The year is fleeting by much faster than the previous year of fear and restriction. Our club remains strong and we continue looking forward.
October has zoomed by without Zoom this year and we are about to gather for our fourth general meeting at Santa Clarita Lanes. Our numbers in attendance have grown and the location seems to suit our needs. Members have been happy to meet and catch up and the feeling of times past is coming back.
I am pleased to see everyone enthusiastic to be together as we meet for our monthly meetings and Thursday socials, but I have a request that will benefit us all. Once the gavel sounds to begin our business meeting, please, please hold the conversation until the conclusion of the meeting so all can hear the reports of the board and comments of members. While we once again have a location for meeting, the acoustics could be better and private conversation overtakes even our microphones. I hope to use the gavel only to open and close our meetings. Whewww, and thanks!
We began October with a delicious lasagna night feed at the Ceo home, even before our October meeting. Thanks went out at our meeting, but now, in black and white, Thanks Connie and Don for lasagna night #5.
The 2023 ZO6 was introduced in October and it will be interesting to watch for it to show up with some of our members, With a purported $90,000 starting price, there will surely be some interested in buying one, especially with optional carbon fiber rims to preclude the cracked rim problem. We will report when the first one arrives.
Our Activities team is working to make our Christmas/Holiday Party a reality this year. Arrangements for a December 4 party at Knollwood Country Club have been made and now is the time to RSVP via Evite. Do it now and mark the date on your calendar.
November brings Thanksgiving at the end of the month, but we can show our thanks to veterans on November 11 by supporting the Veterans Day Parade in Fillmore. It will be a great day to spend a morning.
Great news from your board. Our Newsletter Editor Scott Gregory is back on board with this month’s newsletter. Additionally, the board unanimously approved Donna Nolan’s appointment to the Quartermaster position. Welcome Donna, and to paraphrase one of our members, “Bling It”!
Let’s have a great November together and be sure to welcome the many new members that have joined us lately.
