Club Events, elections, possible day at the drag strip

Well, the twins, Connor and Ethan are now 7 weeks old as of yesterday. I haven't been able to do much in the way of setting up a Fun Run this year, and for that, I appologize. But you know, family takes priority.

In that vein, I'd like to reach out to club members to help coordinate events this season -- show and shine, dyno day, fun run, whatever you're interesed in. BUT, I can't do it all. If you want to have events, I need YOU the club members to step up and set something up.

I was at S & S yesterday picking up some parts for the Commemorative and Jeff Williams suggested a track day at Summer Duck drag way. I think it's an awesome idea!

I'd like to see a show of hands of who may be interested. The more the merrier (and cheaper!) as they say! If we get enough interest, Jeff knows the owner of that facility and we may be able to get the track for a day.

And finally, I'd also like to suggest that at whatever event we decide to do, we need to take care of club business. We're WAY past due for elections, and I'd like to open it up to anyone interested. For me, twins take priority, so if anyone wants to step up, now's the time to make yourself heard!

Your President, Jim Miller

More info on Summer Duck:

To make this work, we need a LOT of participants -- remember we're basically renting the track, so the more we have, the cheaper per person. Jeff Williams and I are predicting at least 20 cars or it won't work.

Not sure just yet what the individual outlay will be, but we want the funds up front to guarantee people showing up, and obviously show the track manager we're serious.

So if you're up to it, Jeff and I will continue to persue this as an event.

Let me know what you guys think.

Some say we have allies in the Mopar circuit. At least inviting them wont be as embarrasing as if we invited civic guys and lost to them.
