We will have a private room which includes a large Televsion!! I will bring a VCR and video camera to run off some event flicks. Attn: Joe D.. There will be no "x" stuff here- but you come anyway!! Folks In Rochester- try to attend-- we are trying to set up a branch group in your area- we will need volunteers to organize that from your area! Phil and Jan- please note- there has been a slight change in the date for the Family outing-- please reserve a shelter for July 14th (Sat).. We will have info on The Norwalk Ohio Event Ron T. Will have info on club hats. We will have info on a race day at Leichester for Sept 2002 Dinner is still $10-- BUT there is a slight change that might affect some of you.. Geo Pittas has advised that they charge per "head count".. So- if you do not order a meal- you will still be charged the $10.. Keep in mind- the meal is $8.60 and $1.40 goes into our club money.. Club dues of $10. are also due. Also- We need a raffle gift for this next meeting- anyone interested in donating- please drop me a note.

See ya Larry

Larry's comments from the Dec 15 meeting

The 12/15/01 meeting went well-- had 16 bodies there.. Again- we had some no shows!! I would under stand if you had just fallen out of an airplane or something-- other wise pick up the phone and call me (947-9218) - leave a message so were not holding up dinner etc waiting for people who just don't show up! Now- are next meeting wil be late Jan 2002, we'll have a TV there to view last years events, We'll have pricing in on Club hats (very nice stuff), a sample club card- with our logo on it ( to pass out at events), we will talk more about Norwalk (this year its a 3 day event- 2 race and one show in May), we decided on trimming down our events so we may be more focused and have more people show up, we will have a scheduled event in Rochester, Canada, -- we'll be more focused on Nostalgia Day at Lancaster ( lots of folks liked that event), The racers in the group liked renting the track at Leichester last Sept-- we wil try and hook up with the Mustang group and rent the track with them. Cost will be less, family is invited and we'll have food set up. Note: our family picnic will be had at Olcott Park the third weekend in July 2002- PENCIL that in. Also- Attention to those in the Rochester area-- make this next meeting!! We will discuss setting up your area as a chapter of ours with the same name.. We'll need one or two guys or gals to head that up.. We're doing that because of the distance..You can them schedule YOUR AREA events and combined events with the people in our area. Thats all for now- I'll be in touch with the date for the next meeting. Have a nice Holiday! Larry
