The ERCU Board of Directors, including newly-elected Paxton Reunanen and outgoing board member Ron Daum, met via Zoom on Sunday, Oct. 16 at 10 a.m. via Zoom to determine officers for the 2022-23 ERCU year, which officially begins November 1.
Club officers for 2022-23 will be Nelson Holmberg, chair; Rick Evans, secretary; Jim McKeon, registrar/treasurer; David Newton, statistician; Jerry Dunlap, race coordinator; Bill Mowatt, inspector; and Paxton Reunanen, director at large.
A couple of new business items came up, which were discussed without any action being taken. Those items included a question about a need to purchase a new chase boat to replace our Livingston, which has seen better days; and a brief discussion of the question whether the club should increase entry fees on race days. That discussion did not gain a consensus or a majority, so it will not move forward.
Regular ERCU Winter Meetings will be held via Zoom on the second Saturdays in November, January and March, beginning at 10 a.m., so mark your calendars to join in on those meetings, which will include a board agenda and time for offseason member feedback and fellowship as well. There is still hope that the Roger Newton Memorial RC Boat Show will resume at the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in February 2023, so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
