June 13, 2013 Meeting
President Larry Berg called the meeting to order at 7:13 p.m.
We had a couple of new (and returning) faces join us tonight. Larry Smith is a new member of the group. He bought Joe DeMuth's TR3. Jerry Peterson is back in the club. He was a member some 15 years ago and has a 1980 Spitfire. Meanwhile, Lynn Halverson is back with his TR6 and he also has a Stag.
Membership chair Joe DeMuth reported that we have around 80 family groups so far this year. That's down from previous years, but still healthy.
Newsletter chair Orrin McGill gave a nod to Terry Mackey, who comes up with the great covers for the newsletter. He also said we can expect lots of neat things in the July issue. However, Orrin also mentioned that he plans to hand over the newsletter duties to someone else for next year. If you're interested in taking the reins, we'll elect a new newsletter chair at the October meeting.
Linda Nelson mentioned that she's still moving forward with plans to put up a board with name tags on it. She'll send an e-mail to the group asking for people's names and a side-profile picture of their cars.
Regarding tech sessions, Pat Holt suggested making the schedule flexible. Typically, tech sessions have been on the third Saturday of the month. However he'd like to move that as needed - possibly even having sessions on Sundays. The group agreed that would be fine.
Pat is also our InterMarque liaison and he reported that the recent Rendezvous was great, and there are plenty of other fun evens on the InterMarque calendar.
Vice President Sue Ethier spoke of the upcoming InterMarque picnic, which the Minnesota Triumphs Club is hosting on June 30. It'll be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Cherokee Park in St. Paul. Sue plans to bring a big container of Arby's roast beef and buns. Everyone else is encouraged to bring a dish to share.
As for upcoming events, Terry Mackey and Dick Leighninger wanted to remind everyone about the winery tour near Delano that's coming up on July 27. There will be room for about 100 cars (and we're not conflicting with the Corvette event this year!).
The Mudhens even was also rescheduled to July 21, while the Spring Tour will still happen sometime this summer, though an exact date has not yet been nailed down.
Mark Stephens said he attended the recent Hangar Dance and reported that it was a great event. He wanted to remind everyone that another dance is scheduled for Sept. 7.
The great annual Etheir picnic is scheduled for Sept. 14. The VTR get-together in California is shaping up to be an impressive event. And pictures of your car at a barbeque restaurant should be sent to Larry Berg for consideration in this year's calendar contest.
Larry adjourned the meeting at 8:01 p.m.
