2016 Awards Banquet Highlights Plus
By Bren Wamsley

What a fun evening we spent at Valley River Inn, Saturday, October 22nd. We had 95 people attend this year. It began with a Social Hour, Pinewood Derby, and Photo Booth.  We had appetizers followed by a wonderful buffet and dessert table and lots of activities.  Gold was the color of the evening.  It was very fitting for our “50th Anniversary” theme.

Lorin Wamsley began with an introduction to the evening events.  He then introduced Bert Jacobson, our MC, and his side kick, Nick Kerbs to present the trophy awards to our outstanding drivers. They were given Hydro Flask 21 oz. Standard Mouth bottles with the Class Champions also getting a Standard Mount Insulated Sport Cap.  Thanks toTim and Peggy Steck for all your work on these. Bert gave a huge thank you to all of our sponsors and venues and presented them with 16 oz hydro flasks with silicone lids.

Jeff Childers created and presented the IROC video and results. The top 5 drivers were: 1st Steve Wynne, 2nd Issac Viel, 3rd Ryan Allen, 4th Ryan Rabern, and 5th Justin Pokorny.  Awesome Drivers!!  Thank you Jeff for all the time you put into this presentation.  Everyone can see this video on the EESCC facebook page.  

Bonnie Mueller provided a synopsis of what we have provided to our community this year.  We have donated $1000.00 to the Oakridge Fire Department and $918.00 to Food for Lane County.  Last year we also gave to the Candlelighters, Food baskets for the Campbell Center, and Guide Dogs for the Blind.  We will be giving our annual Thanksgiving and Christmas Donations.  We lost one of our long time racers this year and will provide a donation to PositiveCommunityKitchens.org in the name of David Lumbra.  They were most helpful to the Lumbra family during the difficult time.  In addition to cash donations, we spent 60 man hours and picked up 50 bags of garbage during road cleanup so far this year.   We compete to see who finds the funniest or grossest item and then meet and enjoy pizza and drinks afterwards on the club.  Our next cleanup is November 5th meeting at Superior Tire in Goshen.  We would love to have more helpers.
 
Bert Jacobson 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 Jerry Braunberger, our first double recipient, and well deserved.   Bert also presented Jim and Bonnie Mueller with a plaque and gift for their dedication and contributions to EESCC for over 40 years.  They have been the backbone and the heart of the club.  

Next we played a game called “Most Popular Answer”, a form of family feud with each table playing against each other.  Bren Wamsley explained the rules and hosted the proceedings.   Licia Shultz partnered with her to determine the most popular answers.  The winner was table 7 (DaWayne, Nick, and Chelsea Kerbs, Louise Mazet, Lexi Harris, Andrew Hafner, and Doug and Karen Drouet. They split $120.00 between them.

Then it was time for The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Bonnie Mueller presented these awards following musical accompaniment.  The “Good” was presented to Russ Walters for the “Most Improved New Driver”, Oops!  Jerry Braunberger and DaWayne Kerbs tied for the “BAD” garnering the “Compass Award” also known as the “Where the Hell Am I Award”.  The “Ugly” was awarded to Jason Braunberger with the “Cone Killer Award” hitting 41 cones for the season.  The CP’s have reined over this award for years.

Tim Steck presented thank you gifts, 16 oz hydro flasks, to acknowledge the time and commitment that several people have provided to make the club better for all.  The recipients of the thank you’s were Bren Wamsley, Licia Shultz, Hope Mueller, and Bonnie Mueller.  It’s a girl thing. :)

I hope everyone took advantage of the photo booth Licia Shultz and family setup.  It’s always a treat.  I’m looking forward to seeing the pictures.

Lorin Wamsley enjoyed presenting the Pinewood Derby results.  Thirteen cars participated; 4 in the modified class and 9 in standard.  Modified class resulted in Jim Mueller taking 1st place, Bonnie Mueller 2nd and Sean Mueller 3rd keeping all the wins in the family. Standard class was Bruce Harmon 1st place, Russ Walters 2nd, and Carin and Steve Nichols 3rd.  The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners received cash awards.  Ballots were cast for Butt Ugly and People’s Choice entrys.  The trophy for Butt Ugly was awarded to Patty Walters and People’s Choice to Bren and Lorin Wamsley.  The trophies were provided by Terri Wamsley, owner of Bar N Dee Trophies.  Thank you toTerri for the donations. 

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, Eric Hoffman – Chameleon Painting, DaWayne Kerbs - ALSCO, and Jim and Bonnie Mueller, Go Van Gogh Racing, James McCoy – Garage 808, and Aaron Ponciano - TireSport. Bren Wamsley won the $50.00 cash prize from EESCC and Jackie Hoffman the Valley River Inn’s “Bed and Breakfast Package”.  EESCC donated a number of cash prizes and autocross entries.  Also, I give many thanks to Licia Shultz and Hope Mueller for securing other donations throughout the community. 

We gave 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!

Lorin 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, Bert and Lisa Jacobson and Alex Gross and the banquet presenters, Bonnie Mueller, Jeff Childers, Bert Jacobson, Nick Kerbs, and Tim Steck.  

We would love to see more of you become involved in the club.  Attend our monthly club meetings at 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.

I’m already looking forward to the 2017 banquet.  If you have any suggestions, please send them my way.
