Message From the President
Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
All of a sudden it seems like life is going in fast forward! The weather turns nice and here in New England, it feels like everything starts happening at once! The ‘winter projects’ are being called upon by the car whether I completed them or not. Working on the cars is just an assumed activity whether it’s installing brake lines, replacing a canister, or detailing the smallest of crevices. I wait so many bitterly cold months for this time of year, it always feels like it’s fleeting. I’m thankful for the knowledge that this group provides to do such projects in the driveway and support of club members for trouble shooting and wrenching on the fleet! I hope that each of you have found as many resources within this group and are enjoying the start of summer!
To kick off the summer months, a small group experienced the greatest spectacle in racing over Memorial Day weekend and attended the Indy 500! What an amazing time we had! While the hours of miles drive were many for the group, it was well worth the time together and being a part of such a cool event. The tradition, patriotism, and excitement are indescribable. We’re so thankful to Mike (BigMike60) for obtaining tickets for a large group and for John and Barb (BeeSpecial and BarbSpecial) for hosting us for the weekend. We had some July-in-Carlisle-like temperatures for the weekend and, as always, shared some wonderful laughs together!
We’ve been talking about and planning it for months – Carlisle is not far now! As a matter of fact, in just about a month we’ll be packing up the cars and uniting for an awesome weekend! We currently have 51 registered cars for the event which is so amazing! It’s certainly going to be special to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the LH platform at such a large event If you’re planning on attending be sure that you sign up for food (ASAP), purchase your event t-shirt (June 28th deadline), and book a hotel room (June 13th deadline). Our goodie bags are going to be amazing, you don’t want to miss out! Raffle prizes are also shaping up to have a big selection. For those not joining the event, don’t worry you can still be a part of it. Feel free to purchase an event shirt – it will be a unique opportunity to have a 25th anniversary commiserative shirt. Just add your name and details to the list, send your payment via Friends and Family, and we’ll sort out shipping following the event. We’ll also have a thread on the forum going throughout the weekend to update the club on how we’re doing. There will be pictures and updates throughout the weekend so be sure to check-in often.
The Ride of the Month is cruising right along for the year and since the July winner will be decided at Carlisle, the June contest will take place toward the end of the month to bridge the lull in voting. Our regular monthly contest will resume in August and continue through the end of the year. If you’re interested in participating in the contest please reach out. It’s a fun way to showcase your car. Thanks so much for all who have offered to be a part of the contest and to all those members who vote each month. It’s shaping up to be another great calendar!
We just placed our embroidered club merchandise order for the summer – thanks to all who participated. Looking forward to seeing members sporting their gear and I can’t wait to get my own 25th anniversary logo shirt. Additionally, a while back I posted a poll about ordering coffee mugs and pint glasses. With a contacting a new vendor and getting things set up, they should be arriving here in MA soon. As soon as they arrive, will have coffee mugs and pint glasses for sale – details soon so keep an eye out for the post.
While our membership has been very active, new members have slowed a bit. I know you see LH cars in your travels – do you have club flyers in your glove box? Do you have membership business cars in your wallet? When’s the last time you tagged a car with club information? Do your part and advertise this great resource to others. Let’s keep growing our membership!
