Dec. 6

  • New! Northwest Regionals planning meeting: Preparations for the 2023 Regionals began informally on Memorial Day 2022, but the formal process gets underway with the first planning meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 11:30 a.m. at the Pioneer Villa Truck Plaza Restaurant, which is at Interstate 5 Exit 216 (Highway 228), between Eugene and Albany. The truck stop and restaurant are just east of I-5; the restaurant is in the TraveLodge motel building. Obviously, the meeting is too far for many of you to attend, but you can submit in advance any agenda items you would like discussed. Final decisions will be made by the Northwest Regionals Management Association, an AMA-chartered club, after receiving input from anyone who wants to comment. The sanction goes to AMA on Jan. 1, and most details are set in stone by that time. So, if you would like your voice heard on planning for the 2023 Regionals, now is the time to speak up!
