President’s Message

Commander’s Call

Well, we have another year quickly coming to an end. What happened to this year? First off, let me start out by thanking Gary Fesperman for his service to the Blue Ridge Chapter for the last two years. I’m taking over a chapter that is both very healthy and very active. At the recent annual meeting I spoke about each of our members taking it upon themselves to contact other members to promote the events they are attending. If you are planning on attending another chapter’s event and would like some company, just let the webmaster know and we will put out an email blast to the chapter. Let’s all help to make each event well attended.

Speaking of events, for 2015 the Blue Ridge Chapter sponsored eight fantastic and exciting events. We have two events left for this year, the Hilton Head Motoring Concours d’Elegance and our Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. For 2016 we are again looking at eight BRC-sponsored events, with the possibility of adding an additional show or a fall leaf cruise. Check our website for a complete listing. A number of members will be attending events in Fort Meyers, FL, in January and Tavares, FL, in March. If you need information on these two events, please contact me for the details. Now is the time to mark these events on your 2016 calendar.

If you are working on a project boat, why not take a couple of pictures and send a short article to Bonne Olsen to include in the next Range Marker? I’m sure we would all like to see what our members are working on.

Your President,

John Heiderich
