will be needed to help run the event.
Officer nominations will be coming up soon, many key positions will be available. Luke will not be available to serve as treasurer, and Cameron and Cody will also likely not be available for autocross chair duties.

We had a successful day and night series. Still waiting on TRSS school check. Got some timing support and different tricks to try for our timing system. Been having problems with it. We got the new flag in. A cooler is now in the trailer. A file cabinet was donated to hold tech stickers, waiver forms, etc which will be placed in the storage building. Discussion of end of year
trophies should be coming up. Still looking for a good deal on a club laptop. It is still 2 drops per series this year for points. Motion was made by Shannon for autocross rules explaining point determination to be 20% of events and round up to determine drops for year 2020. Cameron 2nd the motion made by Shannon. Any discrepancies in points can be addressed by messaging an officer. Club t-shirt cost is on message board for discussion. It has been brought to attention that there aren’t as many repeat novices at the day series. Idea was to email novices for future events. Annual tech will be ready to sell 1st event next year.

NCAC event was profitable and the free food was a hit with everyone. The second day series for this month had a loss. The new banner grabbed the attention of a couple people to come watch in Franklin. Need to talk to Shannon about how Facebook advertising is going. At the next day and night series, Cameron will ask for a show of hands who was reached by social media to see if it is reaching people to come out to race and/or spectate. Buying a new computer has been tabled for now. The hotspot needs to be upgraded and the account changed over to Chris’s name. ETR is willing to work with us to order cones but we will need to let them know by next summer, at the latest August or September, so that we can order the same time they do. Advertising on the trailer for next year was brought up to be the same price and charge more for the bigger spaces. Points will be changed on the website for next year. The points will also be accumulated on our AxeWare software. The TRSS check is on its way. We need to order trophies sooner this year. Trophy decision to be decided at next car club meeting. Keith will contact Two Guys Pizza about the January 12th and 19th date that was proposed in the meeting. Keith and Patti will take charge of planning the banquet. They will also purchase the prizes for attending the monthly meetings. It will be $10 per person and $25 for a family of three or more. Nominations Will be taken on the club’s Facebook page. The current nominations are as follows:
President: Daniel S.
Vice President: John A.
Communications: Shannon N.
Membership: David S., Patti Y.
