We had a nice diverse group of attendees – some road racers, autocrossers, and track day fanatics. We all concluded that there is a definite interest within the “local community” including many non-SCCA people. A big key will be to get the word out. I think by getting started this early, we have a much better opportunity for success.
We discussed goals for how many events we would like to put on for next year: full day event at Milw Mile, co-event with WI Grand Prix club race at Milw Mile (like we did this past August), full day event at Blackhawk Farms (joint event with Chicago SCCA), and possibly another day at Road America in addition to the March Of Dimes event. These events would be SCCA sanctioned & insured, so we would be following SCCA safety regulations for these events.
Ambitious? Yes! Fun? You bet!!! We’ll need lots of help to pull this off – that’s where you can make a big impact in the success of these events.
We have scheduled another meeting for Thursday November 17th at the ICC @ 630PM. At that point we will discuss budgeting for the stand-alone full day event at Milw Mile, marketing efforts, web site development, etc. You and others reading this thread are certainly welcome to attend!
