Prez Sez . . . May 2016 Updates

Our busy 2016 season is in full swing, with a number of upcoming events. First Fling at BIR is now behind us and was a smashing success! It may also have been the nicest weather ever for First Fling. We maxed out our Driver’s Training school with 30 new drivers taking the class and qualifying to solo at our track events. Thanks to Ron Johnson and Jim Bahner for organizing the school and to the many volunteer Instructors who chipped in to make it happen. Unfortunately, we had to turn some people away, so be sure to register early now for the Last Fling Driver’s Training School in September if you missed out.

We had great participation for the Driver’s Education event on Saturday and Sunday, with lots of safe, fast fun. Kudos to Steve Meydell and Chuck Porter, our Event Masters, and Dave Anderson, our Registrar, as well as the volunteers who helped.

We hope to see you at one of these upcoming events! Paul Ingebrigtsen, Nord Stern President 2016
