    As with usual this time of year there still are not
    many events to go to.What is becoming increasingly
    popular is monthly Saturday cruise ins.On the
    last Saturday of the month is Gayeway,Streetside
    and Keller/Williams.On the first Saturday is Garage
    One.I’m sure there are probably more.

    The next actual show is at Fish Hawk Ranch on Sunday,
    October 6th in Brandon.

    Also on October 6th for long time Tampa people is the
    racers reunion to commemorate the long gone
    Golden Gate Speedway on Fowler.This is the current
    site of the Big Top Flea Marketwhere the event will
    take place.

    Our club anniversary picnic (33) was a
    big success with quite a few members
    and cars showing up.See pictures on
    club face book page.

    As usual in Summer car activities have
    slowed considerably.Keep an eye on
    Premium Production Shows web site.Larry
    is doing a number of shows this time of year

    We are looking into doing another Anderson
    cart track event when the weather gets better.
    If we set it up we will need more serious
    Commitments than last time when only
    two people showed up.

    The next meeting will be Wednesday,July 17th
    at Bob Evans in Brandon Falkenberg and RT 60.
    6:30 to eat and 7:30 for the meeting.

    It looks like the Fathers Day Show,June 12th in
    Lakeland was the last show of any consequence
    for the Summer.

    For anyone who follows this show,the Bogy Bottom
    Show is no more.This was a very popular event but
    some times good things have to end.

    The next club event will be our annual club
    anniversary picnic.Like last year everyone bring
    your own food,the shelter(#7) will have a grill.It will
    be Saturday,July 20th 10:00 to 2:00 at Medard Park
    in Valrico.See more details on our facebook page.

    We had a few members at this years’ Bay Life
    Show.Me,Andrew,Richard,Jan and Ben but due
    to various circumstances we only had 3 vehicles.
    We did have a good conversation with a couple
    of potential new members,we’ll see.
    It looks like the next show will be the Fathers Day
    Show in Lakeland,June 12th.With their write in entry
    format,it may be too late if you haven’t already registered

    Our annual picnic is set for Saturday,July 20th at Medard
    Park in Valrico ,where we were last year.We will be at the
    same shelter(7) with the same format with everyone
    bringing their own food.As usual,they have a grill for

    “car show” signs out for directions.

  14. a message from the president

    The next meeting will be Wednesday,October 17 th at the Bob Evans on RT.60 in Brandon.

    Apparently due to lack of interest we didn’t meet our minimum of 24 club shirts.As noted on Facebook we will extend to October 13 th when we will be able place the order or just give everyone their money back.No matter how this turns out we are looking for an alternate source for the future.

    The next club targeted show will be at The Nativity Catholic Church at Kingsway and Rt.60 in Brandon,Saturday October 13th.Meet at site 8:00-8:30.Please respond at events on Facebook so we know who is coming.Doing this for our events allows us to save spots for parking.

    The following Saturday will be the GM show at Stingray in Plant City on Park Road.As usual meet 8:00-8:30.

    The big annual show at Bay Life Church on November 10th is a little unique in that they have excluded 2010 and newer cars.For everyone else we will meet 8:00-8:30.An alternate show on the same day is at Festival Park on U.S.301 in Zephyrhills.They accept all years at their show.

  15. SPECIAL NOTICE
    Due to the closing of Sonny’s we have moved the meeting to the Bob Evans at 10119 Horace ave. which is a street parallel to rt 60 on the east side of Falkenberg.Everything else will remain the same.

    The next meeting will be Wednesday,September 19th at Sonny’s in Brandon.6:30
    to eat and 7:30 for the meeting.

    The above link is the site to order and pay for our club shirts.As previously mentioned,
    on September 28th we will conclude the ordering period and the shirts will be printed
    and delivered to us.We will then start distribution at members convenience.Also at
    this time we will probably purchase a few more for sale to future members or current
    members who missed the first go around.

    The ultimate Chevy Show at Stingray Chevrolet in Plant City will be Saturday,October 27th.
    It would be nice for us to have a really good turnout for this one since at our meeting with
    them they doubted our ability to produce an event like this.

    The following month,November 10th there will be 2 events,Bay Life and Zephyrhills.Since
    Bay Life has excluded 2010 and newer vehicles,Zephyrhills would be an excellent choice
    to go to.

  17. A message from the president

    Our next meeting will be Wednesday,July 18th at Sonny’s Restaurant in Brandon
    at RT.60 and Falkenberg.6:30 to eat and 7:30 for the meeting.

    Our big event for July will be our Summer club picnic at menard Park in Valrico
    Saturday,July 28th,10:00 to 2:00.One of our consistent problems has been not
    knowing how many people are coming to events like this so we end up with
    too much food or not enough.This time we will be doing a pot luck arrangement
    where everyone brings their own food and drink and possibly a side dish.We will
    have our signs out to pavilion 10.This is where we were last year so the site has
    a grill if anyone brings anything needing cooking.

    It looks like the Fathers Day Show on Florida Ave. in Lakeland was pretty successful ,
    see pictures in events on our face book page.

    The formerly postponed show at Regal Chevrolet in Lakeland is back on for Saturday,
    July 14th.

    Like a lot of groups like us we get a lot of inquiries about where people can get
    reliable parts,service,etc.What we are doing is accumulating a list of places we
    have confidence in and putting them on the website under preferred vendors.
    If you know of anything additional please let us know to add to the list.

  18. A message from the President

    The next meeting will be at Sonny’s Restaurant in Brandon.Falkenberg

    for the dreaded Summer.May 19th the Regal Chevrolet Show was
    canceled and the next week the Baylife Church Show was rained out,
    A word on the Church,they couldn’t reschedule because their people
    were going on their annual missionary trip.

    The F-Body Nationals that survived the hurricane last year in Memphis
    is on again for the weekend of September 21-22.

    The annual Zephyrhills swap meet is back on track for Festival Park after
    last years hurricane.The date is the weekend of November 8-11.

    Thanks to our Club Facebook Page,we are getting a number of group
    members but it would be nice to have actual club members.

    Percy and I met with the Stingray Chevy Manager about a possible sponsor
    arrangement.Apparently they didn’t feel we were a big enough group and
    will probably pass. Nothing is a sure thing so something could develop.

    The show season is starting to taper off a little now but there are a few before
    it starts to get too hot.

    For anyone in the North Tampa area there will be an open show at the
    Methodist Church at the corner of Linebaugh and North Blvd. on
    Saturday,May 5th.

    in turnout at shows lately.Representing the club were

    Mularoni,Duane and Morgan.

    A few weeks later we all went to the Moose Lodge in
    Valrico Saturday,March 24th.It was a nice show and
    they had some good food.We had most of our usual
    group with Me, Richard,Percy and Dee,Cathy and Roy,
    Chuck (subbing as an Uber driver bringing somebody
    elses car)and the Holbrooks. Buddy won a trophy
    for best body (to clarify,it was for the car).

    Starting next month we will be going paperless with
    the newsletter front page available on the Blog at our
    Website on the first of every month.We will still
    be collecting dues to establish club membership and to
    fund our expenses such as Website,events (picnics,etc.)
    Between the website and Facebook we should be able to
    keep our members updated in a timely fashion on anything
    going on.

    time has come for someone to step up and provide
    some relief to keep one of our club features going.
    Please let us know if you are interested. 949-1930
    933-2089.

    The St. Francis Show February 10th was another big
    success for the church. We had a good turnout with
    Me, Andrew, Percy, Dee, Richard, Chuck, Jim + Kathy
    Kolar and Mike Mularoni representing the club.

    Our next club targeted show will be the Veterans
    Park show on Saturday, March 10th.The site is on

    the site and need to know who is coming. So far
    there is Me, Percy, Richard and Chuck.
