Good evening and hope you are all doing well as we head towards this holiday season. Joe Rose asked me to remind you members who haven't paid your 2015 dues to contact Wayne Sottoway our Treasurer and make arrangements to bring your self up to date. Dues are still only $10 dollars per year and if you have a $20 dollar bill Wayne can credit you for your 2016 dues.
Bill O'Connor is our new membership, telephone, and contact person so he will be calling to remind us of our upcoming chapter activities.
For those of you who are familiar with the San Juan Mountain chapter Harold Pepin has been named President of that chapter again. By the way their September truck show has 97 entries.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, November 21, 2015 and we will have a breakfast meeting at the Murphy's Mule Barn Restaurant on N. 2nd St. just above Alameda starting at 8:30 AM. After breakfast we will have a talk about bulk fuel tanker trucks. Our speaker will be Ricky Wright from Groendyke Transportation, Steve from Atlas Tankers, and Dave Perovich.
After our tanker discussion we will head up the road to Henry Pacheco’s yard where we will once again put on our popular “Slow Gear Race”. So bring out all your trucks and we will see who has the slowest truck in town and take this coveted trophy home.
Whether you know it or not ATHS is now a truly international worldwide club after some of our members travel down to Australia to visit with our Australian members and attend some of their truck shows including the National Transport Hall of Fame Reunion that you're about 1000 trucks. You can read the whole story in the latest issue of Wheels of Time.
We have just learned that our bid to host our ATHS National Convention and Truck show in 2019 has been turned down. Don Bretthauer, our Executive Director was pretty impressed with our New Mexico Fairgrounds where we had hoped to hold the show. What Don and the rest of the ATH S staff wasn't impressed with was $200,000 bill per week that the fair grounds wanted to charge us to use the facility.
My publisher and I are happy to report that my Bronco book of selling really well and I will have copies to sell an autograph at our next meeting. Cost per book is $28.
This is it for now and I shall bring this newsletter to a closing hope to see you at our next meeting.
