President's Corner

By: Judd Goldfeder

The January Club meeting at the Brockmiller?s house was attended by 20 members and three significant others. Tom and Linda impressed us with their knowledge of Mexican cuisine by serving enchiladas with rice and beans. Michelle Lynn displayed great will power by limiting her enjoyment of the New York cheesecake to visual lust. Viva Brockmillers!

A lengthy discussion was held regarding final approval of the proposed bylaws which will be presented at the February meeting for ratification by the members. If you would like to have a copy to review before that meeting please call me at (800) 477-7166 x105.

In accordance with the bylaws, a Nominating Committee composed of Cy Yedor, Ed Niles, Judd Goldfeder, Jeff Littrell, Tom Brockmiller, and Marshall Leib as an alternate, was appointed to recommended candidates for 9 members of the Board of Directors. The candidates will be announced in the next newsletter and the election will be held at the general membership meeting in March. If you would like to be a candidate for the board please call one of us.

1995 is going to have lots of activity for those who like to drive their cars on the track. Marv Landon, Michael Lederman and Frank Carlone of the competition committee have arranged for our members to participate with the Alfa Romeo Owners Club in five track events this year, plus two driving schools. Marv received over 50 responses to a questionnaire mailed to the membership to determine what is wanted in the way of track events and they plan to schedule events which will respond to what our members want.

Steve Tillack has started the planning wheels in motion to have a concours in Long Beach this summer. We hope to make this a yearly event. If you would like to help with this major event call Steve at (310) 318-8760. Mark Dees is arranging a ride a drive, train ride, and picnic in Moorpark for Memorial Day weekend. This event will include a big screen TV for those who want to catch the Indy race.

Dr. Bill Cryan has generously offered to host the March meeting at his new Racers Private Motor Sports Club in the Arco Tower building in Long Beach. See page 4 for details.

Our Club is fun because the members participate. Come to the next meeting at Beverly Hills Ferrari and plan to come to the March meeting to vote for the first Board of Directors.
