This is short notice, but if you'd like to help out, the time is now!

As you may or may not know, the “HPC Race Committee” has recently had some changes. Tom Breedlove (and Beth too) has resigned as “Race Director/Chairman/Grand Poo-Bah” (pick your title). They are still part of the committee, just not able to put in the amount of time they have in the past. At the last Committee meeting, no one stepped up to act as Director and it has been decided to “RACE BY COMMITTEE”; i.e. the people on the committee would perform the various functions as required.

The last several years it has been pretty much the same people doing the work, with the exception of Bill Bates who joined last year and Robert Holler and Clay Smith who have joined this year. Having one Race Director to oversee the whole shebang seems to really wear on that person (or couple), and they don’t get to experience the social parts, or enter any races themselves, which is why turn-over was inevitable, so we are trying to come up with some ideas to help “spread the load”, so to speak.

One suggestion was to have a different Director for each race/event (or a couple of races). That person could oversee all that needs to be done for that one (or two) events, and then be done with being in charge. They could help out or volunteer (or not) for other events, get to socialize and/or race. This is still just a suggestion. We have some other ideas we’re tossing around, and we’d like to hear more. Have you always wanted to run one of the races? Let us know.

The committee could also use some help in the way of pre race activities too. There are a vast number of things to do prior to the race that some additional hands and hearts would benefit by.

The purpose of this message is to encourage you to participate in this adventure, to find additional people to ‘share’ the work for a great event. We need to decide very soon, and get the ball rolling for next year’s event, to be held Memorial Weekend, May 29, 30, 31, 2010.

So if you would like to contribute in person, the next HPC race committee meeting will be this Sunday, November 15th, at 4PM in the afternoon. PM or email for the location and directions.

Thank you!
