Fellow LH Owners and Enthusiasts,
What's the saying? April showers, bring May flowers?! I think we're in for some enormous flowers just in time for Indy! It has been so great to see the activity on the club Facebook page noting the great spring projects that club members have going. Keep up the good work with wrenching and prepping your rides for great cruising months - if we wrench the weather will eventually catch on!
Spring means something big to our club - Indy!! It's just over a quick month away! If you have not been but are considering attending, I couldn't possibly recommend enough that you go. There is nothing like walking into Indy Motor Speedway, seeing the pagoda, walking over the bricks, and feeling the energy. This meet is full of bucket list items so don't miss it! Check out the details here.
We will also be making our annual excursion to the New York Auto Show, check out the details here and consider joining us. I am looking forward to checking out the new Chrysler 200.
As you may or may not know, every active club member receives photo sharing space on Fotki.com. This membership benefit allows you to store pictures of your ride and share them with other club members. In the last few weeks, the Fotki member folders have been better organized. Members who use this perk and have pictures in their folder are grouped together. Those who don't are in a separate folder allowing viewers to more easily review pictures. Additionally, photos of club events have also been organized. We hope that this enhances Fotki as a resource for you!
From our main forum page, check out the great new links! Thanks to Corey (null26) for making these buttons to our social media outlets. They really stand out and are a great addition to our page. Be sure you're contributing to growing our social media span by posting to our accounts.
The 2014 Board of Directors meeting is now complete. It was another well organized and efficient meeting of all directors. There were many good ideas talked about including ways to grow our membership, meeting planning, database enhancements, and overall site improvements. Keep your eye out for meeting minutes to be posted in the weeks to come.
From this meeting, we were able to arrive at a new charity giving program. The details will be rolled out in the next few weeks so be sure you're checking in to see how our club is supporting good work!
As you are perusing the club pages, viewing other member's rides keep in mind that nominations are always welcome for cars to participate in the Ride of the Month contest. See a great ride you want to see complete? Contact Ryan with the member and look out for a new competition each month. Self nomination, anonymous submissions, and other suggestions welcome! This program can not work without your willingness to participate and the embracing of the new class system. If you are nominated I hope that each and everyone one of you would say yes.
If you've been reading these messages each month and find yourself continuing to return to the club page and aren't a member yet, please consider joining us! It's easy, inexpensive, and opens up some great resources and benefits to you. Please click here to join us! If you know your current membership will be expiring soon, be sure to renew here. You'll be receiving a reminder just in case you forget to renew!
