Happy August everyone. It has been a few months since we sent the last broadcast message so the time seemed right for an update...
DRIVE FEST Sep 8 - 10 at CTMP
Drive Fest 2023 - CASC-OR will once again have a display at this event in September. This year we have been given space for up to 10 cars to be on display in the upper area by the CTMP Conference Centre. The plan is to have vehicles from every Division represented. That also means we need volunteers from every Division to staff the event.
This year our display is being organized by Pat Cyr - if you can help out please contact Pat directly for more details firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of you that simply want to attend the event as spectators, CASC-OR has a discount code to save on the admission fee. BUY TICKETS HERE and use the discount code CASC20.

CASC-OR Board Positions
There are quite a few CASC-OR Board positions up for election this year. If you are interested in getting more involved please either contact a current Board member, or feel free to reach out to me directly.
Treasurer - Anne McCallum has agreed to stay on for another term, but will be pleased if someone else would like to "give it a try".
Vice President - the Vice President's role is changing. I'd like someone in the position that is ready, willing and able to take over should the President (me) need to reduce their time commitment.
Division Directors for Race, Autoslalom, and Karting are available. The existing Directors have served multiple terms and do not intend to stay on.
CASC-OR is made up of 30+ motorsport clubs with well over 2,000 active members. For the organization to continue to flourish we need enthusiastic participation at all levels of motorsport, but critically we need an active Board of Directors to lead the way. Have you got what it takes to step up?
Please check out the News feed on our website - casc.on.ca - for the latest information about what is going on. Recently posted items include reports from both the Autoslalom and Time Attack Directors.
As a final "plug", the Calabogie Summer Classic is this weekend. There is still time to register to race or to volunteer...
See you at the track...
