Message from the President

Our next meeting will be Thursday, June 16th at 7:30 p.m. Directions to our meeting location can be found on the website

Those of you that attended the North Texas Classic Car and Boat Event at Lake Grapevine certainly enjoyed a good, hot day! A hearty thanks to V.P. David Kanally for organizing a great event in conjunction with the local chapters of the Classic Car Club of America, and the Amphicar Club. If you missed the event, don’t fret! David’s son videotaped the event and has produced a DVD that we will show at our June meeting. This is a must-see (and must-have) so come to the meeting and place an order for your own copy.

ATTENTION SKIPPERS: If you are not planning on attending one of the two events scheduled for this coming weekend (see Upcoming Boating Events, below), then how about making a day-trip to Lavon?! Mike Gomes plans on being at the boat shop around 9:00 AM Saturday to load up if anyone is interested.

Contact Mike @ , or (972) 267-6733.

If anyone would be willing to provide refreshments to this month’s meeting, call Mark @ (214) 265-1135. (Alternatively, BYO!)
