Follow-up to the June 24th meeting

This reporter would like to report on an observation that was seen visibly at the meeting site. I was made aware to be on the look-out for something special when I arrived at the Roelke’s homestead, and I must say, I wasn’t disappointed. The something special I’m referring to is the reincarnation of an old blue F-1. This truck has found it’s "lid" again and has been reworked into a very nice looking ride. You need to talk with Dave Farmer on how this metamorphose came about.

And speaking about Dave, you should ask him or Travis Beuthin about the cruise they went on after the meeting broke-up. You won’t believe what I heard….

I also heard about one of our truckers out turkey huntin’ on his way home from the meeting. Be sure to ask Mike Sonn about his encounter with a "northwoods peacock".

July 23rd Meeting Information

This meeting is being held at Soerens Ford in Brookfield, WI, the site of the Wisconsin Super ‘60s Ford Club show.

The folks of the Wisconsin Super ‘60s Club are requesting that we bring as many Effies as possible and will reserve us space to display our trucks and hold our meeting. To have your truck on the "show grounds", you’ll need to pay the registration fee of $8, if you haven’t registered already. If you wish to have your truck judged in the class of "Truck/van 1951 – present", you’ll need to be at Soerens Ford by 11:00AM.

The show is free to the viewing public and you can park your truck or vehicle outside of the show grounds for free, if you wish. Food and pop are available, as well as toilet facilities. A DJ spins records and has prizes for trivia questions answered correctly. It’s a lot of fun, so plan on attending.

If the weather is inclement on meeting day, we’ll hold the meeting at the Kulinski house in Waukesha. See map >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


PLEASE NOTE: Whether the meeting is Soerens Ford or at the Kulinski home, please bring your own chairs and beverages. Food will be available at Soerens Ford or we’ll order pizza if the meeting is held at the Kulinski home due to inclement weather.
