Club Business:

  • September 15th Tom has planned a drive with the Corvette club to Callaway Plantation, we will meet at Steak & Shake on I-20 and plan to leave at 0845 so we can meet up with the corvette club at the designated time.  Tom needs a head count by Tuesday the 11th because we are getting a special rate to get into the plantation.  So please email or call him right away if you want to go!
  • Next month’s meeting will be at Old McDonald Fish Camp (October 4th).
  • Don’t forget the Steeplechase is October 27th for those that want to attend please see Tom.  Dennis & Karol and Brian & Donna will be there with canopy, we can coordinate at next meeting for food, drinks etc.
  • Tale of the Dragon run on 2-4 November – Gonna be a beautiful time to catch some fall colors too!
  • Our Christmas Party will be on December 15th this year at the same location (thank you Patty!), Brookstone Clubhouse (1250 Brookstone Way, Augusta).  We will be having the same caterer and same meal but this year there will be a $10 charge per person.  This will keep the club funds in good shape, and it’s a pretty good price for an evening of fun and fellowship. We need to collect the money in advance so we can have a check ready for our caterer.
  • 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!

Party. Tom will talk to Patty Wilmoth about getting the clubhouse (where they live) for our Christmas Party again this year (preferably Dec 8th or 15th). We will also need to decide what we want to eat and how best to do that. Start thinking about it, so we can discuss at the next meeting.

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
