2021 has been a much better year for the Club than 2020. We are all feeling less stress just by getting outside and seeing the sights we have in our local region. Tami and I flew to Maui for our 41st Anniversary. We had great relaxing time (near normal) vacation.
As you will see in this Newsletter edition, our Club has been active. Autocross is coming off 2 months of drawing larger than ever numbers of drivers. Tours have been full and with many new cars and faces. Cars and Coffee is at capacity with cars and now seeing members that we have not seen in a year thanks to the vaccines.
2021 is halfway over and we need to plan for the balance of the year. Cindy Suarez has Social Dinners scheduled but needs help finding places that will take a group of our size. Our normal places are being ridiculous on their requirements of a minimum cost to have event (to the tune of $3,500+) This does not work for us. Our typical dinner is around 40 people at $40($1,600) So if you know of a place that would accommodate our group size and budget, please let Cindy know.
Elections will take place in October and I will not be running for the Board or any positions available, so we need to start looking for others to step up and get involved to keep our club growing and thriving. Randy Ames and Larry Kirlin are willing to do so, but then we need people to start taking over Autocross and Tours. Please contact them or me if interested.
One of our biggest events is Oktoberfest. We plan for September 25th for this annual dinner and car show (presuming catering is still able—no changes in COVID rules.)
I always look forward to our Saturday Cars and Coffees to see our old and meet our new members (we are up by over 22 new members this year). If you have just joined make sure you look for me and Dan Morris (New Member Mentor) so we can get you hooked up with emails and text blast that Antonio Panzera (Webmeister) can send you alerts and blasts for our events so you do not miss out on the fun we have driving and sharing good times with good people.
