How do I get started?

road racer? Do you think you want to become a professional race car driver? Are you just looking for a
weekend activity that's inexpensive that will let you run your "daily driver" in competition, but with
relatively little wear and tear on the car?
OVR is very proud to receive an archive of photographs from Joel
Topolosky and Ron Lester both former members of the Region. The photos are in the

|Soap Box Derby Assistance requested|
|At the November Board of Directors meeting, Will Schmitter made a presentation about the SoapBox Derby project being operated as part of an after-school program in the Marysville school system. This project is being done by middle-school students and has had at least one event in April, 2015. (The same day as our Tech Day socializer. ) They also had a pinewood derby the same day as the big cars.The program runs from January to April each year and they are looking for some help. They are interested in adults who can work with the students on the design and construction of the cars, they would like some help with conducting the events, they need some help in the form of a trailer to move stuff around and they need some help with the ramps from which the cars are launched.It seems to be a really good fit for members of OVR since their active season is during our off season and it is a good chance to find some young gearheads and get them interested in moving up to cars with more power than gravity.If you are interested in helping, contact Mr. Schmitter at firstname.lastname@example.org or 937-243-7084. The other thing is that you could attend the Derby on April 23, 2016 at the Marysville High School.||

this type of an event.
