Letter from the President

Hello NCA Members,

A lot went on at our NCA Meeting last Wed.  This note is to update you on a few important decisions our club has made.

Our members voted to move our regular meeting location from AAA to the Elk's Club.  Our first meeting at the Elks will be on April 10th.  The Elk's Lodge is located at 5910 S 58th, just behind the Skeeter Barnes restaurant by 56th and Old Cheney. They have a resturant that serves sandwichs, burgers, chili, etc. along with a bar should you want a cocktail or a beer.  Thanks go to Jerry Wilson for helping us secure our new meeting room.

Date change for our March meeting at AAA to March 20th.  The reason for that is we will have a special guest speak to us.  Wendell Strode, Curator of the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY will be attending to give us an update on the NCM.  Wendell will be in town for a Museum Mgrs. Convention at Speedway and contacted our trusty NCM Ambassador, Tom Svoboda to ask if he could join us at our meeting.  Mark your calendars to attend this special event.  I suggest you bring a extra chair to be sure we have enough seating.  We have been filling up all our seats the past few meetings and I expect a big crowd to hear what Wendell has to say.  Thanks to Tom for lining that up.

The 40th Annual Rocky Manginelli Memorial Swap Meet is coming up fast. Kerry Fox still needs a little more help from our members to fill out his work crew.  This is very important to our club because we get paid for our work at the meet.  We generally use the money to fund our scholarships.  So, if you can help out, email Kerry.

Grand Geezer Bud says the Geezer trip is sold out!  Wow, that went quick but if you want to get on a waiting list just shoot Bud an email. Someone may cancel or maybe forget they signed up.  I can't wait to get old enough to go on a Geezer Trip.

Adopt a Highway clean up day is April 21st.  Trashmaster Jerry McGee is asking for volunteers to help clean our section of highway 77 just south of Davey.  It is just a mile long and doesn't take long if enough help shows up.  Meet at 2 pm at Walker Tire.  Walker is on the SE corner of the I-80 and HWY 77N. Treats for all that help at Culver's on N 27th after the work is done.

Our NCA Social info for Feb. 27th.  We are going to meet at Big Red Keno on West O St.  The address is: 955 W O St.  Big Red is one of our car show sponsors so this will be a way to show some support from our club.  It is a fun sports bar with good food and cold beer. Rick Otto was checking on a place where La Paloma used to be but it is closed.  I forgot the name of the joint. (Maybe I am old enough to be a Geezer)

Let's have fun and do some good along the way.
