December Children’s Christmas Party Report: Mother Nature was very kind on the day of our December meeting providing sun and warmer temps. What a great time we all had at our annual Children’s Christmas Party! Each child received a goodie bag upon arrival. Young & old were treated to a fantastic afternoon with Toostee the clown and the awesome balloons made for all in attendance. Everyone was able to have a great lunch provided by longtime club member and supporter Jimmy Gullett. Many Thanks Jimmy! Then it was time for the big man in the red suit to arrive. We all had a sing along with Jingle Bells and then Santa made his way into the hall and greeted all his kid’s big & small. Every child had their photo taken with Santa and all the children used the North Pole Mail Box to mail their Christmas List to Santa and when he was ready to leave, he carried them back to the North Pole with him. Then each child was able to win a door prize in a special raffle for them. Our adult 50/50 raffle was won by Chris Fitzpatrick and he graciously donated his winnings back to the club for next years party. Way to go Chris thank you! A very Special Thanks to Barbara Gullett for all her work you put into this party by chairing it again this year. Thanks Again Barb!

November General Meeting Report: Our meeting at the LaSenorita Mexican Restaurant in Lansing was a packed house. Our guest speakers for the night we just outstanding. First up was John Ward Jr. who was the 2018 Spartan Stock “A” Champion talked a little about his racing career and his championship. John will set aside his driving duties for the 2019 season and now manage the Bandolero series with his new In My Yard Youth Racing program and hopes to help improve the learning that these kid’s need and help with growing this division. We wish him the best! Next up was “Racin” Mason Surgener who gave a great detailed listing of what he has done to gain him a back to back championship in the Sr. Bandolero Division and what his plans are for the future. Up last was the Bandolero Jr. Bandit Champion “Hurricane” Caiden Bailey who did a fantastic job telling our members about his short couple of years racing and was excited about his 2018 championship. Once again, many thanks to all who came and enjoyed the evening with these youngsters who are our future.
