Ron Wood has been able to secure a $1,000 Car Show sponsorship from Ashley’s Furniture. Also, Bill Newsam recently acquired a $250 sponsorship from Mid State Transmission. We still need more Sponsors and Door Prizes. See Bill Newsam for Tax Certificates to give to the donors.
The club voted to keep the same format for concessions since it worked so well last year. Donations and workers are greatly needed. The sign up sheet is available at each meeting. This was very profitable to the club due to the donations made by members.
Ricky Fisher presented information on the antique car tag charge. Currently the law is still 25 yrs. No one is quite sure when the law will officially change to 45 years. If you need antique tags, get them now!
The Bryant Fall Fest Car Show is September 28. It will be held Bishop Park in Bryant.
