Happy New Year! I’m confident that 2018 will be another great year for our club. I hope you and your pipes are surviving this cold streak! Our neighbors arrived home last evening to find that they had no water. Thankfully no pipes had burst, but their water meter had frozen! The City of Leesburg responded within 30 minutes and they had running water shortly thereafter. Knock on wood, we haven’t suffered anything more than cold fingers and toes.

Your Club Officers and Board met at Kintner House yesterday (Saturday, January 6th) and fleshed out the our activities calendar for 2018. There are a few activities with tentative dates as some of the details still need to fall into place. The calendar will likely grow as we become aware of other events and activities, as it has in the past. But, the bones are there for another active year.

Your Club Officers and Board do our best to bring you a wide array of events and activities. But we would love to get some suggestions for events or activities from you! Whether it’s an idea for a whole new activity or a new idea for an old event. Whether it’s something you’ve had in the back of your mind for a while, saw in a magazine, or experienced with another club, we’d love to hear about it!

Speaking of ideas, here’s a good one! Make 2018 the year you volunteer to help plan one of our events. Contact the listed POC and see if there is anything you can do to help. We especially need volunteers for the Hunt Country Classic every year. However, many of our events could benefit from new hands and new ideas. You could even shadow the current POC with the idea of making the event yours the following year.

Our next big event is our Awards Banquet. This is always a fun night with great company, great food, door prizes, and of course, our annual awards presentation. I very much hope to see all of you there.

Cheers and
