I would like to thank all of you who took
the time to vote and send in your ballots. As stated in the last
minutes I creeped past my co-partner with a few more votes, must
be the hair. All kidding aside, thank you for your warm support.
However, at this time, I feel that for the good of the club, continuity
is best. Thus, the board will remain the same for 1999. Now on to
the start of a new season.
As I write this, Oscar & I have just returned
from a trip to St. Louis attended by 4 other couples. Our fearless
leaders, Jake & Ann Snyder did a wonderful job of organizing this
winter outing. Before leaving St. Louis they were already planning
next year's event and hopefully more of you will plan on joining
us. Believe me, you are missing an enjoyable weekend if you don't.
We have a fun packed year ahead of us. For
starters, the awards banquet is on February 7, 1999. We hope many
of you will be able to attend. It promises to be a happy evening
with good food, good drinks, many awards being presented and most
of all, friends gathering to reminisce over the events of the past
year and making plans for the coming season.
With the driving season soon upon us I'm
sure all of you men & some of us gals, will be spending lots of
time in our garages preparing our cars for the many driving events
which are being planned as we read. I, for one, will be making many
trips to the garage with trays of nourishment and words of encouragement
for Oscar as he overhauls "RLB" for that long, long trip to Vancouver.
This trip sure will put a test on our marital bliss.
But closer to home we have many short distance
driving events planned for you. Please check the events schedule
and start planning your calendar. Remember, your participation is
needed to make these events a success. Let's not discourage the
folks who spend countless hours and sometimes days planning these
Also, the British
Car Swap Meet & Auto Jumble is on Feb. 28th, 1999. Our club
benefits from this event so please support it by helping and/or
We have many things to do, many places to
go, BUT PLEASE, let's do it with SAFETY in mind!
