blowing the leaves off the neighbors trees, and snow in the forecast for this
week. I guess it’s time to put the truck away on the lift in the shop and begin
the work to finish it up for next year’s play time. I’m sure that many of you
have already done that. I feel pretty good about how it ran this year, 3500
miles and no problems, (knock on wood). I would like to have it ready for the
trip to Redding for the Kool April Nights show weekend. I hope you can plan to
make the run down to northern CA for that show. From what Gene, Clarke, Johnny,
and the others who’ve gone down in the past years say, it’s a pretty good time.
I for one, want to experience the Cruise, I understand that its 6 lanes wide for
a couple of miles and that the people are lined up 6 deep to see the cars.
There has once again been a
change of dates for the Twin City Idlers Christmas party at the Camano
Center…it is now scheduled for December 9th
same time from 5 to 9 PM with dinner at 6. The Club will provide a ham and we
will be sending out more info on dishes to bring for the potluck dinner.
Sig Hanson sent me multiple
emails with club member’s car pictures for use on the 2018 calendar and I want
to thank him for that. I sent them forward to Jerry Haugstad, Justin Beard, and
Phil Berns to select the cars they want on the calendar for next year. Their
plan is to have them done and to be able to have them ready for the Christmas
Party and/or the last meeting of the year in December.
We are still getting inquiries
from people who want to join the club, we had 2 at the last meeting where the
guys had been out for a drive in the nice weather we had last week and saw our
cars at the Crow’s Nest and stopped in to see what was going on and picked up
the registration forms. Still growing and what a great group of members we
have. It’s great to see 25 to 35 plus people coming out to our lunch cruises.
After all, it’s all about driving our cars!!! The dates for November cruises
are Saturday the 11th
and Tuesday the 28th.
We will be giving out
Thanksgiving gift cards soon to help the people in need locally enjoy the
Thanksgiving they might not be able to have on their own. I believe that Giving
Tuesday is on the 28th
that is when we will be giving out the majority of our car show earnings this
Don’t forget the 4 PM Saturday
afternoon cruise in to the Dairy Queen. There is also a group of us that meet
up for lunch every Friday at the Stanwood Café as well. Show up any time after
11 and we order at 11:30. If you’re out and about, stop by and have lunch or if
you’re a Saturday morning early bird, stop in for Breakfast at the Stanwood Café
as well. We order at 7 AM and out of there around 8. You are all welcome to
stop at either of these. Remember, smokem’ if you can, and it’s ok if you can’t…
just keep on looking good as you always do!!! Hope to see you on the road and
be sure to wave when we pass.
All the Best,
