Thanks to Dennis for making arrangements for tonight’s meeting! Mi Rancho is always nice for a before ‘Cinco de Mayo’ celebration. We had a very good server (Ben), and Dennis brought cake for Karol’s birthday.

Club Business:
• Welcome to new members Gary Lynn and Jeff Kelly! They joined us for the Road Rally, as
well as the Dinner meeting at Mi Rancho. Glad you came to both. 😉
• Even though there wasn’t enough interest for the drive to Asheville, thanks to Don Boltz for
planning it in April. Hopefully, we’ll get a little more interest later in the year.
• Thanks to David and Ellie Brock for the planning and executing the “I Feel Good!” Road Rally
on April 21st. Dennis and Karol remembered dead end roads don’t count, and this year won the event by a nose. Even though Jeff and Gary had less mileage, they missed a picture, and Brian and Donna, and Hal and Trudy had just a bit more mileage but we were all pretty close on mileage. Don and Kay, we missed you at the Snowcap.
• On that same note, since David and Ellie had come out of pocket for the nicely etched
stemless wineglasses as a prize for the winners, Dennis made a motion to have the club reimburse them. It was seconded, and all present in favor, so our Treasurer wrote a check to them.
• If you haven’t paid your dues for the year, please see Mike Dyer or any officer at your next
meeting to get caught up. Thank you for your support!
• Last, Please remember to RSVP to our events – it makes it difficult for the planner if we don’t
know how many will show – especially for smaller venues. Your RSVP is greatly appreciated, so please don’t forget.

“I Feel Good” Rally Wrap Up

Members Attending: Donna & Brian Bogardus, Don & Kay Boltz, David & Ellie Brock, Gary Ly & Jeff Kelly, Dennis & Karol Mason and Trudy & Hal Scott.

This was the second road rally/photo scavenger hunt for the club that Ellie & David Brock have put on (thanks!!!). This year’s was entitled the “I Feel Good” Rally because instead of last year’s rural roads, we were treated to a more urban route around the Godfather of Soul’s adopted home town of Augusta, Georgia and three of the nine photos needed were James Brown related.

The Masons took home the engraved glassware for their narrow first place finish. The second, third and fourth place teams took home no prizes, but did take home full bellies of North Augusta’s Sno Cap Drive In food. The fifth team was a DNF, I won’t tell you who they were, but somewhere along the course they bolted for home.

Be sure and check out the winning team’s navigation of Instruction #27 “Enter traffic circle and take 8th R” on the event Facebook page.

And if you are interested, you can read my 800 word blog post about Donna and my Rally Adventure over on the Life of Brian. Below are our 9 photos.
