As I am sent e-mail reminders to vote for the RMAP car of the year, I go over it and realize that I cannot truthfully, honestly, vote in a way that is fair and balanced. Why? Well, out of the total…Continue

Let's Have A Serious Conversation

As I am sent e-mail reminders to vote for the RMAP car of the year, I go over it and realize that I cannot truthfully, honestly, vote in a way that is fair and balanced. Why?

That would be like voting for my favorite soda but only trying RC Cola.Now, some of you might say it's because of scheduling, which I can truly understand and respect that being the nature of the local business. I've been flexible with the fleet…See More

So I guess this might be considered a call out to all involved, but as a member of three years, I am seeing a trend that concerns me.  We seem to be losing members, losing participation from manufacturers, and not recruiting writers of all caliber.  We have access to some of the most amazing roads in the west and yet the cars we are getting out here are nothing like what is seen in Washington state or with other groups.  And as I look at the membership, I personally feel like I am the youngest…See More
