    February 2021 Zoom Meeting

    Membership, we have 31 total memberships, 20 single and 11 family roughly. Financial report, we have money. The club now has a points bearing credit card on which recurring expenses will be charged and paid off the following month. Business cards have been designed and approved, just need to order them. Hotspot data plan hasn’t been established, but we’re looking into prepaid options using our old hotspot. Event points, all events this year as of this moment are points events and will contribute to a day series and night series points championship. Novices, we will redouble our effort to provide support to novices through the use of volunteers willing to help coach new drivers in our sport. Also decided was that annual tech requirements will be reduced to 1 year instead of 2 years experience. Keith has offered to tow for the night series. Brian dickens has offered to tow for day series, Cam can tow if provided a tow vehicle. Car guy garage sponsorship, we were offered an affiliate link to a website based out of chicago offering higher end car person merchandise. We’ve countered to see if he will be willing to sponsor a spot on the trailer in return. Some simple bright officer shirts are being looked into to more easily identify officers and officials at an event. Quotes will be retrieved once we have a rough idea of sizes needed.

    How about being more definitive in the upcoming Meeting Minutes summaries i.e. profit/loss of recent events, equipment expenditures, etc. as well as the Club’s current overall financial condition?

    Want to increase numbers at Franklin but still have a maximum limit. The website was updated with the current covid policies. We have prepaid for many things and have a $640 charge coming up.

Want to visit where the donation for Franklin is being used next year before new contract. Talked about certain number of entries and possibly still holding event, charge at registration and offer no full refunds. Frank motioned to have 30 paying by Wednesday before event and decide about moving forward with event. It was tabled. Frank motioned to charge at registration and only offer refunds if HSCC cancels. It was voted on and passed. Tabled officers paying at the day series events. Going to reach out to Shannon about another promotion idea.

      OK, here is the cone update!

      In 2019 I ask Jeff Cox with ETR if HSCC could order some cones when ETR placed there next order. He said yes they would do that.
      Due to Covid we held off ordering in 2020 and waited to March of 2021 to place our order with (ETR) Jeff.
      Jeff Cox ordered 100 cones for HSCC on top of the annual ETR cone order for 2021.
      Yesterday I picked up in Bristol from the ETR Club 100 New Orange Cones.

      Thank you, Jeff Cox and ETR
