Your Executive has been busy

No, really.

When we’re not trying to pay bills left over from the past, mend fences with those who were promised this and that, we’re busy planning for the future.  And we’re busy with our own stuff too!  Yup, we like to race as much as we like to help others make this happen.  So what it is exactly we’ve been busy with?  Here’s a partial list:

Paper work:  we have to file new Incorporation papers to reflect the new volunteers who came onboard to keep the club afloat.  This is isn’t as easy as it seems as St. LAC doesn’t Paperwork is hard!have a complete slate of Executive members.  In order to maintain our not-for-profit status, we are required to have a President (among other things) and no one has expressed a willingness to take on this position.

More paperwork:  while the jury is still out on the necessity of filing Income Tax returns, let’s just say it can’t hurt.

Accounting:  I, for one, am impressed by the efforts to keep good financial records by all of the club’s Treasurers to date.  With that in mind, we purged the books that we are no longer required to keep; namely, 2009 and 2010.  Not-for-profits need only have Journals dating back six years and that is exactly what we have now.

House-keeping:  we have been doing our best to consolidate the club’s assets by moving things kept with various past and present members and places into the club’s trailer.  So what’s in it now?  Cones and more cones.  Timing equipment that requires some attention (and will get it), a sound system that may or may not work, frs radios, safety equipment and other odds and sods used to put on events.  A complete inventory will be made available later in the year along with a 2017 financial report.

Keeping in-touch:  honestly you won’t see a lot on this website or Facebook as we are asked to do so very little.  Lucky us, huh?  Nope.  In fact, we have been busy having talks with Brack Driving Dynamics to help us put on driver events for Kingston’s BMW dealership and Subaru as well.  Why them?  They’re the ones that have responded to our calls.  What’s in it for us?  There’s bound to be a few who feel the racing bug and join St LAC as a result.  And we’d love to hear from you if have any special requests for activities or events.  We always answer our emails:  st.lac.club@gmail.com

Gettin’ ’em while they’re young:  your Vice President Peter has been hard at work with a Limestone School Board official in hopes of creating a 24 Hour of Lemons event or the like down the road.  Who said it’s too late to go back to school?!  Stay tuned.

Etiam:  Oh that a man’s reach should exceed his grasp or what’s a club for?  Well, we meet.  We respond to requests.  The reality is, however, we’re a club of convenience.  Wanna race?  Great, watch ’em join.  Looking for an introduction to racing?  There are events for that and we steer people in the right direction.  😉  Is the phone ringing off the hook?  Nope.  We may be the loneliest car club execs in the Province.  Most of our members are from out of town and they don’t seem to be in any hurry to call Kingston Mecca.  Well forget the events, maybe they just  want social stuff.  Ahh, there’s the rub.  We’re racers too and a bit busy.  Too busy?  Never.  Watch this site for more information.
