President's Message

December 2015

Last year at this time, I was writing about change’s that occur in our lives, and for my wife and I, it was that both our boys had moved up to Sac. area, and how excited and thrilled we were to have them closer to us.  Well, fast forward a year and now we’re grandparents!!  We’re excited beyond words, and welcome “little” Madison Jade into our family. I say little, she was 10lbs7oz. at birth, not your average baby!! Now I got to keep the Tiger in as best condition for about 18 years and then we’ll see if I can finally get a girl to really drive this car! We are all looking to forward to many enjoyable, healthy, and adventurous years with this precious baby.

             Another significant change is that this is my last month as club president and therefore my last writing to you, the membership and Internet viewers.  Seriously, where has the time gone? Seems like only 36 months ago that I was taking over for Tony!  I would like to thank all of the people that worked so hard over the past 3 years to make this term fun, enjoyable and a great club to be a part of. We had a lot of drives and gatherings throughout the months, and great turnouts for many of those events.
This club is YOUR CLUB, and membership participation is vital for the ongoing success and ability to share experiences and events with one another. I’m still going to be around, and will still host several events throughout the year, but we need your help to make this club run smoothly.  
             Just a reminder to everyone that membership dues should be in the mail to insure we have your current information, and to make sure you are included in the new roster for the 2016 year.  Remember that we are always looking for your articles, stories, journeys, tech tip, or just a quick note of British or any auto interest. We’ll have our crack editing team get it on print and into an upcoming newsletter. By the way, many thanks to Tony Pantoja who has been doing a fantastic job on the Oilspots. Thank you Tony!!

                I would like to remind the members that the Christmas in January gathering will again be hosted by my wife and I. Seems like the membership likes to party at our house.  And we really do enjoy hosting all of you. It will be on Sat. Jan. 2nd .   Look for an email from Bill Pugh, or give me a call / email, I’ll get you all the details.

I hope that if there is some change in your life, and that you may prosper and enjoy every moment of it. Till then……keep the pedal to the metal, your eyes on the road, and enjoy your journey.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year.

Mike Rapoza
