Nominations for RE, Secretary and the two Member-at-Large positions (currently Held by Heather Powers and Blair Stitt) for terms beginning in 2016 were due by the end of the November Board meeting, Wednesday, November 18th. None of the Current office holders, Rex Deffenbaugh, Steve Rose, Heather and Blair, opted to run again. There was only one nomination received for each open office, Sam Fouse for RE, James Shanks for Secretary, Heather Clark and Morgan Mehler for Member-at-Large, so the Board accepted those nominations by acclamation, since there was no need to mail ballots and tabulate results. This will save the Region at least $375 in postage. The new officers will be installed at the annual meeting and awards dinner in Wilmington, at the Coastal Convention Center, Saturday, January 9, 2016.
NCR congratulates Christina Peterson, champion in E Street Ladies, and Brittany “Nikki” Edwards, champion in F Street Prepared Ladies, for their achievement in the Solo National Championships at Lincoln, Nebraska, September 7-11, 2015. These two well-known competitors in our Region took top honors in those classes. But perhaps what’s even more amazing is that their two rivals, the runners-up who finished right behind them, are also Region members. Congratulations also to Jennifer Bedell in ESL and Jennifer Vance in FSPL for their fine showing as well. Details of their achievement can be found in the November issue of SportsCar (Vol. 73. No. 11) which should have been delivered to all members by this time.
