New Business:
Marty will be setting up the schedule of the upcoming drives on the web site soon. If you have any ideas for a new drive or would like to lead a drive send an email to the club.

We will be unable to have the Car Show this year at Country Village as they have sold that lot and will be in the process of some development. We checked Griots and they are booked for this year. We will be checking with them for a slot for 2017. So we would like suggestions for this year’s Car Show. We usually have it the 2nd weekend of August but could be flexible on the date. Marty mentioned possibly having the show at LeMay and he will be checking into it.

Dues – Please get them paid. We need to get a list to our Sponsor.
Dues are $40, the earlier you get those in the more points you will get. Members with the top 3 point totals will get a gift at the Christmas Party. You can pay via Pay Pal from the Membership Link on the Web Site or at one of the Monthly Meetings, http://zccw.org/zccw/

Michael has posted a video of our 2015 Drive at Maryhill at the following link: https://youtu.be/ScE30MxIpe8

Let the club know if you would like to possibly do a calendar or possibly a poster.

There is a Members Ride page on the website. If you would like to get a picture of your car posted, send a picture to Janene with a little blurb about it.

Marty will be getting the 2016 Members Cards soon.
