From the President:
Well, another month down, and another new member… welcome to Don Jared. Seems like we keep growing each month. I am definitely not complaining… I think it is great that the club keeps growing… We had a good time hanging out with the all the street rodders from California… they had some pretty nice cars. Thanks to all that were able to show up and represent our car club for this. It has been a long time since TSCC has hosted a fall car show. I know this is the first one since I became a member. I don’t know what to expect for it, but I am hoping for good weather and a good turnout of people and cars. This will also be the first time (to my knowledge) that we have had a live band. Registration starts at 8 am on August 22, so please show up as early as you can. Anyone helping with setup needs to be there between 6:30 and 7am (4:30 am for those that were notified at the meeting). Just another quick remind that I will be out of town visiting my parents at the time of our next meeting. I will leave the meeting in the capable hands of our vice president. Someone please keep an eye on him… Also don’t forget the eat-out on August 27 at the Casa Mariachi at 225 Prince St. at 6:30 pm. See you there…
