Bylaws: a copy of bylaws has been sent out. Mike G encouraged group to read and review. This is 2 ½ years of revisions. Hope to pass the new bylaws by years end. If there are any concerns please send messages regarding changes or concerns so they can be addressed at the Board Meeting. An official announcement made to notify members of special meeting to be held at 7 pm on September 28th to vote on the bylaws. Lola B had questions regarding when new members had voting rights (upon joining). She also questioned need for Sgt of Arms as a viable board position.
Mike introduced Mike S, Jon P and Jason Arendt as a group that requested to make a presentation to the general membership. The group addressed the members in regards to their feelings on BHCC. Several thoughts they shared were whether to keep BHCC as is or make changes. The group shared a questionnaire asking members to rank 5 items on “why does SFCC host BHCC?”. The group asked members to consider whether it was time to re invent BHCC, scale it back, or how to evolve. Comments from group: MJ – question – where money for meetings would come from if BHCC not used as a fund raiser. Answer – decrease meetings, and rather do drive/dine events. Could also supplement from current savings acct for SFCC. Lola B – felt this was a premature discussion as have Kris Haase committed for leading BHCC to 50th. She questioned how having less meeting would keep continuing friendships and new members connected. Drive and dine are limited in attendees. She felt BHCC has transitioned through the years. Bill K – wants to keep it going definitely to 50 years. He felt the club is social group and without the meetings the club would dissolve. He felt the BHCC bonds the club. Chuck W – feels the BHCC is a blast. It is a good fund raiser. If cost is a concern for club it should consider different meeting location. Doc – suggested the club look at modifying events at BHCC to make it more
basic but should keep the event going. He felt this is a social club and meetings should be held monthly. Dave Rowe- reminded the club that the event is old for us but it is new for attendees. There have been many positive comments. He felt the entire club had a good attitude about the event this year – event was revitalized thanks to Kris H. He felt the event should be done for people who want to attend the event. Jim M – suggested considering raising club membership dues, especially if would limit # at BHCC as this would decrease income. Art N – agreed that this year had renewed energy. He wondered if the BHCC had too many events. He felt the event makes other people happy which makes members happy.
MJ made a motion to make Riddles honorary members due to their many donations to the club. Motion was seconded by Dusty Miller. Motion carried.
Kris H reported that a meeting was held with Spearfish in regards to BHCC. They felt they could offer 10 people to help with event next year. Holiday Inn did not receive any complaints from guests. Of surveys about 60% were returned. Surveys responses indicated not enough events offered. Consider working with Deadwood Lodge to see if there is an event for them to host. Kris would like to get businesses involved. Auto cross and drag races did hurt for volunteers. Mike and Connie need help with tours and Dusty and Kathy need help with merchandise.
Vice President:
Eric had lap top available for members to update their information. He also spoke about Fun Fest which is coming up in September. Eric did attend Crown Road Rally Race – Minneapolis to Chicago.
Events:

WWII FLIGHT MUSEUM TRIP

Come join the fun September 30th! Take a Corvette trip to the Fagen WWII Flight Museum in Granite Falls MN (30 min. north of Marshall). Re-live WWII history, including full-scale dioramas, many WWII machines and most of all, many WWII trainer and fighter airplanes in flying condition. The airplanes will be active if the weather is nice, and rides might be available in a PT26 WWII trainer ($125, but long rides). Some of the airplanes include two P40s, two P51 Mustangs, Japanese Zero, P38 (forked tail devil), B25, FM-2 Wildcat, and MORE! The museum is free, but a freewill donation is appreciated. (suggested $10)

Vehicles, Art Exhibits, Library, Airplanes-something for everyone.

It is a two hour 30min. drive. We should plan on leaving 8:30ish to get there for lunch, and the rest of the day at the museum at your pleasure. Lunch might be at the Golf Club, but I need a head count, so will determine the exact place as soon as I can, as well as firm up the departure place and time. We can have a guided tour, or go on our own. If you would like to see more, go to fagenfighterswwiimuseum.org  or google Fagen flight museum. Hope you will join us for the fun.

Please Rsvp me as soon as possible, at dpwalker67@gmail.com as they would like a head count.

JEFF GORDAN CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION

Mike –

I hope this email finds you well and all is great at the Sioux Falls Corvette Club!

I’m reaching out from Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation, a pediatric cancer non-profit located in Charlotte, NC. We are currently holding a raffle to win Jeff’s 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible 3LT with Z51 Performance Package! Throughout the years we are proud to say that we have raised millions of dollars to fund research and innovative programs to fight childhood cancer around the country and globally through the raffle.

I wanted to see if it would be possible to share our raffle with the Sioux Falls Corvette Club. Our raffle sells out every year, but we always want to make sure we are extending the raffle to new audiences to have the opportunity to win a great car and support an even better mission. Your club can learn more here:

http://www.jeffgordonchildrensfoundation.org/get-involved/win-jeffs-ride/

Additionally, if there is a family in your club that might be affected by pediatric cancer please let them know that the foundation or one of our partner organizations may be able to provide valuable resources. Please feel free to give anyone my contact info that might need it.

Let me know if I can provide additional information or answer any questions.

Thank you!
