President’s Boot- November 2011

01 Nov 2011 10:03 PM | Bill Scott (Administrator)

We are coming close to the end of the driving season for 2011 and as of this writing; we have two important driving events still ahead, The Martha’s Vineyard Weekend and the Freezin Fun Run 4 Kids. Both are important as the MV weekend is for club members to enjoy each others company in a relaxed beautiful setting soaking up the last breath of fresh air and beauty that this Cape and Islands have to offer. The FFR4K’s is good and cold; good in that it raises money for Independence House so the families served by them can enjoy the holidays too, and cold…well running in mid November with the top down (as you know us British car die-hards do) can sometime be pretty darn cold. We’re up to it though, and feel warm inside for those whom we make the Holidays a little brighter. As you read this on the club website, I encourage signing up for and joining us on these two end of season events

This time of year we think about taking care of our LBC’s and prepare them for the winter, and we also begin thinking about taking care of our club and its business. Our annual elections will be on May 5th, and to prepare for this we must start early. We will be looking to elect at least three new BoG members, my term as President will be complete, and due to circumstances we will be looking to elect a new Vice President as well. We are establishing a nominating committee to find candidate for these positions and we would like to actually have an election, i.e. have more candidates than positions to fill. We’ll spare you any pre election public debates; there is enough of that going on nationally without adding any more. However candidates will have an opportunity to speak at the Annual meeting prior to the voting.

Now is the time to step up. It is your club and you do have something to offer. Please call or e-mail me: 508 896 9313 or  if you would like to put your hat in the ring, or better yet, tell me who you would like to see in any of these positions. Put their hat in the ring and I’ll call them to encourage them to be on the ballot. I think it is good for the club to have an influx of fresh people rotating through these opportunities. It brings fresh thoughts and energy into the running of this club. It is a great way to meet, get to know and work with other members and you can help steer the club’s direction. Even those of you who are often riding rather than driving in these cars, can actually steer the club, so don’t be shy, call me.

Till then,

Bill Scott

President, CCBCC
