November is here already and elections are in a few days, both at National and KyPCA. I would like to ask the membership to come out to BoomBozz Pizza in St. Matthews Nov. 14th and place your vote. (See page 9 for ballot.) Hopefully you feel that I did a fair job because I would like to finish out a second term as your President. So please remember, your vote does matter for everything.
I wasn’t here for the October meeting. I was traveling in Arizona where I attended the Phoenix PCA DE event. It was small, only 25 cars and a one day event. I
understand that most PCA DE events across the country are having problems with getting enough people to make these events happen. We are especially blessed to have Bluegrass Porsche involved, since only a select few have Dealership involvement. Please thank Randy Biery and crew for their involvement, because it is special. And don’t forget the DEs allows us to pay for dinners and drinks at our monthly meetings.
As the driving year comes to a close, I would once again like to thank T.H. Morris and Edward Hessel for their support and efforts in putting together the BEST year ever for KyPCA Driving/Tour events. We can only hope they will be willing to continue in 2017 with an equal or better driving experience. We had a huge crowd for the Huber’s Winery Drive Oct 15th which prompted some arrangement changes that will most likely be implemented going forward. Changes may include smaller groups and a different departing location, but more on that later. Another item on the agenda is the After Christmas Party. It has been requested that we repeat last’s year event with Mark’s Feed Store at Lake Forest Club House for this party. Please work on gathering door prizes. I believe the only decision left is picking a date.
The Kentucky Region has been blessed with quite a few new members this year. I once again ask the membership to help in making these new Club members feel welcome. Please take a few minutes at the meetings or on the drives to introduce yourself to them so they know who we are and that they are part of the best Region in all of PCA. And for us “old timers,” if you can remember how you felt during your first two meetings, step up an offer to bring them into the group. New people are the growth of our Club, and with new people come new ideas. This is my public announcement for the month.
I hope you see you all at the November 14th monthly meeting at BoomBozz in St. Matthews. Meeting starts at 7:00pm. (or some say 6:30).
Steve McCombs (2016 KyPCA president)
