BUSINESS MEETING, SATURDAY, MAY 8, 2010

PRESENT: Bob Galli, Mike Thomas, Bill Marks, Zac Mathis, Don Hemwall, Ed & Charlotte Roberts, Jim Pennell, Alma Quesnel

The dinner meeting was held at the Pennell home followed by a meeting. Charlotte forgot to bring the minutes and treasurer report from April.

Several members attended the Spring Fling in Sacramento the weekend of April 30-May 2. Attendance was good and good representation in the car show. It was an enjoyable weekend.

Vair Fest 2011 was discussed in Sacramento and there was interest expressed. Request was made for another wine tasting event as at last event. Discussion of potential dates knowing that Wildflower Triathlon is the 1st weekend in May. Consensus to try for 3rd weekend in May depending on availability of the AARP building and the Lake Park. Suggest Bob O check on availability of the facilities. To get better attendance we need to do more advertising and earlier in the year. Suggestions to advertise in Fast Vair, Virtual Vairs, Corvair Center, Hemmings Magazine, and Drive Magazine as well as Communique. Mike also suggests a swap meet by club members at Vair Fest.

Jim P finally got his gold/black license plates and needs to get the car registered with them. The original plates need to be taken to the DMV when registering and it usually take 2-3 months to process.

Next meeting will be at Mike Thomas home. Meeting adjourned at 8:45 PM.

Raffle held earning $13, with $5 going to attendance. David Chess name was drawn, missed $45.
