            December 2001                       Well, here we are at the end of another year, another season…and the
                                                end of an era. The start of a new membership year – the first in 35

                                                season, of new track records, new competitors, new

                                               As we start the holiday season, take a few
                                               moments to ponder your involvement with your
50th Anniversary Banquet & Award     Pgs 4 - 5 club…how much do you contribute? What do you get
                                               out of being a club member? Do you involve your

                                               thing such as being a motorsport ambassador is
                                               good for your club…at any opportunity speak well
for our sport, our club, safe driving, organized motorsport. Speak against illegal street racing,
poor driver education and provide a good example for others. Fill in your membership form
and join early. Go to club meetings, have a say, express an opinion…write an article or letter for the Pit Pass.

The year ahead will be a bit different - Molson Indy Vancouver will be in July which gives us less time to prepare;
our Track Operations will be concentrating on “landscaping” rather than construction; SCCBC will host only three
Conference events and up to five CACC events; two (?) Driver Trainings; a Historic weekend with Vintage; a race
or two with Westwood Motorcycle Racing Club …and maybe a Solo 1 event. Your club will need all the help you
can give, for one weekend or several.

Your past and present Executives have worked hard to get the club to where we are today and I am sure your
new Exec will co ntinue the tradition. Thank you to all, especially those that have already committed to next year –
Race Chair Tom Roy, Asst. Race Chair Robert Currie, Membership Chair Pam Stec, RDC Chair Ray Stec, Registrar
Tina Callahan and those of you standing for election in February.

                                                 Thank you to Charlene McComber for an excellent year as Pit Pass
                                                 Editor. The pictures and commentary have been great. Although time
                                                 restraints will not permit Charlene to continue, we have found a willing
                                                 replacement (John Campbell) and Charlene will help him get started…
                                                 it’ll be a hard act to follow John!

                                                 On behalf of the Executive and your fellow club memb ers, I would like
                                                 to wish you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season and I look
                                                 forward to seeing you at the track and clu b meetings
                                                 next year.

                                                 Drive safely and take care,

                                                                Mike Kaerne

                                           Vice President’s Report
 SCCBC has had a great year! Running 4 - ICSCC races, 4 - CACC races, the annual vintage race, 1 - driver training
 school and the return of the Westwood Motorcycle Club which was consisted of 3 practice days and 1 race day. It’s
 great to see the Westwood Motorcycle club back in action! When we weren’t having race weekends, track rentals filled
 up some of the weekdays as well. We also must not forget the SCCBC Sedan Invitational at Molson Indy—57 cars on
 track….what a weekend that was!

 All of the above could not have been accomplished without the dedication of all the volunteers that came out to help.
 Many, many thanks to all of you that gave up your weekends to support amateur motorsports at the River’s Edge and
 Molson Indy Vancouver.

 Our Pit Pass Editor for 2001 has been Charlene McComber. What a fantastic job she has done for the club. SCCBC
 is very grateful for her services over the past year. Great Job Charlene and thanks again for all your work in putting
 the SCCBC Pit Pass together. We wish you all the best in what ever endeavor you decide to take on in 2002.

 Although we will miss Charlene, John Campbell will step in as the Pit Pass Editor. With John being new to this, he
 could use some help. Anyone out there that could give John a helping hand?

 SCCBC’s 50th Anniversary Awards Banquet was a great success once
 again. DeeAnn Lensen did a stellar job with her decorating expertise,
 organizing powers and a little help from Michael, everything was topnotch!
 Thanks to Tina, Cheryl and Laurie for looking after the tickets sales, and
 the phone committee for calling around to remind all of you about the up-
 coming event.

 As the season has wound down and we get ready for the Christmas sea-
 son, I wish all 315 members the very best during this holiday season, re-
 member to love and cherish your family, for they are the backbone stand-
 ing behind you in all you do.

 Happy Holidays and the very best in 2002 to all!

 T. Ward
