The Editor's Notebook- Jan. 2009

the editor's NOTEbook

A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO OUR CTCC MEMBERSHIP, WHEREVER YOU MAY LIVE! [We have members in AZ, IN, MO, NV, OH, PA, TN, VA and WI, as well as Illinois!]

A DUES reminder is included on page 10, so take time to mail your check. By doing so, you will ensure receiving your future issues of B-N.

While not complete, the 2009 CTCC Calendar is presented in tentative form - see page 2. Note the item on the January 16th event that appears on page 3. Also, note the corrected date for the Pizza Party/Meeting: Thursday, February 12th. CTCC provides the PIZZA!

With the New Year upon us, it is time for this column to extend a sincere note of appreciation to the countless members who have contributed stories, articles and photos to B-N during 2008! A special mention for Liz Werth who has submitted event photos and prepared layouts - such as the Holiday Party announcement that appeared on page 10 of the November 2008 issue.

Anticipating a milestone auction selling price for the "005" 1955 Thunderbird owned by the late George Watts, all eyes will be on the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale this month. The story of the "Number 1 Production T-Bird" is outlined on page 9. What will the No Reserve $$ be?

Sadly, 2008 marked the passing of Joan Mrozek and Bernice Kuxhause and CTC! member Lois Eminger. We also noted the untimely loss of Chuck Maddox III, a former member of CTCC.
