Message From the President
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
Yikes! It’s hard to believe that it’s already August! While the years and the miles seem to be going faster and faster, I appreciate the constant that this club provides.
Congratulations to all on another wonderful Carlisle in the books! The 25th Anniversary celebration was a huge success and I hope that those who were able to be part of the festivities enjoyed themselves – I’ve heard as much! We had some pretty amazing happenings this year – As one of the largest events in the club’s history, with ## members in attendance, it was an amazing celebration! With the help of Carlisle Events and early car registrations, we were able to secure a wonderfully located showfield location. For the first time ever we had enough cars to separate into three classes – 300M, 300M Special, and Intrepid/LHS/Concord. We commanded more of the showfield and allowed for 9 cars to be recognized with showfield awards. Through both member and corporate donations we had a hugely successful raffle, raising more than $600 for the club. This cash was directly deposited into the club bank account and will help to keep us up and running into the future. People walked away with some pretty spectacular goodies including a Google Home Mini, bucket of Stoner’s products valuing more than $100, DVD changer, RB1, and many, many more!
As we continue to wrap-up the post-Carlisle activities in our house, I wanted to remind you all of some very limited edition items for sale. Please know that we will NOT order these again – once they’re gone, they’re gone forever! Buy some spares to avoid the look Bob (FIREM) had when he dropped his final pint glass on the hotel parking lot a few years ago. Don’t be without backups! We have coffee mugs, pint glasses, bottle openers, key chains, and special showfield plates. Checkout the for sale threads here.
The latest edition of the club newsletter was an impressive one – I hope you all have had the opportunity to check it out! I continue to be impressed with the people that make up this club, the knowledge that is shared among the memberships, and how we remain after 25 years! Many thanks to those that contributed in the creation of the newsletter and I hope you all enjoy the read.
Tradition continued and the Carlisle Best in Show club award winner, Robert Knapp (LUNATIC) was also our July Ride of the Month winner. Our membership voting contests will return for August. Keep an eye out for the contest mid-month and thanks for your continued support of the contest – it’s shaping up to be a great calendar!
Our final 2018 club event will take place in October in Ocean City, Maryland. If you enjoyed Carlisle, you won’t want to miss this one! As a nice goodbye to summer, this event is very low key and enjoyable for the whole family. We eat great food, soak up some sun, drive the cars on the boardwalk in a parade, and share many laughs. Come checkout the beach, the boardwalk, the cars, and enjoy the car club family!
Who would have thought this club would be ahead of its time with something?! Offering free and unlimited online photo storage for all members is something we’ve done since the beginning and continues to be a great perk of membership. With digital photography being the way of today, photo storage can become a challenge. I invite you to use your club photo storage space to maintain your car pictures and remember how easy it is to move them there. You can email them 300mclub+your member email@example.com. Have pictures from Carlisle? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our activity on social medial has been great this year and I appreciate you all participating in discussions and posting pictures. Keep up the great work. Want your car featured? Send your picture or tag the club when you’re out and the car is looking good!
