2013 September Meeting

September 12, 2013 Meeting Minutes

President Larry Berg called the meeting to order at 7:26 p.m.

Several new faces joined us for today's meeting, including Rick Morris, who has a 1976 TR6, Rich Meggitt who is performing a frame-off restoration of a 1974 TR6, and Dennis Kendrick from Scandia who is nearly finished restoring a 1967 Spitfire.
2013 September Meeting
Phil Ethier showed everyone pictures of the vintage sports car festival at Road America in Elkhart, Wis. He was invited to bring the Stag and he and Sue had a wonderful weekend.

Treasurer Rick Hansen said the club's finances remain steady, which is good. He said we'll probably end up about $1,000 ahead for the year.

Membership chairman Joe DeMuth said the roster remains about the same. He pointed out that any new member who joins starting in September will be a paid member through 2014.

2013 September Meeting Newsletter editor Orrin McGill said the newsletter process is going well. He said he would not be able to continue editing the newsletter next year.

Event coordinators Terry Mackey and Dick Leighninger reported that Wheels & Wings and the Hangar Dance last weekend went well. They are looking forward to the picnic at Phil & Sue's house on Sept. 14.

2013 September Meeting Other events include the Waumandee Hillclimb in Alma, Wis., on Sept. 20-22 and the color tour on Oct. 12 (that will start at Point Douglas Park at 10 a.m.). Then the High Tea is coming up on Oct 20th at Carole Isakson's house.

For Tech Sessions, Pat Holt reminded everyone that Saturday's picnic is also a tech session on preparing our cars for long trips (especially for those making the trek out to California for the VTR gathering). He said information about an upcoming session in October is coming soon.

VTR liaison Larry Sanderson reminded everyone of the upcoming VTR convention in California. He also mentioned that next year's convention is slated for North Carolina.
