Coronavirus Covid-19 Update
We received PCA National direction about their requirements around events from our President, Tom Gorsuch. He addressed three areas.
|First is a requirement that each of us attending a PCA managed event, complete a Communicable Disease Waiver (CDW) (updated June 25, 2020) . This waiver is effective from signing until May 26, 2021. Our BGS Board is looking at what system we use to ensure forms are completed and filed. The second area gives us Guidelines for PCA Officers and Event Organizers. The final area gives Member Safety Guidelines. Please take time to read the documents as they will influence how our events will be held. If you have any questions or concerns please contact one of our Board Members.|

The Milwaukee region PCA is extending an invite to Zone 13 regions to participate in the July 19 autocross which will be held at the Road America Motorplex.
Registration for the July 19 event is now open: Details and sign up can be found at Milwaukee Region PCA July 19th Autocross
What’s autocross? It’s a safe, performance-handling experience in which participants learn how to quickly maneuver one’s car around a course marked by pylons in an open parking lot. Instructors are available to teach the finer points of this low-speed event. Drivers compete against the clock, with one to three drivers on the course at any one time. Cars are kept a safe distance from each other. No modifications are necessary to one’s car to compete.

Message from our Zone Rep
Zone 13 Rep April 2020 Newsletter from Jack Stephenson
| Included in Jack’s Newsletter: |
It’s hard to believe it was only a couple months ago when the invite went out to all the Presidents of Zone 13 to attend the annual President’s Meeting. Once again it was scheduled to be held in Chicago over a Saturday and Sunday in March. The weather was going to be improving as spring time approached, and we had 6 new presidents coming to take part in their first meeting, (which was also going to be my final meeting as I am in the last year of my term as Zone Rep.) It was shaping up to be a great weekend, but a little virus had a different idea. Little did we know at that time how drastic things were going to change.
