Message From the President
October 4th, 2015
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
The leaves are changing! We’ve made the change from summer to fall in what seems overnight – literally, one night we had the AC on in the house and the next we turned the heat on! The days are getting much shorter and it seems like I’m chasing daylight for modding. It’s a bitter sweet time of year for sure as we look to conclude club meets and (many) pack the cars away for the winter that lies ahead.
What an awesome year it’s been! Another huge Carlisle meet in the books, multiple localized meets across the country and internationally, impressive improvements and modifications to club cars, and a new website for the club! I have to say how proud I am of the season this club has had and look forward to the excitement that will push us through these winter months to the spring. The club will end the season this coming weekend at Endless Summer Cruisin’!
Ocean City is right around the corner, in fact those attending will converge to wrap up the summer on Thursday! For those who have joined us in the past, you know it’s a great way to say bye to summer and end the car show season with one last hurrah – beach, boardwalk, and bumpers! Wish us all good weather and you know we’ll be posting pictures of our rides at the inlet and taking part in parking lot shenanigans.
With summer being the club’s busiest season it’s when we have most club members up for membership renewal. In the past, we’ve been able to keep renewals coming in to support the club during these active months. This year, is the first where we have seen a decline in club membership. Unfortunately, we’re still seeing these members on the forum however, not supporting the club with that membership commitment. Please don’t wait, use the reminder renewal emails when you get it to jump right over to the site and renew – don’t worry, you won’t short yourself any time. The annual membership is automatically added on to the end of your existing membership so it will remain a full year long. Please keep in mind the great membership benefits and consider the membership contribution a way to keep this club’s future bright.
As we look to the upcoming holiday season..I’m sure you’ve all seen the count downs beginning and the holiday decorations for sale…be sure to share your wishlist with your family and that it includes new club gear! Keep in mind that there’s a club login for members to access the Cafe Press merchandise. Be sure to stock up on a new coffee mug, shirt, and gear! Don’t forget a 2016 calendar will also be for sale closer to the turn of the year.
Speaking of which, for those ROM winners this year, picture season is close! Each 2015 winner will need to provide a picture – the better the picture, the better than calendar. Be thinking of how you want to capture your ride for the 2016 calendar. Be creative!
If you’ve been reading these messages each month and find yourself continuing to return to the club page and aren’t a member yet, please consider joining us! It’s easy, inexpensive, and opens up some great resources and benefits to you. Please click here to join us! If you know your current membership will be expiring soon, be sure to renew here. You’ll be receiving a reminder just in case you forget to renew!
Respectfully, Keith Jarvis Club President
