Vettes For Vets:   Jeff Salters, of Salty’s, is interested in sponsoring this event.  The general consensus was that this is a sticky situation since the event is being hosted at Chuy’s.  We need to be care and get more information (i.e. what is he expecting out of it, what specifically does he want to do).

Surf City Corvettes of Sunset Beach has reached out to Virgil and he will get back to them.  Three Way Chevrolet pays us $1,200/year as a sponsor.  Dick will contact Mike Thomas/sales and set up a meeting regarding an event sponsorship

Getting to Know You:  Four people have declined Danny request to participate in this for next month.  Everyone agreed this was a popular part of the general meeting and would like to have it continued.  Bob and Danny will talk later with new ideas.

Newsletter: The Chronicles are up to date and Adrian will post last weekend’s Civil War Event at Fort Tejon soon.  Adrian suggested our logo be updated since the C8 has come out.  It was suggested that maybe it be simpler…???  Food for thought. 

Next Meeting:  Those signed up for refreshments and prizes have been notified.

Adjourn:     6:30 PM
