Hey guys, Stan Dale, President Florida SunCoast BMW. Hope you’re doing well. Hey (uh) got to get used to this time change (uh) shooting videos late at night. I’m gonna gotta figure out a new plan here. Hey a couple things on the agenda tonight let me tell you about (uh) upcoming (uh) we just uh getting ready to open the nominations for some leadership positions on our on our Board and we’ve got (uh) two or three new Area Governors that in a week or so I’ll be announcing all those appointments as well. So (uh) just a lot of exciting things as we go off into the (into the) next coming year 2023 with (uh) with Florida SunCoast. It’s been an exciting year. A year that we’ve seen a lot of growth and a lot of activities (uh) happen and we have some more (uh) on (on) slate some really cool news as we continue to grow and develop and and do some neat things here with the Chapter. So (uh) thank you to all those folks that have stepped up put their names on the list (uh) you’ll you will serve in some capacity, I promise you. We have a lot of things going on and we need a lot of volunteers to help make that happen so (uh) thank you to the folks that have (uh) put your step forward to put their name name on on the line for us. A couple of things let me just tell you, we’re back (uh) I promised myself I never use this word again but I guess if I have to in the description (uh) post covid (uh) we are now opening up (uh) and trying to get back to a regular schedule our our end of the year (uh) luncheon or dinner we’re not quite sure what it’s going to be yet we’re working out the numbers. Our Senior Board member, Russ Garvey, is (uh) doing the the drill down as we speak. I think the date is going to be January 21st, we’re negotiating, doing the final negotiations for (uh) for the event and it should be a really cool event. Russ does not (uh) Russ doesn’t do anything halfway, he he puts his whole heart into it and so I think it’s going to be a really cool event as we (uh) as we get (uh) get get ready for it. So got that coming up (uh) Sebring is (uh) just around the corner as we speak, I think we’re about two weeks out for Sebring, (uh) December the 3rd. So the remember with Sebring you have two things to do, you have to RSVP that to the FSC board and then you also are FSC RSVP and then you have to purchase your ticket across the HSR line so make sure you purchase the Saturday Corral ticket, that will make sure that you get into the Corral and that you get the drive on the track. I think they’re only 30 bucks so it’s not much, actually I think it’s (uh) maybe even a little bit less than what we did the last time we did this. I think this is our 11th year going and we already have a crowd we’re coming so come on, apparently you folks are not not afraid of my cooking, so we’re gonna have lunch out there we’re gonna have a great time it’s always great to get together with the Sebring folks. You’ll get a special email from me once we get a little bit closer to it, talk about touring, who’s going to drive out, how we’re going to get there from all the different locations around around the state. So look forward to that, if you’re not a part of it, come on and jump on the bus Gus, it’s going to be fun we always have a great time at Sebring and you get total access to all the track, to the paddocks, to the cars, you can get right to the pits, you can see the track from any vantage point you want to you’re not limited where you can go on the track to see the races and you’re going to see cars that are Legacy cars you’ll never see race again are on the track here in all different classes and across several different decades of legacies so (uh) for 30 bucks (um) you can’t go anywhere and get a great hamburger like I’m going to cook or you can’t see the amazing cars and and turns 15 and 16 we’re right there at the action at the s-curve just before they take those straight away so we have we have some great opportunities for some just some awesome photographs, so come on out and join us at Sebring and then we have our regulars that are going on please please check all the rsvp’s down below. If you’re traveling around the state on any given time. we are now (um) we’ve got multiple events on multiple on the same days going on sometimes, you get a chance to choose what you want to do and where you want to be or if you’re going to be somewhere you’ve got other opportunities, so check it out, the Area Governors are really working hard for you (um) we’re we’re planning, in fact, I just talked to her today (uh) by email (uh) there’s a lot of plans up in that Gainesville/Villages/Ocala area.
