Bugless Splat Rally

Attending: Larry Garner, Denny Smith, the Nicholls, the Haffs, the Wilmoths and the Bogardi.

For only the sec­ond time in its 13 year his­tory no one went home with the Biggest Bug tro­phy. I skipped 2002 for some rea­son and this year, no one hit a bug, let alone a big one. In an effort to make sure they didn’t take home the tro­phy, one mem­ber wrote the word bug on the green Avery dot on another car and another mem­ber, a past win­ner, said even if he did actu­ally win the tro­phy, his wife would not let him back in the house with it. So, await­ing next year’s run, the tro­phy sits in a place of honor at our house; on top of the water heater in the laun­dry room at the back of the garage.

Future of the club/meetings:
· Everyone was in agreement that the club should continue to meet on the first Thursday of each month for a social gathering. This is not necessarily an official club meeting unless there is something that should be discussed. The person responsible for the Thursday social gathering can host the gathering at their home or at a local restaurant of their choice.
· The members in attendance also agreed that the club should have a breakfast and/or event on the third Saturday of each month.

Ten Years Ago This Month – July 2001

Membership Drive/Cookout

Date: Saturday, July 14, 2001
Time: 11:00 AM
Place: Andy Jones Mazda
Members Attending: So many I lost count.
Guests Attending: 4 or 5.

Brian & Donna picked up the food money from Andy Jones GM Ken Straw. They then went shopping for picnic supplies. Just about the time Brian & Donna returned with a car load of eats, in pulled Kurt and Karen, who had agreed to come a bit early to help set-up.

The four of us made ourselves at home in the back parking lot. We set up the grill near a parts trailer, as that was the only shade for miles (and not much shade at that.) We then used plastic parts bins for tables for the food stuff and soft drinks. We needed just one more table, so we asked Ken and he let us use the one from the employee break room (I wonder what they ate lunch on?)

Soon, a crowd gathered. It was made up of old friends, new faces and some casual acquaintances mixed with the usual gang. Conversations blossomed, hoods were raised, soft drinks drunk and food was consumed.

After the 24 hotdogs, 20 hamburgers, potato salad and various chips were finished off we got down to giving away some door prizes. Andy Jones had donated 2 Mazda hats, 2 oil filters and a Mazda key chain to go along with the Enthusiasts Manual and Gates die-cast Miata model the club bought to give away.

Our current club members must have been on their best behavior, because we got a couple of perspective members, and even had one person to join on the spot.

If you see a 2001 BRG Special Edition around town, be sure to wave, it might be our newest member Sharon Pentecost.
