Message From the President
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
The snow is gone, though I’m not sure for good here in New England, the days are getting longer, and every once in a while there are strong glimpses of Spring. It’s around the corner I know and has my wheels turning for my ride. My list that started as I tuck M-Pressive away for the winter months has grown and has me itching to get to work. With the buds of the trees poking out, I’m eager to get into the garage and implement these ideas. I hope that you’re all eager for spring as well!
The 2017 Board of Directors will hold our annual meeting in mid-March. I’m looking forward to gathering as a group and having a chance to really talk about the upcoming year and getting the group moving. I’d like to take this opportunity to invite each of you to provide us topics and ideas for discussion. There is a thread on the forum where you can post ideas. Already on the meeting agenda is the LHforums.net moving into our forum, and updating the knowledgebase how-tos with new or revised pictures. Once the meeting minutes are prepared, all materials will be posted for club members to see.
As the Ride of the Month contest continues into 2017, the monthly winner plaques have arrived and ready to be shipped to – YOU! Interested in being a part of it, contact a BOD member and we’ll get you into a contest. It’s a great way to showcase your vehicle and we all want to see it. Snap a few pictures after your next carwash, post them, and submit your name for a contest. You could win a plaque and a spot in our next printed calendar.
Believe it or not, Carlisle will be here before you know it! There’s been progress on event planning so be sure you regularly check the event threads. You don’t want to miss out on this great event – request vacation time now, register your car, and make your hotel reservation! For years our group has offered food (two meals a day) at the showfield – it’s a great deal – and it will be posted soon. As you think about getting your ride out and ready for spring, be sure Carlisle is in the plan! Award categories will also be posted for those who are interested. Regardless, it’s a great family gathering and I sincerely hope you plan to join us for the weekend!
Recently all members were contacted about ensuring log-in passwords were the same for the club website and forum so that the bridge may work efficiently. Many have done this with success and those who had different credentials have been working with me to get them aligned quickly. We’re very close to having everything linked so we have seamless maneuvering between the two, auto renewal payments, and automation of membership settings. Administratively, these upgrades will provide instant access for members and less impact on the BOD from a time perspective.
With the recent linking of the website and forum, we’re having a boom in memberships. It’s exciting to see as well as the breadth that we’re experiencing as members register from around the world. We recently had members from Spain, Denmark and the United Kingdom join. We truly are an international club! This spike is great to see and I know many have welcomed our newest members who are posting on the forum. Let’s keep this up!
