New Business:

The cruise season started Sunday April 28 at 6th Street Auto Zone, there were 84 registered vehicles, a good turnout considering the weather.  Best hand for the poker walk was Ed Gorney and lowest hand was Cheri Beard.  The 30th anniversary drawing winner was Larry Franke.


Jerry Landreth gave an abbreviated but very powerful recap of Jim Mihalich Wrap Report on

the May 4th Rolling Wheels trip to Pontiac.  There were 10 vehicles with 20 Cruisers.  Jerry did take us thru a nice subdivision in Bloomington on the way there (that might not have been the preferred route).  However, he did not report (until it was brought up) that he ran out of gas on the way home.  If you have not made a road trip you really should as they are very well organized and a very nice time is had, thanks to Jim and his committee. 


Mike Hall reported the Pawnee Car Show is June 8.  The club will be assisting Mike with putting on the show.  He also reported the Governor would like to have a car event on Governors day at the fair.  More information later.


We need volunteers to help at our Cruise Ins.  Let John C. know if you are wanting to help.


John C. reported that we have several new sponsors for 2019, being Service Masters Restore. Vernís Auto, Phoenix Collision, Golden Corral, Bedrock Farms and Phil Novak.  Thanks All.
