The annual dinner, which will be held in January, is truly an event that is not to be missed. While the venue is changing this year, this remains a great opportunity to break out of winter hibernation to visit with friends, enjoy some really great food, and have a chance to win some excellent prizes.

After reading the article you may get the impression that Jackie is as enthusiastic about really good food as I am about cars. You wouldn’t be wrong. Another indoor event is in the works. This one will be new and will catch the interest of driving enthusiasts seeking some friendly competition. Plans for an indoor karting season this winter are being developed, hopefully starting in January. Watch the Breeze and iContact for details. A second new event is also being planned, details may be ready for the November Breeze. Since the Fall Tour is such an enjoyable event, the idea came up, “why only have it once a year”? So plans are in the works for a Spring Fling, which will be essentially a Fall Tour held about six months earlier when leaves are appearing rather than changing colors. The idea was rumored to be hatched over breakfast during this year’s Fall Tour (pun intended, breakfast / eggs / hatched, get it?). Anyway, here are three upcoming events that your fellow club members are devoting their time and talents to make possible. That is something to give thanks for. That and no more bad jokes in this article. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving! JOHN KELLY NEW Venue! “Autocross Greeters, Pres.
