South Orange County Rods and Customs Monthly Meeting    
Club meeting September 12, 2019

President’s Report 
Denny opened the meeting at 6:10 PM. There were 47 members in attendance. 
He thanked all who helped out on this event, the last barbecue of the summer. Helpers including Bob Wright, Jim Boka, Doc McKeown and Mike Stoner. 
Denny sent out condolences to Bob and Carroll Whaler on the loss of their son. 
He also thanked Mike and Nancy Rockwood‘s daughter for the beautiful flowers for Ben Buchanan. 

Treasurer’s Report 
Jim Boka gave his report. After paying for the flowers and barbecue in the park there is $$$$ in the kitty. The silent auction was very disappointing, collecting only $80. This auction used to be a big moneymaker and bringing funds into our club. 
Birthdays of September 
Denny Katovsich, Debbie Asturias, Willi Stinson, Jim Perez, Lynn Houchin, Sheri Donoho, Dan Copp and Andrew Weiner. Rob Stinson brought the birthday list as Willi had a bad ankle. Happy birthday to all our members. 

Trophy Hounds
Dick Bennett won a trophy at Big Bear. Mike Poppe won a trophy at the Enderle car show and Don Bierce won a best convertible at the Labor Day cruise show. 

The Paddle
Dick Bennett currently has the paddle. It was meant to go to Rich Thompson. We voted on this issue. It was a definite yes. Denny will take the paddle to Rich at the breakfast get together. 

New Business
The venue has been changed for Saturday morning breakfast to a different location. The new venue is the Sunrise Café in San Clemente. 
This would have been the second meeting for our new club member Jay Smith. He was in unable to attend. Dale Hatfield introduced Bob Cowan a potential new member to our club. Bob has ’32 pickup, a Ford truck and a Durante highboy.
