Message From the President
June 6th, 2016
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
If you’re anything like I have been lately, you can’t help yourself and are outside every day and do something to the car. Many of you know I have A LOT of somethings to do with my cars right now – I’m putting my show car back together after a color change and boy is it a lot of work. It takes a bit of effort but once I’m cranking on it, it’s hard to walk away. As I work on the smallest of parts and turn each bolt to hold it back together, I can’t help but think about how much I really enjoy these cars! Their lines are clean, their luxury is complex, and their look can be unique. I so value what each member does to maintain their cars, create a ride that is different from others, and those who get to enjoy the ride!
The countdown to Indy reached its final day and the meet was a huge success! Many thanks to John and Mike for all of their efforts to put together such a great meet and thank you to all of those who attended the meet to make it such a great time. Be sure to read the Indy recap and check out the pictures from the weekend on Fotki. As the 100th running of the race and the 10th Chrysler 300M Enthusiasts Club meet at this event, the finish line has been crossed for Chrysler 300M Enthusiasts Club Indy meets. It has been a fabulous run and much appreciated for sharing this amazing spectacle with our group. Many memories have been shared and the club family has expanded from sharing this together.
Up next: Carlisle! Not to worry, the count down for this meet has also started and if you haven’t felt the pressure yet, you will soon. The hotel booking will close soon (last day to book with our group rate is Tuesday, June 14) so be sure that you don’t miss out – call and book today. The food thread is also posted to be sure that you’re making your payment and signing up on the list today. The earlier the better in helping Lindsey plan for how much she will be cooking the days before the meet. Keep an eye out for posts on the meet’s awards and shirts. This year is looking to be a bit smaller – a more intimate family reunion if you will – don’t miss out on a great time!
Planning to Carlisle? Remember the club’s travel reimbursement plan. It’s there for the membership and a benefit you will not find in any other online car club! You need to be an active member of the club to use this benefit so be sure you’re membership is current. Read more about it here.
We’re ticking through the calendar pages and the Ride of the Month contests of 2016 for next year’s calendar. Hard to believe that we’re half way through the contests. Keep up your action in voting and nominating those awesome rides. The June contest will be starting soon and July’s contest will be determined by the Best in Show winner of the Carlisle meet (plan for the announcement to come mid month after the meet).
There’s been a ton of talk about getting new club merchandise – embroidered mens and womens shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, fleeces, etc! Progress has been made on selecting a company and samples are in the works. Once the quality and embroidery process is determined to be worth it, a group order will be placed. Keep an eye on the thread to be a part of the group purchase.
Our membership continues to be very strong since the new forum upgrade. We are maintaining a high number of members. Many thanks to all of you for publicizing our club and sharing our great resources with others. Get those wiper cards handy and tag all the LHs you see!
