Message From the President
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
It feels like I blinked and we’re turning the calendar to August – how? I don’t even know where 2019 is going but it’s doing so very fast. Is it me, or does it seem like lately the LHs have been fighting us? It’s really been amazing the support that comes from this group when issues arise for our cars. They truly would not exist if it was not for this group! As you all look at the month ahead I hope you’re eager for the miles you’ll drive. It’s a given there will be projects on the car as well – some welcome, others not as much – but we’re here to help and together we’re keeping these cars thriving!
It’s even harder to believe that Carlisle is behind us and all wrapped up. It was another super successful meet and much fun was had! There’s a great write up posted if you want the full weekend’s happenings. For the first time in a long time the group did something different – gasp!! Weeelll, not by choice! If you happen to be following the threads leading up to the weekend, we found out VERY last minute that the restaurant we have held our Saturday night club dinner at for the last 10+ years, abruptly closed for business. No notice, no communication…despite the signed contract we had with them. After a bit of run around and some help from our fabulous membership we had a reservation in less than 12 hours knowing about this abandonment. Low and behold, it was around the corner from our hotel and turned out AMAZING! The owner checked in on us and sent the room a huge tray of appetizers! The manager checked on us and invited us back next year! We heard so many raving reviews of the food and service. It was an adventure for sure as this group doesn’t often do anything *new*. In the end, it was a huge success and a great story to tell! Beyond the new restaurant, it was the same amazing membership that helps fellow members throughout the entire weekend. The parking lot now has more stories to tell and we’re all back home with additional fond memories!
Up next, before we say goodbye to summer we’ll gather in Ocean City, Maryland for the Endless Summer Crusin’ meet. If you’re planning on joining us please be sure you book your hotel and register your car! It’s a super relaxing meet full of fun and food. Significantly different from Carlisle, we’re much more laid back and casual with our days. Walk the show, relax on the beach, shop the boardwalk, eat the food! It’s so nice to end summer on the beach and driving down the boardwalk in the parade.
There’s been a change to the Ride of the Month contest that we’re excited to share! The showfield winners from our three classes (300M, Specials, and Intrepids) will be out July, August, and September ROM winners!! We’re excited to showcase winners across the classes and amazed that our car club is able to keep Carlisle Events showcasing all models through the division of classes. Our membership voting contests will return in October and close out the year. Please use the next few months to prep your car and put it in a contest!! If it’s something you enjoy seeing every month, we need you to participate! We want to continue this great tradition and create a calendar in the future but can’t do it without your participation!
Our membership continues to be so strong – thank you! We regularly get new members and the forum is as active as ever. Renewals, even when members have moved on from the car, are valued and ensure our future security as a club. Keep up this great work of recruiting LHs that you see in your travels with the business cards and drive conversation with posting on the forum. This club exists for you and because of you…let’s keep it strong!
