Volunteer Drivers Needed

Loving Spoonful picks up surplus food from grocers and farmers for delivery to more than 40 local shelters, meal programs, and other social services agencies. We are looking for more volunteer drivers help us with those deliveries, which each take 1-1.5 hours and can be committed to weekly or on an occasional basis. Last year we got almost $300,000 of fresh food to our Kingston neighbours who need it most.
Would St. LAC members have any interest in helping us out as volunteer drivers?
Cheers,

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.

The Summer of Fast! VARAC GP 2017

The Diamond Jubilee Formula Junior World Tour
& Historic Formula One Cars, June 15-18, 2017 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

VARAC Vintage Grand Prix
It was a busy several days for members of St LAC participating in this year’s VARAC GP.  Add to that the incessant wrenching, spins, and a blown motor and it all added up to elevated heart rates and heart aches!  None of us, however, would have missed a moment of it.  After all, it’s not every day a F1 Ferrari driven first by Gilles Villeneuve or Graham Hill drives by you!
Participants:
Rob Metcalfe G70
Danby Crowder F1600
Roger Curtis Street
The author sincerely regrets missing any other member who was there.  Please send me a note with the details to st.lac.club@gmail.com and I will be sure to add you in.

The Driver Dynamic Autoslalom series will serve as the basis for the St LAC 2017 Autoslalom Points Series.

Here are the results:

[Editor’s note:  my wife says I’m being passive agressive.  I think someone else likes to be bossy.  I also believe that my posting results using last name, fictitious car is just fine and no more likely to set Insurance Companies hearts (if there is such a thing) a-flutter than Driver Dynamics advertising their events online and then failing to police the pictures of cars with driver and license plate in plain view is to set alarm bells ringing.]
