Contest! PDX needs a new name

SCCA National lost the trademark on the name "PDX" and "Performance Driving Experience".  We thought we would give you an opportunity to help us pick a new name.  The person who submits the new name selected by the committee will receive a free day of PDX! er, ah, well, let's say a free day of "xPDX" in 2019. 

Entries must be received by midnight on 24 December 2018.  Send your suggestions to fastcarphysics@gmail.com with subject line "xPDX".

Please do not respond to this email with your contest submissions.

For inquiring minds: After 10 years of building the PDX brand we are very disappointed to lose our name, but we need to move on.  You might wonder, what does the SCCA National office call us now?  xPDX is now part of "Track Events".  The National website (https://www.scca.com/pages/scca-track-events) says that Track Events include "Track Days" and "Track Night in America".  (Oddly, Time Trials and Road Racing are not Track Events.)  So PDX is now a Track Day?  Except for that one mention on that webpage, "Track Day" is not used by National in any other reference.  The rules and sanctions all just call it a Track Event.  We consider that name to be both boring and confusing.  We need a new name, our own unique name.  So help us out!

Fresh pictures for the website wanted

Attention All DC Region Members - we need your help!

Do you have some cool photos that you'd like to share with the rest of our members?  How about an historic race or moment you want to remember?  We are adding a sub-page on our website for sharing your photos.  It's like Instagram for car nuts!

Here's what to do:

Send us your photos in .png or .jpg or .bmp and we will post them to our site.  You can add a caption or short description (where/when it took place, who's in it).  Then drop in on the website any time to check out everyone's photos whenever you want! 

2019 is the 75th anniversary of our club and we want you, the members, to be involved in helping us relive all the cool moments.

And guess what!  YOUR photo could be selected to become one of our masthead images for one of the main program pages on the site!  How cool is that?

Email to:webmaster@wdcr-scca.org with your photo attached and your caption (optional).  You can give credit for the photographer and we will include it, but if you don't specify, we will just post as-is.
