President’s Message – September 2018

With the approach of Labor Day, we realize that the waning days of summer
are here. But for those of us familiar with the significance of the
June- November period in this area, we realize that we are in the midst of our
most active time for the potential for hazardous weather. Now is the time for
all of us to make sure that our hurricane preparedness plans are complete
and in place; just in case. We don’t have to cringe in fear, but we do need to
be aware, vigilant and prepared. At the same time, we begin to anticipate the
crisp fall mornings that lie ahead; a perfect time for enjoying top- down
weather in our Miatas. And we have upcoming CFMC events that will allow
us to do just that, including a much anticipated trip this month to the Bird
Island Preserve, October’s trip to the Highland Games in Laurinburg, a
possible CFMC rally-type event in November and our annual holiday party.
Specifics on the upcoming trips to the Bird Island Preserve and the Highland
games are included in this issue of the Ragtop Tales. Early indications are
that we will have great participation in these events. We continue to grow
our club with addition of new members. Please make sure that you welcome
our new members and I encourage you to share ideas and information about
what makes our club great; our members and the fun, friendship and
fellowship that we enjoy. I hope everyone makes the most of the remaining
days of summer, and that you take advantage of the opportunities to enjoy
the many fall events and festivals that our beautiful area has to offer.

Zoom-Zoom!
