President’s Message 2021

WHEW! 2020 is finally over! What an interesting year we just survived. 2020 was the 25th anniversary of our club, and despite (or to spite) COVID, we celebrated and zoomed throughout the year! Zoomed both in our cars and due to circumstances ZOOMed our meetings!

I miss seeing all of you! Thank you for your confidence in me to be your president. I’m sure I’m not the only one who misses the camaraderie of in-person meetings. We have a lot of plans this year, and as soon as it’s safe, we will resume having our meetings back at Big’z. They miss us, and we surely miss them!

We have an exciting year to look forward to as a club. Your Board of Directors is off to a full-throttle start. We met Jan. 10th and reappointed Harry Maxwell as the membership director, Don and Judi Privett as our webmasters, Vice President Jimbo Treat as our Ambassador of Membership, and appointed George Lucas as the newsletter editor.

We had our annual planning meeting earlier this month too. While the calendar isn’t as populated as it normally would be, we still have a lot of events to look forward to! We have weekend overnight trips planned this year (some are already on the calendar). Miatas at the Gap Aug 5-8, and Mark Hungerman is planning a trip through Arizona Sept 4-12! There are also events on the calendar sponsored by other clubs, so check the website calendar regularly.

Thank you again everyone! Let’s keep our club going strong! Encourage club members you know – or even ones you don’t know – to attend the meetings and runs. If you don’t see someone for awhile, call them. Tell them you miss them. Our encouragement of one another during this time will uplift us all and encourage the club to grow!

Thank you everyone, and keep on Zoomin’!
