Who is Gary OBrien?

What do the candidates stand for?

Why should I vote for one over the other?

This is the problem with ROAR elections. They are always for people that we have either never heard of, or know what they stand for, and have done or will do for racing. I have my ballot all filled out and ready to push the button, except for the choice.

Let's at least see statements by the candidates.

Hey Guys,

My name is Kevin Boyle and I am running for Region 2 Director. I have been racing On and Off Road for over 10 years. Over the past year we have added several new tracks to the ROAR family and I have started to bring the family values back into the racing scene.

I pushed really hard to get the Off Road program back on its feet and we had some great races in 2008. I feel that I have lost the contacts I had with the On Road Racers but that will change if re-elected. This Job can not be done by just one man. I would like to ask Chris Whitney for his help in 2009 improve the On Road program.

I feel ROAR has set up some great rules for all the classes but some of the rules need to change with the times. With that said I will always listen to what the racers are looking for and work with ROAR to make that happen.

If you have any questions on what I stand for let me know

Kevin Boyle

Default Region Directors and Other Elected Positions

Best of Luck to any member putting themselves up for election.

Many people may not even have an sense of the duties of our Region Directors. I think all members running or not should take a moment and review the Region Directors Handbook. It is dated 2006, but it will give a sense of the duty the position holds.

http://www.roarracing.com/downloads/...ctormanual.pdf

You can also review the Duties of the Executive Committee Members by reviewing the ROAR By Laws

http://www.roarracing.com/downloads/ROARByLaws2008.pdf

ROAR deserves those seeking our elected and appointed positions be prepared and committed to the time and responsibility the positions demand. We as a membership and organization are not served if people fill positions then disappear.

The items we have in front of us will require attention at all levels of leadership. The members now have an effective way to cast ballots for elected positions.

Vote, but most importantly Vote informed

I am running for Region 10 Director and below is some information about me.

Some changes I would make if elected include:

1. Region 10 Based website. Much like the Wyomingrc.com website, the new site would cater to Region 10 events and news. I would probably install an additional Web Forum to cater to the entire region. Additionally, the site will have a much more comprehensive administration section for managing events.

2. Work to increase the regional & state races in our region. I realize the difficulty of the size of our region, but we do offer virtually every type of racing available here. Our region holds many great venues, and I hope to increase participation at all facilities. Most notably, I would like to get more Utah tracks back into the ROAR fold or at the very least, coordinate their trophy events with other events in our region to avoid potential conflicts.

About me for those that don't know a lot. I've been racing off-road since 2004, and started racing electric on-road last year. I have both electric and a Nitro vehicles.

I've been the Treasurer and Secretary for the Wyoming Modelers' Park Association since the summer of 2006. Upon being elected at this position, I have discussed with my club that I would step down from this role as to not over extend myself. As treasurer, I have implemented many ideas that have reduced expenditures and raised income for our club so that we could improve our facility. Our club's park currently offers off-road and on-road tracks along with a flying field.

I served as the Race Director for 2007 at the off-road track, and this year as the on-road Race Director. As such, I have stayed on top of new types of racing, rules, and technology.

I created the wyomingrc.com website (with the continued help of other racers in Wyoming to manage it). This website features club information on facilities in Wyoming, Event calendar listing all race events, both club level to trophy events. It also has a forum, dedicated to each track, plus general topics.

I regularly attend races that are not held at my home track. And each year, I expand my traveling to include new tracks. This year, I visited, Magna and Rock Springs. Each year I generally budget to attend 3 to 4 events.

I am not a sponsored racer. I race out of pocket, and fully understand the issues that the club level racer feels and I continue to work hard to improve that at our club and would like to work on improving that for our region and nation. Some things that I have implemented in the past for our local track include: Parts & tire supplies at our club races. We do not have a local hobby shop, so I try to make sure to have enough to cover our racers in case of breaks. Rental Truck program. Our club offers rental electric scale T4s for people to try out.

Professionally, I am a web developer for a local community college.

If you wish, feel free to contact me at paul @ wyomingmodelers.com and I'll be happy to discuss with you over e-mail, or setup a phone call to discuss my ideas.

Thanks for your support.
Paul Branham

I think it would be best if all candidates post their stump speeches in one place. I would to vote, its just that I do not have a good idea what their backgrounds/visions for the future are.

ROAR doesn't have a forum on rctech so would it be possible at least for all ROAR nominated people to post their stump in one easy place? Like the one ROAR has setup on hobbytalk?

http://www.hobbytalk.com/bbs1/forumdisplay.php?f=152

Thanks!
