Re: Safety Steward Training - Feb 5, Springfield

Justin Huffman is a licensed SSS instructor in our region, and mentioned that the easiest possibility is having the training right before a monthly club meeting. These meetings are usually on the second Tuesday of the month (exception: this month's meeting on 2/21/2017, due to Valentine's Day) in Sp...

Re: Safety Steward Training - Feb 5, Springfield

Yes, it looks like registering for the $20 seminars on MotorsportReg is the ticket. It also gets you into the Saturday morning seminars, which can be good learning and collaboration time. Charging to become a SSS or RXSS isn't the intent, but there has historically been a safety steward session as p...

Re: Safety Steward Training - Feb 5, Springfield

I'm now getting word that Sunday safety steward training is still part of the official convention, and will require the $20 registration for the seminars and conference room fees.

If you want RXSS training, let me know. I can get that started for you one way or the other.

Re: Safety Steward Training - Feb 5, Springfield

Nothing is necessary to take the class. For the Solo Safety Steward application, the instructor will sign off on a line in the SSS application. Copies should be available at the class, but if you want to get a jump on things, feel free to print off a copy and fill out your information. https://www.s...

Re: Make RallyCross Great Again

There doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in RallyCross in Ozark Region. I'm here to help if there are more than two people interested. Fort Chaffee is only 90 minutes from my house. I'll probably check out these indie events if no schedule conflicts, and if they're not an organizational dumpster f...

Re: Post Season Charity Fundraiser Solo Event - "Kill All Tires!"

I volunteered to do course setup, and my rough draft (subject to improvement) passed with Scott. The idea is to have a morning session and an afternoon session. The morning will have two concurrently running small practice courses. One will be a transition course with a slalom and some offsets (time...
