    Hey everyone,
    After a VERY LONG TIME of being on "hiatus" (and for fear of people thinking I'm totally MIA)... I'd just like to say a very warm HELLO to So Cal Fchatters... For old friends, I still have the 456 (and she's now up and running strong)...and for those I haven't met yet, I hope we cross paths soon!

    In any case, I would love to get re-acquianted with everyone soon... there are lots to catch up on and many miles to drive!!

    Cheers,
    Byron

    So good to hear from you. Your name came up in conversation on Sunday. I just figured you we're still in the honeymoon stage of your marriage and you'll be back when you are ready. Glad to have you back.

    Thanks for the warm welcome back, guys...

    A - I think the honeymoon stage lasts forever, right?

    In any case, I am absolutely thrilled to be back! Thanks to Alan @ FOC, my car is in fine working order. We've had some changes with FDC, but nothing that will keep us from "driving and driving often." JL has moved to another region (AZ), but doing well. With our fine weather coming around the corner, I'm thinking... 'tis the season to be back on the roads! Now, if only we can pick the right type of event to kickstart things...

    Here are my ideas:
    - St. Regis Breakfast / Drive
    - Santa Barbara Run
    - Angeles Crest Run
    - Others?

    Truthfully, it's tough to get back into gear again, but I think with the level of enthusiasm of the local F-car crowd, we will gain some serious momentum again and have some killer drives!!

    Hey are you a father yet? Congrats by the way I found out the good news from Arick while racing with TCRA. He still runs their registration. Give my best to M.. She is a fine catch.

    Hey Byron, nice to hear from you again! I was just at the shopping center by you the other day and thought about you. I've been kind of MIA myself since Im graduating and moving to Texas with my fiance. Congratulations on your marriage! Maybe I'll run into you before I move!

    Byron & Jean Louis ran the FDC. They always had 1st class events with great turnouts and great drives.

    Thanks Tim, Jon, all, for the warm welcome and kind words.

    There seems to be a few great events going on this month, like Jon's SB run, the Veloce event, and many others. I will shoot for June to kick things off again for a fun run, then go from there! Jean-Louis, sadly, has moved out of the state (AZ), but is active with the F-car group there. I will, for the time being, try to get the ball rolling again and hopefully, we can have some great events!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone again.
