2015 Awards Banquet Highlights Plus

By Bren Wamsley

What a fun evening we spent at Valley River Inn. We had 113 people attend this year. It began with a social hour with appetizers followed by a wonderful buffet and dessert table and lots of activities.  “Things That Make You Smile” was the theme for the evening.  Licia Shultz provided a number of fun hats for our MC, Bert Jacobson and helper Mr. White, Nick Kerbs.  Danielle Zimmerman provided fun novelty items for each table to be used by all.  Ryan Wamsley put together funny pictures to be spread on the tables to keep people smiling, and Lorin and Bren Wamsley gathered funny pictures for the inside of the program. 

Lorin Wamsley began with an introduction to the evening events.  Ruben Cruz followed with presenting stadium blankets to the sponsors.  Ruben gave a huge thank you to all of our sponsors and venues.

Bert Jacobson, our MC for the evening and his side kick Mr. White, Nick Kerbs, presented trophy awards to our outstanding drivers. Our trophies this year were high quality embroidered Coleman Quad Chairs.  Thank you Bonnie Mueller and Licia Shultz for all your work on these. 

Bert, our Yes No game host, called up individually 10 volunteers to try to chat with him for 3 minutes without saying any form of Yes or No.  Sean Kato was the only one to make it 3 full minutes.  Bruce Harmon, I believe it was you who lasted the least amount of time.   Everyone picked a prize from the cooler. 

Jeff Childers created and presented the IROC video and results. The top 5 drivers were: 1st Cat Rice, 2nd Ryan Rink, 3rd Keith Olsen, 4th Alan Bowers, and 5th Steve Wynne.  Awesome Drivers!!  Thank you Jeff for all the time you put into this presentation.  Everyone can see this video on the EESCC facebook page shortly.  Alicia Andrews presented the 1st place award to Cat Rice and she also presented “Go Girl” energy drinks to Ryan Rink and Keith Olsen to rub in the fact they were beaten by a girl. 

Ruben Cruz announced there were a number of people within our club who are deserving of the Gear of The Year Award.  It is given yearly to a club member who steps up and goes above and beyond.  This year’s recipient was Hope Mueller.  YAY Hope!! 

Ruben then gave a brief memorial to Shunan Zhu and Tom McDaniels.  They are both truly missed by the EESCC family.
Ruben provided a synopsis of what we have provided to our community this year. A total of $2400.03 has been donated to Food for Lane County, Oakridge Volunteer Fire Department, Guide Dogs Federation of the Blind, Candlelighters, and Food Baskets for Campbell Senior Center. In addition, we are doing road cleanup 3 times a year on a 2 mile stretch of highway 99 in Goshen resulting in many man hours of labor for the adopt a highway program.  Ruben mentioned the next cleanup is scheduled November 22nd, 9:00 am, at Superior Tire in Goshen.  Try to make it. The last 2 roadside cleanups brought in 56 large bags of garbage collected by 19 volunteers consisting of 57 man hours.   There will be other non-racing events during the off season.   I’m hoping for another Scavenger Hunt, Bonnie and Jim Mueller do an awesome job putting it together.  Also I bet there will be a wine tour and Poker Tournament, Go Cart Event, the Museum of Speed Tour and an EESCC picnic sometime during the summer 2016.  This event would include the other Oregon clubs.   Other suggestions are encouraged.

Next we played a game called “Most Popular Answer”, a form of family feud with each table playing against each other.  Bert had fun MCing this one.  The winner was table 7 (Bruce and Maria Harmon, Scott and Terri Wamsley, and Dan and Gayle Schnell).  They split 120.00 between them.

Tim Steck presented the Good, the Bad, and The Ugly special awards with musical accompaniment.  The “Good” was Russ Walters for The Most Improved New Driver.  The “Bad” was Randy Poole who garnered the “Compass Award” also known as the Where the Hell Am I award.  The “Ugly” was Nick Kerbs with the Cone Killer Award hitting 31 cones for the season.  The CP’s have reined over this award for years.

Many terrific door prizes were drawn throughout the evening.  Several of our sponsors donated door prizes including:   Bert Jacobson - All Rite Roofing, Lorin and Bren Wamsley - Lorin’s Home Team Real Estate Lending, Danielle Zimmerman - the Josh Cooley Team Keller Williams Realty, Tim and Peggy Steck - TBS Consultants, DaWayne Kerbs - ALSCO, Jason Mattes, the official EESCC Barber, Ed Collins, Simply Strong, and Jim and Bonnie Mueller, Go Van Gogh Racing. Sarah Fields won the $50.00 cash prize from EESCC and Halli Williams won the Valley River Inn’s “Bed and Breakfast Package”.  EESCC donated a number of cash prizes and autocross entries.  Also thanks to Licia Shultz for securing other donations throughout the community. 

We give many thanks to Valley River Inn for hosting our event and providing such a nice door prize. I really enjoy working with Roxane Butler, Director of Catering, Valley River Inn. She is so fun and accommodates our needs in any way she can. Their servers were very attentive and welcoming to our group. I have one more Thank you and that is to David Mills. He continues to provide a DVD with excellent footage of our series events.  I do know the editing takes a lot of hours. Much appreciated David. You’re the best!

Bert presented Ruben with his own Coleman Quad Chair embroidered with his name and Past President in honor of Ruben’s 9 years of service as President of EESCC.  You’ve done a great job Ruben!  Enjoy your freedom.  J 

Ruben closed by thanking everyone for making EESCC such a great club. He also thanked the Banquet Committee (Bren, Lorin, and Ryan Wamsley, Danielle Zimmerman, Licia Shultz, Hope Mueller, Rachel Cruz, Bert and Lisa Jacobson and himself) and the banquet presenters, Tim Steck, Jeff Childers, Bert Jacobson, and Nick Kerbs.   I would like to give a personal thank you to Bruce Harmon for taking pictures during the event. 

We would love to see more of you become involved in the club.  Attend our monthly club meeting 7:00 pm, the 1st Wednesday of each month at the Sizzler.  It’s fun to eat and chat among friends prior to the meeting.  If you would like to write a news article for the club, let me know and I’ll assign a month.

Already looking forward to the 2016 banquet.  If you have any suggestions, please send them my way.  It will be our Golden Anniversary.  Woo Hoo!!

Oh by the way, 2016-2017 new officer election ballots were cast at the banquet and online for those who could not attend.  The new officers will be announced at the December club meeting.
