Editor's Notebook - Oct 2007

THE ANNUAL MEETING ON SEPTEMBER 13TH FOUND the 31 members in attendance in favor of retaining the current CTCC leadership. The lone exception involves our Treasurer, Doug Rogers, who is relocating to the Pacific, Northwest to commence his new employment. Bob Hoge has volunteered to take over the duties of the office. I am certain that I speak for the membership in wishing Doug our very best in his new pursuits, with THANKS for a job well done!

The feature story for this issue October issue takes us "on-the-road" in Bob LaBine's 1928 Ford Model A Speedster as it encounters the myriad trials and tribulations of the Great Race! Bob will compete in the 2008 recreation of the original Great Race - New York to Paris - that was staged in 1908.

Having received a number of comments/congratulations on the Bird-News GOLD Award, it was the April 2007 issue that I submitted for the CTCI newsletter competition.

An interesting testimonial on the use of Jet Turbine Oil in a T-Bird is one our our editorial features. Thanks to Bill Werth for supplying the story, which dates back several years. We hope to publish additional information on this perplexing problem (zinc reduction in common motor oils) in future issues.

The CTCC Calendar confirms the onset of Fall, as only two (2) driving events remain: The Annual CTCC Fall Tour (October 5-7) and the SPECIAL "added attraction" event, a one day trip to Wisconsin on Sunday, October 14th. Bob and Helen Hoge have designed the Wisconsin tour to be a salute to the colorful Fall foliage that should be evident in the Lake Geneva area by mid-October. The schedule is posted, and sign-up today! It is a "one-tank full" scenic driving-tour.
