MEMBERSHIP: Bill Binning reports that we currently have 223 paid members.
It was reported that Jim and Barb Dahnke have sold their car.
MCA CAR SHOWS: The MCA is having shows next year in Indianapolis, Myrtle Beach and Niagara Falls.
Ton Antor asked if we could be the host club for an MCA Show in Grand Rapids. The City would be interested in backing us. The question of the WMMC standing with the MCA needs to be considered before we could host a show according to the MCA by laws.
WEBSITE: Phil Gibson reported that his friend Evan is working on a new Website design. The Snickers Bar was delivered to Phil to give to Evan. Miniature Snickers Bars were passed out at the table. Phil showed a mock up of the design and it is very upbeat and modern looking. While Phil and Evan have some control of the site, Pro Boards has most of the rules that need to be followed.
SHOW PARKING: Rick and Mr. Betten were going to talk to Meijer about parking some cars on their property. It was noted this evening that Meijer is tearing up turf so parking there might be unavailable.
Everest School has closed so maybe some parking can be obtained at that site.
So far we have 75 cars registered for the show and we have 8 trophy sponsors.
Awards have been ordered and are being worked on. Next year we might consider putting the top Mustang on the award for the 2016 show.
