    Officers and Board of Directors,

    Below is the Criteria for the Wally Swift Award. This Proposal was submitted by Jim Morrison. The Proposal has my approval and will complement our new Autocross and Concours rules. I ask you to approve this Proposal. Please vote by 4-17-05.

    Criteria for the Wally Swift Award

    A) The award is presented at each United to the owner of the car or cars who does the best in the Popular Vote and the Autocross, combined.

    B) He/She must own the car(s) that is in the Popular Vote and must own and drive the car(s) in the autocross. The car(s) receiving the Popular Votes and car(s) being Autocrossed does not have to be the same car.

    C) The person must have been a member of TE/AE prior to the participation in the Autocross or the Popular Vote, whichever is held first.

    D) The award is based on the combined finishing positions in the Popular Vote and Autocross events, using the finishing position (e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4…) as the points assigned. The award goes to the person with the lowest total points. In the Popular Vote, the points will be determined by where the car ranks in the Most Popular Alpine or Most Popular Tiger vote. In the Autocross, it will be based on the overall finishing position of the car in the Autocross (not by class).

    E) Example: An Alpine that the person owns gets third place in the Most Popular Alpine vote. This would be three points. The person drives a Tiger that he owns to the fourth fastest overall time in the Autocross. This would be four points. His point total for the Wally Swift Award would be 7 points.

    F) If there is a tie in points, the award goes to the fastest autocross time. If there is no one meeting these criteria, the award is not made for that year.

    G) The award is open to the owners of Tigers and Alpines only. Tigers must have a Ford engine based on the 260-289-302 small block and Alpines must have an Alpine engine. No conversions are eligible. A person must participate in both the Autocross and the Popular Vote to be eligible.

    H) There will be a perpetual trophy and a personal trophy given to the winner. There will be one perpetual trophy that has a plaque containing all previous winners’ names and will pass from winner-to-winner at each United. The personal trophy will remain with the winner.

    I) Any criteria not covered here will be the decision of the Board and that decision will add to these criteria for future awards.

    Respectfully Submitted,

    Anthony J. DiBattista
    President TE/AE
