President’s Boot-   April 2011   

Spring is surely here on the Cape. The sun shines, birds are chirping and cars are rolling out of their long hibernations, and driving events are filling up the calendars for several months ahead. I have taken care of the necessary maintenance on my car with the clear expectation that I am ready for the road ahead.

All would seem idyllic on the surface, but May with its Annual Meeting have been pressing on my attentions of late. This is the time for elections and some officer changes, as well as a time to look at the club as a whole and make adjustments and improvements. The changes in our Home Page using a new system is moving right along towards our switch over date, which might be in July. All this is thanks to Charlie Bohm, Paul Hinchcliffe and Mike Daley for all the work they have been doing to make this user friendly for those of us (myself included) who are not quite as “IT” savvy. I have confidence that they will make this change work for all of us.

The thing that worries me more is that we need new volunteers for various activities that need to take place, activities that make all the things we do as a club, happen. Things like the; newsletter, club Treasurer, media & PR activities, managing the club’s audio/visual equipment, printing needs, etc. If many volunteer to do something, a lot can be accomplished without too much stress on any one individual. The few who have been doing all of these things are stepping down as they have been at it, and doing a great job, for too long. It’s time for change and time for others to step up. You’ll find it fun and rewarding to get involved in the operation of the club, with new experiences gained and new friendships formed. Call me and volunteer your interest and experience. I can promise we have an opportunity just for you.

May also brings some tried and true events, like the “A” Team on the 15th with Rick Johnson and Rich Finlay and the Safety Fast Inspection on the 21st, where Paul Hinchcliffe always has his famous Coney Islands with special hot sauce, Yum! All this leads right into British Car Week with Brits by the Sea in CT on the 5th of June. Let’s go driving!

Till then,

Bill Scott,

President,
