  • Banquet  Summary: it went very well. We don’t have the exact bill from Darboy Club yet, but we have our numbers  which should be the same as theirs, as we know how many people were actually served. Entertainment was great and very affordable and they agreed to sign on for next year. Beer sponsors were Mike Meyerhofer Jr./Jake Carpenter Racing; Bud Collar and Team 45 Racing.

People mentioned that it went well….there was no CAN DO award, in an attempt to cut down on the amount                 of plaques and cost

  • Final write in Nominations for Treasurer and Vice President; thus far we have:

Vice President—Nominated and Accepted Nominations:  Tom Gee, Jr

Still accepting write ins…(Kyle Quella was nominated last meeting, but was not present-he has since that time declined)  

Jerry Schneider was nominated for VP…he mentioned that the contract with Roger is nowhere near what it used to be 8 years ago. He feels whomever is the VP should know what we need to get back.

Jerry said the top gate was 7.5% when he was president, and the back gate was 0% at the back gate for R, W and B. Jerry simply said we need to go back to Roger and get back what it used to be. Jerry turned down his nomination.

Mitch talked about his opinion on it. He said a couple years ago Roger asked for an inflation increase, which was the first time in 17 years he asked for this to increase. Everyone’s bills go up.

Jim mentioned that this is what the committee is going to review and request for changes from Roger.


Treasurer—Nominated and Accepted nomination —Mitch Heimlich

Still accepting write ins….Pat Roeser was nominated by Jack Effertz. (he accepted the nomination)

No more nominations.

Speeches took place for both positions.

Final votes that count were

V.P-Tom Ge Jr 58 votes————-

Tom Gee Jr is the New VP

Treasurer- Pat Roeser 54 Mitch Heimlich 11———-

Pat Roeser will remain the Treasurer for the next 2 years.

Jeffrey Sachse had some departing words. While he enjoyed the last few years as the VP, he also has other things going on and is asking for younger people to step up in the future and run for office.

Jim Duchow mentioned he met with Joe Verdeghan and he will likely start getting more involved with the FRRC in the future, but will not be able to give us a definitive decision until January 1st. Jason Shultz might also be taking over the website. We should have an answer soon from him.
