Indy Region is Turning 7-0 - Join us for the Celibration!!!
Boy! Where has the time gone! It seems like just 10 years ago we were celebrating our 60th anniversary! Wait a minute! It was just 10 years ago! OK, time does go by quickly when you are having fun and we definitely do have fun with Indy Region, SCCA and fun with cars!

SCCA started in 1944 so we are just two years younger than the Mothership. Indy Region is one of the first Regions after SCCA officially started in the Boston area. If you have a chance to read one of Pete Hylton's books called "The Gentlemen's Club", you can get a good grasp of how and why SCCA was formed. On Saturday evening, February 26, 1944, seven car enthusiasts from the Boston area met with the intent of forming a new club specifically for those with interest in the breed of automobiles that were called "sports cars". Ted Robertson was elected as the first President of the new Sports Car Club of America. The first newsletter went out in March, 1944 and was called "SportsWagen". There were several restrictions in place and not just anyone could join SCCA! Thank goodness that changed! And as they say, the rest is history!

In order to celebrate Indy Region's 70th year, we have chosen Saturday, July 30th to gather and celebrate our Region's rich history. A fun rally is being planned around the north side of Indianapolis (Wendy Harrison promises FUN!) and then a picnic/cookout at Cool Creek Park in Westfield after the rally. The time is TBD right now so watch for announcements to be coming out soon – fast and furious! With the hope of good weather, this is a perfect opportunity for everyone to get out their cool cars and run the rally or just show up at the park for an impromptu car show!

If anyone has any memorabilia from the past and would like to bring – old photos, old Clutch Chatters, old trophies/dash plaques – bring them along. It's always fun to reminisce! If you know of anyone who was a member in the past but we may have lost touch with them, let us know and we can make contact with them. Or just ask them yourself to come and spend the time with us.

Mark your calendars! Saturday, July 30th! It will be a great way to get the next 70 years of Indy Region off and running!

Area 4 Director's Newsletter - March

Team SCCA,

Hello again.

The snow has melted, the salt is washing off the roads and it is time to take the trickling charger off the Sportscar. It is time to drive!

Attached are some of the highlights you might want to know about what is going on around Great Lakes Division (GLD). Some of you will see this again in a different format in a few days from the National Office.

As always, if you need any help with things SCCA, please let me know.

Regards,
Steve

Area 4 Director's Newsletter - November
Dear SCCA Friends,

Please find attached, another installment of the "SCCA news you can use", the Area 4 Director’s Newsletter.


There was a lot more to tell you, but I try to limit the Newsletter to two pages. For example:

  • Tomorrow (Saturday November 8) is our GLD Scheduling Meeting at my office in Dayton. The Agenda also includes the GLD Divisional Championships and other Divisional topics. Our Director is providing lunch.
  • SCCA Membership continues to climb. We were at 44,840 at the end of September, highest since 2009.
  • The TNIA schedule (read the attachment!) is well established for 2015. I can tell you where and when if you want to know.
  • The National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park is up and running. Things look very, very good.
  • More news saved for December.

Most of you receiving this email will also get a similar email from the National Office – same news in a slightly different format. I’d rather hit you twice than not at all. J

Best Regards,

Steve
