Bob joined SCCA in the 1970’s, recruiting his own flagging crew (The Road Runners) to work races around the country. He came to New England Region in 1987 after retiring as a Lt. Colonel from the Air Force. For decades, he participated in the Runoffs as a part of the F&C team, and obtained his competition license driving an SRF.
Through the years, Bob has served the NER region in a variety of capacities. He has held multiple terms on the NER Board of Directors, leading the region as Regional Exec. He was elected the Area 1 Director as well, including being chosen to lead as the Chairman of the SCCA Board of Directors.
As a veteran, Bob served in the Vietnam war and was awarded a Purple Heart. He spent twelve years in politics representing Londonderry in the NH House of Representatives.
He is known as the “NER Weatherman” because of his years spent in meteorology. When a decision needs to be made about how to proceed with an event during stormy weather – he’s the one they ask.
As an Operating Steward, he is patient with a session – giving things an opportunity to sort themselves out. As Chief Steward, he will involve all his team in the goal of a successful event.
He always welcomes mentoring new stewards and is constantly looking for people who would be an asset to the program.
Its easy to pick out his golf cart because somehow – it ends up with a flag on it. And you can ALWAYS find him at the end of the day party – thanking workers and sharing a laugh with a driver.
