Club Logo:    Bill is still working on it.

Streets of Bakersfield:  Larry had Virgil share with the board the contents of a meeting he attended earlier today.  Marking the streets is going to be time consuming and possibly challenging.  Currently, the Chalk Team consists of Steve Taylor, Mitch Townsend, Steve Dallons, Annie Bailey, Mark Pucilowski, David Kielty and Virgil Miller.  More volunteers are needed (8-10) to direct participants to their parking spots.  Will try to enlist more at the general meeting next week. Tony Castiglione, with the Streets of Bakersfield, will have vests for the volunteers.

Gambler’s Classic 2021:  Do we have someone that wants to lead it?  Linda McNitt suggested maybe we do it on a smaller scale or have it at a local hotel.  She also suggested a casino night one night and maybe a poker run on a second day.  There was a lot of discussion.  Liz suggested putting it out to the club at the next meeting.

Leap Year Day Run:  Thank you to Virgil and Kim Miller for the fun and successful run.

Newsletter:  Larry wants a monthly or semi-monthly digital newsletter that can be sent out to all members.  He wants contributions for it by all board members.  Nothing definitive was established by the board.

Upcoming Events:  The Loading Chute in Creston on 3/28/2010.  Roger Buckles will take the lead on this. Friday Night Graffiti at the Firehouse Rosedale Station has started back up beginning 3/6/2020.  Thursday Night Cruise-in at Chuy’s on Rosedale Highway has started back up.

Kim will be out of town for the General Meeting.  Someone is needed to take the minutes at the general meeting.  Liz volunteered.

Impromptu Events – If the events are going under the Corvettes of Bakersfield  name, the president needs to be “in the know”.

Nominations:  Bill sent out a letter and job descriptions to the membership.

Larry is having surgery 3/11/2020 and will be out of commission for a couple weeks.

New Business:  Linda McNitt presented meeting results from the last NCCC meeting.  NCCC only want a calendar of events from clubs.  To and from meetings (Board and General) and events are covered as long as they are on the calendar.  The next NCCC quarterly meeting is in Ventura the second weekend in May.  Linda suggested that if we put a run together for the Ventura area that weekend, the NCCC meeting could be an option for attendance for anyone going on the run.
