FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT

Well the elections are over and with only eight board members nominated all were elected. The Executive board ran unopposed so there was no need for a ballot vote. The members of the new board will take their offices on June 1, 2001. So at this time I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the newest members of our Board of Directors. They are:  Dave DeHem and Cory Russell with current Vice President Jim Buckley moving over to the Board and Rob Michon as our new Vice President.  Susan Ginter has retained her position as the club’s Secretary/Treasurer.  Also, I would like to say a very Special Thank You to parting board members Ken Pachla, Tim Gietzen, and Jody Hallin for serving the club for the past two years...

FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT

It’s getting closer and I can just hear the motors being tuned and just a slight smell of the racing fuel in the air. Another racing season soon to commence. Here’s to the soon to be crowned 2001 champions and have a safe and fantastic racing season to all of you race-aholics.

Last month we lost a special racer in John Fedricks. John was a great driver back in the 40’s & 50’s in USAC Sprints & Midgets and was inducted into the Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame a few years ago.

Our thoughts & prayers go out to his family.

Also, long time member Alex Spence passed away on March 18th after a long illness. His wife, Adele, had been our Secretary/ Treasurer for many years and we send our deepest sympathy to her and her family at this time.

FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT

Another racing season is just about upon us and I can’t wait. Our club is growing with all kinds of new members and any old members have returned again after long absences. Racing is a major part of most of our lives and we should be grateful to our families who allow us to continue our most favorite past time. Remember your family is most important and racing is and can be a family sport. Keep safe and race hard for those 2001 Championships.
