Dear Members and Section Friends,
I’m excited to welcome you to another thriving year for the Milwaukee section. Our meeting calendar filled quickly and is full for the year to come.
I’m pleased to announce our September kickoff meeting at Erik Buell Racing, and expect a strong attendance. Many thanks to board member Wayne Richter for his efforts to coordinate the meeting. The excitement is followed by our October venue at MGA Research Corp, with the calendar year ending in November with our student night meeting hosted at Marquette University.
We’re trying hard to provide meetings of interest to our section population. A membership survey from the Snapon meeting last year told us that our members would like to see more tours and a variety of technical presentations. We also had comments suggesting lower meal prices. I appreciate your comments and encourage you to continue to shape the section better for all of us. I hope you will recognize the changes in our meetings to reflect your suggestions.
We enjoyed a great turnout of members and friends at the June Sprints event at Road America. The Saturday sunshine was more accommodating than Sunday’s rain, but we enjoyed the event nonetheless, thanks to Doug Kautzer for organizing the weekend and hosting the hospitality tent.
Beginning this year, Frank Poradek will assume the role of section treasurer. He is replacing Bernard Krauska after his long tenure of service to the board. Many thanks to both of them for their contributions.
We continue to grow our board member participation, and invite you to contact our Company Rep chair, Tony Grant, if you would like to become more involved.
Chairman – Milwaukee Section
