The Steering Wheel
President’s Message from MIKE McNULTY, CPA-PCA President
Holiday greetings Central Pa members, guests and visitors.
Another year has passed and here we are in 2015. So far at the time of this issue the weather has not been too bad here in Central Pa. That being said it will be Farm Show week and we all know what can happen then. I hope all of our members had a relaxing and wonderful holiday season this past year. Just after you receive this month's Sprecher we will be just a week away from the annual holiday party! If you haven't already done so please send your RSVP's so we can get an accurate head count for the event. The date is January 17th 2015 at the West Shore Country Club. Please see the sign up information in this month's Sprecher. We will be hosting our Zone 2 rep this year Cheryl Taylor and her husband Claude. The club is going to thank all of our members that attend with some unique special gifts at this year's event. Members will be presented with an anniversary gift bag stuffed full of goodies. Both the ladies and men will have a special memento celebrating our 50th year anniversary.
We are going to be at West Shore Country Club this year for the holiday party. There will also be a block of rooms available at the Radisson Hotel (717) 763-7117. Please check with Dale Miller for any questions
Right around the corner will be the Swap Meet in Hershey on April 18th. Our region will be hosting the Zone 2 bi-annual meeting on that Sunday the 19th. Lots to prepare for and it's our biggest event of the year. Celebrating the clubs 50th year charter with PCA will be the theme of this year's swap. If you've volunteered before please think about doing so again this year! Please check the Sprecher and emails from the club for times and positions.
Cars and Coffee will be rolling out some events in early January to keep our cars going until the warmer weather arrives. Check the newsletter and emails to find out where and when Tim and Rick will be going in the winter months. They always have a nice time and it's a great way to meet members and to stay in touch over the dreary winter months.
Our AX calendar to date only has one event scheduled so far Sun April 19th but stay tuned for more early spring dates. As HERCO releases our lot to us we will be adding dates as soon as they become available. We always need volunteers so keep that in mind for the 2015 season.
The last DE was held over the Thanksgiving weekend with a nice turnout for a November track day. Look for the early season dates in the newsletter or contact Steve Baun if you'd like to get involved with our DE program. Porsche is working with the zones and regions to bring everyone up to speed (no pun intended) with the new technologies these amazing cars have. Check out a DE if your schedule permits in 2015. Everyone who goes comes back hooked.
As mentioned before we are going to be at West Shore Country Club this year for the holiday party. There will also be a block of rooms available at the Radisson Hotel (717) 763-7117. Please check with Dale Miller for any questions regarding the rates and block of rooms that will be available to our members following the night's holiday party. We know some members are planning on attending from a distance and we want everyone to be safe both coming and going to this year's event.
The club meets the 1st Tuesday of every month at the Lancaster Liederkranz. Good food great beer great company. Don't miss an opportunity to see how the club runs. We have an Exec board and directors members meeting each month with the general membership invited.
I guess by now you have guessed that I will 'your' president for another term in 2015. I like to be the first to thank all of our Executive, directors and committee chairs for a great 2014. A few learning curve issues on my part in my 1st term but nothing that was a show stopper. I look forward to being your president again in 2015 and seeing more of you at our events. We are trying to bring you more events that appeal to all of our members. If you have any suggestions or comments please reach out to me either via email or by phone.
Stay warm… we only have a couple of months of the chilly weather then we will be right back into spring and enjoying these wonderful machines. Start making your spring fix it, maintenance lists the nicer days will be here before you know it. That's what I keep telling myself every time I have to shovel snow! LOL
Be safe, be well.
