President’s Message

Sorry for the delay in getting the president’s message out. Last weekend was a busy one for club events. The big event was the club rally on Sunday June 7th. We had about eight club cars and two cars from other clubs. It was the best and most challenging rally we’ve had so far. We also had June Dairy Days Parade, on June 6th. Two cars from CVCC came for that.

Rather than rehash all of the upcoming events in the president’s message, I’ll refer you to the meeting minutes. All the upcoming events are in them and on the website calendar and on Carol’s mail card. I’ll send out reminders, as usual, prior to meetings and events.

We do have to have one more car show meeting in early July with Don Brenengen at West Salem to finish up preparation for the July 18th car show. I’ll contact Don about that.

Governor’s Report - June 2015

It's finally here!

June, the finest month of the year for driving our fine automobiles. Our time is now. So many events and only 30 days to do it. I hope you can find the time to come to Galesville on June 7. This is where we are setting off on our annual Rally. This years event will be run through the rolling hills of my ancestral home of Trempealeau Cty. This will be a fun and scenic drive. Will it be challenging, yes. Will there be fun curvy roads- yes. If you can't make it, be sure to enjoy June. It is the best Wisconsin weather of the year to go for a ride.

See you on the asphalt.

RCC Governor
