Can you believe it? It is already March. For those of us wanting to get afew maintenance issues resolved over the winter are just about out of time. Luckily there are a few more weekends before the driving season starts.…and the Annual Swap Meet should be able assist in providing that missing part you have been looking for.

And what a driving season this will be! You can check out the many events already on the schedule in this month’s issue and note the calendar on the back inside cover. There are a few weekends that have been earmarked for an event but are looking for a sponsor to make it happen. Maybe this is the year for you to ‘step up to the plate’.
