Miles is the chairman of the annual Lake Oswego classic
car and boat show. He reviewed the history of that
event and said that they wanted to feature full classic
cars next year. He is hoping we can participate
and field about twenty cars.
Bill requested that both Oregon CCCA and the Packard
club get recognition. Miles agreed that something
can be worked out. Miles also suggested that we
bring other unique cars to display that are not full
classics. The show is on August 25th.
There was much discussion about possibly of changing the
location of our monthly membership meetings.
Bill assigned the task of looking into options that were
discussed to Larry Schick, Bob Douglas and Howard
Freedman. He requested they report on their
findings at our next meeting.
Bill asked for input from board members on whether to
continue with tech sessions next year. The
discussion did not seem to generate a clear answer but
Howard suggested that Larry Cox repeat the ignition
system presentation that he gave last year. Larry
was agreeable and March 16th was selected for
Bill asked for input on tours for 2019 – how many, where
Howard suggested a one day garage tour to see the Bob
Ames collection. Bill thought that a one day tour
that visited two garages with lunch in between might be
feasible. A date of April 13th was
selected for our day tour.
For our overnight two day tour next year, it was decided
to visit interesting places in and around the Eugene

tour and the dates of May 4th and 5th

club. It headed east and north from Portland and
included Coeur d Lane, Idaho as one of the stops.
September 7th thru 15th was
selected for the fall tour. Sylvia Potter
suggested that we consider not having an organized
social hour every night and not to have one on nights
that we have a group dinner. All in attendance
For next years combined July membership meeting and BBQ,
Bill Price passed along a suggestion by Mona Marsh that
we consider the End of the Oregon Trail Park in Oregon
City. Roy Asbahr said that he has a friend that
works there so he (Roy) will check it out. July 11th
was selected for the membership BBQ meeting.
Bill Price also offered to lead a combined Or
CCCA/Packard Club backroads tour to the annual Jordan
Chicken Run in September next year on the 22nd.
Bill Jabs said that the monthly Brake Cables newsletter
would continue unchanged next year. He asked Larry
Schick to inform the group of any changes with the Hood
Release. Larry said that his daughter Laura would
not be continuing on as editor next year but he will
enlist his wife Pat to take her place.
Bill said that Mary has offered to set up Facebook and
Instagram accounts to improve our exposure and have more
