CAROLINAS AUSTIN-HEALEY CLUB

  
 

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE & RAMBLINGS


     Wow, it is hard to fathom that the year is one half over. On the other hand the second half is chocked full of great Healey events.

     I hope to see a bunch of you at the annual mountain trip in a couple of weeks. This test run for next year’s southeastern promises to be a really outstanding event. I guess I will be seeing you in a SOB of British car since my Healey is presently missing a major component. Her engine is back from the machine shop and is in the process of being meticulously assembled. The goal is to be up and going for Enclave.
While we are on the subject of the mountain trip, please be ready to volunteer as you can for Southeastern next year. Chuck and Monique have taken on a giant task and they will need a lot of help. Many of
us have some prior experience and can help lighten the load considerably.
A special thanks to George for finding the restaurant for our June meeting and grabbing the birthday cake at the last minute for the July meeting and pool party. Thanks also to Bob and Debbie for being such gracious hosts.

     As usual, a big thank you to Debbie and Bill for all the wonderful pictures that memorialize our events.
If you are new to the club and/or have never hosted an event, I challenge you to consider looking into hosting one next year. Our planning meeting is just around the corner. Think outside the box. It does not have to be a car event. The model trains museum in February was interesting albeit different and the Ab-ingdon trip was well attended. There are lots of interesting places in the Carolinas that many of us have not seen that would make a fun trip. I would still like to see us make a trip back to Road Atlanta to the Walter Mitty races. Also you are never too old for a beach trip. Give it some though and bring your suggestions to the planning meeting in January.
