Hey everybody, Stan Dale, President of Florida SunCoast BMW, hope you’re doing well. Hey, weather chased me inside tonight, so we’re trying out a new backdrop, it just (uh) because we can, I guess that’s the way it is. We’re rushing in on the year end and (uh) just wanted to tell you (uh) hey we still have a lot of things on the slate for the month of December. A lot of (uh a lot of) you know regular things we’re doing. Justin up in the Panhandle, Courtney up in the Panhandle, John up in Tallahassee. We’re adding a new Area Governor to the (uh) Forgotten Coast at Panama City area for members in that area, (uh) Chris Schroeder is going to be joining us as an Area Governor there. We drop down to The Villages and we’ll say hello (uh) to Meribeth Culver, she’s taking over The Villages/Ocala/Gainesville area, really excited about that. We come down to North Tampa side, Wesley Chapel, of course, Kevin Tipton and his (uh his) driving group and et cetera all those things over there. Down in the South Tampa the the St Pete/Clearwater area, Tony Getman is handling that area for us, so we appreciate all the effort there we have an OCC coming up so (uh) last one of this calendar year so jump out to the OCC get on board with that. (uh) Kevin’s drives coming up at the end of the month I know up in the north side and then (um) we get down to the Sarasota area (um) you have Rob Hollister who’s taking care of that Sarasota area, he’s aided by our Senior Board member (uh) Russ Garvey and Fran Dance in that area. We have a new area Governor down in the Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda area and that’s going to be (uh) John Schneider is going to head that up and then also going to assist him is (uh) Jim Justice so (uh) helping plan some events in that area, down in the Fort Myers area of course Mario and Carol Villar head that up and we’ve got one more seat to seat and that’s in the in the Naples area. We think we have a (a) right ready governor for that area so we’re looking forward to finishing that up (um). Just let me remind you voting is open, confirmation voting is open on Motorsportreg. Go on the on the site below and you’ll see the link it’s pretty easy. If you don’t have any Motorsport account it’s easy to set up, you know all the information, your name, your member number and those kind of things. Motorsportreg gets an upload of all the member numbers, so once you’re in it’s really easy to do things, register for events and those types of things. We use Motorsportreg for track days or something like that, so anything where we have to pay some money in, like for dinners or whatever something like that where we’re really we’ve got a cost that we have to pass through Motorsportreg is a great platform we use that quite a bit so if you don’t have an account take two minutes and set it up, but we also vote on there it costs you nothing to vote (um) you go in (uh) Florida SunCoast it’s the elections, you go in and you vote and once your vote is done it’s sealed, we don’t see it we won’t see it until the voting is has ended and then we get the (uh) do we get the results no one in the Chapter sees it (uh) until the voting is over with, so we encourage you to just be a part of that but get your voice heard. (um) Today (uh) as this video comes out this is Friday the 16th, so let me just tell you, I think there are 18 tickets left for the dinner on January 21st you need to buy them today (uh), I think the price goes up on the, let’s see 16th 17th 18th. I believe they go up on Sunday, so you have Friday and Saturday to buy tickets to the dinner and then (um uh) hey and then you’re in. It’s going to be an amazing (uh amazing) outing. We’re at The Florida Aquarium, there in Tampa, dinner (uh) a private tour through the aquarium while we’re being served hors d’oeuvres it’s gonna be pretty cool, pretty rich, if you will so (uh) looking forward to that event and then some other cool things happening.

A lot of things happening, a lot of things cooking, you’re seeing the website take on a whole change of (uh of) ownership and Area Governors and those things so (um) and (and) don’t let me forget Jacksonville, I’m sorry Al McKay, I didn’t get you in that list, but Al McKay up in the Jacksonville area does a great job as well so some events going on, I know they just had a dinner last night, well that had been Wednesday night just (uh just just uh) night before last, so a lot of things going on. I have a lot of people to keep up with as we go through this. We are starting a Motorsports (uh) Steering Committee (uh) and that’s going to be pretty exciting for the things that we’re bringing to you drives, rallies, (um) just you name it, Motorsports. (um) we should be, we will have a lot of things to do and a lot of things (uh) to participate in. So we’re getting close to the Holidays as always, travel safely, be safe, it’s about family time, that’s what it’s about but it’s really about one thing, (uh) for this time of year, for those folks that follow that pathway, so it’s about that one thing. Keep that in your heart, keep that in your mind.

So, until then I’m gonna stop for a moment and say I know we’ll get one more video in for this year (uh) next (uh next) week but for now, from me and my family to all of our chapter members, to all of our volunteers, I say merry Christmas, Happy Holidays (uh) Feliz Navidad, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, if I missed a “Happy,” it just put it in there yourself, fill in the blank.
