REPort Mike Toombs Regional Executive

Wow, I just realized that the year is more than half over. The Fun One is right around the corner. The Runoffs® and the Solo Nationals are coming up fast, what a year! Work on the Fun One is in full swing. The entries are coming in and it looks like everything is in fine working order. This year has been good to the Finger Lakes Region and our racing program. For the first time ever we were able to finish Westward Ho! with a surplus. We have come close before, but after a dozen years we have finally been able to do it. Thanks goes to Lew Giesy and everyone else who helped put that event together. We also had a surplus for the BFGoodrich Tires Finger Lakes SCCA Super Tour. There were a few expenses that we hadn’t planned on, but after reimbursement from national for the Saturday evening party we ended up in the positive column. We received several kudos from competitors for the event as well as several people complaining about things, nothing changes there. I know that everyone who volunteers to work at our events does their best to make it the best run event it can be, 4

sometimes there are events that are out of our control and things happen. But hopefully we learn something to make the next event a little better. The Solo program ran their last event at RIT last month. If anyone has any ideas where we can find more sites for the program to use, the help would be greatly appreciated, so please talk to Tom Weaver. For the first time in a real long time there are no Finger Lakes drivers making the trek to Lincoln, Nebraska for the Solo Nationals. I was planning on going at the start of the year, but lack of vacation and other things got in the way, so I’m not going. Maybe next year… Next month will be the annual meeting. As well as seeing where the region is at, we will also have the election of officers. Please check out the slate of candidates elsewhere in Top End. It seems that every year it is tough to get people to help run the region. It is great that the nominating committee was able to find people who are interested in making sure the region continues to be a success. Mary Hartman has made a concerted effort to do some social things with the region. It is always interesting to see people somewhere other than the race track, parking lot or rally. This is always a good opportunity for people to get to know people that they may not see regularly. Hopefully a lot of people made it to the “Old Timers Picnic” (I’m writing this before the picnic, but you are reading it after the picnic), this has been a success in the past and I’m sure it was again and don’t forget about the river cruise in October. As you may have noticed there have been some changes to Top End. FedEx informed us that the USPS has changed requirements for mailing newsletters. This has forced us to change our format as well. Carl is working with a different vendor to see about pricing to get the publication printed and sent out. If you are someone who would be happy to read it online, please let Carl know and

he will discontinue mailing Top End to you. Until next month, Mike

2013 September

NYSRRC Representative 2005 - present Directors - Outgoing directors are Chris DeMinco and Charles Tanck Chris Ciufo Join date – 5-1998 Licenses held – National Competition, Crew Hello, my name is Chris Ciufo. I have been a member of the Finger Lakes region since 1998. I started out as a track rat jacking up my father’s race cars as a kid. I first got into Solo with go-karts in 2005. At that time along with many other Finger Lakes members we were able to establish the first generation of competitive Solo karts. When I turned 16 I started to run Solo in H Stock and briefly ran Street Mod 2. In 2001 I started crewing for my father  running  a 240 Z in SCCA Road Racing  and in 2012 I borrowed his car and  was granted my club racing license. I’m currently running my rookie season in Spec Miata - thanks Dad! I also occasionally RallyCross, and have been known to roll a car or two.... For my age I have quite a broad experience with SCCA and have enjoyed and participated in many aspects of the Club. If elected to the Board I feel my age can provide a different prospective to our Region and I›d like to continue to make our local club such a great experience. It would be a pleasure

Rally Tom Langdon Interim Rally Chair

Rally Meeting Notes

August 13, 2013 96 Church Street, Victor, NY These notes are grouped by subject and are not in chronological order. The following nine RoadRally and RallyCross enthusiasts were present; interim Rally Chair Tom Langdon, Rick Barnes, Carl Dresie, Ben Gilmore, Jerry Kerwin, Bill Laitenberger, Debbi Segall, Alan Smith and Tony Zanni. General Rally The October rally meeting date has been changed from Oct. 8 to Oct. 15. Recent communications from the national RoadRally Board centered on ways of increasing participation. The five dollar non-member fee has been rescinded. Social rallies are no longer limited to time or distance. Social rallies cannot be part of a competitive series. The sanction fee is a flat $20. The Finger Lakes Region has been providing worker support via cash or meal. Not all workers take advantage of this perk. Events need to be promoted at the local colleges in addition to Facebook and other social media. Summer and Fall Rallies Rick will write a social rally to be run on Oct. 5. Lynn Randall has a social rally to Bully Hill scheduled for Oct. 19. 2014 Winter Rally Series The winter series at it currently stands was reviewed. Dates are: Jan. 4, Jan. 18, Feb. 1, Feb. 22 and March 8. 12

Alan Smith will be rallymaster for the first event and Gary Thomas will do the second. Gary’s starting point tentatively is in Watkins Glen. Rick Barnes is taking the March 8 rally. Rallymasters need to be named for the two February events. Get any changes desired to the general instructions to Tom. RallyCross Field work at Perry’s Park was done on July 14th, by Rob Suzs and Tony Zanni. Condition of the field is much better; a few ruts remain but will be good and fast for the Aug. 3 RallyCross. More improvements are on the way. RallyCrossers please find Rob on Facebook and thank him for the work. Any donations for field repair, i.e., clean fill, tractor time or other volunteer efforts welcome. Bruce is ordering some fill for his barn and he will let us use what is left for field repair. The RallyCross budget will be used for purchase of some of this fill. The track maintenance budget item will be doubled for 2014. Twenty two entries recorded times at the Aug. 3 event. Dust was near the upper limit, future events at Perry’s Park may be cancelled if more dust is created. Unregistered cars can no longer be kept at Perry’s Park.

TOP END

RallyCross safety stewards are needed. The next RallyCross event is scheduled for Aug. 31 at Perry’s Park. STPR® Will there be a Wellsboro Winter Rally and what is the date? Miscellaneous Discussions Tubular meat products, chips and beverages were enjoyed by all. The direction of new software, early computers, jumping and burning trucks, passwords, program names and car problem solutions were subjects of the miscellaneous discussions. Wiener dogs as navigators require special equipment. Tony will be running Black River Stages with Rich Smith on Sept. 21 and 22. We need to have a presence at Imagine RIT. By request, several items discussed are not reported. (Simultaneous conversations make it difficult to capture all pertinent information.)

Jim had finally gotten the railing and stiles repaired near the back door, thereby quieting some of Peggy’s complaining. All that remained was to put on the final coats of paint. He had made arrangements to codrive Willie’s A-Mod on Saturday and didn’t want to miss the chance behind the wheel to finish the painting job. (The paint, roller, brushes, etc. were just outside the back door and ready to go.) Catching sight of Tommy, the next door teenager who was always looking to make a little money, Jim decided to offer him the job for fifty bucks. Arrangements were made to have the job done while Jim was out playing. Late that afternoon, Jim pulled into the driveway and catching Tommy’s eye, paid the fifty. “Tommy, how did the painting go?” “Fine Mr. McNiyal, only it’s a Ferrari, not a Porsche!” 18
