Behind the Wheel - June 12
The month of May was loaded with a wide variety of events. It started off with a car show hosted by our good friends over in Port Angeles. You can read more about that show in a separate article.
Our May meeting for the General Membership was full of activities and ran a little long but it was a spectacular and now memorable event. We had two Guest speakers that presented the members with a wealth of information and invitations to future events. Both speakers offered food as part of their invitation. Now that held the attention of many of our members.
Speaking of food we need to give a shout of Thanks to Glenn Mayer for his efforts that allow us to support Food Life Line. Glenn wrote a super article that appeared in the April issue of Pony Express. Donations were up at our May meeting and this is very important as so many people who use the Food Banks also rely on school breakfast and lunch programs to feed their children. So keep those donations coming in and remember for every three items donated we will give you an extra ticket for our general drawing.
Poor Prasantha Jayakody not only missed the May meeting and all the information that our guest speakers provided but he didn’t get to carry home a very complete Jim Beam BBQ set. Oh did I mention that the BBQ set came with an envelope that held $25 in cash so the winner could purchase items of their choice to BBQ as they broke in this new BBQ set. As BBQ weather was upon us and Mother’s Day was only two days away your President made a new rule and authorized a drawing of a ticket for those that were present. Your fellow member Alan Warberg held the winning ticket. He walked away with the BBQ set, $25 in cash and a big smile on his face.
For two months I have asked for volunteers to take over Tack Shack. This is for a long term commitment. If you want to help out in June at the General Membership meeting or during the four (4) days of Round Up then please contact either Robin Mitchell or Joel Schleppi and they will work directly with you. My search is for a couple of people to take on Tack Shack for the rest of the year at a minimum. Now your Board is fully aware that some changes in how Tack Shack operates are in order so if you volunteer you can help shape those decisions. At the May Board meeting the Board also made the decision that if a replacement Chair person for Tack Shack operations is not found soon that the Board would reshape Tack Shack and define the operating times and dates. This is your chance to have an impact on your club and how we serve our members through Tack Shack. As the phrase goes Call US we are ready to deal.
Remember that you can reach me by phone or email with any concerns or ideas. By all means consider volunteering for Tack Shack or any Round Up event. Round Up is the largest Mustang event in the nation every year and it requires numerous volunteers. As always I extend an open invitation to any Board meeting. Come on out and see how your Board handles the business of your club.
Looking forward to your participation in your club.
