Hotel - Make your reservations now before all the good rooms have been reserved. Make sure you request to be in the Badgerland area if you wish to be in the back "cove" area. Copa Cabana management has stated we can reserve specific rooms if we know which one we want. (See lay-out of room locations located elsewhere in this newsletter). Call the Copa Cabana at 800-364-2672 and be sure to mention the Badgerland F-100s show, September 15th-16th.

Food - Nothing new to report at this time.

Dash - con’t.

Mark Leonhard checked into purchasing a new Nesco. He is unable to get a good deal at this time. We will wait until we know for sure how many we will need for the show before purchasing one at this time.

Volunteers - Mike reported that we still need someone to head up the van. Please contact Mike if you are interested in this. Otherwise things are looking pretty good. Mike will make a Volunteer spread sheet which will be in the newsletter. Please look it over and sign up for anything you will be able to help with.

Kid's Games - nothing to report at this time.

It was brought up that since we are not having a model contest that we could up the budget for kid's games. A motion was made by Mike Connor and seconded by Floyd Johnson to up the kid's games budget from $75.00 to $100.00. The motion passed unopposed.

Friday Cruise - If anyone is interested in planning a cruise for Friday please let Mike Connor know.

Dash Plaques - Dash plaques would run $1.25 a piece and $ 1.00 for thank-you's. A motion was made by Mark Favor and seconded by Bob Kulinski to have 150 dash plaques made up. Motion carried unopposed. They will check on number for thank-you's before making that decision.

Club Shirts - Mike Connor brought a catalogue he received from Dave Farmer. Badgerland shirts were discussed and will be brought up again at another meeting.


It was brought to the attention of Todd Shower's that more than $100.00 was spent with the consent of the President, but not by vote of the club members. $400.00 was spent for printing, supplies and postage for flyers and beg letters for the show. They needed to be printed before the meeting so they could be taken to area shows. Mike Connor and Todd Showers would like to apologize for this oversight. A discussion was held by the members present and a suggestion was made to amend the By-Laws.

The current By-Law states(Article IV, Section H): President shall be authorized to approve expenditures not to exceed $100.00 for special expenditures, without the vote of the membership. The proposed amendment would read: Any show expense over $100.00 must be approved by the President and the majority of the club officers prior to payment. Motion was made by Todd Showers and seconded by Jeff Burnett to accept the amendment. Motion carried. A second vote will be taken at the next meeting.



The Treasurer mentioned this will be the last newsletter sent to members who haven’t paid their Club dues for 2000. Also Todd would like to update the Advertiser's annual fee. Please contact Todd Showers if you have any information on this.



New Business -

We received a thank-you from Second Harvest Food Bank. We donated 62 lbs. of food and $10.00. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

Mike Connor brought information on the Hot Rod Power Club. It offers clubs guides, coupons, rebates, etc. Mike Sonn will have the information if anyone is interested.

The next meeting will be June 24th at Randy and Diane Roelke's.

Motion to close meeting was made by Dale Barrette and seconded by Rita Johnson. The meeting adjourned at 2:50 PM.
