…a word from our President!

Hi Gang:

Well summer is slipping away, and the

mystery tour is coming up. I hope all of

you will enjoy it. Please bring coats and

swim suits and if you have chains I

would bring them to. There will be lots

of food and drinks. Should not eat for at

least two days before we leave. And I

know most of you are getting older so

you should be prepared and get a lot of

sleep before the trip.

The first day will be a long drive. But we

have at least six potty stops. I hope that

will be enough? If not just let me know.

If you have snow boots bring them

because of the altitude it will get very

cold. If there any questions please don't

call. You have already paid your trip fee

and there are no refunds!!!!

Your president,

Andy

Mystery Trip coming up! – Which way do we go?


VP of Public Relations, Charlotte Renna,

welcomed the following guests, Jim &

Peggy Bandy sponsored by the Dukes and

Bob & Gina Estrada sponsored by Diane

Tjerrild. Birthdays added up to 369 years

and 3 couples added up to 116 years of

wedded bliss.

General Meeting Minutes

August 15, 2017

The General Meeting was called to order by

President Andy Anderson at 6:35pm.

Minutes from the July meeting were read.

There being no corrections, Ruthie Danielsen

made a motion to accept the minutes as

read. Leigh Ann Severance seconded.

Dick Johnson gave the Treasurer’s report.

Our account continues to be in great shape.

With the monies coming in for the Mystery

Run and our fall / winter activities, Dick will

be kept busy balancing it all. The raffle keeps

amazing us. Tonight it brought in $413.00.

Charlotte Renna was the lucky winner of the

new CB and installation by Red Monkey,

donated by the Dukes. Who will win the 2nd

CB? Find out in September. Lynn Henenfent

started her vacation early by winning one of

the $50 bills. Can you say Casino!

VP of Activities, Dick Danielsen, announced

several upcoming runs and events. Check

out our newsletter with dates, time and

meeting place information. If you still have

questions, give Dick a call at home or shoot

him an e-mail.

For the second month in a row, Chuck

Laningham could not find one badge

violator. Way to go Club. Debbie Garrison

was not present for the Sunshine Report

so Charlotte stepped up and did a round

robin of club members. We found out

Dave Dawson fell and broke his hip and

Lori Garcia has been diagnosed with

Leukemia and is headed to Stanford.

Please keep both in your prayers. Happy

Cruising to a gaggle of our members, as

they head to Alaska. Charlie and Kim ask

you to please keep the rooms clean as

they sail to Alaska with their family

members on the same ship the day the

gaggle returns.

Old Business: None

New Business: None

The next Board meeting will be Tuesday,

August 22 at Charlotte Renna’s home. The

next General meeting will be Tuesday,

‘In the Garage’ by Dale Comer

2018 Corvette ZR1 Spied

Sounding Like it has a Supercharger

The next great American sports car has been spied making some serious

noise. Spy photographers have caught the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

testing a few times, and at one point, the prototype had to have its exhausts

modified because it was too loud for the Nurburgring.

There have been plenty of rumors about what will power the Corvette

ZR1, but it doesn’t seem like it will be a twin-turbo V8. Instead, Chevy is

likely using a more powerful and supercharged version of the 6.2-liter

LT4 V8 engine that is also used in the Corvette Z06, Cadillac CTS-V, and

Camaro ZL1. You’ll also want to make sure you have your speakers turned

up – the Corvette ZR1 sounds and looks like it’s ready to take a

Nurburgring record or two.
