Christmas Party Committee-No report other than to repeat the info from October about last day to pay is Dec. 1st. There will be the usual $100 for decorations, door prizes, etc. There was not much interest in having entertainment other than the gift exchange.
National Council of Corvette Clubs (NCCC) Phil Rankin showed the website by projecting it on the wall. Discussion followed about the benefits of the club having the insurance, types of events, and the National Point System. A suggestion was made that club dues to go toward membership with the club paying any difference. This was tabled until the December meeting. A meeting will be called for a committee to research the NCCC Bylaws compared to our club bylaws to see if there are any conflicts, etc.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIRST CORVETTE—Ken Wise first corvette was a 1973. He bought it new in ’73. He was an Air Force recruiter at the time and said he had to arm wrestle the dealer because the dealer had another buyer for $1000 more. He said he told the dealer there would be a lot of bad publicity if he didn’t get it. His 2nd one was an ’84.
Jeff Bruggeman showed the carved 50th Anniversary wall hangings he has for sale like the ones he had seen on the Rankins wall. He has two available for $60 each. This is a bargain since the Rankins bought theirs at the National Museum 50th Anniversary event for over $90.
Carol Lankford has chances for sale for a 4 x 8 playhouse $1 ea. Or 6/$5 these will benefit Neosho Habitat for Humanity
