Red Lines – Lynnsey’s President’s Message #11

Happy Holidays!

I hope this letter finds you all healthy and in good spirits as this holiday season comes about.

The days are getting shorter, the leaves have fallen, and I hope all your pretty cars are put away for the winter. While these shorter days give us less time outside, they also give us time inside to brush up on reading and research, or even working on winter projects. I know at my house winter brings time in the car shop—a lot of honey-dos get done over this time. Do not forget the resources available to you through the website,, as well as your fellow Absarokians. Many of our members are a wealth of knowledge! They not only know a lot about their own cars, but about many other things, things we often call hobbies, but, as I’ve found out many of them are professional hobbyists. I have recently found our members to be interested in everything from knitting to beer making, painting to genetics, fly tying to cheese making and RC cars, to name a few.

As far as club activities go, our council has decided that following Montana’s guidelines has been too restrictive, first, on the number of people in a group (we are usually more than allowed), and second, the ability to spread out said group in a comfortable space. Going forward, we will not be having any gatherings that cannot abide by Montana’s guidelines. We will still be gathering for breakfast on the second Saturday, as the Laurel Golf Club has a space that allows us to abide, as well as be comfortable in a group and they kindly set aside a dedicated space for us.

My wish for you is that you find comfort in this holiday season. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time.

Until next time,
