Respectfully submitted by,
Dini Vigliano – Secretary
THIS AND THAT:
AACA Hershey Meet: It is with great pleasure that we acknowledge Dini for receiving her award at the event – a 1st Jr. for her Cabriolet “Howard”. Model “T” and Model “A” judging is so very competitive. The restoration was another job well done by Howard Kriebel.
Replacement Parts Alert: Al Schneider had Dave Whitmire assist with his brake job. It was found during the repairs that many of the “new” parts being reproduced seem to be of poor quality (out of tolerance). Thankfully Dave had additional spares in his van so the job could be completed. It is so fortunate that our club has so many members that share their talent and skills when assistance is required!
Rental Space Available: For up to 3 cars. Near Doylestown on a secure estate property (about a mile from where the White’s had lived). 24 hour access. Garage space while un-heated is very weather tight, clean, dry, with water and electric. Asking $100 each. Dick Longcoy 215 672-4988
Cutting It Close: Sunday November 2 – Riegelsville, PA "Fall Roll-Out Car Show" at the Riegelsville Ball Park, Route 611 south of Easton, PA. Show 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. Field opens at 8:00 am. Registration Day of Show $25.00.
Reminder: The Lansdale Annual Mardi Gras parade is being held Saturday November 22nd 2008 starting at 1:00 p.m. The theme will be “Picture Perfect Holidays”. As noted in the minutes, we have responded with an entry registration and have requested a 4th place position.
Web Site Update: On Tuesday Oct 28th Linda Kerper led the Roth’s and Longcoy’s thru a sample set up of our web site. It was hoped to be able to have members look up this November issue in the Crossroads section but we didn’t finalize the set-up in time. Keep looking.

FINDING YOUR MATE
You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip
coming. -- Alan, age 10
No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with. -- Kristen, age 10
