Well we’re off to an exciting start in January by changing the monthly meeting restaurant at the last minute due to a fire. But it didn’t seem to deter very many since the turn out was better than average. Thanks to all for dealing with this inconvenience, we’re shaping 2016 into a get out there and get involved year. Whether it’s the two DEs in June/September or the monthly driving tours/events, T.H. has put together a large list of things we could do. He handed out a list, asked for the 33 members attending the January meet to select what interests them, or to write in anything else which wasn’t on the list that Kypca could do in 2016. If the rest of the 200 plus members should have any other ideas of something different, interesting and fun to do, let us know either through email or Facebook posting (see page 10).
Some other items of interest we should plan to do are several Tech sessions at Bluegrass, Tony’s shop (Stuttgart Specialists) or at someone’s home garage. I’m looking for inputs from the general membership, on what they would like to see in these Tech sessions. A fun thing we’re planning is to have a “Garage Envy” contest. Most likely will do this starting in May after the Derby. If any of these things sound good to you and you would like to help out, let me or T.H. know so we can get it on the calendar.
We as “The Kentucky Region” are in good financial shape with the strong help from the DE events. If it wasn’t for these events we wouldn’t be able to have the fun, food and fellowship meetings we’ve been having. So, if you’re interested in learning more about your car’s performance and you as a driver, you should sign up for one of these DE events. Yes it can be a little pricy, but it’s cheaper than a speeding ticket on the streets. Most people know things that are worth having and doing usually have a premium price tied to it.
As we all know this is an election year. Huge decisions are being made or planning to be made either for or against our way of life. As for my two cents, I strongly suggest you study the candidates. Know as much about them as you can. Share that knowledge with others and be an educated voter. Vote on what you’ve found out not what someone on TV is telling you to do. VOTE SMART. This will be all I have to say about this in these newsletters.
Our February meeting will be at Rafferty’s on Dutchman Pkwy at 7.
See you then.
