    In anticipation of the board getting together in the next few weeks I wanted to start a discussion of club activities for the year. To state the obvious, we want to expand participation and cater events to the membership's desires. Please give me some feedback. Feel free to post here or pm me if you're shy. :D I will bring up every idea mentioned. Volunteering to help organize the event gives you bonus points!

    I will get things started:

    1. Dyno day.

    Thanks Mike!

    Maybe a backroads cruise through the national forest/ Montgomery area after a Cars and Coffee event?

    -Maybe we could get Bernie to put on another morning meet @ Tomball with a car on the lift. Go over proper maintenance and trouble spots for us owners or something. I know I never tire of looking at/learning about our cars. I know I would like to learn how to corner weight my car for one. Then do a cruise (and terrorize biker's:)) like Andy suggested.

    I would like add if there are any gun owners in the group, I have access to private indoor shooting range time. I could easily arrange a private range session if the group wanted to go. I also have quite a few firearms if anyone wanted to try out something new.

    Its a stand in place range. They were building a tactical airsoft range the last time I was there. I would have to check if its operational yet.

    Thanks for the reply. I will admit that airsoft and tactical used in the same sentence always makes me laugh though. But hey, fat kids need to feel cool too.

    I was skeptical at first also. I can see the training benefit of it, but more than anything I see the hilarity of lighting said fat kids up......

    With VOI located in Charlotte now, I'd like to help organize a group drive there. One idea I have already is to possibly have the Houston club(and maybe the South/Central club as well) to meet in New Orleans with other owners and drive the coastline to maybe Jacksonville, FL(possible rendezvous with the FL chapters). Then it's a straight shot from there up to Charlotte.

    IF I-10 isnt the most desired route, a good option would be to drive Hwy 90 out of NOLA. This Hwy follows the coastline up to the MS/AL state line. And its a wonderful drive!

    If any of this sounds like a good option for your chapter, I'd love to get involved in any planning for this.

    Cheers!:)
