Meeting Minutes
Dean’s Steakhouse, Friday, November 9, 2012
Inclement weather prevented many members from having the opportunity to attend the meeting.  Six  individuals were in attendance.
President Wangler called the meeting to order at 7:07 PM.  President Wangle raked for a motion to approve the minutes for October.  JoAnn Wangler made a motion to approve the minutes and it was seconded by Bruce McCollom.  Motion carried. 
Bruce McCollom gave the Treasurer’s report and said the current balance was $4,575.93.  A motion was made by Julie Horter to accept the Treasurer’s report and it was seconded by Chuck Horter.  Motion carried. 
President Wangler said the he was looking into replenishing the club supply of “cuzzies” (insulated beverage holders).  He presented a quote from Shirt Shack with an estimated cost of $193 for 250 “cuzzies.”  This item will be voted on at the next meeting.
It was reported that the Secretary position and the Treasurer position were open and that nominations are being sought. Al Braun did volunteer for the treasurer position.
It was reported that Mike Lalonde has made arrangements for the Christmas dinner at the 7-Seas in Mandan.  Dinner cost is yet to be determined. 
Chuck and Julie Horter agreed to coordinate the silent auction at the Christmas party. 
Meeting adjourned.  8:00 PM. 
Silent Auction Items Needed!
The Christmas Party is fast approaching and quality items will be needed for the silent auction.  Last year’s auction was a huge success so let’s do our best to match this effort again this year.  Remember, the Christmas party is our major fund raising event and sets our budget for the coming year. 



CORVETTE HUMOR
Good Elephant
A rich guy was looking for excitement so he decided to put an ad in the newspaper. The ad said, "I will give $10,000 to any person that can make my elephant jump."
So the next day, people came from all over the world to try to get this elephant to jump. There were even hypnotists who tried, but no one could get that elephant to jump.
Then a guy drives up in a blue Corvette and said, "Are you the guy with the ad?" The rich guy replied yes. Then the guy asked, "Is that your elephant?" "Yes." The rich man replies. Then the
guy went back to his car.
He returned with a 2 by 4. He walked behind the elephant and hit the elephant right on his back side! That elephant jumped a good 8 feet in the air. The rich guy, amazed, handed him the $10,000. The guy then got in his Corvette and drove off.
The next week the rich guy decides to put another ad in the paper. The ad said, "I will give anyone $20,000 to make my elephant turn his head from side to side." The man had seen his elephant's head move up and down but never from side to side.
People come from all over the world to try to get this elephant to make his head turn from side to side. No one could do it. When everyone left, the same guy in the same Corvette drives up.
He walked up to the elephant and said, "Do you remember me?" The elephant nodded his head up and down. Then the man asked, "Do you want me to do it again?" The elephant then shook his head
from side to side frantically.

The October meeting of the Corvettes of Dakota Territory was called to order on the patio of the Comfort Inn in Deadwood, S. D. on October12, 2012.  There were 16 members in attendance. 

Mike Lalonde moved that the minutes of the September meeting be approved as posted.  The motion received a second by Al Braun.  Motion carried.

We did not have a Treasurer’s report available.

Pres. Wangler reported that he intends to get prices to re-order drink insulators as the current supply is nearly depleted.  Report to be provided during the November meeting.

Mike Lalonde volunteered to check with the Seven Seas regarding a suitable room for CDT Christmas Party.  He will also get some menu ideas for the club to consider. 

Members are asked to consider providing items for the silent auction which is held during the annual Christmas Party.  If there are members who have relationships with businesses or individuals who would be willing to provide an item, they are asked to move ahead with that effort.

President Wangler asked members to seriously think about volunteering for the office of Secretary.  This office has been held by Chuck and Julie Horter for several years.  CDT is an organization run by volunteers and it is important that members step up and volunteer as officers.  A nominations committee will be appointed at the November meeting. 

Al Braun announced that he would like to organize a “Res Run” during an upcoming Sunday.  The run would begin in Mandan, head south on Hwy. 1806, go on to Prairie Knights and Mobridge.  The trip home will be on Hwy. 1804.  The day will end with supper at Applebee’s.  Specific date is fluid, depending on weather.  Please check your
E-mail during the coming days for specifically which Sunday will be chosen. 

There were no other agenda items or announcements so Mike Lalonde moved to adjourn the meeting, seconded by R. Mehlhoff.  Motion carried. 

Next meeting is scheduled for November 9 at 7:00 P.M. at Dean’s Steak House on the strip.

CORVETTE HUMOR
More Really Bad Puns but this will be it
Three friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds.  Since everyone especially Corvette owners liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair.  He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close.  They ignored him.  So the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to “persuade” them to close.  Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he’d be back if they didn’t close up shop.  Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that?
Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.

Mahatma Gandhi, as most Corvette owners know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet.  He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath.  This made him…what? (Oh boy this is so bad)
A super callused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

And finally there was a guy who sent ten different puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh.  Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.

August 10, 2012
Dean’s Steakhouse, Mandan, ND
7:10 PM
19 People representing 10 memberships present.
President Val Wangler called the meeting to order and asked for approval of last month’s minutes. Al Braun made a motion to approve the minutes and it was seconded by Mike Neigum. Motion carried.
Bruce McCollom gave the Treasurer’s report. Beginning balance for the month was $5075.53 with an ending balance of $5075.74. Twenty one cents in interest was received in July and no expenses were paid.
President Wangler asked for a motion to approve the Treasurer’s report. Mike Gunsch moved for approval and the motion was seconded by Gary Stefanovsky. Motion carried.
Old Business:
President Wangler thanked Al & Jean Braun for the great July 14 picnic. He also reported that the Black Hills trip was a success. It was a consensus of those present that Chuck Horter should reserve the Deadwood Social Club for next year. Valarie Howard passed out copies of her pictures from the dinner to those present at the meeting.
The club picnic, scheduled for September 9 at Jaycee Park (Dinner @ 5 PM), was discussed. Several volunteers are needed to help set up at 4:30 PM. It was decided that the Wood House will again provide the main food, which will be Chicken, Pork Sandwiches, Potato Salad and Baked Beans (plastic ware included) at a cost to the club of $8 per person for an estimated 50 people. Mike & Vickie Gunsch will pick up the food (saving the club $3 per person).  Participants should bring a dish to share, their own beverage and lawn chairs.
Mary Scott & Gary Stefanovsky gave the report of the charitable giving subcommittee. It was recommended that a $500 donation be made to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. While the contribution will be made thru the United Way, they assure us that 100% of it will go to benefit the library. It was also recommended that a $500 donation be made to the ND National Guard Foundation with the check to be presented at the Kupper Military Appreciation Day. Bruce McCollom suggested that any club members wishing to make an individual donation do it jointly with CDT.  A motion to approve the report and make the donations was made by Gary Stefanovsky and seconded by Mary Neigum. Motion carried.
New Business:
Picnic at LaLonde’s tomorrow.
President Wangler asked Irene McCollom if she would chair the Christmas Party decorations subcommittee again.  Irene said she would unless someone else wanted to take over this year, several people indicated they would help Irene as they have in the past. Irene asked for a budget of $350 for decorations. Mary Neigum made a motion to approve a $350 decoration budget for the Christmas Party and it was seconded By JoAnn Wangler. Motion carried
I (Bruce McCollom) said that I am going to go ahead and have Jamie Wetsch make the following changes to the web site (these must be made in HTML): Delete pictures from the slide show of persons who are no longer members, replace the current “membership application” with the new one prepared by Mike Gunsch, and change the links to the forum. There will be a cost associated with this.
It was noted by Mike Neigum that Northwest Tire donated items for our Christmas Party silent auction. Mike plans to show for Northwest’s car show at Noon through 3 PM this Sunday August 12 and hopes some other CDT members can also bring their Corvettes.
President Val Wangler announced that Shelly Krebsbachs’s mother had passed away recently, our sympathy to Shelly and family. He also stated that his sister had passed away recently, our sympathy to Val and family.
I (Bruce McCollom) noted that it is my understanding that the club sends flowers or other appropriate memorial on the death of a member. This is a tradition of the club, but is not written or assigned to any specific officer. It was the consensus that this tradition should continue. Other ideas discussed were get well cards to hospitalized members and sympathy cards to members upon the death of a relative. The difficulty with these ideas is finding out about what happened in time and the logistics of getting the card sent, which would result in some being missed and even duplication.
Meeting adjourned at 7:52 PM.
Respectfully submitted, Bruce McCollom

Old Business:
The picnic at Al and Jean Braun’s is scheduled for 5:00 PM Saturday, July 14th.  Meat will be provided. Everyone is invited and encouraged to bring a potluck side dish, beverages and lawn chairs.
Mike Neigum reported that a route had been planned for the Spearfish rally which appeared to be impacted by minimum construction.  Maps of the proposed route were handed out.  Departure will be Thursday, July 19th 9:00 AM from the Seven Seas parking lot.  There is a possibility that the CDT caravan will be joined by the Minot and Jamestown clubs.
Gary Stefanovsky gave out information regarding events and tourist routes for the Black hills.  The Corvette Main Street Rally will take place Friday night the 20th.  Corvette merchandise and displays will take place at the Spearfish Holiday Inn and the Rally will be downtown.  Chuck Horter said that arrangements have been finalized for the dinner at the Deadwood Social Club for 6:30 Saturday night July 21.  Everyone attending the banquet should review the email outlining the menu selections and get their meal preference back to the Horters as soon as possible.
Anyone interested in playing golf in the Black Hills should contact Gary Stefanovsky.
Mary Neigum reported there was no update on the possible garage tour visit hosted by Dr. Scherer. 
President Wangler asked about food selection for the upcoming CDTpicnic scheduled for September.  There was consensus from the group that the meat selection again come from the Woodhouse (like last year, chicken and pulled pork). 
Gary Stefanovsky gave a report from the charitable giving subcommittee.  The committee recommended that consideration be given for a $500 contribution to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library and Back Pack Program for children and a $500 contribution to the Veteran’s Home in Lisbon with emphasis on social services.  Mike Neigum raised concerns that if the Imagination Library donation was run through the United Way Agency that there may not be a guarantee that any or all the money would go directly to that resource.  Chuck Horter said that earlier this year, the club approved a spending limit of $1,000 on donations excluding the BSC scholarship.  He said these two donations would expend all the available funds.  He noted that consideration was also being given to the ND National Guard Foundation and there had been discussion on giving this donation to the Guard during Kupper’s Military celebration weekend which is usually in August.  He said that Kupper is a primary sponsor of the club and that Bob Kupper would appreciate the support for this cause.  It was decided to table this discussion until next month’s meeting.  Individuals interested in providing input into the club’s consideration of donations should contact Jim & Mary Scott, Glenn & Mary Siewert or Gary & Val Stefanovsky. 
Meeting adjourned.

CORVETTE HUMOR
An old man and woman (not Corvette owners) were married for many years.  Whenever there wa a confrontation, yelling could be heard deep into the night.  The old man would shout, "When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!" 
Neighbors feared him.  The old man liked the fact that he was feared.  To everyone's relief he died of a heart attack when he was 98. 
His wife had a closed casket at the funeral.  After the burial, her neighbors concerned for her safety asked, "Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?"
His wife said, "Let him dig.  I had him buried upside down, and I know he won't ask for directions."

CORVETTE HUMOR
Yesterday, I was at the downtown post office. Now I was only in there for about 5 minutes and when I came out there was a cop writing a parking ticket.
So I went up to him and said, "Hey Dude how about giving a guy a break?"
He simply ignored me and continued writing the ticket.
So, I went off the deep end and called him a pencil necked Nazi.  He then glared at me and started writing another ticket for having bald tires. 
So, I called him a sorry excuse for a human being.  He then finished the second ticket and put it on the car with the first ticket and then he started to write a third ticket!
This went on for about 25 minutes...the more I abused and hurled insults at him, the more tickets he wrote...
But hey, I didn't care.  My Vette was parked around the corner...

Participation Incentive.
A participation incentive was approved to encourage and reward participation in club events.  Anytime a member and their significant other attends a club function their name will recorded and entered into a grandprize drawing at the end of the year.  This is a fun event and provides an opportunity to reward someone who makes CDT participation a priority!    
Annual Christmas Party a Huge Success!
Forty-eight people participated in the annual CDT Christmas party held at the Seven Seas.  The food was great and over $1,000 was raised during the silent auction.  A new record!  Games were played and festivities went into the late evening.  Special acknowledgement was given to Gerald Gregory who travelled all the way from Locust Grove, Oklahoma to attend the party.  Way to go Gerald!
The silent auction items were very upscale and included a round Corvette pub table donated by Paul & Evie Klemetson, a huge Detroit Chevy Billboard banner donated by Ross and Jan Haugeberg, great Corvette photos from Mike Lalonde and other fantastic items.  Thanks to everyone who donated items for the silent auction!  
Also, thank you to Irene McCollom for all her planning, decorating and hard work in making the Christmas Party venue such a classy event!  Simply put, you are awesome!!
Meeting Minutes:
Seven Seas
Saturday, January 14, 2012  7:30 PM
Past President Vickie Gunsch brought the meeting to order.  Bruce then asked that the past months meeting minutes be amended to reflect the fact that that an award for the president was approved by the membership but kept secret so as to keep it as a surprise for the outgoing president.  The recognition award was presented to Vickie Gunsch by Mary Scott. Bruce McCollom stated that he and Irene felt it appropriate to give awards to the past two presidents, Mike Neigum and Mike Lalonde for their past service.   Bruce and Irene personally funded these awards and presented one of them to Mike Neigum.  Mike Lalonde was not present and Bruce said that he would get the recognition award to him.  
Bruce McCollom gave the Treasurer's report and said that the current club balance was $5088.17.  He stated that we currently have 59 paid members.  
Old Business:
Ross Haugeberg gave an overview of the Corvette Fun Fest scheduled for September 13-16 in Effingham, IL.  He stated it was the largest Corvette rally in the country with over 10,000 Corvettes participating.  Effingham is approximately 1,000 miles from Bismarck and could be covered in a two day drive.  He said that Eau Claire, Wisconsin was about half way to the event and would be a good stopping place for the first leg of the trip. Registration is $25 per person.  The return trip portion of the trip could be flexible and people could travel individually or caravan.  Ross said that to make the planning feasible it would take a commitment of 5 or 6 cars.  A show of hands was requested for interest in the trip and approximately 8 couples expressed a possibility in participating.  Ross will continue to gather information for the trip and lay out the details.  Ross said that Corvette Clubs participating in the event are entitled to special privileges such as parking.  
The election of officers was overviewed from last months meeting.  Officers as elected are:
Val Wangler, President
Mary Scott, Vice President
Bruce McCollom, Treasurer
Vickie Gunsch, Trustee (past president)
Chuck & Julie Horter, Interim Secretary
Three names were drawn for the attendance awards of participating in club events.  The winners were Val Wangler, D. Stromberg, and Shelly Krebsbach.  The winners receive a free membership and a $20 cash reward.
Past President Gunsch recognized Earl Larson and Mike Koffler as original charter members of the Corvettes of Dakota Territory car club 35 years ago.  Earl thanked the club for inviting his wife Marlene and himself to the CDT Christmas party and said that it was obvious to him that the club was vibrant and healthy.
New Business:
It was announced that the BSC scholarship sponsored by the club was given to Jeff Wuitschick who by chance is a member of our club.  Individuals selected for the scholarship is determined by the faculty and administration at BSC.  Jeff expressed his appreciation for being selected for the scholarship.
Adjourn.
Secretary Position Open!  
No candidates surfaced in the recent election for the secretary position.  Chuck and Julie Horter will continue to perform the functions until a member surfaces with the expressed interest to take over the position. Anyone interested in taking on this fun position should contact Val Wangler.

Laugh Alone and the world thinks you're an idiot
Rehab is for quitters
Sometimes I wake up grumpy; Other times I let him sleep
All men are idiots, and I married their King

Work is for people who do not know how to fish
I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian
Women who seek to be equal to men lack ambition
When you do a good deed , get a receipt-in case heaven is like the IRS.
I owe, I owe, so off to work I go
