b.   It was duly noted that riders were informed that there was no sound testing on any of the days of the event (Friday ? Sunday) due to ?windy? conditions even though it was only windy on Sunday.

d.   Richie notified the club representatives present that they should have conducted sound testing on both Friday and Saturday.

f.   After a brief discussion, the committee agreed to following penalty for Sled Riders:
i.   $50 fine payable now.
ii.   $1.00 per rider fine suspended for one year as long as the club complies with sound testing for their 2009 event.
3.   GP Youth Riders & Mini Class Rule
a.   There was an issue discussed with armature riders going back and forth from riding the 125cc class to the ?Youth? division.
b.   A possible rule change was requested but upon further evaluation of the AMA rules, there is no rule forbidding a rider to change back and forth as long as they meet the age and cc requirements.
c.   It was agreed that as long as the individual meets the age & bike requirements, they should be allowed to switch back and forth between divisions/classes.
d.   After some further discussion in relation to the mini classes, Richie made a request of the committee to eliminate the rule regarding mini?s located on page 41, Article 15, Section 1.
e.   A vote was taken, and unanimously passed in favor of allowing the elimination of the rule.
4.   Senior Women?s Class

b.   A brief discussion and explanation of the process of how it was passed clarified the concerns he had.

xi.   Quad ? Large ?T?
c.   The changes are proposed for scoring purposes to better assist with more accurate results and speed-up the scoring process.
d.   The change was proposed due to the addition of three new classes to the district and difficulties with check workers not being able to correctly record rider numbers due to the ?x?? and ?c? added to the rider numbers.
e.   After some discussion it was requested as a proposal to wait an additional year before implementing the changes.
