Congrats on your new position within the SCCA as being a part of the SCCA Solo Department New SiteAcquisitionCommittee. Tell us why you wanted to be involved with this, and a brief description of what they plan on doing in the near future, especially here in the Northeast?
I enjoy being part of start up programs, I feel that I have an ability to see what makes a program work and then turn that vision into a reality. We all know that in the Northeast and in parts of the country good solo sites are long and far between. I feel that this committee will enable the regions to have the tools to be able to acquire solo sites for themselves and for use at the national level.
