Zone Rep Report September 2013

Liz ShawIn the Zone by Liz Shaw

Hello, Zone 9ers! My report for July and early August is a bit on the lite side. The months leading up to July were very busy for me on a local and national level, but then after Parade, things slowed down with my involvement. I attended the Die Serie #7 autocross hosted by the Roadrunner Region, at NAPA Speedway, west of Albuquerque. There are only 2 tracks in New Mexico and it's always a treat to be able to get out on those tracks at least once a year. The participation was somewhat light, so the corner workers got a workout picking up cones!

Elsewhere in Zone 9, the Regions were busy with socials, tours, autocrosses, tech sessions and DE's. Alpine Mountain Region's tour specialists, Chris and Kathleen Lennon, led an interesting tour to Saratoga, Wyoming. Unfortunately, I could not join them, but Chris reported that it was highly successful and everyone had a great time. The group had breakfast in Monument, lunch in Laramie (WY) and after a scenic drive, dinner at the Platte River Community Center. After a night in Saratoga at a resort with natural hot springs, the group headed to Steamboat Springs for lunch and then back home!

Bill AgewOn a sad note, the Roadrunner Region lost one of their long-time members and contributors. Bill Agnew passed away on July 28 at his home in Pojoaque and will be missed by all. From 2008 to 2010, Bill was the Technical Editor for the Roadrunner Region Ramblings. He was also a contributor to the newsletter in other years, and he served as a Director with the Santa Fe Concorso. Our condolences go out to Bill's family and his many friends.

Coming up for August and September – PCA Club Racing in both Colorado and Utah, long-standing club events (Roadrunner Region's 43rd Annual Corrales Round-up), tours, socials, and autocrosses. There are lots of opportunities to attend regional events and vie for the coveted Zone 9 Challenge Cup! I'm going to volunteer for the Club Race at High Plains and I'm really looking forward to it, as it's been several years since I've attended a Club Race.
