August Membership Meeting & Board Elections
8/04/2022

Our next membership meeting will take place on Saturday, August 13th, one hour after on track activities are complete.  That is the same weekend as PCA Northeast Region is at the track.

At the July membership meeting, the members voted to fill two vacant Board positions for the remainder of the year.  The two vacant Board positions are both in their final year of a three year term and they were previously held by Jim Wilbur and Randy Berry.

Tom Proko was nominated to fill the position vacated by Jim Wilbur.  Bordon Mills was nominated to fill the position left vacant by Randy Berry's passing.  Elections will be held for these two positions at our next membership meeting on August 13th.  We need a quorum of 14 members at this meeting so please plan on attending if your schedule allows.

We will also have a motion to form the Nominating Committee to elect officers for the 2023 racing season at the August 13th membership meeting.  The election committee is tasked with soliciting and presenting nominations for officers at the nomination meeting held in September.  If you are interested in serving on this committee, you can make your intentions known at the membership meeting or let the RSI President or Secretary know in advance of the meeting.

Randy Berry 1957-2022
7/09/2022

We are saddened to learn that this evening Randy Berry has passed away from his battle of cancer.  Randy has been part of the Race Services, Inc. family since the beginning of the organization 20+ years ago.  Randy started in F&C then joined Start/Finish and bounced around where needed.  Randy was an assistant flag chief, and for the last several years served as a member of the Board.  Randy was a friend, and a mentor to many.  He will be missed by all who have worked with him.

Randy Berry funeral information:

The family will be receiving friends and family on Wednesday, July 13th from 5pm-8pm with a small service to follow immediately afterwards.  The address is: Cedar Heights Brethren in Christ Church.  37 Cedar Heights, Mill Hall, PA 17751
