Hippie Don got a new assignment for
the car show and without getting that
done, there will be no show: porta
potties - four of them.
Decision was made to order 25 license
plate tags with club logo.
We received a third show entry.
Decision was made to make an
appointment to visit Dave Edmonds of
VW of Fort Myers as a group, present
our ideas for the upcoming car show,
inform him that at the auto show in
Miami the dealer donated to the local
car club $3,000. They were present at
the show with a large banner and a
multitude of cars. We will ask VW of
Fort Myers to come to our show with
their own display of several cars. It
will be a great opportunity for the
dealer to show their product and
obtain future customers. Robert will
make an appointment with Dave Edmonds.
The board members and Barbara all
worked as a well-oiled team to put the
stamps on the show flyers to be sent
to clubs. It was quite a show to see
all those fingers at work.
No further business was put on the
table. Tanya closed the meeting.
Minutes prepared by Lore.
March 3, 2002
We will contact Dave Edmonds, make an
appointment with him during the week
after 5PM, visit him as a group to
present our ideas for the upcoming
show and the involvement of VW of Fort
Myers. Some things for consideration
- VW Fort Myers to have their own
display, vehicles, sales personnel, at
the show. This will expose them to the
public and bring in future customers
to their dealership. It will help
promote the VW.
