There were 9 Cushman members in the parade led by long time member Barton Burgoon in his 49 Cushman Golfster complete with two sets of antique golf clubs. Others included: Don and Judy Henry, Ted Grisham, Wayne Grigry, Ray Powers, Jack Hadlock, new member Steven Fife from Lubbock and me (Don Paige).
After a barbecue lunch at Sharon”s I led 5 of us on a 65 mile ride out in the country followed by Don Henry in the chase truck. Riders were: myself, Ted Grisham, Steven Fife, Wayne Grigry and Ray Powers.
No problems developed at either event. And no rain!
The Board of Directors made several decisions on August 27, 2020.
A letter will be mailed on September 8 to all members. This is to inform you of the State Meet cancellation and the three motions passed.
A general election was scheduled to be held at the State Meet. With no meet, the serving officers were asked to continue serving for the next year. President Richard Kesselus has served 2 years as president. He agreed to continue as president. Larry Freeze will remain as Vice President. The 3 Board of Directors who were scheduled to rotate off were Raymond Love, James Press, and Frank Turbeville. They each accepted another year.
A freeze was placed on the dues. In a year when the only ride held was the Possum Kingdom ride in June, the Board decided you needed a “Do Over”. All memberships were “frozen” which means you will receive another year’s membership as a gift. ( Tommy Goode will accept donations to the club if you want to help recover the loss of funds.) If you have sent a check to ChrystiLove, it will be returned within this letter. The price of this gift and no state meet is there WILL NOT be a color magazine issued this fall. The next newsletter will be published in February 2021. There will be a Calendar of Events for 2021 included in that mailing. Then in July 2021, another newsletter will be published with the articles about the spring rides and the State Meet information.
The 2021 State meet will be held in Abilene on October 11-16, 2021. The motion made and passed increased the meet from 3 days to 6 days.
Be sure to watch your mail for this important letter. Contact Chrysti Love for a missing letter or an corrections.
