There will be a virtual meeting (Zoom Meeting) for the Wicked Good Vintage Stock Car Racing Association on March 14th at 1 pm.

You can attend this meeting by way of computer, tablet, or smart phone. I have attached directions on how to use zoom below. The Zoom meeting can only last for 40 minutes. Although this format is not completely ideal, it does allow us some opportunity to meet in a way to ensures safety for all club members and in compliance of state orders. I am currently working towards an in-person meeting for April. As those plans become solid, you will be given more information. I hope that you are all able to meet with us virtually on the 14th. If technology is not your thing, would it be possible to seek out help from a friend/ family member?

 

Zoom Instructions for Participants Before a videoconference:

1. You will need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with speaker or headphones. You will have the opportunity to check your audio immediately upon joining a meeting.

2. You will receive notice for a videoconference or conference call from your committee analyst. The notification will include a link to “Join via computer” as well as phone numbers for a conference call option. It will also include the 9-digit (usually) Meeting ID.

1. On your phone, dial the teleconferencing number provided in your invitation.

Message from Rosey Gerry 207-975-5432 

      Everything is fine here, except not much for work with most places closed down and the mud season!

Got to say weather hasn’t helped!

If the winter months aren’t long enough, we get hit with this, so one thing I did was go winter camping, found that to be quite rewarding even though I hate winter. still was fun!

 

        Missed seeing you all over the past months, and still we don’t know when we will be able to get together!

Been working when it’s half/way nice out, on my Caboose camper, it’s a slow process!

 

That being said, before we go any further, there is  NO WG MEETING  for May.

 

So, one thing we should be doing is calling one another and just say "how ya doing” or tell us what’s new with your racecar or what’s going on in your life we’d like to hear it!

Let’s not die on the vine!

Keeping in touch with one another can help pick up one’s spirits when things are dry! 

 

       When will we be racing this season, it’s a good question, the future is unknown at this point in time, that’s why it would be good to keep in touch with your division directors if no one else! ……..All division's should be doing this!

 

That being said Hobby Division drivers if you’ve only taken one class or haven’t taken any I’m gonna leave it up to  you  to contact me to bring you up to date! Don’t let this slide and just show up and say “I Didn’t know or I thought”!   Disappointment is a real let down, but rules need to be followed! 

 

And if this shut down should open up so track’s decide to let you go practice, Call me and I will come to inspect your car. 

 

Hobby Division people!

STOP! DO NOT GO ONTO TRACK FOR PRACTICE WITHOUT YOUR CAR BEING INSPECTED! Call Me!

 

We will get through this, but only if we work together, Our WG president will keep us informed as soon as he and the race director hear something.

In the mean time talk to each other no matter what division your in, it builds strenght!

 

Those of you who have or do face book please pass this on!

 

Hobby people you may get this twice cause your on both list!

 

Be safe, and don’t take chances whether on the street or home, or on the track, it’s just not all about you!

 

Hope to see you all soon!

Rosey

All MEETINGS are held at Governor's Restaurant, 376 Main St, Waterville, ME 04901 on the first Sunday of the month during the non-racing season
