Message From the President
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
It has felt like forever, but I do believe that spring is here in New England. We’re still getting some cool and rainy days but the trees and flowers have decided it’s time and it’s starting to be very beautiful around here. At our house, this means we move the patio set out from the basement (freeing up a lot of space) and clean out the stashed car projects to get working on them! I love this time of year for many reasons! Up next that oh-so-wonderful yellow-ie film that will blanket EVERYTHING outside – AKA pollen! We will work hard to ignore it and find even more pride in polishing up our rides!
Another telltale sign of spring is all the great projects on the forum. The winter months typically are a bit slower online and I’m always so happy to see the posts swing back come spring. It’s exciting to see personal threads updated with project wish lists and completion pictures. Or a conversation about maintenance questions or preferred tools or products. Thanks to all who participate in these great conversations, offer help to other club members, and keep our cars running. This activity is reflective in keeping our membership numbers strong which keeps this group positioned for the future!
In just a few short weeks, a small group of club members will gather in Indianapolis, IN for the 102nd running of the Indy 500! While the club has held meets prior to the race in past years, only a few have actually seen the race in person. The group is very excited to gather once again and take in The Greatest Spectacle in Racing! Stay tuned for a happenings thread!
Time is ticking away and Carlisle will be here before we know it! Please keep an eye out for posts regarding items you need to sign up for if you plan on joining the meet. The hotel has a few king rooms left and these un-booked rooms will be released in June. The food thread is up and awaiting your payment – thanks to those who have already paid. The sooner you are able to make your payment the more appreciated it is for food planning. Award categories were posted and there’s talk of using an electronic voting system (YAY!). Great progress has been made on club member goodie bags and they’re shaping up to be quite special – I can’t wait to get mine! The club t-shirt thread will be up next along with a special edition of the newsletter is being talked about and other ways we can make this meet unique! We’ve said it a lot but I can’t stress it enough – if you’re passionate about these cars, have ever thought about meeting up with the group, or just looking for a new summer adventure – Carlisle 2018 is the event to commit to!!
Believe it or not that will bring us to Ocean City! The hotel has been booked and a post will be made once the reservation process is confirmed. I know this meet tends to be a smaller group of people but I do encourage anyone who is interested or close to come check it out! The weather is typically wonderful, the food is delicious, it’s laid back and much more casual than Carlisle. Please consider joining the group this year!
A Spring embroidered club merchandise order is in the works so keep an eye out for that. For ONE TIME ONLY you will have the option of selecting either the traditional club logo or the new 25th anniversary club logo. Please consider purchasing a variety of items to document this milestone. A forum post is coming soon after a few last things get worked out!
We are back on track with the Ride of the Month contests. The transition into the New Year always scrunches the first few months together so it’s nice to be back on track. Thanks for your continued participation and voting! We’re always looking for participants so please consider it. You’ll be placed in a contest that has like cars and is always fun to highlight what makes yours unique. The May contest will be up soon!
