OVAHC November 2022 Meeting Minutes
Thirty-three members attended the meeting on Saturday, November 5 at the Jacobs home in Fairfield. The day was bright, very windy, sunny, and seventy degrees with leaves blowing everywhere. President John Jacobs called the meeting to order at 2:10 PM and thanked our hosts Joyce and Jake. President Jeff sadly informed us on the recent passing of member Billy Owens. Rest in peace.
Vice-President Scott, Secretary/Membership Dale, Historian John Parrott, President John Jacobs, and Web Site Administrator Don Klein had no report. Editor Mary Ann and Tech Director Tim were not present.
Tech Director Tim sent his report via email. On Friday, 10/21/22, six OVAHC Tech Team members met at the garage of Steve Bossert in Hamilton to do adjustments and give an initial evaluation on Steve's BT7 Healey that he recently purchased. We had help from Richard Pratt, Bernie Grabow, Paul Schondelmayer, and Dan Durbin along with Tim Ross and of course, Steve Bossert with his Florida green big Healey. Call or email Tim for advice, info on how to help, or to request a session.
Delegate / Business Manager Jake Jacobs informed us that when he attends the AHCA delegate meeting November 12 he expects them to raise dues for 2023. That is why they asked us to postpone paying dues until December. He gave a detailed preview of the issues concerning the dues changes that include affecting future publication of the Healey Marque magazine. Stay tuned for developments. If any members have topics for conversation or concerns for the delegates' meeting, contact Jake soon.

Cindy said she is required annually to submit an accounting of all our costs for the delegates' meeting. That will be published by Mary Ann per our bylaws. Cindy has the receipts for everything if anyone wants to see them.
The September Roundup co-chairs handed out a detailed final summary of our show which included a financial report. This critique of the event which includes compliments and suggestions is on file with the Treasurer. Rosalee Campbell said, "If anyone wants a copy I can email it to them. Contact me at RRMC4344@aol.com." Rosalee then asked for those on the committee to raise their hands for special recognition. Lauren Wallace said Rosalee was very instrumental in reducing our expenditures. Rosalee sold the remaining September Round Up regalia, along with receiving a donation, which increased SRUP net income by $45.00 for an exceptional total net income of $2,015.42. Rosalee and her Co-Chairs had projected a profit of at least $2,000 based on their budgetary guidelines and resourceful planning and purchase decisions. They are pleased to now have achieved and exceeded their goal for our OVAHC. Rosalee thanked everyone for their help and said she really appreciated it. A robust applause erupted from the appreciative members to our Co-Chairs!
Old Business: The Christmas luncheon will be Thursday, December 8 at The Pub in Rookwood Mews from 3 to 5 PM. We have our own room and please R.S.V.P. to Secretary Dale so we can get the seating coordinated. No meeting, no gifts. Members and guests are welcome. DLB55AH@CS.COM or 859-384-1345.
New business: President John sent out a survey to try to one help out with discussions at the delegates meeting so that we can say what our club wants. He did get 18 responses and then the last two questions were about what our club does: What we're doing well and what needs improved. Since he received no comments for improvements, he considers that a positive response for our current Club activities. The biggest thing he noticed was that everybody said they liked our drives and we had a couple people saying we should incorporate drives either before or after meetings or before or after the R&J lunches. There were also a lot of people who liked the overnight trips. So if somebody wants to take up and say "hey I wanna go on a drive", you will have people that will line up to drive and ride with you.
