President’s Message – March 2018

After a frigid January start, we have enjoyed unusually mild weather lately. The warmth makes us yearn for those top-down days of spring and the CFMC activities which are right around the corner.
I want to thank Elton and Tammy Ellison for hosting our February 10 event to the NC aquarium at Ft. Fisher and the wonderful lunch and tour of Southport. Over 30 club members participated in this outing.
In addition, the Tech Day on February 24 attracted the largest participation ever. Our thanks go to Paul Reinmann for arranging the event and for bringing the pizza!
These levels of participation indicate the commitment of our members to supporting our CFMC. If we continue to focus on activities and events that are fun and enjoyable, our club will continue to thrive and flourish. The key is member commitment, through hosting and participating in CFMC activities. Remember, this is your club and your thoughts, ideas and suggestions are encouraged and solicited by voicing them to the CFMC officers and committee chairs.
The Executive Committee (officers and Committee Chairs) also met on February 10. Minutes of that meeting are included in this month’s Ragtop Tales. Dates for
our 2018 Quarterly Business meetings have been established for April, July and October. Please see the activities column for specifics. I look forward to seeing you at our next CFMC outing. Zoom Zoom!
