Old Business

About 14 couples met with the Caney Cruisers Tue May 11 at Luigi's in Bartlesville. Most of us knew someone from the Cruisers and met others. Plan to meet with them next month too. Ken will send emails.

New Business
Friday night cruise will be at TallGrass motors, weather permitting. 6:30 pm, West side of Hwy 75 about a block North of Tuxedo.

Carol Ervin - she has several food vendors, in fact she has had to turn some away. Mexican, German, American and Eskimo (shaved ice). A lot of the sponsors are getting spaces this year

Ken reported that we could not get the transmission organized this year. Will try next year.

John Rowlett reported that things are going well. Big issue will be cleaning up and picking up after the show. Stay and help load barricades, trash barrels and take trash sacks to Jay's dumpster.

Neal Johnson asked for and got the three judges he needed.

One banner that was located in Dewey is missing. If you see it let Harvey know.

Edna is making cinnamon rolls this year. Now you know you need to be there early!!!

Registration is ready. Thanks Jeannie.

Just a reminder. Members do not enter our cars in the Car Show, but bring them to show in our area. Park and get a Host Card at registration.

Do you have an extension cord that is 100 ft long and 12 gauge for 20 amps? Call Ken.

Clark Donnell will bring his American Flag and Julie Pattison will sing the National Anthem. This will be scheduled so that the bells at the First Presbyterian Church do not compete. It was awesome last year.

Charlie McClellan has the National Guard to present the colors.

Ken showed a lamp made by Mike Nodine from motorcycle parts. It is really awesome. Ken was asking if we should have Wayne auction it off for one of our charities.

Ken asked about hiring a drone to fly over the show and make a 10 minute video. Response was sort of UH. We need to think about new ways to showcase our show. Ken and Carol will be on KWON AM 1400 radio’s “Community Connection” with Charlie Taraboletti on May 8th at 8:30 am to promote the show.
