Board Members for 2002
President – Scott
with racing the day I was born, my parents being Waterford Hills members
since 1968. I really started getting involved when my dad purchased
his Formula 4, and I was responsible for tire pressures and other small
things. At the age of 16, I wanted to get more involved with racing,
so I started working sound control at Waterford Hills. Within a year of
doing this I became the chief of that specialty. After I turned 17,
I started working with ARS Tech, a job my parents got for

Grant and Liz Wilcox send their best from Florida. They would like to congratulate all the new board members and wish them luck for the season.
has been cool here. Down to 32 degrees F. Everyone down here
thinks that is really cold. My answer is that is why we moved down
here to get away from the 18 degree wind chill.

Info from SCCA-DET F&C Chief
Welcome to the 2002 racing season! We are but a few short weeks away from the beginning of the season and I’d like to take this opportunity to inform you of our training plans for this year.
We will be offering two Flag Schools this season for the benefit of both Detroit Region SCCA and Waterford Hills Road Racing. Both schools will be free of charge to all students. SCCA temporary memberships will be available at Detroit region registration to anyone not licensed by SCCA. These memberships are free, valid for 90 days and are fully renewable, so all are welcome to attend.
Detroit Region SCCA Flag School will be held at Waterford Hills Road Racing on April 20-21, 2002.
Waterford Hills Road Racing will hold their annual Flag School on April 27-28, 2002.
Anyone interested in attending either school should contact Debbie Martens at email@example.com, or call 734-421-2231. Please note that this is a new email address and change your address books accordingly. Thanks!
Also for 2002, Detroit Region SCCA and Waterford Hills Road Racing will be offering a joint Fire Suppression School. The tentative date for the school is May 11th, 2002, and will run from 8:30am until 3:30pm (approximately). Anyone from either club interested in attending should contact Debbie Martens at the email address or phone number noted above. Space is limited to 40 attendees, so get your registrations in early! Details for the school will be finalized in March and any changes to date or time will be forwarded by email.
We will also be offering a Captains School (again, a joint venture with Detroit SCCA and WHRRI), so stay tuned for further information. Announcements will be made well before the date, and all are welcome to attend.
Thanks and happy racing!
Chief of Flagging and Communications
Detroit Region SCCA/Waterford Hills Road Racing
I definitely think that my first order of business as the new Chairman of MTM is thanking all the previous members of the board and appointed positions. THANK YOU. Without you guys we definitely would not have made it this far. I also feel the need to thank the volunteers that stepped forward to help carry MTM into the future. Thank You. Hopefully with this great bunch of people we can turn MTM into the organization that it deserves to be, and one that its members are proud to say "Yes I am an MTM member"
Thanks Again to all past and present Executives
