Old Business Discussion and Treasurer’s report.
Bill called for a discussion of old business. There being none, he then moved to the treasurer’s report. As the treasurer could not attend today’s meeting, Bill gave an abbreviated report that we have approximately $1,500 in the club’s account, similar to last month.
Before going into new business, Bill led a discussion of events occurring in the past month:
Dan Blackwood related his experience, along with his brother Jim Blackwood, at the annual British V8 Club meet in Dayton, Ohio July 11 through 16. More cars were present this year. There were many events including a tour of the Air Force Museum, Bi-plane rides, a picnic, a tour of a local restoration shop (which restored the car winning the inaugural Greenbrier Con Cours event this past spring) and, of course the car show and awards banquet.
Richard Stephenson related his experience at this year’s Pittsburgh Grand Prix held July 11 through 14. The event includes car shows and a vintage car race through Schenley Park. This was also the location of the MGC Registries’ annual convention. Events included a ride up the incline to “The View 412” restaurant, a tour of “Falling Waters”, sightseeing opportunities and an awards banquet Sunday PM.
New Business Discussion:
