Monthly Meeting Minutes
BATOC Annual Board Meeting




Believe it or not, I don’t have a lot to say this month. It’s been pretty quiet in the Thunderbirding world and as usual, I have been swamped with work and projects. I mistakenly thought that slowing down was part of my future…but NO…….
I do want to thank Nick for a very pleasant outing to Rosie the Riveter last weekend. It was very low key, pleasant and relaxing.
I also want to thank Guy & Mary and Don & Lisa Perry and crew for our upcoming Holiday events in November and December. If you have not joined the festivities yet, open this newsletter, read the event flyers and RSVP immediately. We’ve made both events more user friendly with earlier times and larger venues and we have added fun, festive activities to both events.
Friendsgiving – November 19th – Cattleman’s Steak House – Livermore.
Holiday Party – December 16th – Crow Canyon Country Club – San Ramon
To keep the cost down as best we can, the club is subsidizing both events to some extent, and we hope that everyone will jump in and celebrate the holidays. Please RSVP appropriately as soon as you can.
I also want to take a moment to thank all those who jumped in and took on events for next year. Lots of new people raised their hands and proposed some really great trips – including myself and I guess I better get started on it. But watch for these events coming to a calendar near you and plan on imbibing.
Speaking of Calendars. Don’t forget to order your 2024 BATOC calendar. They are hot off the presses, ready to ship and more beautiful than ever. You need at least two of these for your house (garage and kitchen) and one for each of your relatives as Christmas presents. Go to the BATOC website and “Get ‘er Done”.
With all that said, see you all soon and feel free to share your thoughts – good or bad.
