Bowties vs the World:
August 24 is the date @ NAPA’s main store (111-Ave/172 St). Sponsorship opportunities for several awards are now being accepted.. Most of our past sponsors are returning & many thanks to them. We also require door prizes as well. The event poster is to be completed when ALL sponsors are accepted.. The Cruise calendar has our event in it already. The registration fee remains the same and if Jim can get the award production cost at the same price as last year, that award cost will not change for the award sponsors.
Club calendar 2020:
Norm & Jim are working this concept, supported by all members (featuring their vehicles) discussion at the next meeting. Date & place for photo shoot should be finalized.. The possibility of using “models” on the shoots was also discussed, as is the Pro photographer to be used.. Last year was a “feeler’ for the idea & there is a large number of businesses with interest in being on this project for this year’s calendar..
There is a large number of members interested in purchasing a club jacket (spring & summer style) plus the club has to get some club t-shirts as the current supply is getting low. Jim to get some prices & report at next meeting..
