(um) So let me just cut right to it. We have a lot on the calendar this coming month. I just looked at a calendar and I thought, I believe the (the) most we go in the entire month of April is three days without an event, there are many days we have double events going on across the state, so just a lot to do, a lot of offerings, so as a BMW Car Club member particularly the one for Florida SunCoast BMW you have options to go come and go and do different things a variety of things across the state and we’re very very proud of as we (as we) really round out this Area Governor energy to bring these events to you. I want to just go through a quick list and and now it’s getting so long that even my memory can’t keep up with it, so I’m going to refer to the calendar real quick. On the first we have two events: Sarasota BMW Sarasota Cars and Coffee this Saturday, with tomorrow after you see this, and then on the same day (uh) we’re doing the Panhandle Spring Country Drive up in (uh up in) the (uh) Panhandle area.
