Update: 3/25/15 

The Blackhawk Auto Museum has approved our request to use the outside patio for our member’s classic cars. I think we have about 4 guys that were interested in parking and displaying them.

Also that day the Model A Club will have about 15 cars on exhibit on the patio.  I would encourage everyone to visit the Blackhawk Auto Museum Website to see photos of the “The Spirit of the Old West” Exhibit that will be available to us with a Docent at 12:00 Noon that day.  Please advise me if you are bringing you classic car so I can inform the Museum of the make and model, etc. I know Ed Benson is bringing his 1957 Thunderbird.

March 9: 50th Anniversary extravaganza information

We’re on the countdown to our extravaganza next Monday, and I’m sure all of you will find the event to be very enjoyable. There are a few points that I want to cover with all of you prior to the event:
  • We are expecting over 300 attendees. I encourage all of you to find a carpool buddy so we have plenty of parking space. You also might think about coming a bit earlier than you usually do. Check in will start at 10:30.
  • A large number of our activity chairmen will be manning the activity tables, and they will be ready to explain their activities and sign people up. Take some time and drop by that activity you’ve been thinking about joining. It will be a great time to do it.
  • Since we have such a large crowd and an expanded program, plan on moving toward your seat around 11:15. We will start at 11:30 sharp, and it would be great if everyone was seated some time before that. Our goal is to adjourn at our usual time or a few minutes after.  Relax, chat with your friends and have a glass of wine.
  • Our Anniversary Committee has busted their butts to make this an outstanding event. It would be nice if you could take time to give them a pat on the back. Committee members are Sirs Darryl Sweetland, Stan Johnson, Walt Schick, Tony de Losada, Bill Peterson, Ron Cassano, Ed Cohn, Fred Nelson,Phil Trapp and me.
I’ll see almost all of you on March 9.
 
Big Sir Ed
