November 2018 President's Message

Message: 

President’s Message  – November 2018

Until such time we produce a Club Newsletter more frequent that Quarterly, a monthly President’s Message will be sent via Email and also posted on our Website.

Our Club had a very successful meeting on October 20 with our special guests and co-hosts, Steve Ross – National MBCA VP and our own Lance Taylor-Warren – Regional Director.  This hosted luncheon’s cost of $610 was offset by MBCA Regional’s subsidy of $350 resulting in a net cost to our Club of $270.

At the meeting our election of officers was held with the following members elected for 2019:

President – Creighton Fong

Vice President – Michael Proctor

Secretary – Bobbie Wiesner

Treasurer – Pamela Janssen

 

Additionally three members have volunteered for our Club’s very important positions:

Bill Brandt – Newsletter

Allen Wren – Historian

Anthony Funaro – Roadmaster

 

With the above positions being filled, the Club still needs volunteers to assume the following areas:

Director of Communications

Webmaster

Membership Chairman

Social Director

MBZ Dealer Liaison

Photographer/Videographer

(Contact me to volunteer or to obtain more information)

 

 

Upcoming Club Dates

 

 

Saturday, Nov 10              -First Annual President’s Drive/Lunch (Please see following map and

                                                detailed route directions – these are normal roads and part of either the Placer

                                                County Wine Road and/or Placer Mandarin Orange Trail).  This information is also

                                                available on our Website.  Again, we meet at Peets Coffee in Granite Bay and conclude

                                                at Kristen’s Biergarten in Rocklin.

 

Wednesday, Nov 14       -Membership Meeting – This meeting will principally be our Planning Meeting

for 2019.  We already got a jumpstart at the October meeting with volunteers

for some driving events, however, we still need to complete our 2019 Schedule

of Driving and other Club Activities/Events including a minimum of two dinner

venues, one for next December’s Holiday Party and another mid-year.  Each

Mercedes Club has a Planning Meeting to put together a calendar that must

be submitted to their Regional Director by year end so that the RD can schedule

and plan a Regional Event and advise other clubs in his region of their events.

If you are interested in something to do or somewhere to go – chances are at

least one other member is also interested and we can possibly make this a Club

function!  Additionally, we will need to fill out the remainder of our volunteer

positions/committees again, more than one person serving together as a

committee can fill the position – and be more fun!  So come to the meeting which will

be held in the conference room at the Mercedes of Rocklin (Von Housen Dealership)

4747 Granite Dr. in Rocklin beginning at 10:30 a.m.

 

                                                -Board of Directors Meeting.  Members of the Board will have a short meeting

                                                after the General Membership Meeting.  The Board will be discussing a revision

                                                to our outdated By-Laws that will have our Club conform with other MBCA Sections

                                                which will be brought to a membership vote no later than March 31, 2019. 

We will also discuss the distribution of our Newsletter – Capitol Star, planning  

additional events for our 50th Anniversary and reviewing our financial position.

 

Saturday, December 1   -Holiday Gala Dinner at Marriot Hotel in Rancho Cordova.  Information on

                                                Website/Newsletter.  Again, there will be a no-host bar and corkage, passed

                                                hors d’oeuvrers and hosted wine on the table with your selected entrée.  If more

                                                information is needed, please contact Bobbie Wiesner (916) 952-9171.
