The expenses relating to the Vermont Spring Tour are basically paid; however, the annual Club insurance bill is due in the next month. It will be $811.00. Also there will be expenses related to Founders Day on August 7, 2005. Jerry believes the funds in hand are sufficient for the remainder of this year’s events.

Scheduling and Events

There was an in depth review of the coming Club events led by President Ron Swenson. Due to the fact that the events are displayed on the Club website, that they are publicized by e-mail and that there are a significant number of events they will not be reviewed separately in these notes. Please refer to the schedule of events on the Club website and the customary e-mail channel.

Travel Kit

Bill Collins suggested re-organizing the travel kit along the lines of A, B and C cars. He arrived at this suggestion as a result of his recent trip to Banff, Canada and he volunteered to do this. The Board approved.


Jerry Tulis and Jim O’Hare reviewed their findings on the Club insurance policy. The Club policy is through J.C.Whitney and Company. The Board believes that it is adequate; however, it was suggested that the Board Members consult their own agents concerning personal umbrella policies. Jerry also reviewed several other policies specifically covering car clubs but, in his opinion, the coverage wasn’t as inclusive as our current policy.

New Business

  1. The two year term of the President, Vice President and Secretary is up this January. Len Cannizzaro is Chairman of the Nominating Committee. Anyone interested in nominating somebody for one of the positions should contact Len at lencan@rcn.com.

The August Board Meeting will be held on August 2, 2005 at a place to be determined.

With no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:25 p.m.
Respectfully submitted,
Jim O’Hare, Secretary
