6:00 pm – Cocktail Hour, Dinner, Dancing and Sundae Bar

On Saturday evening our SCCA family will be stepping into 1958 to be part of the musical romantic comedy GREASE which was released in 1978. Join in the fun with a costume to be part of the “T-Birds greaser gang”- the rival gang “Scorpions” – the “Pink Ladies greaser girl clique” – a “jock” – or an Australian transfer student. First, second and third place prizes will be given for “Most Creative Costumes” in keeping with the “Grease” theme. As part of its 10th year Anniversary Celebration, the NEDiv Road Racing Series will be presenting Championship Awards.

A hot buffet dinner will be served after the cocktail hour, finishing with an Ice Cream Sundae Station and dancing.

Individual Sessions

Jeff Jacobs and Linda Santangelo-Mosley will share information about all the programs that the SCCA Foundation supports and opportunities for Regions and Members to support the Foundation.

Sandi Kryder, NEDIV Divisional Administrator – Registration, will lead a presentation to help regions set up registrations in MSR which will lead participants to better participation in SCCA Annual Waivers and thereby smooth the Registration/Check In process at events. While this session is aimed at Road Racing Registrars, much of it is applicable to other programs.

Jon Krolewicz, Sr. Manager Regional Track Program Development, has information about how your region can use the updated (Club) Racing Experience to build better events, attract new drivers and grow your region’s program.

Matias Bonnier, NEDIV Executive Steward. Updates for Road Racing Stewards about changes in the program, updated forms and ways to build consistent practices in the NEDIV Road Racing Program

NEDIV 2023 and into 2024 – a review of last year and plans for 2024 by Greg Amy, NEDIV Majors Chair, Chris Mosley, NEDRRC Chair and Matias Bonnier.

BOD Update: Bob Crawford, Area 2 Director, will lead a presentation on the SCCA Board activities, direction and responsibilities. Chuck Dobbs, Area 10 Director and Peter Schneider, Area 1 Director will also participate.

Office hours: a room has been set aside for each Director to meet with members from his area to get acquainted.

Award winning RoadRally Organizer, Clyde Heckler, will demonstrate and teach how your region can build a Road Rally using the Richta App. Road Rally can help your region attract new members and enhance activities for current members

Rick Myers, Director of Rally/Solo will give a program status update. He is also a resource for regions that want to start a program.

Jim Garry, Divisional Solo Safety Steward will lead Advanced Solo Safety Steward training. While the SCCA Academy online course provides initial & continued education for Solo Safety Stewards, the training offered in this course is a deeper dive into safety issues and a look at how to deal with specific circumstances that may occur at an autocross. This course will help make a licensed SSS a more rounded steward and is a good step toward fulfilling requirements to become a Solo Safety Steward Instructor.

Greg Vincent, Solo Development Advisory Committee and Rick Myers will cover Solo Program updates and opportunities.

Rick Myers will provide information which the SCCA National Office is using to help with Solo and RallyX Site Acquisition. This group has been able to successfully open doors at properties where Regions just needed an opportunity, while coaching Regions on how to keep great site relationships.

Success Stories – Matt Greenland, NEDIV TT/TE Steward and John Hunter, SCCA Time Trials Event Manager will share success stories of regions which have built successful Track Event and Time Trials programs. This will also be a great opportunity to get access to people who can help your region get started.

Tips and Tricks for building a TE/TT event in your region – John Hunter and Kathy Barnes will work with you to see how Track Event and Time Trials sessions can be added into your race weekends to enhance the success of the weekend and grow membership. Bring your event schedule and we will work with you.

All Regions in NEDIV have a vote in the council. Reports from competition programs, election of officers and opportunities for the future of the Council.
