The Cape Fear Chapter met on August 2nd at Elizabeth’s Pizza with 15 members present.

Chris Severt and Morgan Mehler led the meeting and discussed at length the flow chart of jobs and responsibilities within the Solo program.  We are moving to an Event Chair system where we involve the local solo members into their program and have them take the duties of running an event.  The main hope of this is twofold.  One, with a keen eye on the future of potential Solo Chairs and two, to help delegate many of the duties that have fallen on a few shoulders and to potentially prevent the dreaded burnout.

July Cape Fear Chapter Meeting report:

Meeting had 12 members and 1 guest present.  We started the meeting off with introductions and quickly moved on to the business of the meeting.

I.  Debrief of Points events #2 & 3 at Cherry Point MCAS

It was a very hard and trying weekend with a myriad of issues.  We had to call the event early on Saturday due to a quick moving thunderstorm that moved in.  We had one run group that never got afternoon runs in forcing us to revert back to morning runs and call the event based on 3 runs.  No awards given due to having to vacate the runway asap due to lightning.

Sunday just continued the trend with EMS being dispatched to the event twice over the course of the day as well as multiple timing and scoring system issues.  The event was called early when an NCR member collapsed in grid shortly after lunch and had to be taken to the hospital.  The event was once again called based on morning runs only.  No awards were given.
