From the Helm

I hope this message finds you well. By the time this goes to print, we will be in the thick of the holiday season. I wish all of you and your families a happy, healthy and restful holidays. As we put the wraps on 2023, I’m looking forward to the new year and the outboarding adventures it will bring. We will be kicking off the new year with some important upcoming items for the chapter.

The big thing in 2024 is chapter officer elections. All executive board positions except for 2nd Trustee are up for election. We have vacancies that need to be filled for the positions of President and Water Events/Safety Coordinator. I want all of you to give serious thought to running for a board position or nominating someone you think would be a good candidate. The annual chapter business meeting and officer elections will be held at the January meet and I encourage as many members as possible to attend. This is your chapter and you can contribute to its success. Thank you in advance for your consideration. As the old saying goes, Before you complain, have you volunteered yet?

Also, this year the chapter is offering GLC name tags and T-shirts for purchase. At this time, the T-shirt details are still being finalized, so stay tuned for more information and ordering. Name badges will be available to order via your chapter membership renewal form. Please see the accompanying note from Joe Brincat in this newsletter for details. A 2024 GLC membership renewal form is attached in this newsletter. You can submit your renewal in person to Mark Carney at an upcoming meet or mail it to him at the address provided. In addition, to retain membership in the GLC, you need to be a member of the national AOMCI. If your national membership has lapsed, please renew ASAP.

Lastly, the 2024 Meet Schedule is mostly finalized and the calendar is filling out nicely. Many of the popular meets are taking place again, offering plentiful opportunities to socialize, swap parts and run motors. The GLC will have a booth at the Novi Outdoorama again in 2024 and we are looking to use that as an opportunity to recruit new members. If you have any time available, I urge you to join us at the booth and help spread the word about our club and hobby.

See you at the January meet!

Dan Jones, Acting GLC President
