Bakersfield Car Club Council, Inc.: Danny and Larry met with Chris, Betty and Larry of the BCCC. In 2020, Street and Super Cruze will not have conflicting dates, however, all future years will conflict. BCCC promote three shows, the Super Cruze, Chuey’s and Reason for a Cure. The BCCC is not a car club, but a Council of Clubs. Do we want to get back with the BCCC? A lot of discussion followed. Membership has already voted NO. We’ll stick with that and stay neutral.
Gambler’s Classic: A group of members was approached at a recent event in Prescott, AZ regarding the future of Gambler’s Classic. The event has been missed by other clubs. There was a lot of discussion. We will take this back to the membership again.
Club Logo: It was suggested, that with the advent of the C8, we create a timeless logo for the club. Larry handed a sample to Virgil and put him in the lead of the subject. Suggestion was made to put an incentive out to club members to come up with a new logo ($50 or $100). Bill will present this at the general meeting, offering $100.
Storage Shed: Danny and Larry went over there and said it was filled STUFF. In January, they’d like to get everyone together that has put STUFF in the storage unit and go through it and get rid of anything that is not needed.
New Officers: Nominating Committee is headed by the Vice President. Need to start thinking about upcoming elections.
Treasurer Report: Larry shared that there is total of $25,996.89 in both accounts.
Linda McNitt present an invoice for the dues, $25.00. Larry will turn it over to Carl.
Liz asked why do we need so much money in our account? What do we do with it? Danny explained, in the past, it has been used for seed money for Gambler’s Classic.
