Bowling Canceled

The original Rally Master is going to be out of town, so a call went out for a substitute. There were rumblings that someone was going to take the reins, but nothing or no one ever materialized. So you will have to “Beat the Heat” in your own little way. Next up is the August Meeting next Thursday the 2nd.

July Meeting Minutes

Attendees: Donna & Brian Bogardus, Gail & Miller Butler, Jackie & John Nicholls, Dave Schumaker, Denny Smith, Patti & Rudy Wilmoth, and Dave & Bobbie Winkler

Treasurer’s Report: $1,283.49

Business:

  1. Past events were reviewed:
    • The Pool Party was splasherific.
    • The Trenton Parade was peachy.
  2. Dave Schumacher regrets that he can no longer offer the “Beat the Heat” bowling event on July 28th as he will be out of town. If someone wants to step up and shepherd this event Dave would be happy to give you what he has worked out already.
  3. Another causality is this month’s breakfast, but the Nicholls have taken over this event. For details, see HERE.
  4. John Nicholls has produced some flyers for advertising the Club that we can use to put under windshield wipers of Miatas we stumble on in our daily lives. He was soliciting changes and or improvements at this meeting. A couple of suggestions were made and he is going to have them available for distribution at the next meeting and thereafter.
  5. Brian unveiled the “New & Improved” 50/50 raffle at tonight’s meeting. Instead of the usual one winner getting half the money collected, he has added a second winner to the mix. At each meeting he will bring an item from our recently received Mazda Goodie Box to offer as an additional prize. Because all goodies are not created equal, the first ticket pulled will have the option of taking the 50% or the prize. The second ticket pulled will get the leftover. July’s winners were Rudy & Patti ($10) and Gail & Miller (Zoom-Zoom black & gray baseball jersey.)
  6. If you are planning on going on the Gold Rush Days Trip in October you better get that cabin rental reserved now.

June Meeting Minutes

Attendees: Donna & Brian Bogardus, Gail & Miller Butler, John & Carl Haff, Ron & Chris Kaufman, Jackie & John Nicholls, Patti & Rudy Wilmoth, Dave & Autumn Schumaker and Dave Winkler

Treasurer’s Report: $1,367.49

Business:

  1. Elections were held and by acclimation (and the relief of the non-nominees) the following were elected to be your slate of officers for 2007-08:
    • President – John Nicholls
    • Vice President – Rudy Wilmoth
    • Secretary – Donna Bogardus
    • Treasurer – Brian Bogardus
  2. It would be really be nice if we had a Rally Master and another post on the nice to have list would be a Membership Chairperson. If you would like one of these jobs speak up.
  3. This month’s breakfast is at Carl’s BBQ in North Augusta. Followed by:
  4. A caravan to Trenton for the Peach Parade.
  5. Rudy mentioned maybe having a tech day in July. Details may be forthcoming.
  6. July’s Meeting was moved from the 5th to the 12th because of the Independence Day holiday.

Respectfully submitted:
Donna Bogardus
Incoming Secretary
