Indy Region Legend passes away - RIP Lou Byer - 5/21/16
It is with a heavy heart I share this news. Our beloved Clutch Chatter Editor, Artist, Award Maker, Grapic Guru, competitor, great friend, ultra nice guy plus a 100 other things, Lou Byer has passed away.

We received notice this morning (5/21/16) of his passing. It is totally unbelievable that he is actually gone from us. We will post info as we find out..

Rip Lou. You will be horribly missed.

...and to Indy Region.. we have some huge shoes to fill, if they ever can be.

Indy Region is Turning 7-0 - Join us for the Celebration!!!
Boy! Where has the time gone! It seems like just 10 years ago we were celebrating our 60th anniversary! Wait a minute! It was just 10 years ago! OK, time does go by quickly when you are having fun and we definitely do have fun with Indy Region, SCCA and fun with cars!

SCCA started in 1944 so we are just two years younger than the Mothership. Indy Region is one of the first Regions after SCCA officially started in the Boston area. If you have a chance to read one of Pete Hylton's books called "The Gentlemen's Club", you can get a good grasp of how and why SCCA was formed. On Saturday evening, February 26, 1944, seven car enthusiasts from the Boston area met with the intent of forming a new club specifically for those with interest in the breed of automobiles that were called "sports cars". Ted Robertson was elected as the first President of the new Sports Car Club of America. The first newsletter went out in March, 1944 and was called "SportsWagen". There were several restrictions in place and not just anyone could join SCCA! Thank goodness that changed! And as they say, the rest is history!

In order to celebrate Indy Region's 70th year, we have chosen Saturday, July 30th to gather and celebrate our Region's rich history. A fun rally is being planned around the north side of Indianapolis (Wendy Harrison promises FUN!) and then a picnic/cookout at Cool Creek Park in Westfield after the rally. The time is TBD right now so watch for announcements to be coming out soon – fast and furious! With the hope of good weather, this is a perfect opportunity for everyone to get out their cool cars and run the rally or just show up at the park for an impromptu car show!

If anyone has any memorabilia from the past and would like to bring – old photos, old Clutch Chatters, old trophies/dash plaques – bring them along. It's always fun to reminisce! If you know of anyone who was a member in the past but we may have lost touch with them, let us know and we can make contact with them. Or just ask them yourself to come and spend the time with us.

Mark your calendars! Saturday, July 30th! It will be a great way to get the next 70 years of Indy Region off and running!
