Happy New Year!! I pray that 2012 will be a great year for all of us. 


This week we have a very special meeting where we will first be thanking everyone for all of your hard work on behalf of the club and then the installation of new Officers and Board members for this year.  You will not want to miss this history making meeting as we begin our club's 80th year with Galina Schott as our President.


Serving as President of our club has truly been an honor and a privilege, one that I will always remember and treasure.  We have had a great year due largely to each of you and all of your efforts.  I especially would like to thank all of the Officer's for their support, ideas and open and honest advice, they are the reason everything ran so well this year. 


I look forward to seeing each of you Wednesday at San Jose Country Club.






We have a couple of opportunities for a social event at the Daytona 500 this coming February 2012. Email me at [email protected] if either of these offers interests you.


1)     Daytona Select - $315.00 per person. This is an awesome deal!!! Includes seats in the Sprint Tower, i.e. Daytona International Speedway Suites. All food and beverage is included and you will be hobnobbing with movie stars, music stars and the leaders of some of the biggest corporations in the world


2)  Dave and Buster's Daytona 500 Raceway - $175.00 per person. This includes transportation to and from the race, something a lot of members have asked me for on past Daytona trips. Details at the following link -
