928 OC members, fans and friends,

I just wanted to share a letter with you that was sent to Stan Shaw from the 928 Owners Club board. He served this club tirelessly for longer than most have even been members and truly saved the club from falling apart! We owe much of what we see and enjoy of the 928 Owners Club today to Stan!

Stan brought me on to help with membership several years ago and I served with pleasure and pride. I am a charter member of the club and the last thing I would want to see is the club die...thankfully Stan saved it from oblivion and allowed me to help in the recent years to make it better and stronger than ever!

Thanks to Stan for encouraging me to run for President and for all his support over this past year! It has been a very busy year and many wonderful things have happened for the club!

For all of his years of service Stan has received a beautiful obelisk as a thank you and is now our newest lifetime 928 Owners Club member!!!

Thanks again Stan!!

Here is the text of the letter from the board!

Stan Shaw
Immediate Past President
928 Owners Club


Dear Stan,

We, the board members of the 928OC and the 928 community, honor your years of service to the 928 Community as President of the 928 Owners Club.

Thank you Stan, for your many years of guidance, direction with the creation and hosting of the OC website, organizing the official process of Club business, forum voting, and presiding over years of challenging times and issues with integrity.

With appreciation from the 928 Owners Club Board and the 928 Community.

Thank you, Stan, for all that you have done for the OC! Thank you for giving me the tools I needed to become a volunteer myself. The entire membership owes a debt of gratitude to you for your steadfast commitment to this organization for so many years.

As a newbie to the OC, I'm assuming that Stan masquerades around Rennlist as Merlin? If that assumption is correct, the I suggest that we bypass the letters of appreciation and accolades, and promptly nominate Stan for sainthood.

His wisdom and experience with these cars coupled with a willingness to always respond with an on-task answer to the silliest of questions makes Stan an absolutely unique breed on any forum that I've ever visited. Without Stan on-call, I suspect that there would be any number of 928's parked on the side of countless roads across our nation.

Thanks, Stan.

I can not take any credit for Merlin's posts, and advice, as I am not he.

As noted above, Mr Merlin is A Stan, but not THIS Stan. Both Stan's have great info to share regarding 928's though! :)
