Treasurer’s Report: We currently have $XX.XX in our account.
Martha gave a report on the Zone Meet. She talked to Tom Pinnel, president of the Avanti Club. They will be a happy to assist in any way they can but unfortunately, many of their club members do not come to Florida until October. Hopefully, there will be enough members to judge the Avanti Class. Tom recommended dividing the Avanti Class into 3 groups: 6A will be 1963 & 1964 Avantis, 6B will be 1965 – 1983 (the Newman Altman group with chrome bumpers) and 6C will be 1984 – 2006. Tom will ask if any members have Avanti memorabilia to display on Friday night and he will give a short talk about Avantis if no one else volunteers.
Colonel Terry Brooks from the South Georgia Chapter contacted me and said they had voted to send $200 to help with costs. Carolyn Crall from the Big Bend Chapter also called and her club will be sending $200 to help with costs.
Danny worked on the Turning Wheels ad, list of Divisions and registration form. Martha received address labels for the South East Zone from Cornerstone. There are 1015 labels for the SE Zone. The ad for Turning Wheels will be in the June edition.
Martha bought 20 black, 1963 model Avantis to use as centerpieces on Friday night.
New Business: Our next meeting will be on April 23rd. Danny, Bussey & Stephen will host a Scavenger Hunt Drive. Their first attempt was scuttled because the drive to Crystal River was too long. Information on the meeting Time and place will be shared closer to the 23rd.
If anyone is interested in having a club shirt, they can give Wayne Tanner a white collared shirt and $10 and he will have the club logo and your name embroidered on the shirt.
The meeting was adjourned at 11:50.
The Redman’s won the 50/50 and $XX was added to our club account.
