RODRIDERS NEWS
Carl’s junior car cruise has now been moved to Get The Burger for the remainder of the season and is every Wed at Get the Burger from 5 to 8PM. Looks like there will be a large showing of cars this evening 9/28/11- should be a lot of fun.

The club is meeting at the Donut Shop in Staters parking lot on Sat from 8AM until 10 am.

The T-shirt order is still in work but progress was made at our last meeting, the money for the silk screens and film have been paid for, but before we turn in the order we want to add the Hoody’s and sweat shirts to the existing order. The club finally paid for the art work that was used on our banners and will be used for our clothing order. If you want hoody’s or sweat shirts bring money to next meeting.

Geoff suggested that we all get together for a pizza night at village pizza; Geoff is looking into setting that up and will bring the info to the next meeting

Halloween in the village is Oct 31, we will have the same space as last year at the intersection of village and pine, and we expect to have a Hearse and the Munster car. Nancy and Joe are buying the majority of the candy to give to the children from Cosco, but everyone should still bring at least (1) bag of candy. Kenny is re-verifying our spot in the village.

Next meeting is on October 11th at 6 pm.

Many new car shows are coming up please check the list to see if any interest you. We would like to have a large showing of our car club for the Yucaipa car show the first Friday of November which is there toy drive. Please put this on your calendars. Discussion at Sept. 13th meeting about this show and looks like most members will attend. Several members were showing interest in the October Yucaipa Car show which is on October 7th from 6 to 9PM but you need to get there early if you want a spot. Usually we leave Big Bear at 3:30PM and get there by 4:30PM.

Great pictures from Fawnskin Labor Day weekend car show.   Kudos to Geoff Guy for getting the show off the drawing board and to Joe & Nancy for manning the Rodrider’s and all the other members who made this show possible by volunteering and gathering raffle prizes from local merchants.  Let’s make next years show bigger and better.  Thanks to all.
