OCTOBER MEETING
We had our annual BOD elections at the October meeting. "T" Hayes and Butch Stock both accepted their nominations and were re-elected to the BOD. We also had the drawing for next years dash plaque.
Tom & Josette Sullivan are the lucky winners and will have their car on the new dash plaque.

We would also like to welcome back Scott Warburton to BASMA.

CHRISTMAS PARTY
Annual Christmas party is just around the corner. See the attached flyer for all the information. If you are interested in helping set up, clean up, donate a door prize or have an idea for a game or activity for the party, please let us know. Mark your calendar for Saturday December 9th to spread and enjoy some Christmas cheer.

PREZ SAYS
It's true what Dorothy said, "There's no place like home".
Don and I went to 10 states stopping for something in each one.
We had a great time, even rode a steamboat/paddle boat (we can't agree which) down the Tennessee River, but it is nice to be home again.
I did try to keep in touch by Facebook while we were gone, but if I missed anything important, please let me know. Well another cruising season has come to an end. We had a pretty eventful and busy year.
The Halloween cruise at Fox's Pizza was a real blast (I know the kids had a great time!) Don is already busy planning next year's schedule.
It looks like we will be returning to Family Tradition, Fox's Pizza and Debbie Lee's next year and maybe a few surprises thrown in.
Thanks to all who worked with us this year: our DJs Jan Smith and Lisa Minteer; our "equipment manager" and general all around guy who was wherever and whoever we needed him, Bill Errera; the second half of our 50/50 team, Jack McConnell; and of course our fearless (?) leader, Don Hayes. Thanks also to all the members who came out and supported the club at the cruises. While planning for next year, the question always comes up, what can we do better? For those of you who go to all the other cruises, but do not come to ours, is there a reason? Is there something we are doing wrong? You need to let us know, so that we can work on that. Also, do you like our door prize system? Would you like to see some changes and, if so, what changes would you like to see? Is there other venues you would like to see us at? Where? Let us know these things, as final planning actually goes into effect in January, so that our dates our listed and we can hopefully
avoid a lot of conflicts. Hope you cruisers all have a great winter and we will see you again in the spring. That is for cruisin' of course. Two BIG reminders. The Christmas Party is December 9, see this newsletter for details. We always have a lot of fun. Any ideas for entertainment, make sure you let Paulette Bowen, chairperson, know. Final count to the caterer is the Thursday (Dec 7) before the party, so get your reservations in. Secondly, WE ARE MOVING!! Same place, same time, just another night. Beginning in January, we will be meeting on the
SECOND MONDAY of each month, and except for January, the Board of Directors will be meeting on the first Monday of the months scheduled for those meetings. First meeting of January, 2018 will be Wednesday, January 8th, so mark your calendars!! I personally want to thank all of you for your support and words of encouragement this last year. It means a lot to know that you think that I'm doing well and not screwing up too much.
Well, that's all for now. T. Hayes
