Sunday November 1,
2015, 5:15PM and almost DARK… I hate going back to Pacific Standard Time. In my
opinion, we should go an hour or maybe two the other way and have longer
afternoons. Who needs it to be lighter in the morning? Not me or anyone I
know, awe just venting. Also the Saturday afternoon cruise to Dairy Queen will
be at 3PM with the time change.
We had a Great turnout
for our first dinnerless meeting not at the Stanwood Café. Many of us went out
to dinner after the meeting, some went for Mexican, and some went for Chinese.
At the meeting, we discussed options and decided to keep the Stanwood Community
Resource Center as our meeting place for now.
It was also
discussed and decided to have a food drive for the November meeting. Please
remember to bring canned or non-perishable food to the meeting on November 19th
that we can deliver to the Stanwood Camano Food Bank.
We had a couple of
Great cruises last month to Nutty’s Junk Yard Grill and to Ellie’s at the
Airport with about 17 cars and 24 people to each. There were no excuses as the
weather for both was as good as it gets for October with sunshine for both
dates. I thought that we might be able to not go for our lunch cruises in
November and December with the holidays and all, but a lot of members thought
different. The November lunch cruise dates will be Saturday November 7th
and Tuesday November 19th with the times being the same
with line up at 11AM and rollout from the Viking at 11:30 with the destinations
yet to be determined.
We also gained another
new member, Lonnie Baird joined the Idlers. Lonnie’s driving a Blue ‘51 Ford F1
pick up. Red Weaver III joined the Idlers last month as well. Red’s a truck
guy as well. So please join me in welcoming them both to the club.
The meeting room sure
got quiet when we started looking for nominations for club officers. We had 2
nominated for VP, Tom Courtney and Pat Richardson. For the positions of
President, Treasurer, and Secretary only the incumbents were nominated. We also
got a little ahead of ourselves with the nomination of Clarke Hamm as Chairman
of the 2016 Twin City Idlers car show with me as co-chair.
Also, please keep Dave
and Audrey Gibson in your thoughts. Audrey is in a Mount Vernon care center and
Dave will be having back surgery in a couple of weeks. Dave said that he has 3
surgeries scheduled in the upcoming months. All the Best to both Dave and
remember, smokem’ if you can, and 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,
