Time Until SpeedWeek 2017
Following is a partial list of changes to be made to Sections 1, 2 and 3 of the 2007 SCTA rulebook. These changes are a result of the SCTA Board of Directors vote at the Dec. 1, 2006 meeting. There were 16 members of the 17 person board present at the meeting. Steve Tollar was at home recovering from recent surgery. President Mike Manghelli would cast a vote only in the case of a deadlock on an item. The final vote for Sections 4, 5 and 7 will done at the Jan. 5, 2007 board meeting.

Words in bold type face indicate changes.
