    PRESIDENTIAL THOUGHTS

    2018...A THING OF THE PASTSo, 2018 is now in the books, a thing

    of the past. It was a great year. It is amazing how active our club is. RMR hosted seven high performance driver education (HPDE) events, a club race, three autocrosses, 17 social events, ten tours including a gimmick rally and a true off-road 4x4 on trails offering a technical element on more than just a graded dirt road.

    Of course, 2018 was the 60th Anniversary of RMR. We had two special events. In June, we held our 60th Anniversary Celebration in Vail. While in Vail, we had a Friday reception, two tours on Saturday, and an evening dinner. We were honored by the attendance of Zone Rep Rich Sanders and PCA National Secretary Cindy Jacasin, who remarked that the weekend was basically a mini-Treffen.

    The celebration continued into July, where RMR hosted a multi-day multi-region tour of western Colorado, the Grand Loop Tour. Twenty-seven cars left Denver on July 26th for a four-day, 1,000-mile tour travelling many of Colorados Scenic Byways.

    Our year was concluded by a fantastic

    60th Anniversary Holiday Party. Our chairs, Jane Hebert, Christine Walters, Arnette Schouten, and Carole Thero outdid themselves this year holding the annual party at Willow Ridge Manor in Morrison. Autoworks Colorado was our sponsor. Thanks, Autoworks!

    Besides all the great food, drink and festivities, the highlight of our 60th
