APRIL MEETING Meeting was called to order by president T Hayes at 7:30. Tom Sanderson is back in the hospital with heart failure. Keep
Tom in your prayers. Our own Butch Stock has finally retired from AK Steel. Enjoy your retirement Butch, you have earned it. The pledge of allegiance was given by all present. 21 members attended the April
meeting. In old business, minutes were read by Dave Bowen for the March meeting. Accepted by Dewy Hughes and second by Jack McConnell. Treasurer's report was read by Dave Harkins. Accepted by Glenn Koegler and second by Al Worsley. After the May meeting the club will address flyers for the 4th of July car show. Don't forget, we need help. In new business, Joyce Master was in Allegheny General for a mini stroke. She is at home now recovering. Get well soon Joyce. Butch Stock is collecting dues from members, Joe Mudrick still needs orders for clothing to have enough to get an order in. See Joe if you would like anything. T needs help for the 4th of July for door prizes and Chinese auction items. Sorry to say there will be no BASMA sponsored cruises this year. No one has come forward to help with cruises, so please no feedback on this situation. Gas raffle tickets should be ready for the next meeting. We received an e-mail from club member Rick McClean, the Syria Shriners motor corps is having their annual car show on Sunday August 18th at the Shriners Center in Cheswick. $10 entry fee. Contact Jerry Robison for information. 724-283-9635. Debbie Lee's cruises will be the 2nd and 4th Thursday from May through September. Butch Rocco talked about the flyers he brought for some local cruises and swap meets. Butch also gave some free admission tickets for the Canfield swap meet. Thanks a lot Butch! On Thursday September 5th, we will pull the gas card tickets at the Lyndora American Legion Cruise
.
Tom Napierkowski and his wife Nadene talked about the upcoming
Big Butler Parts A Rama. There will be some new events this year including the ultimate truck pull, burn out contest, car coral and auction, and car show. The event is June 14th, 15th, 16th, Fathers Day weekend. Tom and Nadene donated 5 free spots for club members at the
Parts A Rama. These spots will be drawn at the May meeting.
A speaker for a future meeting, Nathan Chesler of Cage Rage Fabrication, his shop does chassis and roll cage fabrication, suspension and more.
No meeting date set.
50/50 was $30 won by lucky Bill Errera. Meeting was adjourned at 8:02


Spring has sprung. Well, that's what the calendar says, but there are robins and snow in my yard. No wonder I am confused! Things are falling in line with the 4th of July car show. Fairground Market has agreed to do the food again. Spread the word. We will be having the Chinese auction again. I could sure use some help there. If you know of a business that would like to donate something or if you would like to donate something please let me know. It is very time consuming to go around to all these places by myself once to drop off letter and the second time to pick up auction item. I would be greatly appreciative if anyone could help me out with this. I believe that Jan Smith will be the DJ again. So we are working on it. Anyone who has ideas for the show or wants to help, please contact a BOD member. I am working on making that Monday night trip to the meeting worth your time and effort by lining up some speakers. This month Tom Napierkowski will be at the meeting. Tom is the new owner of what was known previously as Parts A Rama. The event will now be called the Big Butler Parts A Rama and he will be talking to us about what will be going on this year. In May we will not have a speaker, but will be addressing flyers for the Car Show but we may have a speaker in June, we are still working on that. Finally, as the kids today say, WHATEVER. As no one has come forward to host one, three or all of the cruises, it looks like BASMA will not be having any regular cruises this year. Please feel free to not complain about this, as the BOD has done all it can do and if no one wants to step up, then that is that. Well, that's all I have to say.
T. Hayes, President.
