October’s Meeting Minutes

Where: Mi Rancho in Aiken, SC
When: October 4, 2007
Who: Donna & Brian Bogardus, Gail & Miller Butler, Jackie & John Nicholls, Dave & Autumn Schumacher, Stacey & Cindy Timmerman and Patti & Rudy Wilmoth.

Treasurer’s Report: $1,586.49

Old Business:

  1. Past events were reviewed:
    • The breakfast and the Gold Rush Festival in McCormick was a good time according to the small, but select group of attendees.
    • The Warner Robbins Museum of Aviation trip was a rousing success with several cars from our Club, the Peachtree Club and a couple cars from Mid-GA. Apparently the highlight of the event was the rally master’s attire, an International Orange Flight Suit, but alas no one thought to get a picture…
  2. Future events were previewed:
    • The Gold Rush Days/Octoberfest Trip to the GA mountains is set for the 19th-21st. Looks like a good group is going.
    • On the 27th of the month will be our fall Senior Drive for the residents of Elmcroft Assisted Living. Please make arrangements to attend as we usually have a good turnout of residents looking for a ride.
    • The breakfast on the 27th has been changed to a lunch that will follow the Elmcroft drive. We will head over to Sconyers BBQ and “pig” out.
    • November’s meeting will be at Rae’s Coastal Cafe in Augusta.
  3. Last meeting Dave Schumacher volunteered to lead the caravan of Club members down to The Low Country Club’s Miatas Doin’ the Charleston next May. Not long after he mentioned that the event it filled up, leaving Dave as the only MMC participant. I guess that means he should have an easy time keeping track of that caravan.
  4. October’s 50/50 raffle winners were Stacey Timmerman ($10) and Gail Miller (Zoom-Zoom hat, shirt & key chain.)

Old Business:

  1. A volunteer was asked for to head up the Gala 15th Anniversary Party committee scheduled for next Jan/Feb and Dave Schumacher stepped up. Let’s hope that more people follow him on this adventure than to Charleston. 🙂

The meeting was adjourned and we returned to our cars warily eyeing the dark hued Pontiac Solstice that was in the lot amongst the Miatas.
