April 2020 Chapter News

East Central News

Thank you to everyone who supported the Chapter's Annual Cornhole Tournament, especially our second-time sponsor, Vak Pak! Team "Red Beards" took home the corny 1st place trophy designed by our past first lady Emily Drumb. It was windy and a bit chilly but also a blast. Thank you to our President Roy Waldhauer, Waldhauer & Son, for being our last minute chef and Vice President Keith Quint, Gorman Company, for holding down the brackets and keeping all in line. View pictures on Facebook. And, thank you Larry and Emily Drumb, Pool Renovations by Larry, for donating for the yummy food!

Thank you so much to Hayward for bringing their Mobile Training Vehicle to our monthly meeting on March 10! Many members commented how cool it was and we all were appreciative for Hayward also buying dinner! For those who weren’t at our last Chapter meeting, we welcomed Daytona BMX, which is a local 501(c)(3), who is helping to raise funds to rebuild the New Smyrna track. The track is in very poor condition, and has been closed for 10 of the last 12 months. They are starting from scratch to rebuild the track, facilities, and ridership. They are asking trade associations, like FSPA, to donate labor and materials to install three concrete turns on the track. The turns need to be either asphalt or concrete to handle bicycles. The turns are very similar to pools, and concrete would be the preferred method. For more details contact them at Daytonabmx@outlook.com.

If you want to help support our Chapter, why not think about signing up to volunteer on behalf of the East Central Florida Chapter for the World’s Largest Swim Lesson happening on June 18? Let Diane know if you are interested.
