Mike Hauser: Lunchtime automotive event an educational experience

Thanks for your recent story on the Nevada Union Automotive team competition. It was the Roamin’ Angels’ intent by staging a lunchtime event to highlight their accomplishments.

We brought in several race cars and the experts that build and race them, including NU Alumni. Everyone was welcome to climb in, take pictures and in the end celebrate the noise when we lit them up. It was also important to our members that the crowd of kids and staff visiting our displays understood the importance of what they study and teach. Math, art, science even history and English are what we apply to our passions, those vehicles and our hobby.

If we accomplish nothing else as a club, it’s to light a fire of learning in “our” kids no matter what their Interest. Our commitment that day was time as well as almost $6,000 of support so they can live their passion, attend the competition and represent this community.

This fall at our “Cruisin’ the Pines” car show, all the high schools in the county are welcome to compete for several thousand dollars of support for their programs and needs.
