It’s the first of October and I’m getting this month’s column out a little later than I’d like. I generally pride myself on being on time for most things. However, the past 10 days or so have been a bit more difficult than usual. After multiple trips to the doctor and many, many x-rays, we now know my wife Becki has a broken fibula AND tibia due to a condition called Charcot foot. (Look it up if you’re really interested), but it may cause me to miss attending our annual biggest event at Manchester Beach. She says go, but I’m not feeling right about leaving her alone. I won’t know for sure for a few days yet, but rest assured, the Bloody Mary bar will still be there in the very capable hands of Lisa Cornelius and Jack Weiglein. This year, due to our Saturday night menu featuring Mexican food, there will be Margaritas available too. The raffle for the set of tires for those who participated in the Where’s My Name contest will also be conducted by Gordy. A good time will be had by all, I’m sure.
Elections will be held in November for officers and directors, and I urge anyone interested in the fascinating world of club operations to let us know so we can get you on the ballot. I have been asking people to take the helm of this club away from me and have been met with thunderous silence. If no one steps up, then I will give it one (AND ONLY ONE) more year. I do enjoy being president, but I also do other things for the club, and I’d like to concentrate more on them.
I’m going to keep this column short this month, hopefully I’ll see you all at Manchester Beach.
Days are getting shorter, let’s get those rides in before the weather does its thing and puts us on 4 wheels.
