It's time to elect a new slate of officers

By Don Bays

Meeting set Sunday, Aug. 19, 4 p.m. at Hometown Buffet,
please plan on eating there.

It's that time of year again when we elect a new slate of club officers.

This year, we will gather at the Hometown Buffet at 3901 NW Expressway (where NW 63rd crosses) at 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 19, to count ballots and christen our incoming 2001-2002 officers. The restaurrant is reserving the large meeting room for us at no charge, but they do expect each of us to eat there, so try to come hungry. This location does a better job of running an appealing buffet than most such operations. Please bring your ballot to the meeting if you can, save some postage.

Probably before you get this issue of the Dashboard will be our next dinner cruise which happens on Saturday, August 4. We'll meet at the A & W restaurant at 89th & South Western about 3 p.m. and will leave at around 3:20 p.m. to cruise to our dinner location. Just in case the phone committee does not reach you, or if you choose not to drive to the south side just to drive back to the north, we'll make this location not so very secret. We're going to Earl's Rib Palace at 6816 North Western. (This is run by the family of the man who was Elvis Presley's chef).

We're going to renew the ever-popular crazy hat day - best hat by popular vote (no electoral college here) wins a prize and gets to arrange an upcoming dinner cruise. Now, you need to wear your hat into the restaurant, no matter how silly you think you look - it's part of the charm! After this we'll return to the original format of cruising to a secret location. By all means, if you can, please cruise with the gang leaving from A & W.

Drive-In Movies anyone? Our annual cruise to the Winchester Drive-In Theatre happens this year on September 22nd (moved from the 15th by popular demand of University of Oklahoma football fans). Meet at the drive-in at 68th & South Western about 7 p.m.. They should open the gates for us about 7:30 p.m. and we'll all go in and park together. Attention members of other clubs - please get all the old car buffs you know invited to this one. If we could really turn out some numbers for the theatre they might be willing to order a special movie for us again. This is always a good event and something really cool to do with your classic. I'm going to try to do some extra calling and extra inviting this year. Won't you do so as well? Do you remember the first time we did this and old cars dominated the prime parking area? This event has been well attended since, but not the 100+ of that first year. We look forward to seeing you, with or without your car, at all club events. Remember this club is only as good as you make it with your participation. Be there or be square!
