More vendors are still being sought. Advance registration is about the same as last year. Goody bag sponsors are still needed as well as volunteers to collect items for the bags. So far, Oil Can Henry’s & Napa are the major sponsors with one more still needed. Johnny’s Automotive will provide the dash plaques. Flyers about the show are available for distribution from Prez Steve & available at his office on West 4th. A limited number of color posters have been printed for display in windows of local businesses or other beneficial locations. The City of The Dalles will provide the pre-Friday night cruise labor necessary at no charge. As many members as possible will be necessary to stand watch at various intersections & locations to be sure only registered cars, or those who pay a $5.00 fee, are in the closed cruise which runs from 7-9 PM. MCCC members, who want to display their cars during the CTG show at no charge, must register by July 16. If not pre-registered, there will be a $5.00 fee to display Club cars in the “Club Circle”. The regular entry fee is necessary if a Club member wants to have their vehicle judged in the CTG show. A motion was made to reimburse Nancy Stroh, in the amount of $100.00, for materials used in the making of a quilt that will be raffled during the CTG show. The motion was seconded & approved. A big thank you, Nancy! The sale of 2013 tee shirts & sweatshirts began tonight with more thanks, to the Kiser’s (sales masters) & the Coles, for their trip to Joseph to collect them from the shop there. OLD BUSINESS: Nothing noted. NEW BUSINESS: John Kiser raised the question whether the Club would like to order caps with logos, to sell. A motion was made, seconded & approved to spend approximately $500.00 on the acquisition of hats for that purpose. John would like to have 3 or 4 Club members help decide on a design for the caps. DRAWING: The names drawn tonight for $20.00 were Joe Sellers, Bill Harrington & Jim Dennis, none of whom were present. June’s drawing will be for $40.00.
