Presidentís Message

As you know I will be entering the 66 into Godís Country Car show this year. Thanks to Mike Peterson for offering me the use of his trailer. Also thanks to all of you who loaned me gas cans and a siphon tube. I did get the gas siphoned out of the car. It is actually fairly easy to do, a bit messy though. Iím always a bit leery of doing anything where burning down your house is a possible outcome. We will be going as a group at 3:00 pm to the car show. I will already be there by the time the rest of you arrive. Dinner will be at Three Rivers Lodge around 5:00 pm.

The March meeting has been moved to Dennis and Cyndy Schaperís house. The start time is 3:00pm. BYOB and a dish to pass, brats will be provided.

I have mailed the Brenengen Maintenance agreement to Don for his signature. I should be getting that back along with his contribution to the club sometime next week.

Ride Ní Dines: so far July, September, and October have been signed up for. There was discussion of combining the beater rally with the April Ride N Dine. I think this would be a good idea, if someone would like to sign up for April. Also Dave and Kathy were interested in going to the Corvette Cure Car show in Mason City Iowa as part of their July Ride N Dine.

Hopefully the weather will improve by next weekend.
