Text Box: 	Our phenomenal year of great driving events continued last month with our annual Sierra Foothills Run.  We had a great turnout of cars and beautiful weather.  Others will write up details about the event, so I wonít belabor it here, except to say you better plan on going next year!

	We held the April meeting at Brandon Burkeís home and thank you Brandon for hosting the meeting.  We started planning for the upcoming West Coast Lotus Meet which we are all very excited about. We still need more helpers, so if you are interested, please contact any of the officers or attend this monthís meeting for more information.  Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend the meeting as Iím stuck in Colorado attending to family matters once again, but our other directors and officers will be able to handle any questions.  Kiyoshi is the point man for the WCLM.

	In about one month on June 13, remember we have another Laguna Seca track day!  We will have a record three track days at Laguna this year, so remember to sign up soon, as this track day will surely fill up at this world famous track! 
	
	I met Maximillian Cooper last January and he told me about his event named the Gumball Rally 3000.  It is an event in the spirit of the original Cannonball-type cross-country race.  He has held a few of these in Europe the in the past, and last year he told me he arrived in first place in a Lotus Esprit!  Iíve seen the videos and it is truly crazy.  And this year they started off at the ďLotusĒ club!  Here is their most recent press release for your reading enjoyment.  I donít know if any Loti were involved this year, as the event just ended, but Iíll find out and report later.  I will add that the press release fails to mention all the arrests, impounded cars, and other Ďincidentsí that Iíve learned occurred from participants whom I know personally, but weíll leave that out to protect the innocent/guilty!
