We had no meeting at
Mimi's in December for the Capitol Panteras.
Capitol Panteras appears to be in a tie for second
place in the article contest at POCA! That should mean bragging rights for the
Capitol Panteras, as well as some money for our treasury!
The rough CP calendar for 2006 is listed below.
Please note that several events have the chairman listed, in case you forgot
that you volunteered to chair the event. If you have any ideas, please
bring them to the January meeting to be discussed and placed on the CP
Meeting Notes, January
The Capitol Panteras started the year off at Mimi's with a
pretty good sized group. We had 12 members and guests in attendance.
Those attending were: Paul Bowen, Jeff Budelli, Rick Carlile, Terry Eriksen
and friend Kathy, Carl Stein, Ken Montgomery, John Worsley, Gary &
MaryAnn Kono, and Emilia & Jim Seiferling. Gary is the new president
of PCNC . They were visiting family in the area and decided to
attend one of our CP meetings. It was great to see Terry up and
walking!! He said that he still can not manage the clutch
Pantera, but is getting better by the day. There were four
members who were unable to attend, but send us their regrets for missing the
meeting: Dennis, Rick M., Henry, & Duane. That was very nice of
them. They all had good reasons for not attending. Dennis also told
us that he and Patty enjoyed hosting the CP Christmas party and would be happy
to do so again in the future.
We went over the 2006 club calendar. Please note the
dates. The first date that you need to remember is the Brunch on
Saturday , February 11 at 10 AM at Mimi's. Then it is off to Autorama or
whatever else your have planned for that Saturday. Please rsvp to Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you can
There is a date set for our Tech Session at Rick's shop.
Mark your calendar for Sunday, April 9, 2006.
The CP meeting date for February has been
moved back one week to Tuesday Feb. 21.
The feeling was attendance would be poor if it was held on Valentines Day.
Personally, that was one way to guarantee that I would get dinner out! So
mark you calendar for the new date Feb. 21.
The raffle at this meeting brought in $38 ! We raffled off
T-shirts provided by the new shirt company of Chuck Engles. He was
generous enough to send samples to the club. Thank you Dr. Chuck. The
happy winners were John, Paul and Terry.
John Worsley will again work on setting up a Brunch Run to
Thunder Valley in the summer. Thank you , John.
If you have attended a car function of any
type, please write about your car adventures and send it to email@example.com to be included in the next Capitol Pantera newsletter.
If newsletter articles are not received, then it will be more of Jim &
Emilia's automotive adventures.
