Monthly Club Meeting: is held on the third Monday of each month (except no meeting in December). The meetings are from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. at

just West of Route 83 on Route 64 (North Avenue) in Elmhurst.


With winter keeping us deeply entrenched indoors, this would be a good time to get your 2015 commitments resolved.

  • Start with sending in your Membership dues this month if you haven’t already done so.
  • Contact Reinout Vogt and see what you can do to embellish the 2015 driving season.
  • Support your new slate of club officers by providing your ideas of what you would like to have the club accomplish this coming year. Maybe even helping out with one of the many staff support positions available.
    This month’s issue is uncommonly large for the off-season and therefore next month’s issue will focus on the Club awards distributed at the annual Holiday Party.
    See you on the road…
