A. ?4 on the Floor? Motorcycle Club, a club dedicated to quad racers, would like to be recognized as a sanctioned club. They would like to host an event in 2009. They are in the process of becoming a club with the AMA.
B.  Bad checks; We are receiving a lot of bad checks at the GP?s. If you get a bad check, hold back the riders points until they make good on the check. Notify the next club of the rider who wrote the bad check so they don?t sign up with another one.
C.  Stewards; Dave Oakleaf motions to have the District pay the Stewards hotel expenses instead of the Big6 or the clubs paying. The clubs do not get any part of the entry fee?s as the desert division does. Cost will be about $500 per event. Motion second by Doug Phelan. Vote 22 for 5 against. Motion passed. This motion will be included in the new year?s budget.

Motion made by Dave Oakleaf and second by Devon Rich to nominate Kelly Phelan to be the youth series steward for 2008. Motion passed unanimously.

B.   Congress: Jim Geddes was nominated to the Executive Committee. The family membership went through the AMA committee. We are waiting for an answer from the Board. The AMA is getting out of promoting. If the National H&H Clubs are interested, contact the AMA as that series is for sale.
C.   VP:  Need volunteers to work e Long Beach show from 4-9 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There are 100 tickets left for the raffle bike for the LDF.
D.   BLM: Al Guzman is working with the BLM to avoid having more than one event in the same area at the same time.
E.   Referee:  We had a couple of protests, discussed 250 4-strokes and where they fit in. Sweep riders need to make sure any riders left on the course make it back to the camp area. They can not leave the course for any reason. All clubs through June need to attend the Risk Management Meeting on January 10th.  Med-Event Ambulance went out of business. Other companies that we work with are AMR and Symmons. Rescue 3 prefers Symmons. If you want a different company than Symmons, you need to specify what that is.

December, 2007 Comp Committee Minutes:

District 37 Competition Committee
Meeting for December 13, 2007

I   Meeting called to order by Richie Wohlers, District Referee

II   Attendance taken by Sheri Kibbe. Stewards present are Greg McGrath, Devon Rich, Ryan Wilson, Keith DeJongh, Doug Phelan and Dan Barnett. Guests present are Mike Luhan.
III   Discussions:
1.   Fliers to be reviewed:
a.   HBMC: Change fee from $31 + 5 to $30 + 5 for LDF
b.   Checkers MC: Change entry fee to $30 + 5 for LDF
c.   Prairie Dogs MC: Fix the dates
2. Guest Mike Luhan presents that kids 12-15 years of age who want to ride a quad over 90 cc?s will not choose to ride on a 125, because they are too small. This does not provide an appropriate class for the kids to ride in at the GP youth series. The classes in compliance with the AMA GNCC rules allows riders 13-15 to ride 91cc-200cc 2 strokes and 91cc-300cc 4-strokes. By law, anyone under the age of 18 has to have taken a class for safety on quads. Discussed requiring proof that the class was taken. Discussed rearranging the scheduling and moving the Bantam quads to race with the pee wee?s and the youth quads will be in place of the bantams. Will call the new class ?Atom Quads?. Vote in favor of having the new class was unanimous.
3.  Proposed rule change; no throw outs for the GP?s. All 7 races count for points. Motion passed unanimously.
4.  Some of the deposit cards are expiring. Check your card and contact Sandy Howell.
5. Enduro rules regarding transfers and finishes; Need 5 transfers to be bumped up for C, B and D riders. Another problem with enduro?s is finishing the course for 1 loop riders. There is no 1 loop option in Enduro rules. Proposal made, ?A desert rider who completes less than the required distance will be scored to his/her last completed check and receive 70% of his/her points for his desert class?. To be added to Section 12 item C. Voted unanimously in favor for the 2008 rulebook.
6. Discussed how to break a tie for trophies; First 10 in desert and endures count 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places finishes. All others, look back to last years lowest earned number.
7. Riders in GP?s are pie plating as a different skill level and then racing in the appropriate skill level the next day.  Proposed;
   a. rider will get DQ?ed
   b. rider could loose all points for the weekend for all races
   c. Hosting club could be called into comp committee and fined
   Riders may not pie plate outside of their assigned skill level. Riding outside the assigned sill level will DQ the rider from all events for that weekend.  Proposal was voted unanimously in favor.
8. Decals/numbers have not been made yet for 2008. Hoping to get them next week. Contact Richie.
9. Watch for people to send in apps with a higher skill level than what they are supposed to be.
IV   Meeting adjourned 10:10pm
