Friday, Oct 18 @ 6PM Charlie & Cindra Justice hosted our monthly Pistons and Pints “Broctoberfest” at the offices of Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee & Dietzler at 500 Tracy Way, Charleston, WV. Seasonal food consisting of Bratwurst and many great side dishes were provided. Entertainment was provided by Rob McNurlin & the Beatnick Cowboys. We had a large crowd, great seasonal weather, and, most importantly, great fellowship.
Saturday, Oct 19 the WVBCC hosted its first annual car show/cruise-in, organized by Mark Mason, held from noon to 4PM at the parking lot of the Beni Kedem Shrine in Charleston. There was a 50/50 drawing, door prizes, (6) individual awards, food truck for hotdogs, etc. Several members helped out: David Neil, Connie Mason, Charlie & Cindra Justice, Nathan Arnett, and others to make this a success. 31 cars were registered. Plans are already underway to hold this event again next year (perhaps a weekend earlier to avoid Bridgeday).
Saturday, November 16th will be our November Pistons & Pints which will consist of a drive to Morgantown to view the world class car collection of Wayne Long, owner of Mid-Atlantic Sports Cars. Wayne is a new member of our club. He also organized the initial Greenbrier Con Cours Car Show. We will have a barbeque luncheon catered by a local establishment. We will leave from a yet to be determined location for Morgantown at 8AM in order to get there in plenty of time for lunch, view the car collection, and maybe visit a restoration shop in Bellington. It was decided that the attending members would each pay for their lunches.
The Regalia Committee has met and led a discussion about various club branded items it has been considering to have made up for either giveaway or sale to new members, and members in general. A sample hat and key fob was passed around sporting a new Logo for the club. An idea was to get gift bags (Moss Motors for example) to hand these out with various items inside. Another idea was to have sign-up sheets for various items so that you would get the items you wanted. Name tags were also discussed. The committee is to meet again and refine its ideas for presentation to the general membership.
President Michael adjourned the meeting at approximately 10:20AM for some tire-kicking and kibitzing.
Wm Hall, Secretary
