Larry's comments from the Feb 02 meeting

Meeting of 2/2/02 went well-- 16 showed.. Couldn't show the video of last years events- restaurant tv was not set up for it after all. Looks like were gearing up for good size group to attend Norwalk this year- 1st week end of May. Ron T. brought a nice sample of a club hat-- he's having 25 made up. We could not set up this years events- the schedules are not out yet. Doesn't look like to many are planning on attending the Nationals this year--again, the focus seems to be Norwalk. Its a lot closer and its a three day event this year - plus the track is nicer..Ron T. brought a sample club business card also-Nice! He's having more made up. Though not confirmed , it appears we will have two cars showing 3/15 at the cavalcade indoor show- Hamburg NY. We agreed to have the next meeting in Batavia-- the restaurant we used to go to is out of business. I arranged to try a place in Darien Center- 1658 Broadway(rt 20).Its called the Timberwolf. Guy was accommodating on the phone. Sat- 3/02/02 at 6pm. $10 per head - wether you eat or not. This schedule will be set up, Norwalk will be set up - who's going with who and where do we meet etc.We will have a tv available to show last years race day at Leichester- its pretty cool. We will have a raffle- Bus C. is bringing in some of his BEST parts to give away- Hey, I'll take that! We will discuss the July 13th family outing- Hey, Pirates day is that same day at O'lcott- should be lots for all to do and see. We hope the members in the "Rochester area" will attend this meeting- we're moving the meeting out your way simply for that reason. We will schedule events up your way this- please get the word out- we NEED you there. Finally- The Restaurant Owner would like an approx. head count and what you will order so he's prepared!! We have three choices- Hot Roast beef sandwich, chicken breast sandwich or a fish sandwich..Please e-mail me or call me (947-9218) and let me know.. In the past, its been a problem getting you guys to contact me on that- please take a moment to let me know- for got-- Im forwarding a memo just received from Roberta Vasilow - it contains the application for entering the Norwalk event-- sign up early and call on a hotel early. Im camping out at the track with my trailer-- anyone wants to join me - let me know.. Have a great day- Larry

Had a very nice time last night at the track! We had 7-8 cars there. I picked up some goodies on the way- burgers, pop- chips and a roasted chicken. As the old saying goes- don't go shopping when your hungry! Well i got to the track and wanted to talk to every one- but the chicken was getting cold!I wolfed the whole thing down in 10.2 seconds @ 135 bits per second! It was a great night to race. Paul P. almost broke into the 11's with a stock turbo-yikes! Joe R. made it to the high 11's-gotta watch that guy. Jerry T. hit the 11.20's- he's gotta new boost control set up-nice! Kevin T. is happy with his new mass air flow sys- still jugglin the chips- almost hit the 11's. Ed C. and his family out of Rochester was there with yet another one of "T"s- I lost track - How many does he have? He almost had a 13 sec. run- its his dailydriver.-all stock. Don F.joined us- has a new turbo T-had problem with the mass air flow.. Yep- Jerry had a spare in his van! I swear, he has one of everything in that van! Oh- Don also has a T with a big block in it- runs low 6's in the 8th--thats a nice ride! Phil T. had his new ride out- has some serious power- just getten the bugs out.Oh- new car- new trailor- nice set up! And then there was Paul C. out of Olean. Yep- first time racing!! He was siked!He did OK!- Ran high 20's!!! HUH?? Well-he left his GN home and was racing his dailey driver- an 86' Nissan Pick-up?? What dah heck is that? I "immediately" expelled him from our group!Not really- his GN is not ready yet- having an oil pressure problem. He enjoyed the experience of racing though. And finally there was me-- I ate alot, talked alot, cooked food- and ate more and took acouple pictures! It was a good evening-No car and I didn't Break Anything!!
