I haven’t been posting much lately because I’ve been intensely involved with my car club, the Z Club of Houston. Yes, they still love me even though I no longer drive a Z Car, but have a lowly Honda Accord instead. They love me so much they even let me hold some dangerously powerful positions on the board of directors.
The Club is throwing its hat into the ring to host the 2006 ZCCA convention. Houston already has a Super Bowl under its belt and will be hosting the MLB All-Stars Series in July. We’re more than ready. So I learned PowerPoint over the weekend and helped put together a 23-slide presentation for some of our Club members to present at this year’s Convention in Long Beach, California.
I hope we win, but even if we don’t, this past couple of weeks of intense brainstorming has taught me all over again what I love about this group of people and how great it is to get out of the house (and out from in front of the monitor). And even if we don’t win the bid, I’ve soldered some new friendships that aren’t likely to go away any time soon. Well worth the price of admission.
We should know something by the end of next week. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
