"SHIFT'N GEARS FOR 20 YEARS" (and then some?)

As I write this, I am anticipating going to Back to The Fifties in St Paul, MN. I like to go about every 4 or 5 years. It's over 12,000 cars and over 100,000 people attend this event. It's usually very warm, but fun to attend. I will admit that, but I do not like the traffic. Oh well! And, I do like to see the vendors and maybe I'll get a chance to get some parts for my new '55 Chevy. It needs a lot of sheet metal and other parts, too.

Let's update with my projects: First of all, my lady in Garrison has taken her '55 Chevy pick-up for the first time and seems to enjoy it. The '55 Chevy 4 door sedan that we did for a customer up in Lignite is all done and delivered. The '67 Chevelle is delivered to club members Steve & Cindy Lauckner up in Kramer. That's three out that have been around for a while. Next will be the '40 Chevy 4 door sedan that I've been putting off for some time. When done (next week) it will be delivered to the customer in Garrison. Next up is finishing the '55 Chevy convertible and then going on to the '54 Ford two door sedan that is all painted and waiting for the assembly to start on my part.

I want to welcome Kevin Kvamme back to Minot and announce that we are working together on these projects. We're having fun and hope to continue in a great Forward direction.

The club is going strong and seems to have very little controversy on anything. That is neat because this club is built on fun, friendship, and comradery. New friends meet and long-lasting friendships have developed. Keep it up! One thing that will happen for next year is that we will be appointing an “Activities Coordinator”. We'll lay out the responsibilities of this position and start working towards having this set up for next year's Wednesday night and other activities for the club. If you think you would like this type of activity with the club, please be willing to step up and volunteer.

Well, there are a lot of things going on this summer with regards to shows and fun activities. Please check the web site for updates and calendar activities. If you see any Mistakes on the site, please notify one of us on the Board for a correction.

Be safe and have a fun summer.
