2007 Bug Splat Wrap Up & Snaps

A nice representation of Club members dined at Zaxby’s before heading out for a drive around the lake: Bill & Bonnie Baugh, Brian & Donna Bogardus, John Bowles, John & Jackie Nicholls, David & Autumn Schumacher, Denny Smith, Rudy & Patti Wilmoth and Dave & Bobbie Winkler. Lonnie Best joined us for the meal with his new to him 2003 Shinsen Edition Miata. He had come out to the Peach Parade in June with intentions to join us more often, but an inattentive driver made a left turn in front of him totaling his Miata.

  • Dave & Autumn took home a Zoom-Zoom Enthusiast’s Picnic Basket along with the Biggest Bug trophy.
  • John & Jackie were awarded a neat Zoom-Zoom bag loaded with cleaning supply samples for having the Most Bugs.
  • Rudy & Patti snagged the Enthusiast’s Cafe Tote for Two because they had the Fewest Bugs.
  • And Bill & Bonnie took home a Zoom-Zoom Folding Stadium Blanket for geting a bug splat closet to their Anticipated Green Dot Target.

Sno-Cap Drive-In Annversary

Sno-Cap Drive-In

We had a nice turn out, 7 cars and 10 people, for a last minute announcement, but then again who can resist a long dog with chili and slaw washed down with a root beer float in a frosty mug…apparently not Dave Winkler, Rudy Wilmoth, John & Jackie Nicholls, Dave & Autumn Schumacher, Brian Bogardus, Bill Baugh nor Stacey & Cindy Timmerman.

Join us at Ruth’s Family Restaurant for breakfast. It’s on Washington Rd. west of I-20 almost to the Bobby Jones, on the right side of the road. The sign is kinda small and the parking lot is gravel, mostly. But the food is great. We’ll be in the small room all the way at the right end of the main dining room. Hope to see everyone then. We have returned from our summer travels at last.
