At 8:00 p.m. Seth Jones banged the gavel and called the meeting to order, as Jim Evans, who couldn't be here, asked Seth to conduct the proceedings - as opposed to Seth staging a coup (sans henchmen). No guests or new members were present.

MEMBERS SHOULD REMEMBER TO CHECK THE CMGC WEB SITE FOR DETAILS AND UPDATES TO OUR CLUB’S AND OTHER LBC’S ACTIVITIES
Seth gave a status update on the project car, which is now at Barney's. This past weekend eight or nine members showed up to help.
We are looking for a new location for the Natter 'N' Noggin. It must be within a mile or so of an interstate ramp, not to be too loud, and not to charge us for the room.
"Cowboy" said that an additive is needed for the new engine oil used with rebuilt (pushrod) engines. The new oils have a prefix SL or SM. Some additive is needed to protect the cam lobes, since zinc has been removed from the oil. A discussion among club members followed. We may have a speaker on this at a later date.
Jim Evans kindly provided a list of countrywide car museums that was available at the front table.
Library - nothing new, per Wilbur
Driveline - editor needed
Membership - 258 members, per Victor (which includes 20 new members so far this year).
At 8:55 the meeting ended and 50/50 raffle tickets were sold.
The winner of the 50/50 raffle (who also happened to draw the winning ticket) was Amy Mehaffey - for a paltry $8.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:10.
