Ongoing Business:  ACCC – Carl Agnew

The state Legislative session is over, but there is an item to keep an eye on.  Prop 54 is on the ballot that proposes to prohibit the legislature from passing any bill until it has been in print and published on the Internet for 72 hours prior to the vote.  This would prevent gutting and reallocating bills for a quick action, as used by some special interest groups.

Old Business:

1.      Jim Messineo Teddy Bear Run September 17th (Zack Rockwell).  Very successful event; there were 77 kids and many members (14 cars!) participated.  The balance (about $900) in the fund will be used for next year.  Bill Pugh shared that a stranger donated $20 after learning about the event. Zack may change the date for next year to the first week of Oct., to not conflict with other Club events.

2.      Ironstone Vineyards Concours d’Elegance, September 23rd and 24th (Pat Galvin).  Pat not here so Steve Rudy reported that there were beautiful cars and it was a great venue.  Two members won best in class: Steve Rudy with his 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 Roadster and the Pughs with their 1970 Triumph TR6 Roadster. 

3.      CAA Cruise Night, September 10th (Dan Rodriquez) Dan reported that there were 380 cars and many spectators at the event.  It raised $20,000 for the Auto Museum.  They will continue with the same format next year.  British cars garner the most attention!

4.      River Cats.  As an update to the event, Zack passed around the River Cats schedule for next year.  He looked at cost for box (only holds 20) and Legacy (VERY large) and for the Solon Club again.  Members discussed and agreed that May 6 or June 10 would be better; less hot weather. Zach will report back on availability.

5.      Update on TR3 sponsored at the Auto Museum.  Dan reported that they paid $140 for the generator.  Still under the limit of the donation; moving forward.

6.      Donated TR3 car parts:  Some parts have been claimed by members.  Contact Jerry if still interested.

New Business: 

1.      Club Trailer Work Day and Trailer Update, October 22nd (Jerry Costanzo) The trailer is 16 ½ feet long and we are installing dividers and shelving. This will be an improvement to the small trailer currently used by the Club for the Show and storage. We will start at 9:30 am.  Need an impact drill driver so if you have one bring it.  Contact Jerry if interested in participating.

2.      Rancho Murrieta Run, October 8th (Jim Davis) Maria’s Pat’s Pasta Run.  We will meet in Rancho Cordova this Sat.  Jim will send a reminder email with directions.  We will take the long route to Ranch Murrieta and end with a great lasagna lunch.

3.      Halloween Rally, October 29th (Kyle and Katie Owens).  Sign up circulating with choices for lunch.  Plan on dressing up to compete for a prize!  Meeting up at 9:30 at the Auto Museum. 

4.      Tony P reminded members that the Tree Trimming and Potluck at the Auto Museum will be November 27.  Look for a signup sheet at the next meeting.

5.      December Meeting, Christmas Party (Kim Mercer).  The December Banquet will be on Dec 6 at Rudy’s Hideaway starting at 6 pm.  Meeting first followed by dinner and raffle prizes. Sign up!

6.      Oilspots Editor – Still need a volunteer.  Kim said she is happy to train!

7.      Nominations for Officers.  This is the first month for nominations.  Nominations were as follows: President: no nominations.  VP:  no nominations. Secretary:  Katie Owens nominated Treasurer:  Katie Costanzo nominated. 

Think about additional persons to nominate. Nominations will continue at the next month’s meeting, and the final voting will be at the December meeting.

Dixon All British Motoring Show:  Jerry Costanzo.  The Show date is May 21.  Mark your calendar!!

Regalia:  Beni Feil (not present)

For the Good of the Club

1.      Dan: FYI there is a car show at the Marriott on Sunrise on 10/9 from 12 to 4 pm.  Sponsored by the Lincoln Highway Association. 

2.      There was a report that Pat Galvan needed assistance returning from Ironstone. Something about the rear end?

3.      There are UBSCC business cards available. Contact Katie C if you would like some.  They can be used to advertise the Club and the Show.
