Meeting Notes, May 10,
We had 11 people at Mimi's for
the May meeting of the Capitol Panteras. The weather was better than
last month but there were no Panteras in the parking lot! John
Worsley does have his Bricklin up and running thanks to some help from Carl
Stein. The group consisted
of; Duane & Darice Harlan, Jim & Emilia Seiferling, John
Worsley, Rick Carlile, Carl Stein, Ken Montgomery, Jeff Budelli, John
McNamee, and Henry Kirk. Next month will surely be the month for
a large number of club cars! Treasurer John has issued a challenge to
everyone to bring their club car to the next meeting or face a $5 fine!(to be
collected by the Treasurer)
Club Treasurer, John McNamee, reported that the club is
solvent with more money than we have had in a long time. John was
also the model for a shirt with the new Capitol Pantera
logo. If you wish to order shirts with the new CP Logo, call or
fax John with your selection of size, color and style. He said the cost
would depend on the type of shirt selected, but would be in the $16-30
range. He said that he could have it to you at the next CP meeting, on
The recently re-instituted monthly club meeting raffle
did not occur this month. Look for its return next month.
John McNamee and Jeff Budelli have had trouble with a
date for the May Wine Run and BBQ. The end
destination will be the Fairplay area. Jeff has already driven
the route and has some fun roads in mind for the outing. We will end the
cruise at John's for a BBQ. Thanks to Jeff and John for working on this
outing. My though was to try for a date in September. The weather would
still be good and that would give us all plenty of time to save the
date. We will discuss the Fall date at the next meeting.
The date for the Thunder Valley Casino Rally &
Brunch is Sunday, June 26. The cost will be ~ $17 per person. We
will meet at the Mimi's parking lot at 10 AM. We will then caravan
to Thunder Valley for Brunch. If you will be coming from the other
direction, try to meet us at Thunder Valley for our 11 AM arrival.
John Worsley has arranged for special reserved parking at the Casino for the
Club cars. Thank you John for setting this event up with the Casino.
The Wine Country Classic Vintage Races are coming up June
4-5, at Sears Point. CP member Carl Stein will be driving his 1966
Shelby Trans Am Mustang in the event. The Shelby Club will allow us
to join their corral at the event. If you would like a corral pass for
your Pantera, please contact Rick Carlile as soon as possible.
