​May OVAHC Meeting Minutes 
Twenty-six members attended the May meeting in person on Sunday, May 16. We began with “Happy Birthday” to host Bernie as he was celebrating his diamond jubilee. Dale thanked Mary Ann and Bernie for hosting and called the meeting to order at 2:00 PM. Presidents Wallace, Treasurer Cindy Loos, and Vice-Presidents John Jacobs and Jeff Porada were away. Secretary Dale, Membership Sandy, Editor Mary Ann, and historian John Parrott all had no report.
Tim gave the tech team report. Working backwards: on Monday May 10 we made a return visit to John Parrott’s garage to bleed his brakes on his “new” BJ7. We removed the unpainted - fitted fenders and shrouds on his project Healey and started Josh’s square body Sprite. We were at Skip’s on Friday, May 7 and removed his MGA engine. Yes, he had a two-piece crankshaft. On Monday, April 26 we worked on John and Josh Parrott’s British cars and drove the Jensen-Healey and Sprite. On Sunday April 25 we were at Dad’s Garage (Bernie) to fix the steering on Ben Grabow’s MGB-GT. Tim fixed his own Healey speedometer and replaced his tires. Richard needs a windshield replacement. Call or email Tim if you have questions, want to join in the fun or need to schedule a session.  
Jake Jacobs gave Treasurer Cindy’s report. We deposited seventeen members’ online rebates totaling $ 255 for 2021. The only debit was for the $75 allowance for the Ballinger April meeting. Tech team still has $2,272 and our overall balance is still incredibly good.  
Business Manager Jake has found a site for three 2021 drivers training sessions. Details and dates will be published. On Saturday, June 19 their Pastor has invited us to attend their car show (free) at Serenity Baptist Church 9000 Cox Rd. West Chester, OH 45069. Please make the effort to attend.  
Delegate Jake reported the AHCA insurance rider will be $200 per event. He commented that Vice President Jeff Porada and Nancy Bacon are in California to attend the Big Bear Conclave.  
Activity Activator Skip asked who is going to Springthing Thursday, May 20 for a 3-day fun-filled weekend. Caravan info from Murphy’s in Florence was shared. Concours D’elegance on Sunday, June 13 has prepaid $20 tickets for our club available from Skip, saving $5. Let him know if you want to buy some and be prepared to pay him. We will meet again at the First Watch in Rookwood Commons for breakfast and to start the caravan together to our GREAT club corral parking spot.  
The Hendersonville, NC trip will start Wednesday, June 23. Stop at the Cumberland Gap overnight going down. John Wallace is looking for a count. As of now, seven couples are interested. New info: make your reservation at the Best Western in NC and not the Hampton Inn. Ask for the Austin – Healey group and the first floor if you do not like steps. Also, John wants the return caravan to be two stops. He likes the Boone Tavern in Berea, KY. The members present decided they want to blast home in one day. Contact President John with any questions, please.  
Vice President Jeff requests that we attend the July 11 Gilmore Museum, Mad Dogs and Englishmen with a tribute to everything Healey car show in Michigan. In mid-September Jake and Joyce Jacobs along with Jeff Porada and Nancy Bacon, will attend The Summit in Rhode Island. Late September we will have a caravan to September Roundup 2021 at Mohican State Park. The Southeast Classic is over 900 miles south on October 21 in Tampa, Florida. Scott Brown and Joe Yannone are planning on attending. September 2022, the Enclave will be in the Poconos in New York state. For activity questions, contact Skip. 
Old business: The 2022 September Roundup committee is constantly working on the planning for our 9/8-11/2022 event. Get your Healeys all fixed up and please be willing to participate in this exciting show.
New business: Healey ROMEO guys’ lunch is 5/19 at Cabana on the River near Cleves at 1:00 PM. Healey Hotties ladies’ lunch is 5/26 at 12:30 at Grove Park Grille near Riverbend. Contact the Wallaces if you have luncheon questions. The next meeting is at the Hall / King home in Fairfield on Saturday, June 12. Details will be published in the Newsleak. 
Secretary Dale thanked the Grabows for hosting and then adjourned the meeting.
