New Board Members

Congratulations to our newest board members, Lori Wright as Events Coordinator and Taylor Smith as Vendor Liason!!

Thanks to all who stepped up to volunteer for the positions, and for those who voted.

Lycan Motorwerks – 2 gift certificates

Lycan Motorwerks has offered our club 2 HUGE gift certificates ($2500 and $5000) good toward custom labor for work done at their shop. You must buy parts through them, but our club discount for parts (35%) still stands. This certificate can only be used for one shot, so it is best for major work.

Contact Mike at if you are interested.

These will probably go very quickly. This is a great opportunity for doing some serious work on your MINI!!!

Board Member Elections

We have had a few members express interest in our Vendor Liason and Events Coordinator positions.

We will be having a general membership vote for these positions, and the poeple with the most votes will win!

Please read the Bio's below, and send in your favorite choices for the two positions to Steve Rosenblum by Sunday November 6th, 2005.

One vote for each position per active Club membership. If your membership has lapsed, you still have plenty of time to send in your Membership Renewal before voting closes.

I want to send out a big THANK YOU! to all who have expressed interest in these positions…
