September Meeting

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Section Picnic and August Meeting

Monday, July 11th, 2011

The date of the picnic as reported in Mitch’s section review in MPH is incorrect.

The date in K17 is correct, the picnic will be SUNDAY July 31st starting at noon.

This is a great opportunity for the section to give back to the members, so we would like to see as many as possible participate.  The food and drinks will be provided by the section.

The picnic is also the time of the year when we decide who will receive the Dick Busby memorial trophy, awarded to the people’s choice winner for the most desirable Vincent.  There are no judging rules, the bike does not have to be stock, or original paint, or the cleanest, or even the best looking.  One way to look at it is, which Vincent would you most like to take home?

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to Jody Nicholas so we can get a head count to know how much food to buy.  Jody’s contact info is inside the front cover of K17.

Hope to see you there.
