July 2015

Greetings All!

The July meeting of the Keystone Kruisers was held on July 2, 2015 at Cabin Green Golf Club. In case you were unable to attend, here is a brief synopsis of same:

Our cruise is this Sunday. July 12, 2015. It officially runs from 4:00 PM to 8:00PM, but we are asking all members to help out and arrive about 2:00PM. We will also meet at the WWFVFD on Saturday, July 11 at 6:00PM to clear the lot.

  • The President reported that all seems to be falling into place regarding the cruise. There are still KK business cards and window stickers available. See me for above items.
  • The Vice President reported that there are many local cruises going on. See the website for complete details. There are also KK license plates for the front of your car still available. See Bill for same. Just a few notes regarding local cruises: An All GM car show will be held on July 18, 2015 in Latrobe, Kalmar's cruise (Leechburg) will be on July 23rd, and the Camp Sherwin (YMCA) cruise has been rescheduled to Sunday, August 16th.
  • The Secretary reported that we have 36 sponsors for this years cruise. If you are out and about and need flyers to pass out, see Russ.
  • The Treasurer reported that we have $3,860.00 in the bank. Our insurance has been paid for the year, and this is our balance. Sherry will have the registration packets ready for the cruise.
  • Rich Anderson says that the 2015 cruise T- shirts are in! See him for yours or be there at the Fire Hall on Saturday night and get it (them) then. You'll need it for Sunday! Door prizes are coming along nicely, but we can always use more. The baskets for the Chinese auction, however, are a concern. WE NEED MORE! If you can, or know someone who can, please consider donating another basket for the auction.
  • Bobbi Jensen says that the AACA club is sponsoring a "See the Local Dams" cruise on Sunday, July 19th.( and no, I won't comment any further!) See or call her for further details.
  • Karen Claypoole had a hip replacement and is doing well. Keep her in your prayers, please.

    Everyone, please try to attend the cruise and help out. Even if you didn't sign up for a specific detail, come on down! We can always use you. This is our club. This is our cruise. Let's strive to make it the best around. See ya at the Cruise!!!

    The next meeting will be held on Thursday, August 6, 2015 at Cabin Green Golf Club. Six to eat, seven to meet!

    Till then, stay safe.

    And about the Cruse!

    July 2015

    Greetings All!

    First off, I wish to thank everybody that helped out at the cruise yesterday. You people, and your efforts, make us "one of the premier events in the area".

    This is not me talking, but an overheard comment from one of the cruisers at yesterdays event! Can't beat that!!!

    Some info regarding our cruise held on Sunday 7/12/2015:

    According to the count from the registration table, we had 184 cars come through the front gate. Not too bad, considering the rain!

    There were 2 entries for the student trophy. One, however, departed prior to the awarding of the trophy. The winner was Zach GRAHAM, a 15 year old sophomore from Karns City High School. Zach lives at 308 E. Slippery Rock Street, PO BOX 187, Chicora, PA and has a 1972 GMC pickup that he is working on.

    Larry and Jackie RUPP raffled off their football signed by Steeler great Franco HARRIS. Ticket sales yielded a $114.00 profit. Thanks a million, Larry and Jackie!!!

    The Wayfairer Award was presented to Dennis and Joy WEBBER, of 11992 Main Street, East Springfield, PA According to Map Quest, they traveled 116.25 miles to attend our show in their 1995 Mustang GT convertible!

    The WWFVFD made over $1,150.00 by selling food to the hungry cruisers! GREAT! The firemen want us back next year! (and why not!!!) The dates suggested were July 10 and July 17, 2016. These are the Sundays closest to this year's cruise date. We shall vote on next year's date at August's meeting, as the Firemen want to reserve the date we need.

    The 50/50 raffle awarded a prize of $356.50 to Larry SNOW, of 122 Community Park Road, Vandergrift, PA. Larry drives a 1993 Pontiac Firebird coupe.

    The $500.00 winner was Judy HEATHCOTE, of 114 Hampton Court, Butler, PA Judy drives a 1965 Chevrolet Impala convertible.

    Our next meeting shall be held on Thursday, August 6, 2015 at Cabin Green. 6 to eat, 7 to meet! We will discuss the Club Picnic, next year's cruise date, and other points of vital information!

    Be there or be square!

    Later Gator!
