Recently Ron Kibbe, exiting President of Gold Coast Cruisers, contacted me about their chapter remaining a 'Chapter in Good Standing' with TLCA. while the group was the originating chapter of TLCA many moons ago, times have changed and so has their membership. The question then arose 'What's in it for us' and why should we remain. I wrote them a (long) letter and quantified my thoughts about Clubs, chapters and TLCA involvement. I am very happy to relay that Gold Coast Cruisers has voted to remain a chapter in TLCA and even go further to augment their by laws to require TLCA membership of their members. I want to publicly express my sincere appreciation and over-all glee (Yes, glee as in joyful and happy) in their decision to remain active and support TLCA! I will post the communication here for all to read later (probably after I return from Hawaii, First timer) but I wanted to initiate my thanks and pass along the information to other groups who may be finding themselves in a similiar situation. thanks Gold Coast Cruisers and all our Active TLCA Chapters! Chapters and events are what bring TLCA home to the members!
