A Glimpse Into Our Past
By Bonnie Mueller
I was looking for inspiration to write an article- I told Jim that I would write about all the cars we have had……but he told me I had already done that. Sure enough, after reading every newsletter from now till 2012 I found it - in the February 2012 newsletter. Funny, he thought it was just a year or two ago, I didn’t even remember it. Are we getting old or what?
But, what I found going back, was that a large amount of our fantastic club-members have had so many experiences with cars, racing, and life in general! Fun to read- You must go back and re-read our old newsletters! They're all available online at eescc.org/Publications.cfm#MonthlyNewsletters
Things I noticed:
- Our entry fee for an autocross only changed $5, used to be $15 member cost, since 2001 - $20 member cost now. You can NOT have so much fun for $20 anywhere else!!!
- Below I have listed some fun articles written by our diverse crowd of members and friends – check out these, but don’t stop at these. Reread all the articles, for all the years. In re-reading these articles and newsletters, you will gain a small glimpse into the club’s history.
- I need to write a “Lemons part 2, the racing. Maybe my next article.
