Vickie’s Views
Well July’s cruise-in was a rainy day but
we still had a pretty good turn-out. Randy
sold $80.00 in 50/50 tickets and we
brought in $380.00 in membership money.
I sent out some reminder emails about
membership and got a good response! I
am very thankful that almost everyone I
emailed said yes they wanted to stay in
the club. Got a few that said they had sold
their cars and would not be coming back.
After talking to the manager at Golden
Corral about them giving the room to
someone else last month I am done with
them. She told me that they needed
the room for a seminar and it would
take about 2.5 hours, well I told her that
we come there once a month and she
shrugged her shoulders at me like so
what??? Well I guess the $750 or so we
spend there every month does not mean
a lot to them, so maybe someone else will
want our business. I will keep everyone up
to date on where we will meet. Well, I just
set up our first meeting at Aiken Brewing
Company. We will have our August 5th
meeting there, same as usual, we eat at 6
and meet at 7. Hope to see you there!!*
We still need prayers for some of our
friends in the club, please remember to
keep them in your prayers. Laura Collins,
Nancy Reigart, and Mike Hardin. They are
all battling this horrible disease we call
Cancer, I even hate to say the word. Please
keep these wonderful people in your
prayers. Also please keep Sheldon and
Gene in your prayers, they are also having
health issues and we pray all our friends
get better soon!!
The MTU family day was a lot of fun!
Looked at some very BIG engines, it
was very cool touring the plant. After
we looked at everything they fed us
very well. I really enjoyed our outing.
George from MTU said thanks for Aiken
Horsepower coming out to enjoy the
day with them, he said if we would have
not shown up they would not have had
to many cars to look at! So thanks gang
for showing up in your beautiful rides!!!
Keep on Rollin!!
Manny's Mania News from the "pit"
I am going to start working on the Pit again to have it sheet
rocked and more closed in so when we do have events it
will be much better. We bought the air conditioner for the
Pit which works great but it needs to be in a more closed in
area, so we will start soon on fixing that. We are also going
to buy a BIG fan for the Pit, it is just too hot in there to utilize
it as a clubhouse, the way it should be.
We have a special surprise coming up, stay tuned. We have
set a date for the club picnic, and once again it will be at
Jim Fuller’s mancave. I can’t wait until we get a bigger air
conditioner and finish the clubhouse so we can use it. But
we want to give a big thanks to Jim Fuller for the use of his
wonderful mancave. Once again it will be potluck, with the
club furnishing the meat. So, please let Vickie know if you
are going to be able to come and let her know what you
would like to bring so we get a good variety of food.
We will discuss a lot of the upcoming events at the club
meeting. Don’t forget we will be meeting at Aiken Brewing
Company on August 5th.
At the Labor Day BBQ cook-off and Aiken Horsepower
cruise-in they will give us an arm band for each car that
comes in with us. Only one per car, this year it does not
include ribs. They will charge $1.00 each for them. We will
enter Newberry Street from Richland Avenue. All cars must
be in by 10:30 am, the gates will be closed off after that.
Upcoming Events:
August 3:
Home Depot cruise-in, 6-8 pm
Club meeting at the Aiken Brewing Company, August 5:
eat at 6 pm, meet at 7 pm.
August 16: Cruise-in to Sno-Cap in North Augusta to help the United Way of Aiken County,
6-10 pm
August 24: Picnic at Jim Fuller’s Mancave, 3 pm-until
September 2: Labor Day Cook-off to support Aiken Dept. of Public Safety, 10 am-2 pm
So until next month, Burn rubber till next time,
The first and second
generations of Honda’s
winsome compact SUV came
with a standard flip-out picnic
table. For first gens, there was
also an optional shower kit for
the back, too. Nobody does
car features quite like Honda.
Want Ads
That’s right club members, in case you forgot – we are pleased to list your automotive associated ads in the
newsletter. Whether it be a “for sale: or “for want” just let me know in some sort of written form, and I will put
it in the very next newsletter. It will only run once (kinda like some cars I have owned) so if you want it to run
again you have to let me know each time. Another reminder – I don’t know what you have, what it’s called,
or what it is used for, so be sure that you include all the pertinent details, as to name, size, color, etc. and who
