During the 2014 racing season, as a result of unplanned expenditures during the 2013 season, we managed to lose some money, so we were interested in recovering as much as possible during the 2014 season, and we did recover most of it. Since we are a nonprofit, it’s not easy to accomplish this. Many things conspired to allow us to cover some of that money, and some of what we learned will help to control cost of operations in the future as they normally increase. The March race was canceled because of track paving operations, and since we traditionally lose money on that race, that was in our favor. There were many other occurrences that allowed us to save money and some follow.
We saved money by coming up with more effective and cheaper methods to advertise. We saved large amounts of cash not advertising as much in national magazines. We planned to run only one ad, but that didn’t work out when Grassroots Motorsports ran a second ad we didn’t want, but we have received an ad for the 2015 season at no charge as a result, thus breaking even on that cost.
The North Carolina Region’s Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner was held on Saturday evening, January 10th, at the Coastline Conference and Event Center in downtown Wilmington. 93 Members attended. Kudos to Elizabeth Severt and John Byers, who did a fabulous job of organizing the event!
The first item on the agenda was a brief business meeting, conducted by RE Rex Deffenbaugh, who gave his annual “State of the Region” report and introduced the Board members who were in attendance, including the only new member on the Board, Assistant RE Mike Spencer.
