The West Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce is having a "Women's Networking Social" at 7 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Odenton Elementary School.

The evening will give chamber members a chance to discuss common interests and problems over desserts and hear a guest speaker. Dr. I. Jean Pastula will lead participants on an inward journey, investigating three techniques that will assist logic, motivation and creativity.

Topics for subsequent meetings -- scheduled quarterly -- will be determined Sept. 8.

There is no charge to participate, but reservations are necessary. Call the chamber office, 672-3422, by Sept. 7.

Three drivers from Odenton are among the top 30 drivers this season at Potomac Speedway in St. Mary's County. Roy Deese Jr., is ranked third, Ray Reichard is ninth and Barry Lear is 30th.

These men put a lot of time and money into the sport to hone their skills, and believe me, it's necessary. The drivers average 75 mph and will exceed 100 mph on occasion as they speed around the 3/8 -mile clay oval.

Potomac Speedway has races Friday and Saturday.

All three of our neighbors have missed some of the races in a season that began March 26, and one of them got a late jump. I'll bet if they had made all of their starts, their standings might have been even even higher.

Congratulations to Roy, Ray and Barry.
