President’s Report – January 2012

Happy 2012 to everyone and my wish for all is an exciting and prosperous New Year. The Kentucky Region is gearing up for another strong DE year with two events in June and September. And with the strong support from BlueGrass Motorsports, our Region will continue offering the best DE experience you’ll find anywhere. Along with those events, we’ll be planning some fun and interesting drives and other events in the coming months. If you have any requests for places to go, please let us know.

This year we’re planning on changing a few things, mainly in the way the PaceSetter newsletter is distributed. Our plans are to go electronic and do away with the postal mailed copy. The new PaceSetter E-version will have more content, hundreds more color pictures and we’ll work towards making it printable on your own printer. Our goal is to shoot for the June or July issue for implementation so it is very important that you make every effort to sign up on the website so you can receive your copy. By signing up you will also get monthly (very limited) notices, mainly concerning membership meeting announcements and when the PaceSetter will be available for viewing. We’ll also be changing the Bylaws to reflect E-voting for Officers.

I would like to see more involvement from the membership this year. I’m very interested in your thoughts on how to make being a member more enjoyable and interesting. For example, we’re having our After Holiday Party Jan 14th and a good time will be had by all. In February, Porsche releases the new 991 and BlueGrass Motorsports will have an unveiling event that we plan on attending. With our Activity Chair’s help we should plan on doing the Asheville/Biltmore Estate weekend, the Tennessee Tubs event in May and many more. The “many more” part is what I’m looking for from the membership. Please take some time to send Steven Rountree or myself an email with your ideas.

So I end with the note about January’s membership meeting. It will be held at El Tarasco Mexican Restaurant at 7:00.

Hope to see you then.

Steve McCombs
