Emerald Empire Motor Sports Park Update  
By Licia Shultz

This is a wonderful time of year, with all the possibilities Spring and of racing in our future. This is also a time when, having planned our event schedule, we come to realize how few racing venues we have left.

That is why we formed the EEMSP, a foundation dedicated to the development of a motor sports park in western Oregon, with the goal of increasing track accessibility to racers of all skill levels.

This year a major goal is to get the word out as far as we can, creating a larger base of supporters in our region.

We have created a social media presence on many platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube to name a few.

We also have a web presence (come see us at www.eemsp.org!), and we are in the process of retooling our site to serve a larger audience and support mobile device access. Check out the site for some inspiration, and watch the changes over the coming months!

We tried our luck at using the GivingTuesday platform, a fundraising program that uses a variety of social media platforms. “Giving Tuesday” happens every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. We did get a donation, and an amazing education on fundraising.

We have had racers from our club attend events with other clubs, where they can act as ambassadors to help get the word out about our foundation’s goals, continuing to grow our base of supporters.

It has been a difficult time to do fundraising in the year of covid and big disastrous fires that affected so many people. But, thanks to our club members and supportive community we have been able to do some pretty impressive fund raising. THANK YOU!

We have also been working on a wonderful Power-point presentation that we will be taking to county officials to give them a clear understanding of our goals and ways to support our efforts while benefitting their local communities. We believe that this will further our goals of developing a permanent venue, and a home for the Emerald Empire Sports Car Club.

There are many ways you can help support the effort, and it’s not just by giving money. Maybe the company where you work does printing or prints specialty tee shirts, or makes banners, you could approach them for support in that kind of way. It could be a flat-out donation or maybe a reduced fee. The possibilities are endless. If you have an idea that might help in our goal and you want to talk about your idea, you can reach out to one of our board members or advisors. We are all reachable on the www.eemsp.org site, or even at one of our events.

Lastly, if you plan to attend events sponsored by other clubs, you too could act as an ambassador! We have put together an easy-to-use “Toolbox" with all the information you need to make a short presentation, and that could spread the word and help grow our base of support.

Looking forward to seeing you out at the upcoming race events! 

 Thanks so much, Licia Shultz Chair@eemsp.org

My visit with Ted Long  
By Tim Steck

A while back, at the 2016 Awards Banquet, I had the pleasure of sitting at the same table with Ted Long. He is an EESCC’r from way back, I mean way back in the 60’s. We had a nice chat about this and that and he asked me if I would like to have some old EESCC Newsletters. “Well sure” was my response. He gave me a bunch of old EESCC Newsletters (28 of them) plus some old event results too (3 of those). Every now and then I would think about them and go on a look-about for them. Looking for that 3-ring binder I was sure they were in but I couldn’t find it. Where did I put them? I did this, probably a couple times a year. In January 2021, while looking for something I needed for this year’s calendar, I ran across them and won’t you know it, they weren’t in a 3-ring binder. They were just put in a plain old manila file folder. Now I know why I couldn’t find them.

I always wanted to scan them and put them on the website for everyone to read. Now I have scanned them all and put them on the Publications page of the EESCC website either under “Event Results – Printable Format” or “Monthly Newsletters – Club Information”. Look for these links. (Click on the image to go directly to the documents.)




Click on a particular year’s link to see every publication, for example Newsletters, that was issued during that year.

The earliest one I found didn’t have much of anything to identify it or its author, not even the month or year when it was created and mailed out. But thank goodness this one (on the back) included the person’s address plus the postmark and the 4-cent stamp. With that I could tell when it was mailed and therefore when the Newsletter was created.

A lot of the first Newsletters didn’t have a title, a date or who was the editor and later on they were just titled “newsnotes”. The Vol. I, No. 1, the first issue of “Full Chat” Newsletter came out in November 1966 when Ted Long took over as the editor of the Newsletter.

Here are some topics that were in these newsletters: The text listed was the exactly what was written in the Newsletter, misspelling and all. (read the complete Newsletter on the EESCC website)

August 1966 – “Booze:” We held quite a lengthy discussion during out August meeting about drinking during club events, and decided …

September 1966 – “September Meeting -” The hottest item discussed was the new point system.
    1. Attendance at meetings – 4 points each
    2. Participation in an eescc event – 5 points
    3. Sponsorship of a new member – 6 points
    4. Working in an events – 10 points
    5. Chairmanship of an event (maximum 2 events) – 15 points
December 1966 – Beware – Notice has been given by WMC of several people drinking …

February 1967 – Coming Attractions – February 26 – eescc inaugural autocross: “Icebreaker I” at the Albany Go-Cart Track …

March 1967 – “AW SHUCKS!” – “Icebreaker I” was … er … moderately successful. A total of 229 cars entered …

May 1967 – “New Business:” – Ted Long suggested the purchase of 2 approved crash helmets for our future autocrosses. …

August 1967 – “eescc BLINDFOLD AUTOCROSS” …

October 1967 – “SSORCOTUA SDAWKCAB!!” – The rear engine cars were run first …

There are 28 different old Newsletters from May 1966 through February 1968, which included every month in-between. They skip to 1970 with months from April to August plus December. There were three event results (May Merriment Rallye Results – 1966 which included a mini Newsletter, Icebreaker I – 1967 and Icebreaker II – 1968) that were included with the Newsletters. Some of these Newsletters had some articles / discussions that were interesting – browse through them all.

If you have or if you know of anyone that might have some old Newsletter articles or old results before 2000, I would like to get a hold of them and get them on the website. If they would like them back, I can get them back to them after I scan them. Just let me know … Tim Steck – Webmaster@eescc.org
