Hi All:

Just wanted to say that i had a great time meeting Michael, Lex, Pete and Thom yesterday in Hampton Bays. It was a nice day for a long drive up there from Queens NY.

Its good to know there is so much passion in the OC. Im glad i met up with them. I was able to pin point a couple of small issues with their help, and also sort out a couple other. That on its own gives me great incentive to make it to Frenzy 16 in DC this year.

I have owned a 928 for over 11 years now and by far and I mean way out there was this summer when I drove the GTS to Denver then Wichita for OCIC........60 928s, their owners and spouses, 10 days, 6000kms........NIRVANA !!!

So glad you had a similar experience Emmanuelli........its a rush to share in the excitement of who did what, where and why with their 928s.

Emmanuelli,

I am so happy to see you have integrated with the NY Region so quickly! Michael has been kicking butt up there and I am proud of all his hard work and effort! He works hard for you and the rest of the OC members up there so spread the word that good things are happening in the 928 world in NY!

Go to Frenzy if you can! It is an awesome event and it is THE EVENT that started them ALL! Ed Ruiz started that event actually as a PCA sponsored event back in '97 (IIRC) and I don't think a year has been missed since! I went in '98 and had a blast!

Malcolm, just keep rubbing it in man!!! :D LOL! I was at home looking at an empty bank account and an R/V and a few 928's that were all ready to go... So sad I missed OCIC this year. With a little luck I might just make Sharktoberfest in a few weeks though! My fingers are crossed that this quarter bonus will FINALLY be more what is expected! Sales have been good, so it should be a nice one for a change!

I know and I am going to freaking miss that one! DOH! NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT either! I thought I was going to be able to skip church on Sunday and at least hang with you guys then, but was informed by my wife that I am the SOLE guitar player for the band that Sunday! UGH! The rest of the weekend is all University Homecoming stuff for my 25th...

You guys have fun for me. I am hoping that Jim Willman who will be the next membership chair will be able to make it out there to kind of be the 928OC contact person... Of course Roger as a Trustee will be there for that too, but I think most folks look at him more as "host" than OC guy at that event! :D Can't blame them for that, he and Chuck and Jim do a great job with that event!

I am not sure that it is an OC event...I thought that a few times in the past 928OC sponsorship was requested and granted, but I could be wrong. My point was if there are a bunch of 928's around it is nice to have a person who can represent the OC there too. In the past Jim Willman has taken the OC banner to display.

Yea, Malcolm it is a freakin' 45 min drive for me and I won't be able to get out there and you are FLYING 11 hours! You make me feel very bad about it...thanks! ;) I saw some chat on RL about picking another weekend...I am all for that as virtually any weekend (save the F1 race weekend) just before or just after this Nov weekend works for me.

I would gladly represent OC but Roger shall be there as part of the new board.

Its an 11hr plane ride to DFW then a 4 hr return car trip but after OCIC it doesnt seems to bad (6000km trip)

I saw the chaos re. another date but its impossible to please all of the people all of the time........perhaps the US should move thxgiving to align with the rest of the world? :)

Malcolm, your OCIC trip was EPIC!!! Yes, Roger will be there, but he is more host of the event, so it would be nice to have others there as 928OC Representative for the event! You are the Regional Rep for your area correct? I think that is a good 928OC position to represent the club. Of course if Jim Willman makes it to the event he would be the obvious choice as the new Membership Chair...

Yes, there is no way to please everyone on an event date...just gotta pick the best date for the most folks and hope for the best! That is always the case though isn't it?!
