New Business
1. Tim Wilder mentioned that Pete had approached Dave Judd about finishing the Studebaker. Pete said Dave has expressed interest and would have a spot in his business building to keep it while working on it. Pete suggested someone with more knowledge of the repairs needed should speak with Dave. Real offered to follow up on that.
2. Jon Parker suggested we give “I support” tee shirts to the people who brought in food for the Bob Haas gathering. June will be contacted to come up with names and sizes.
3. Jon Parker suggested for future Class A uniform purchases that a % of the cost rather than a flat $100 should be the volunteer’s portion of the price. The association officers and trustees will work on a formula and present it at the January meeting.
