Hello Club Members,
Happy Spring! At least that is what the calendar says. Someone may want to wake up Mother Nature to remind her that Winter is over and blue skies, sunshine and warmth are in order. OK, enough whining and on to happy thoughts.
Our annual planning meeting on March 30th was attended by a roomful of club members, eager to get things started. We have planned many new adventures for this year, look on our 'Events' page to see all that we have included.
I am excited to say that we have several members for the first time, looking forward to joining our sister club, The Land of Lincoln's Bloomington Rendezvous in Illinois this fall. You should have received a registration form, and we hope that more of you will plan to attend. It is very inexpensive, compared to most other conventions and is a lot of fun. It is an easy drive down scenic US 24 West to I-55 South and you are there! Just two turns. If anyone else wants to join in, or if you need a registration form, just let me know. It starts with a welcome party on Friday night, (cost is $5.00) a road trip to see a private car collection and memorabilia in Pekin, IL. (cost is $15.00). Saturday is dinner at your cost at a Steak House, just across the parking lot, then back to the hotel for coffee and desert, plus a chance to win a free nights hotel room. Sunday is the car show, with registration (only $15.00). The hotel is only ($99.00 per night with breakfast included) Make plans to join us!
Also we have a VTCI Convention in Princeton, New Jersey, August 8th-11th plus we have ITC's International Convention in Cleveland, Aug. 6th-11th, only a 3 hour drive for most of us. Please give it some thought to attending either convention.
April 20th is our first car show of the season, The Living Faith Car Show in Yoder. This one is a staple for us and we have always done well there. Last year it was rained out, so let's hope for better weather this year.
We have gained two new members over the Winter, they are Theresa Knotts and Diane Erwing from Danville, IN. They each own a 2002 Thunderbird, one in Inspiration Yellow and one in Thunderbird Blue. We welcome them and look forward to having them join us in upcoming events.
Our club treasurer informs me that just a few of you still haven't sent in your yearly dues. Please remit as soon as possible.
That's all the news from Hoosierland, COME FLY WITH US!
