It was brought to my attention by a very good friend and fellow club member who shall remain nameless that perhaps there are feelings amongst my friends from the club and members that perhaps they have done something or are repsonsible for my obvious absences. Folks this is not the case at all, no one, not one single person has ever done or said anything that made me want to stay away.
I've been very self absorbed for quite some time, some of you know why or have a very good idea as to why. No good for me or healthy, not easy to say this out in the open, but maybe this is what I need. I miss not being involved, I miss all of you as well.
There was a time I lived for this club and it was my escape from insanity to another more insane(but so much fun) world of the members and our cars.I loved busting my A$$ on anyones car anytime, yup as I got older I injured myself a lot times, but all of you changed that and made me sit on my A$$ and used my head for what it was worth. I appreciated that more than any of you can possibly know.
I want to be more active again, I'm asking for your help in getting me going again, I need this outlet badly. I will work to pick up the task of our weekly meetings once again and I thank Andrew for being there for the club and Ed and Paul M in my absence.
I just made arrangements with Hooters at Young and Eglington for some of our meets. They have an upstairs smoking section and quite legal with the bylaw people. I know we have many smokers yet in this club. The manager is someone I know from the Brampton location, he said he would reimburse parking for club members. It is $4.00 from 6pm to 7am underground right across from Hooters. He said keep your receipts bring them to the next meet there and he will take that money off each persons bill. Nice location, somewhere different, somewhat central, not east end or west end. We can if we want reserve the entire upstairs for us but I can't see that being necessary.
