President's Message Continued


Just got back from three weeks in CA desert. 100⁰F+ during day, 40 at night - sparse to minimal phone signals.

Ranged from San Diego up the high desert TO Lake Tahoe and environs. Good trip with great friends. If you get a chance, don’t miss. RockX in/on the Rockies!

Now back to CBRG business at hand. I asked the shop Supervisors to have their input ready at the next meeting for integrating the many items donated by George Gikas’ estate. We’ll consolidate and re-arrange the shop as necessary to accommodate what we can and auction the leftovers at the picnic or earlier if storage is short.

Make sure you’ve marked 10 AM October 6 on your calendar - the RockSwap will happen at K.A.R.S. Park Picnic Area 2. There are about twenty five picnic tables available at $ 10 a full table, $ 5.00 a half. Club will have a selection of rough and slabs available. We will provide water; soda at a reasonable price.

The calendar has hit the target - membership for members is reduced to $25.00 for next year and the balance of this year. Nominations are being sought for next year’s officers - new officers breathe new life, new concepts and new activities into the club. Try it; it is habit forming.

Our snowbirds should start filtering in as the frost moves South. Temps on the Canadian border are approaching the forties. It will be nice to see friends returning to work with us. Don’t forget our RockSwap is Oct 6. The Orlando club has their show that same weekend and Melbourne comes up in November.

Nuff Said - Rock On!

2017 President
