Report on the SCCA National Convention

by John Lindquist, Assistant Regional Executive

I will surely leave something out, but not on purpose. My first SCCA National Convention and it was worth the trip! You see I am not a gambler so the trip was for the Convention. I did, however, lose $4 showing my wife, Annie, how the slot machines worked. There you have it, bet $4 and lost $4, just what I expected!

Now to the reason for the trip… It seems like it was well attended by folks from all over the country, lots of RE’s and specialty chiefs. One of the first things Jerry Pell and myself did notice, was that the majority of the folks attending were…well, we will just say past mid-life. This was somewhat understandable since travel, work and the like would keep several non-retired folks away.

North Carolina Region Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner 2012

The NCR Annual meeting and awards dinner was held Saturday, January 5th, at Caffé Luna in Raleigh.  Over a hundred members attended and the festivities were in high gear.  The food was out of this world!  The buffet featured something for every one, from fresh fruit and cheese, through chilled salmon and shrimp cocktail, sliced ham, grilled sausage, steak, chicken, four kinds of pasta, asparagus and other veggies, and of course, salad. If you left hungry, it was your own fault! All drinks including beer and wines were included in the meal and that kept the conversation going until we went through the buffet line table-by-table. Many thanks to Bibi Tucker for setting all this up!

Carolina Collector Car Fest

RALEIGH, NC (NCR-SCCA) – The North Carolina Region was well-represented at the Carolina Collector Car Fest held in Raleigh at the State Fairgrounds over the weekend of November 11 – 13, 2011. Two members, Sam Fouse and Boz Marchi, graciously volunteered to display their cars, fresh from 1st place wins at the Goblins Go. Sam’s meticulously-prepared MX-3 was the hit of gear heads from all over, who marveled at the Dennis Shaw-built motor and the superb fabrication by Dan Robeson, both Triangle Chapter members. Boz Marchi’s lovely blue F500 attracted show-goers of all ages, quite literally from age five to seventy-five. The older gentleman even took notes. We may just see him at a future event!
