The Oregon Chapter introduced the Club Challenge incentive program in 2012, designed to encourage and reward participation for members and associate members of our club. We’ve made a few adjustments after the first year. Members earn points for attending meetings, participating in driving events and car corrals, contributing photos or articles for the newsletter or website, etc. There are many ways to earn points which will be tracked throughout the year and posted on a leader-board on our website from February through September. Winners will be announced at the anniversary dinner in January and awarded a plaque and a prize. Full details are below.
All members and associate members in good standing during the current calendar year are eligible with the exception of the board. Both elected and appointed board members are not eligible for the club challenge. Members and associate members joining in the current calendar year will compete in the Rookie class and points will be calculated based on length of membership.
We’ve decided to make a change to the prizes moving forward and will award sponsor prizes instead of cash awards. Stay tuned for full details.
