From the  President:    It  was  good  to  be  back  this  month  after  missing  last  months  meeting.    We  had  a  lot  of  business   to  take  care  of  at  the  October  meeting  and  I  want  to  thank  everyone  for  being  patient  as  we  got  through  it  all.   I  am  going  to  take  this  space  this  month  to  highlight  a  few  non-­‐club  events  that  we  talked  about.    First  off  is  the  Big  Cruisefest   that  is  being  held  on  October  23  –  24.    Little  Rock  Convention  and  Visitors  Bureau  and  Arkansas  Pontiac  Association  sponsor  this   event.    This  is  a  great  event  and  usually  has  somewhere  around  500  cars  present.    Several  of  will  be  meeting  Saturday,  October   24  at  7:00  am  at  Stroud’s  Diner  in  Mayflower  for  breakfast  and  then  cruising  to  LR  for  this.   th

Next up  is  the  event  that  is  taking  place  on  the  Acxiom  Conway  campus.    This  is  celebrating  Acxiom’s  40  year  in  business.    This   will  take  place  on  October  29  from  3  –  5  pm.    They  are  letting  us  setup  a  display  of  cars  for  the  associates  to  view  and  there  will   also  be  other  games  and  such  going  on.    I  already  have  a  list  of  members  that  are  willing  to  bring  their  cars,  and  if  I  don’t  have   your  name  and  you  would  be  interested,  just  let  me  know.   Lastly,  the  Christian  Car  Club  of  Conway  has  been  invited  by  Chik-­‐Fil-­‐A  to  put  on  a  display  of  cars  on  October  30  at  5:30  for  a   trunk  or  treat  event.    This  is  the  main  fundraising  event  for  this  club.    If  you  are  interested  in  this,  please  contact  Michael  Biggs  or   myself.   This  year  is  almost  over  and  we  have  elected  our  officers  for  next  year  so  we  will  be  looking  forward  to  another  year  of  fun  in  the   coming  months.   Don
