October Minutes


Minutes of October 3, 2007 called to order at 7:00-dismissed at 7:37.


Arrive early to eat. Meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.

President Sayers was on another cross country trip-lucky guy! Our VP, Buzz Woods, officiated the meeting. He’s been getting some practice while Steve travels; perhaps he is interested … 2008 president??

Agenda for November will include results of the nominating committee, reports on Taylor’s Tavern, plans for our Christmas charity project, as well as the Toy Run to be Sunday- DEC.2ND.

It was great to see 31 members. Guests were welcomed: Martha & Bill Fargusson –they are from the Seattle area, however, remembered meeting John Norcio in Durango a few years ago. John Alameda was welcomed & John was at the Ride for Kids on Sunday in Woodland. Buster Haas brought his wife Carolyn to the meeting. Hope to see all of them participating in the future.

September minutes were approved as submitted. Robert Jordan made the 1st motion & second was made by Carol Jordan, et al.-ayes carried, thank you.

ADOPT A HIGHWAY: FRIDAY OCTOBER 19. Meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Nice-Lucerne cutoff. Hope to see at least 12 out there protecting our environment one small part at a time. On average we collect 14-16 bags of trash in our little stretch of road, it is a valuable community service.

RIDE FOR KIDS: We donated enough to be invited to the stage to share how we raised the money. The recycling idea boosted our coffers. Credit: Robert Jordan suggestion; with help from John Norcio, Margaret Reese, & Paul Breunig @ Hillside Honda all being locations where you can leave your bagged recyclables and they will turn them in for cash for the RFK account.

Pat Norcio spoke of setting up the BOB REESE MEMORIAL RUN at Robinson Rancheria next spring. We were all disappointed this spring with our host location and will not support their establishment again. Pat will be helping the ride chairperson as time nears. Possible dates of April 13 or 20 were mentioned; depending on spring weather. We’d like to have our ride early to get a good crowd but weather can be a deterrent. Last year we competed with many other rides!

TAYLOR’S TAVERN Saturday October 13. 12:00 noon till 4 p.m. only $10 Your contact person is Pam Paulsen. Lee and Pam own & operate Roger’s Glass in Lakeport. You may get pre-sale tickets, drop off raffle prizes, donations and/or offer to help! Call or stop by their shop at 1885 N. High St. Lakeport 263-4616. ROGERS GLASS donated printing costs for tickets & flyers. (Thank You) Participation last year was dismal. This funds our holiday charities. If you can’t attend you can help: drop off a few prizes, buy tickets for friends, neighbors, family (it isn’t a ride event) it’s a fun way to eat, drink and be social. The LAKE COUNTY DIAMONDS will provide music. Horseshoes & other games are available. When you choose prizes remember that there will NOT be a silent auction. MUST BE 21 TO ATTEND.

Nice door prizes that you need NOT be present to win:

3 night stay in Tahoe—donated by Roy Fields at ON THE WATERFORNT,

overnight @ Featherbed Railroad – donated by HILLSIDE HONDA, &

meat package valued at $250 donated by GOLDEN GATE MEAT Co.

THANK YOU LEE & PAM! There is a lot of work involved in events and if we don’t support these events they will wither and die. It’s like hosting a party and no one comes!


Taylor’s Tavern provides the food and gives proceeds of food sales to our clubs.

GWTA GOLDEN THRONE: January 13th. Chuck & Jimmie’s favorite FUN event. Call Jimmie 274-1557 or Chuck 275-3336 for info.

Lake County TOY RUN Sunday December 2. Assemble at Lakeport K-Mart –parade will leave promptly at 11:00 a.m. so arrive early enough to shop (mention your 10% discount for TOY RUN items) we will end at the Kelseyville Lions Club for food, music, fun.

Kudos to Chuck Gillingham for our TOY RUN flyer. Looks great! Now that he has invested in Printmaster will we have a one-man flyer committee? J

Woodland GWTA TOY RUN November 4 will be at Les Schwaab in Woodland. Due to problems in the past there will NOT be any type of bike parade. Take your donations & enjoy food, music and socializing. Ordinarily they have prizes that number 2 to 1 for ticket sales-good odds for winning neat stuff.

Buzz Woods won the 50/50 of $52.50

Our trusty treasurer reported: (accepted as submitted)

Ride for Kids account: $4640.24

Toy Run account: $1225.72

August, September and October birthdays and anniversaries went out in your minutes last month.

Anniversaries for the month of November are:

Paul & Barb Breunig Nov 5, & Happy Birthday to:

Willie Biggs Nov. 25, Buzz Woods Nov. 8, Jimmie Phillips Nov. 22,

I missed Pat Sayers August 23,sorry Pat.

Many of you would be great officers. Contact any committee member: volunteer! —don’t wait, you might miss your opportunity! Per CLRR bylaws the only requirement to hold office is to be a member in good standing for more than 6 months. Use the buddy system—Cy & Danny: how about pres and vice-prez. Ok: John Norcio and Robert Jordan or Maybe Chuck & Larry? ….you got the gist of it, right?? Ladies?? Carol Jordan for president with Pat Norcio as vice-president or the other way around! How about the 2 kindergarten teachers to keep us in line?? Pat Sayers and Carol Jordan? Come on you guys! These are good ideas! Committee members are: Barbara Breunig 263-9000 ~Bob Potter 279-2911~ Lynn Hollenback 263-7101~ Peggie Rombach 275-0300

Change is always good for the club. Invite new members. Take an office. Come to meetings or events. Don’t sit on the sidelines, step up! Be active (and if you can be loud you have a definite advantage). J

TAYLORS TAVERN in Redwood Valley on Saturday the 13th noon to 4.

Food, music and fun for only ten bucks!
