AGM & 2021 Membership Forms

You can download your 2021 membership form here: 2021 Membership Form

Almost a year ago, we had decided to set the date for the 2020 SDRA Annual General Meeting of Oct 17 to try to get better attendance as weather would be nicer, closer to the end of the season etc. Well now to this year a lot has changed and due to social distancing, not having a banquet, etc. we have decided to hold the AGM with a virtual meeting using Zoom. If you are not familiar with Zoom, it is an easy-to-use video conferencing app/web program that can be used from your computer, phone, tablet, laptop, etc.

We hoped this meeting format is better for out of town members as it's a long drive to come to Saskatoon and have no banquet and room at the Heritage Inn was on the verge of not being big enough to social distance. Anyways we did manage to get a shortened season with four race successful race days and 5 Street Legals if the weather holds for all of them. To be eligible to attend and vote in this year's AGM you must be a member in good standing for the 2021 fiscal/race season which runs from Oct 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021. We have our three memberships:

  • RACER membership which allows you to get points in the 2021 race series and get discounts on racing fees and gives voting privileges and a voice in the clubs affairs for $200/year. PS Membership pays for itself if you race often with the member discounts.
  • ASSOCIATE memberships are for racers and supporters of our club which gets you voting privileges and a voice in the clubs affairs for $100/year.
  • FAMILY memberships are for immediate family of a racer or an associate racer and gives you the same privileges as an associate member. Family members can be added for $25/year.

Memberships are always due before the AGM and we normally collected a lot of the membership fees at the AGM in person from members. After payment, members were then eligible to vote. This year we are asking if you want to attend the virtual meeting and vote (voting to be done online using "survey monkey" in real time and monitored by the ethics committee) we are requesting that Memberships be paid by OCT 10, 2020. We will circulate an electronic link/invitation to virtual AGM to each member that has paid by Oct 10. Each member attending the Virtual AGM will be part of the discussions on the future of the club and vote on any motions that are raised and elect a new executive and ethics committee for the upcoming 2021 race season which we hope will not be as impacted as this year's racing.

Even if you aren't a member this year or haven't ever been a member, we invite and encourage you to become part of the Saskatchewan Drag Racing Association Inc. (SDRA) for the upcoming year. The club is a not-for-profit organization that runs SIR and promotes safe, legal drag racing. SIR is owned by us, as a group and we welcome new members.

We hope that the virtual AGM will run smoothly without any technological challenges. SDRA Financial information will be circulated via email prior to the virtual AGM and reviewed during the meeting. If you would like to bring up a topic at the AGM, please let me know ahead of time (if possible) so that we can plan to administer this meeting as efficiently as possible. Further, if you are interested in letting your name stand for the Executive, and would like to send a message out to the members on why you want to be on the Executive, feel free to draft a short note and we will circulate to all attendees prior to the meeting.

Memberships can Paid by etransfer to sdrasasktoon@gmail.com (leave details in the message)or Visa/Mastercard by phoning Kari at 306-381-6827 or online thru web app at https://www.happsnow.com/event/Saskatchewan-Drag-Racing-Association (convenience fee applies)
