NEXT MEETING
Our next regular meeting will be Wednesday, April 15 at the Zancanella office in Glenwood at 7 p.m. Hope to see you there.

NEXT FRIDAY NIGHT CRUISE NIGHTS
Our next Friday night get together will be Friday, April 17 at the Silt Cafe at 6 p.m.

Then our next Friday night get together will be May 1, 2015 at the Charcoal Burger in Glenwood at 6 p.m.. Hopefully the weather will be nice so we can bring out the cars. If the weather is not good we will move to the Route 6 Grillhouse next door.

All of our Friday nights will take place at the Charcoal Burger from here on out. I do not have the exact date that Bart is starting the summer cruise schedule but it should be in mid-May some time.

NEXT SUNDAY MORNING BREAKFAST
Our next breakfast will be on April 12 at the Elk Creek Mining Co. in New Castle at 10:00 a.m.

OUR CAR SHOW UPDATE
JULY 24 and 25
We have gotten several more new sponsors for the show this year. We have done the preliminary art work for the flyers and hope to have them printed before the Moab show. All seems to be going smoothly, as we have done this before. It is falling into place well. Please remember to tell all of your friends about our show. We are also having a vintage snowmobile show as well with separate awards given for snowmobiles. We should also have several large semi trucks in the show from the American Antique Truck Society. As always all cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc are welcome.

We will have the cruise night at the Charcoal Burger the night before the show with food for all.

As we get into the season we will need help from the members as usual I will let you know what is needed as we get closer.

MOAB CAR SHOW
The annual Moab Aprilaction Car Show is scheduled for April 24-26. If you are interested in going to the show or staying in Moab for the show you need to make reservation right away as rooms are going fast.

For those of you going to Moab, Dawn Ogren is going to set up dinner on the hill after the show. By now you should have gotten an email from Dawn outlining the dinner at the Hill. Please remember to RSVP her as soon as you know if you will be going so she can make the proper arrangements. We want to thank her for setting this up. It worked well last year and hopefully it will again this year.

Several of us are planning to cruise to Moab on Thursday, April 23. If you would like to join in, we are meeting for breakfast at the Silt Cafe in Silt at 10:00 a.m. We are planning to meet up with some others when we get to Fruita around 12:30 p.m. We will meet at the gas station where Starvin Arvins is located, on the southwest corner of the intersection of I-70 and the Fruita exit. Please let me know if you are planning to meet us so we do not leave you behind. Call me or email me, my phone is 970-945-1008.

WELCOME NEW MEMBERS
We want to welcome Gary and Maryann Lebo to the club. They are from Gypsum and own a 1969 AMX. We hope they are able to participate in our activities throughout the year.

We have had a lot of interest shown from people who want to join our club. Hopefully some of these people will decide to join and I can welcome them in the next newsletter.

I am again trying to send the car show schedule in a separate email, this time I will be sure to actually attach a copy to the email.

If you know of any other shows, and I am sure there are many more out there, please let me know so I can include them in our list.

It is time to get the cars out and limber them up for a great season.

GLENWOOD VAUDEVILLE CLUB NIGHT
We had a great turnout at Vaudeville this past Saturday night. As always, the show was great and I hope all who attended enjoyed themselves. Thanks to all who participated. It made the night a great success.

We did decide to try to set up a better time for the picture of the cars in front of the mural. Hopefully late spring or summer. I will let you know when we get a solid date. This should give more cars a chance to get into the picture as well.

NEXT FRIDAY NIGHT CRUISE NIGHTS
Our next Friday night get-together will be Friday, March 6. We will meet at the Route 6 Grillhouse in Glenwood. As usual we will meet at 6 p.m.

Our next get-together in April will be April 3 and we will meet at the Route 6 Grillhouse in Glenwood at 6 p.m.

NEXT SUNDAY MORNING BREAKFAST CRUISE TO GRAND JUNCTION TO MEET WITH ROGER BISHOP
On March 15, 2015 we will be meeting with one of our original members Roger Bishop. Roger was instrumental in the success of the club. Many of you know or have met him at various events. He had to move to Junction for health reasons and has not been able to join us in our local events. It will be great to get together with him.

We will meet Roger at the Village Inn on Horizon Drive at 9 a.m.

If you will be traveling from Glenwood or the eastern side we will meet at the Route 6 Grillhouse parking lot at 7:30 a.m. And will drive as a group to Junction. If you live west, we will pick you up as we go. Please call me and let me know if you will be going and where you want to join in. If the weather is good it would be great for us to drive the old cars. It will be the first cruise of the year.

DUES
I want to thank all of you who have continued with us this year. I hope you will find the time enjoyable and fun. It is because of the members that this club can exist and be successful. We have had several inquiries by potential new members as well lately so by the next newsletter I may have new members to introduce.

MOAB CAR SHOW
The annual Moab Aprilaction Car Show is scheduled for April 24-26.

If you are interested in going to the show or staying in Moab for the show you need to make reservation right away as rooms are going fast.

For those of you going to Moab, Dawn Ogren is going to set up dinner on the hill after the show. I will have more information in the next newsletter but wanted you to know about this as soon as possible so you could begin planning your time there.

OUR CAR SHOW
It is time to begin to think about our upcoming show in Glenwood. We have already gotten several of the major sponsors on board, and also some new ones with new interests. Any of you who know of a local business who might want to sponsor our show, please get with them soon as we need to know who the sponsors are going to be within the next two to three weeks in order to assure they get into the flyer, poster, and on the tshirts.

The dates are July 24 and 25 and we are going to have a Friday night BBQ at the Charcoal Burger. The show will again be at the Glenwood Springs High School. 

Harry is organizing a group of antique snowmobiles to be on display as well this year so that should add a new dimension to the show.

Even though there is still snow flying in many places, it will be car show season before you know it. In this newsletter I am including the initial listing of shows I know about.

If any of you know of other shows that are coming up early in the season please let me know as I am now compiling the 2015 schedule of shows and events.

If the weather is going to cooperate please think about bringing the cars for the pictures. I will get you a time for the pictures as we get closer to the date.

Also, we already have 10 confirmed so when you know if you are going to go please let me know so I can count you in. We need to have a head count 48 hours before the show.
