August News By Mr. Cruise

I've heard nothing but great feed back about the Cruise to Oregon. Lots of stuff to do, reasonable prices ....down right cheap in some instances, fun and games at all the venues. Someone got to play "Mr Fireman" we hear. We're going to suggest Nikki make someone wear a safety helmet. Great job Mike, Diane, Rick and Margie!

We did have a good group assembled for the day at the Airfest. We departed Paulette's with 23 Roamin Angel cars and two guest cars. It was a nice looking classic train up the hill to the airport. Hopefully we can get Cobra owner and guest Mike Thompson to join up. Need some help there Chuck & Doreen.
In August we've got excellent adventures with Landon & Dave...see the article...

Friday morning breakfasts with comedy, Saturday morning coffee klatch at "The Donut shop" hosted by those Roadents, a general meeting "Big A" cruise on the 20th , and the monthly Pizza nights, Mel's nights, and Alta Sierra show and shine. You have so many opportunities to cruise short or long or both. Get that bomb out of the garage and go somewhere!

Get out of cruise mode now and let's talk Car show.

Jean had a couple of people ask what was going on at this year's show. Tex and I have worked hard keeping the show the same.....but different. We are ahead of last year's car count, we've got more vendors of all types asking for space, it will be good.

Here are the highlights. If you have any questions about a particular event or want to help out, give Tex, Mex or your favorite director a call. Don't forget, member registration costs double in mid August. Send in those green apps now. Look at what you'll get.

Terry - PresidentPresident's message
Looking at the calendar on the wall we are six weeks away from "THE BIG SHOW". All of the critical contracts and agreements have been signed and most of products and supplies are either on order or ready to order. Mike, Dave and all the chairpersons have shifted into overdrive putting the finishing touches on "Cruisin' the Pines" #14.

What can you do to help? Event posters need to be distributed – call Wally Kronland and he'll set you up with the posters and a specific area. There are distribution lists to guide you to the various stores and offices.

If you haven't signed up with one of the show chairmen to help out at the Show, call either Mike Hauser or Dave Brown. They know what areas need help and will put you in contact with the right people. You can also inquire about which area needs help at the Information Booth which will be located close to Gate #1.

It's up to each and every member of the Roamin Angels to do everything that we can to make "our Guests" feel welcome and help meet their expectations for a great weekend.

Arrangements are under way for the Club to spend a few minutes remembering and reflecting on all of the Club's "Fallen Angels". At a date and time to be announced in the near future, Club members will gather and cruise out on Rough and Ready Highway to the Hospice of the Foothills facility. With our cars in view, our Club Chaplain John Klein will lead us in a pray of remembrance and time will be allotted for members to tell a story of whatever for one of members on Heavens Highway. We will conclude by presenting a donation check to the executive director at Hospice. Please plan on attending this special "HOUR OF REMEMBRANCE".

Now, just for fun, I'm looking into a wild idea. The Minnesota Street Rodders Association conducts a yearly "Going Back To The `50's Get Together" at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul. 2013 marked the 40th anniversary for this event. It is known as the largest gathering of pre-1965 classics and hot rods in the United States with some 12,000 participants and 125,000 spectators. I am exploring the concept of putting some type of a ROAD TRIP together for the 2014 event on June 20th-22nd. Three concepts have been raised so far; 1) Drive It – All The Way; 2) Trailer our cars to Des Moines, fly in and drive the 250 miles to St Paul; 3) Kathy finds us another great bus deal and we cross the country like a college football team.

Let me know what you think about this idea. Send me an email and just say, I/We like Option 1; Option 2; Option 3; or No Interest. Much more to come on this.
