My name is Ann Chamberlain and I would like to
represent you as a member of the USARM Board. My earliest activities
with USARM was a member for several years back in the `70s. Then
about 5 or 6 years ago I rejoined USARM and have been a member
ever since. I joined SCCA in 1975 and have been a member ever
since, working such positions a Flagger/Turn Marshall for 26 years,
Assistant Chief of Flags for 11 years, Communicator for 6 years,
and have worked Tech when they were shorthanded for 3 years. For
three years I worked for Victory Lane Magazine (a vintage sports
car racing magazine). I am presently employed by Sears Point Raceway
to work their test days.
One of the reasons I am running for the Board is that I am concerned
with the safety of our sport and feel that proper training of
new workers is essential. Also I would like to promote consistency
in our flagging and communication procedures.
The members of USARM are like an extended family to me. I feel
I can help USARM by being an active, committed Board member. I
am open-minded and honest, a good listener. I do not represent
a specific point of view, but want my point of view to reflect
the desires of the members.
Please give me your support in the upcoming election.
Hi everyone, my name is Steve Ynzunza and I am putting my name
in the hat to be considered for the USARM Board of Directors.
Although, only being a part of USARM for the past 4 years, I have
been an avid race fan for a longtime. I started attending racing
events at a very young age at LagunaSeca back when the military
was still running it.
I bring with me the knowledge of being a former Director of the
Gilroy Garlic Festival, Past President of the 911 Communication
Managers Association, as well as a member of a few other non-profit
Since being a member of USARM, I have recognized the need to
recruit new members as well as improve the quality of training
for new members in order to continue to provide the safe and professional
service to the racing community that our group is known for.
If you don't recognize my name, I am the guy that stays with
Ted and loads the trailer after each of the events that we work.
So, I am asking everyone to give me their support in the upcoming
Thanks for your consideration.
Hi everyone, my name is Darlyn Linka-Pettenati. For those of you
who don't know me, I have been with USARM for 8 years (and SCCA
for 12), and you can usually find me on the Pre-Grid. I enjoy the
family atmosphere that surrounds the events in which USARM participates.
I have no agenda, but will do my best to listen to your needs and
make them heard by the Board.
I, too, feel that continual improvements must be made to training,
which will further enhance USARM as a recognized source of qualified
Thanks for your support in the past and current consideration.
It's that time again, time to elect the board. I think most of
you know me. I'm the old guy who cleans the safety cars and makes
the coffee behind T11 at the SuperBike races. I have been on the
board for the past eight years and I'm willing to do another two
years if elected. USARM membership is growing and we are doing
more events and that's great, but growing pains can "KILL"
an organization like ours without proper training. My main priority
is to work with the board to create a training program that will
help keep USARM on top.
Thank you for your support in the past and please vote for me.
I have been on the board for four years now, and I will run again.
However I would really like to lose and see other members on the
board of directors. We only meet once a month and takes about
10-30 hours of time a month, depending on how many events you
chose to run. I feel the change in the board directors is a good
thing, as attitudes change over time and the board must change
with them. If you feel my attitude and beliefs are close to yours
vote for me, otherwise please vote for others.
OH and get off your duff and run for the Board.
