Due to the quarantine we could not meet in person. About twenty-five members attended the online meeting on 17 screens, hosted electronically by Mary Ann and Bernie Grabow on Sunday, October 11. President John Wallace called the meeting to order just after 3:00 and thanked Mary Ann for hosting.
Officers Dale, Sandy, John Parrott, John Jacobs, Jeff Porada, and our Presidents had no report for this month.
Treasurer Cindy said we had no new deposits since last month. She paid Jake $210 to reimburse him for paying our picture violation fee, and $93.88 to Bob Minton for printing and mailing expenses. For the tech team, she paid $302.39 to Winners Circle for a tool set and wire wheel balancer and then $51.35 to Tim Ross for a new club engine stand. Our balance is good. We also have the Tech Team balance.
Activity Activator Skip mentioned he was sporting the nice club shirt that Dale recently obtained for those in the club. Joan noted since it is embroidered with his name, people know who he is now (including Skip). The club weekend in Michigan earlier in October was wet, but exciting and well-planned by Bobbi and Tim Ross. Joan said Bobbi provided many printed maps etc. Skip made a motion to repay them $50. It was seconded and approved. Scott said the “Spring” Classic Driving Tour drive that Kurt ran yesterday was a lot of fun. Jerry Cox has invited the club to travel overnight to Hocking Hills for hiking, dining, and sight-seeing next week, starting Monday 10/19 returning the next afternoon. Looked like 6 couples said yes. Call Skip at 513- 720-7547 for other activity suggestions, questions, or comments.
Tech Director Tim had Zoom problems again, so Ken Campbell reported that the tech team showed up yesterday and started fixing his engine and will return tomorrow to keep assembling with new parts. Denny Lindauer took his engine to a shop, after he took his whole Bugeye to Jeff Porada’s shop. Plus, Denny has a fresh, professionally rebuilt rib-case tranny for sale. His phone is 859-384-1750. Call or email Tim if you have questions, want advice, want to help, or need to schedule a future session
.Business Manager / Delegate Jake said the November AHCA delegates meeting is all virtual this year due to Covid-19. New item is for all members to pay 2021 dues without AHCA mailing invoices this year. So, look in the Newsleak for a notice and do not wait for anything from AHCA. This saves much money for all. President Gary Feldman obtained new AHCA insurance.
New business: Dale made a proposal to remove all Newsleaks from our web site because we had to pay $210 for one photo, we still have 1000 pages of our 100 previous editions posted. Jake made a proposal that we review each edition for possible violations and then remove only what we deem necessary. The second proposal was approved. The years were handed out by the Presidents, and John Parrott will help decide the best course after we send him our reviews. If we need corrections or adjustments, Mary Ann and Don will assist. John Parrott has many years in the advertising and publishing business.
Old business: The 2020 Christmas party is still scheduled to be at The Pub in Rookwood Commons on Wednesday, 12/9/2020. As December nears, Dale will ask for RSVPs because The Pub needs to know if we are showing up in numbers to fill that room. If we need to cancel because of health concerns, we will.
The OVAHC November meeting was discussed. The Wallace home was offered for 20 or less members on Sunday, November 15 at 2:00 PM to kick tyres, and would include a Zoom meeting at 3:00 PM for everyone else online. Dale will ask for a response from all OVAHC members. President John thanked our hosts Mary Ann and Bernie and adjourned the meeting.
