    The Holidays are behind us now, but from my perspective, it all went too fast! Barely a moment to sit and soak it all up with all the hustle and rush to get ready, events and gathering with friend before Christmas which included our annual trip to see the Revels in Cambridge with an overnight in a wonderful inn right there in the hub. Then it’s Christmas! Poof, it is over in a flash as we drove to Lansing, Michigan to spend time with our daughter and husband and our two grand kids, special as they are! That was great but then there was the long drive home just in time for New Year’s Eve and to welcome in the New Year with football. Now I just have to start the cut back and shed a few extra pounds that somehow just piled on while all that was going on. Who Knew! …. I hope all went as well with all of you, Happy New Year!

    Things will resume as usual with our first meeting of the year at the BBC on January 17th at 7:00. At that meeting we like to start listing the calendar events for the year, repeat many cherished events and have the opportunity to add some fresh new ideas for the upcoming season. So come prepared with your ideas and input to help plan your club’s activities. Doing a little work on your car? Great opportunity to hold a Tech Session and get a little help with the project and have a fun gathering at the same time. Bring a time and date and we’ll put it on the calendar.

    We know now that the Winterfest activity has moved to Saturday March 10th, a bit later than usual, but still in time for a much needed winter break and a fun activity. So be sure to mark this new date on your calendar and plan to attend. The more of us there, the more fun it will be! I am sure there will be more details at the January meeting.

     We are still looking for members who are interested in serving as an officer or running for the BoG. The nominating committee and I are still open for members to volunteer to put their name on the ballot and the committee and I will be calling some of you to encourage you participation. Don’t be timid about this, it is your club and you have something to offer so through your hat into the ring and get involved.

    Let’s all hope that 2012 will be a great new year for each of you and your families and also for the club. Start the club year off right by attending the January meeting.

    Till then,

    We had a little bump with our PayPal transactions that effected about 8 members renewals. You will most likely be credited back your initial renewal fee. I will contact the effected members to rectify the situation. All is now working properly.

    Along with your renewal applications, some of you have put in request for window decals. Just a heads up that we will get to these and have not forgotten your request.

    Happy New Year!

    The British Marque combines their January/February issue so I am off the hook, so to speak, for publishing a regular January “Boot”. December is a light month as far as club activities goes, with the exception of the Dallaire’s open house party on December 17th. Mike and Pam have posted the invitation on the home page and I encourage everyone to enjoy the season together with other club members and friends at their home. I am sure it will be as enjoyable as always.

    Because this time of year is so full of events and activities building up to and including the Holidays that mostly involve families, CCBCC has always postponed our club activity until February. February usually needs a bit of a pick me up as the dust has settled from the holiday hustle and bustle and the dull grind of winter has set in with its short daylight hours and long nights and the weather…..well, is  frightful. So holding our “Winterfest” activity in mid February is a welcomed treat. Donna Lynn Greene and Pam Dallaire are planning the event this year and I encourage everyone to mark it on your calendar and plan to join in on that special winter occasion.

    Until then, think about the great times you had this season driving your LBCars and make a list of all the things you need to fix in preparation of the next driving season. You’ll want to be ready when that first spring day appears when you feel that inner call that says “let’s get the car out, put the top down and go for a ride”. Doesn’t seem so urgent now, but remembering struggling through the past few winters and springs in south eastern MA and the Cape, February, March and April can seem like an eternity. So here is one other thing that you can think about during those months, and that is to think about running for a BoG position or putting your name in the hat for an officer position. We are looking to elect up to 4 BoG positions and we need to elect a Vice President and a President at the Annual May Meeting. It is your club and each one of you has something special to offer. Being part of the leadership is a rewarding experience, a great way to know and work with other club members while you have the opportunity to steer the club into the future. Think about it and e-mail or give me a call to add your name or someone else’s name that might be too shy to volunteer themselves.

    Yes, don’t forget there will be the regular meeting at the Sandwich BBC on Jan. 17th.

    Till then,   Ho Ho Ho!  Have a wonderful Holiday Season, and enjoy the warmth of family and friends!

    Hi Richard,

    What a great surprise when I opened the large envelope that came in the
    mail yesterday.  A formal "thank you"  will be sent out next week, but I
    just had to let you know that we were all so overwhelmed by the generosity
    of the British Car Club and your efforts to raise funds for our Holiday
    Helping program.

    We have over 30 families signed up for our program and your gift cards and
    check donation will go a long way in giving them an opportunity to shop
    for and enjoy the holidays.

    Again, I am overwhelmed by your kindness and thank you soooo much,

    have a wonderful holiday,
    Chris Morin

    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 a65jaguar@msn.com/  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
