  • Presidents notes; PleasE read all of STUFF  Sometimes the news is spread, hid in strange places please read! 
  • Sorry Stuff is so late this month. I have a few things going on and for most of the month have been sick. 
  • A lot of things have happened since last month STUFF.
  •  Seems like it is all good news.  The car show season is winding down, hard to believe there are still shows coming up into November. That is really stretching the season.  
  • Upcoming club Events ;  
  • WE have been asked to provide rides to the Grand Marshals for the parade on Nov. 3rd. The VA contacted me and asked if we could provide rides for a dozen or so of the Veterans they have tapped as marshals. We will need a good representation to get everyone a seat that needs one. It is important, if you can come out please help us out. I have been promised we will towards the front. The order, subject to change for now is: the color guard, Coatesville band, grand marshals (us). The rest will follow. I have been told the vets REALLY enjoy riding in the classics. We will also be presenting the check from the September show at the review stand this year. 

  • We have our monthly meeting on Tuesday the 14th. Collection of checks for the Christmas party will be collected. We need a head count BY Nov. 17th. We all people tend to procrastinate, be nice if we got it all together at the meeting. We will be putting together a list for the Shady Maple breakfast and there will be election of officers. Show up or get elected to an office.

  •  On November 18th we will meet at Shady Maple at 8:45 to sit at 9:00. This is always a good time, everyone likes to eat! Please be ready to give me a headcount at the meeting. We need enough to qualify as a group and get the best seating.  

  •  We wrap up calendar year with our Christmas Banquet. Linda Cooke has done her usual great job and lined up this event. This is a good way to wrap up the year. A fun event, good food, good company. You do not need to play the game if you are not into it but we would love to have you come out. It does not matter if you have been active or not, you are part of the crew and we enjoy the company. Craft House is in their second year now and have gotten this down.  As mentioned before we need a head count by the 17th, not that far away. A good chance to break out that Christmas sweater guys and maybe give the ladies a chance to dress up if they please.  Hope to see you there.

Meeting at Hoss’s to go up at 11:00???   Check our facebook page… Bill Chuplis has been keeping up on everything coming up and posting  &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&  Editor’s comment: This will be the last full size “Stuff” I will be doing. There will be a reminder sent out next month of activities but not a newsletter.  I was asked and took the newsletter over from Mario in 2009. Back then it was a two, three, page flyer called The Bowtie.  Ray put out a couple of newsletters and then I picked up again a couple of years ago.  It may not seem like it but putting out a monthly newsletter does take time. Putting out a monthly newsletter, not a quarterly that is not filled with fluff or skimmed articles is a slow process. I have been told many times how much better other clubs do letters but those people do not know it is this size for reason- too big and it does not email well, especially if you have pictures.   Inputs have been next to impossible to get and responses nil. It is time for me and “Stuff” to move on.    GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG Only $15 a year for dues!!! Check around we are the bargain car club in southeast Pa.! You do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out our dues are really VERY reasonable, plus if you go the Christmas party you go for half price. Pay your 2018/Christmas Party dues now.  One check and pay for the party and your dues, smart thinking.  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Rumors, Gossip & News  Some repeat news and some new: · Al & Kathy gathered goods to take to Texas.

Plus Sue Capriotti Stanley keeps us informed on all the latest shows, weekend by weekend.  &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& Support the Troops Car Show: In case you were one of the very few that was not there the Support the Troops Car Show was a success. We had a tremendous turn out! AT one point we had to turn a couple of people away, our lot was filled. For a good idea check out the pictures Pat Purnell took on our face book Page. A lot of people kicked in the day of the show, nice to see so many of US out.  The weather, all the pre-show work, advertising and good reputation for shows paid off. We had a lot of help from Caln Village Shopping Center and their management on many levels. Without their help we would be just another show. I like to think for the size of our venue, club base, we put on a top-notch show. Much of our participants are return people just enjoy the quality of the show that is put together.  This is a copy of a letter sent to Charlie Ambrose on 9/26 from Bruce Cobb: Charlie,    Quick update:  Car Show had beautiful weather, and as a result, record attendance.  The car registrations to compete at the show rose to a record 134! We estimate over 268 car show competitors and 400++ visitors who attended to see the cars.  We were turning away cars repeatedly because we were at capacity. Check out web page and Facebook page for pictures. Tom and the Crusin Classics car club team did a fantastic job running the show, our best show since we began in 2010. The vendors present did well. Several restaurants had tables and had good results. There was no impact from the Coatesville Auto Race scheduled the same day. We will be presenting the money raised for the Coatesville VA at their event in late Oct or Nov. I would guess without totals yet from this event, that we are over $10,500 since 2010 to the VA. Money to a great cause and huge marketing for the Caln Village Center. Tom and I are discussing a possible small event around black show in the corner of the lot near sign. If we can pull it together, we will give you a heads up.   All good!!     Bruce Bruce Cobb UPS Store 3093 610-518-5010   Â Now let’s pray for dry weather for a spring show.  
  • For Sale: 1957 Chevy Bel Air Station Wagon – Coral & White, V8 – very nice car, most of you know it.

Call him and check what he has for sale.  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Free:  I know there are a lot of readers in our club. I put together a list of books I have read that are available. If you have some books this possibly is a service we can share with others in the club and our friends.  Check last month’s Stuff and contact me if you have any interest or have something to add to the “library”.  Â Thanks, ###################################################### Please Support our supporters and sponsors: The supporters we have are great.
