Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
It's officially fall and you know what that means - beautiful foliage, cold nights, and the last club meet of the year! It's just amazing to me how fast time flies - literally it feels like we were thinking about Indy just a bit ago. It is now five months later and we find ourselves talking about the last official meet of the year.
I know, I know, you're either tired of hearing about it or you don't believe me - BUT the new club website IS coming along and I'm super excited about it! We have finalized a template to work with and the customization is well on its way. To be honest, I've been surprised at how much work it turned out to be. It's important to me that we preserve much of the club's site history while bringing the new site up to current trends. I hope that you will join me in embracing the new page layout and spend some time familiarizing yourself with the new site once it's live. For now, I will keep coding and look forward to sharing it with the club membership.
As I've previously mentioned, the club's final meet of the season happens this week - Endless Summer Cruisin' in Ocean City, MD. I know the group that is planning on attending is excited and looking forward to a great time. We'll take any weather we get and make the best of it like last year - French fries and ice cream! For those of you not able to join us, please check out the updates on the forum, follow us on Facebook, check out Instagram for live pictures, and be on the lookout for a write up once the meet ends.
As the end of the year approaches, so do the annual Board of Director elections. I ask you to please consider giving back to the club by donating your time to serve as a board member. It is these volunteer efforts that keep the club going and going well! There is a large variety of responsibilities that can fit into anyone's life - ranging from responding to emails on club matters to monthly tasks. It'd be great to have some new people participate and be a part of the club's tomorrow - it's important for the longevity of the club and we are eager to have NEW FACES join us and bring some energy to the club! All you need is a bit of free time and a desire to help move the club forward. Please email me with any questions and keep an eye out for the official post that will be coming soon to the forum.
Do you have a video of your LH? Perhaps you have a walk around video of your modifications or a tour of your lights? Please send it to me so I can add it to our club YouTube page. We're always looking for new rides to highlight and ways to show them off and are eager to grow our YouTube page.We are hoping that the page develops into another source of new members for the club and with your help we're certain that it can. Having an extensive selection of videos will help to achieve this. This video clip may be posted from a clip made on a smart phone - it does not have to be fancy.
Don't be surprised next time you print new club brochures, they've been updated! As we continue to keep the club fresh, we are constantly reviewing our materials and making updates and changes. Check it out, print some, and discard your old ones. We invite all club members to tuck a few brochures in their glove box and when they see a LH in their travels, leave one for them! The same goes for the wiper cards which will be getting a makeover soon as well.
