President’s Message

Our March meeting had a great turn-out, we had 26 individuals in attendance –We had our first “Ride & Dines” in April with the Zimmer’s taking the lead. Starting in Onalaska Menards and going over the hills on “S”, going through Wildcat Mountain State Park and ending up in Hillsboro Pub. I encourage everyone to host a ride and dine. The Fontanini’s will be scheduling the May “Ride & Dine” on Saturday May 19th. (More details to come from Dave)

We have the Brenengen’s Clinic/Tech Talk on Wednesday May 16th at 6 pm. in West Salem. (This will be in the old furniture building) The ladies luncheons are going great, May’s will be in Sparta and those who are going should meet at Woodman’s on May 16th at 11:00 to carpool.

I will be holding a meeting of a small group on Tuesday May 29th at 6:00 to discuss the Brenengen’s/ RCC car show in July 14th. I will have brats & burgers for those who would like to come (Please RSVP prior to May 24th so I know who is coming) We hope many of you will be there for support as we normally have 125 cars to take care of in Don’s parking lot.

Britton Slowey is the new director of the “The West Salem Boy’s & Girl’s club” will be at this meeting as well.

Keep your cars on the road and let’s have some fun now that the weather is getting warmer.

Governor’s Report - May 2018

Well, as you all know all too well. Spring has Sprung- we think. I have had my summer tires on for 3 weeks and some folks have put their snow blowers away. We even went on a Ride n Dine yesterday and I have to admit I took a steel car. While we normally say Rain rain go away and come again another day. I would like to see the April Showers rinse off salt and sand off the roads. It may be an old idea since newer cars aren’t as easily damaged by road chemicals but why take the chance.

But I am predicting June 9th will be sunny and warm. Our annual Rally date was moved to Saturday, June 9th when NCCC deemed our old date their Convention Date. With that I can say we are meeting at Schmidty's and we have some fun sections of roads and some tricky questions. So it should be a fun day with friendly competition with a side of a beautiful drive in the country.

So I hope you can come to the beautiful Coulee Region for leisurely drive through the bluffs. We are looking forward to having you.

Charlie Britten
RCC Governor
