Howard Duncan, V.P. Program Development and Operations sent this -

It is with great regret to announce that Sue Robinson has submitted her resignation and will be leaving us in early July. Many of you know about Sue?s passion for her horses, and she wishes to pursue that passion and other interests in greater depth.

Doug Robinson, who has been doing some contract work with us on rules
development for the new Closed Course Rally program, will also be stepping away from those tasks.

Sue and Doug have been an integral part of the SCCA national Rally
programs over the last several years and their contributions will be
evident for many years to come as the new rally programs evolve. On a
personal note, I will miss their humor and insights on a daily basis. Since they will be staying in the Topeka area, hopefully they will not
become strangers, as we all definitely do not want to lose their
friendship.

Please join me in wishing them the best as they move to the next phase
of their lives.


I thinkl that pretty much completes the rally people purge in Topeka ...

I went to a RallyX today.

Still "SCCA", but lots of faces I recognize when I go to rally events.

Our worker base, it seems, is largely rooted in these SCCA events, and that community, and it's a shame to see what appears to be a march towards degradation and that loss of history.

The loss of stage rallying appears only to have been the first step....maybe I'm wrong, though.....

Same faces, Matt, but many of us are no longer SCCA members.

Over the years was only an SCCA member when necessary and at gun point.

I haven't been to a rally in a while, but from what I have read and heard rally is much healthier with RA and NASA than it was with SCCA.

You got that right!

Can't see me in your mirrors?

Sue and Doug did a good job in my opinion.
Too bad they didn't have the support from the SCCA to keep things going. As we know, the SCCA was and is too focused on making money without spending any or doing anything for it.
I wish Sue and Doug the best for whatever path they might take.
