Bill asked Bob Douglas to report on the recent Packard club tour to northern California.  Bob said that it had been a great tour that included Eureka, Ferndale, the Redwoods, the California and Oregon coast and more.  He said that there were several CCCA members that were on the tour.  Bill is looking for photos of the tour.


Bill had Frankie Douglas report on the May 6th Ladies Tea event.  Frankie said that there were about twenty of our ladies that attended and had a wonderful time.  They felt very special being chauffeured to the tea house in such elegant cars and were already looking forward to repeating the event next year.

Rodger Eddy gave dates for five other interesting car event options in June and July that your secretary was too slow to get recorded with any degree of accuracy.


Newsletter Editorís Report:  Larry and Laura Schick requested photos and material for the summer edition of the Hood Release.  Bill Jabs suggested that members offer to write articles so that Larry and Laura do not have to do it all.

Roy Asbahr thanked Schickís for the superb job they did with the article on his í41 Cadillac.
