President, Greg Phillips, started the meeting by handing out membership rosters. John Moss

handed out two windshield stickers for each membership. There was a discussion about the

Sunday House hotel for the Cruise to Fredricksburg in September. Costa Kaldis stayed there

recently and said it was real nice. Our rate will be $79.99 per night. A motion was made and

carried that we use this hotel. Amotion was made and carried to send $300.00 to Central TX Club

to assist with Lone Star XXX. New member, Gregg Endres, made a big hit with everyone as he

provided some great door prizes. His daughter, Erica, runs in the pro stock NHRA. We have a

special offer of free entry fees for the first 6 cars to enter the June 2 nd Car Show for Oilfield
