Old Business

1. British Car Classic: The British Car Classic held at the Kings Head Pub on Saturday, October 22 was a great success. Sybil Bradley and Bruce Sedelmeyer lead the team from our Club that planned and executed the event. 77  British Classics attended a superb event; the weather was perfect, all aspects of the event were executed smoothly without any issues. Parking was accomplished without any snarl-ups. The Voting tabulation was completed in record time thanks to Team Lead Richard Gross and his small team of vote tabulators. We received many compliments from those attending from other British car clubs for a most enjoyable and smoothly executed event. The event made a profit of $1,400 and raised $381 for a local Food Bank.
