looks like we may revive the old First Flight Cruisers Gazette. The newsletter we used to mail out every month. I would like to hear suggestions on what kind of articles you would like to see in it. also if anyone would be willing to write a monthly column or a one time article to contribute to it.
I will be off line for a short while as I am "visiting" Outer Banks Hospital for a while starting tomorrow. but keep posting your suggestions and I will get them when I can. thanks

Hello LadyDi, With the speed of the internet, free access and no printing expenses, could it be a regular section of the club website? Just a thought. By the way, how did the track time go for the Monte Carlo? I was hoping to stop by Harbinger today but I ran out of time. Next trip, I'll be there. -DT

The thought behind the hard copy newsletter is to reach those that do not visit our site on the net. We have over 50 registered/paid club members but as you can tell by the votes for the calendar... less than half visit our website.

I thought all the mail-in ballots from the missing members were votes for the Black 'Vette.............-DT

here are some of the articles I had in mind. Each month to profile one member and their ride. chosen at random. Maybe some one could test drive a new vehicle and write a review. a monthly calendar with events and birthdates posted. a monthly Tech tip. during the racing season, updates on any members racing preformance, news on any shows attended by club members and trophys or awards won. write-ups featuring a different sponsor each month. with a full listing every month. How 'bout some more ideas. What would you like to see in your newsletter? Maybe each months tech tip could be written by a different member. How about a monthly joke? or auto related trivia? (g-rated please) Send me your ideas and any articles you would like to submit.
I'm afraid i wont be able to attend this months board meeting, club house has more steps than I can handle just yet, so send your thoughts, suggestions, submissions etc. to my email. obxladydi@gmail.com Thanks!!
