Default ORRCA AGM, new initiatives & excess funds

Could all clubs in SEQ please consider attending the ORRCA AGM? Our committee needs new members with new visions or ORRCA’s accomplishments will be declining. With risk of offending some of the ORRCA committee; it is probably true to say that that at least half of the committee members including myself, have been on this committee longer than what is healthy in any organisation. Whilst ORRCA’s insurance section is prospering; interest in running ORRCA’s events have slumped, so only one event is run this year. Consequently ORRCA supports only one form of RC racing (On-road Electric 1/10 scale) this year, which is only run by 4 out 20 (20 %) affiliated clubs! The only assistance that ORRCA can provide to the other 80% of affiliated clubs under the circumstances is affordable insurance cover!

After all the insurances were settled with clubs and our underwriter; ORRCA had about more than $12,000 in bank balances. Only the rental of our P.O. box was an outlay this year that ORRCA had to pay without collecting the money first. All other expenses are designed to be paid for by recipients before ORRCA pays for anything, and the excess money is at least $11,000 more than what ORRCA needs for its operations. The money belongs to our affiliated clubs, and ORRCA needs to find a way to return it to them! ORRCA spends some of its excess money on ORRCA events; and with extra support for events run by clubs in regional areas, but only 4 out of 20 affiliated clubs that race On-road Electric can benefit from it with the current trend and lack of interest. Considering this it would be prudent to keep about $ 1,500.00 in ORRCA accounts; there is absolutely no need for more, and our reserves are increasing.

I’m pleading to all clubs located in SEQ to have representative at the AGM, and have one of your club members nominate for committee positions. Clubs outside SEQ need to send submissions of how ORRCA can be of assistance to their own form of racing, and can still have members nominating for committee positions.

ORRCA’s affiliation and insurance cost are very reasonable; and a reduction would make clubs even more complacent about taking interest in ORRCA’s operation, so that should not be considered as a way to give excess funds back to clubs. There is a proposal on the table to disburse excess fund through small development grants to clubs that have shown loyalty to ORRCA for planned projects they need funds for. Only to clubs that have been loyal to ORRCA off course, and paid their affiliations on time for a period of at least 2 years would be eligible.

Could all clubs please give all this some thought, and help ORRCA to go forward by taking part!

Kindest regards,
Lars.

P.s. I know that the post is too big; and my apologies for taking up time of your life that you’ll never get back, and thanks for taking time to look at it. If anyone is interested, the explanation of why ORRCA has accumulated all the excess money below.

ORRCA used to pay its insurance underwriters before the club affiliations were received, and there was always concern of if there was going to be enough money in our cheque account. Consequently money was kept in a separate term deposit account as a precautionary reserve, with a substantial balance in the cheque account. The underwriters are now paid when affiliations are due for the clubs that have paid, and the reserve is just sitting redundant now collecting interest. The reserve was never touched in past times, but it was usually a close call.

I am hoping for a little clarification on the battery rules as they are worded in the recent rules.

3.2 reads - A maximum of one (1) drive battery may be used per car (ie 2 cell lipo).

Does this exclude using a saddle pack type arrangement (2x1S batteries in series)?

2015 AARCMCC IC Queensland Championships - QRCCRA

Being held at the all new and improved England Park Raceway!

It's late, but it's coming, as will more track picture updates as more gets finished, but start building/rebuilding your cars, and start planning, cause it's happening.

To date on this project, it's been conservatively estimated this has been a $400,000 project and track/site redevelopment, of course the catch being no RC clubs make that sort of money, so the alternative reality was it took near every friend, favor, and what became a long amount of time with absurd amounts of man hours, to build what will likely become one of the best RC model race tracks in the world.

Records will be set, history will be made, fuel will be burnt, tyres will spin, engines will scream (and likely someone will scream at a marshal or two), but it will be epic.

The more who can let us know you are coming, the better we can setup and gear up for the event.

Right now the events is on The Facebook...
https://www.facebook.com/events/544425095710645/

And on the clubs website...
http://www.qrccra.org.au/events/qld-aarcmcc-ic-champs/

To come likely tomorrow, will be the online entries, and I'll add that link it when I have it.

Regards,
Kerry Novak

New Insurance Policy for 2016 is now in place.
2015 Policy has expired.

All clubs that have not as yet renewed membership and 2016 insurance should do so now with some urgency .
