CAR COUNCIL MEETING FOR APRIL 27, 2022
Present at the meeting were: Robert Gold-Wheels of Gold Corvairs; Joe Ballengee-ABQ Model Car Club; William Lemen-Lincoln Owners Club; Jim , Joyce, Will Clements-Tumbleweed Ford V8 Club, Old Car Club; Ron & Su Rymarz-Old Car Club, Rt. 66 Cars & History; John Doran (JD)-Rio Grande Mustangs; David Huntoon-Corvairs of New Mexico; Steve Kranz-Tin Lizzies Model T Club; Dan Pyzel-Poco Quatros Model A Club; Vikki Ridgley-Rte 66 VW Club; Perry Key-NM Automobile Artists.
Our Council meeting for the month of April was held at the office of yours truly. The Military Museum was apparently the beneficiary of a huge assortment of military and assorted civic-related materials. It is rumored that this also included a box of George Bush (43) ballots from Dona Ana county. So much for your hanging Chad. Not sure how long the sorting project will be going on, but if you’d like to help the Museum, please reach out to them directly, or contact Joyce, and she’ll get you in touch with the right folks; [they are requesting volunteers to help sort]. That being said. . . .
Our President made the best of the situation and kicked off the meeting right at 7:00. Making our way around the room, with our somewhat limited attendance, introductions were brief. Having dispensed with the requisite housekeeping issues we quickly got down to the main topic of the night. Obviously, the thrust of the meeting centered around our upcoming car show. By the time you read this the car show will have already transpired. I won’t kill the full report in next month’s minutes, but I will tell you it was a complete success. Coming out of our Covid nightmare it was good to see everyone out and about. IMHO 86ing the trophies may have actually been a boon to the day. It certainly added to the efficiency at the gate, and we didn’t need nearly the staff at the front. The counting room scenario with the green shade bunch was also averted. Think we also may have broken a record on intake, helping the much depleted coffers. Again I digress. Look for the article in next month’s newsletter.
Speaking of other successful events Su Rymarz gave us a recap on the Cruise and Schmoose held the Sunday before our meeting. It too sounds like it was quite the event. That event has grown over the years, and is another fun venue for seeing a bunch of great cars, and just jawboning the day away with a lot of good car folks.
There are several sets of activities lined out for the summer car season. Check your newsletter for the latest dope on the car happenings in the city of the Duke, as well as surrounding state events. While she was discussing the Cruise, Su also gave us an update on their search, and discussions as it pertains to the swap meet. Planning is still underway. But I’ll put it in all caps for emphasis: WE NEED VOLUNTEERS. This event will not happen without good people stepping up to the plate to pitch in. I know I sound like a telethon. But sadly these events don’t run themselves. Please get with Ron or Su and let them know if you can give the meet some of your time.
[After some discussion on the Council trailer and BBQ grill, a group was appointed to clean out and inventory the Council trailer to see if we would keep it. Also, the group decided, after some problems with cars and coffee events, to close the Council facebook account.]
Well, enough nagging from your Secretary. Seeing that we had covered all the bases, Robert, after a mo and vo told us to get out of there. Having been there all day I can tell you I happily complied.
See you next month. Your Sec Bill
SEPTEMBER SWAP MEET
Ron & Su Rymarz have located a spot in Los Lunas. The owner of the property is very willing to allow us to use the area. VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED! Ron and Su will continue with the plan, provided that enough volunteers step up now. In order to use the area, about 50 volunteers will be needed, each to put in 3 hours or so. No one will have to be on duty for every day of the meet, but volunteers will be needed mostly on Thursday, September 22 to measure and mark spaces and put up signs, on Friday afternoon to help register vendors, direct traffic and park vendors; and on Saturday morning early to direct traffic and park vendors. Equipment and supplies will be provided, but man and woman power is needed. Other jobs will need help throughout the meet. If you can put in a little time on one or more of the jobs, please e-mail email@example.com, the sooner, the better; so far, we are about halfway there. Plans will proceed as soon as enough people volunteer to help. Otherwise, no swap meet.
RECAP OF THE MAY 15 CAR SHOW
The show had 301 paid entries. This was really good, considering our advertising was mostly word of mouth. The final City official signed his permit the Wednesday before the show.
A cool morning turned into a hot afternoon, so shade and cold water were quite popular.
There was a nice display of art work inside the Museum, and the Model Car Club showed a very large array of their creations. Thank you to Paul McLaughlin, Perry Key, Rich Hansel and Joe Ballengee for putting those shows together and spending the day supervising and answering questions.
Outside, it seemed the big vehicle owners seemed happy to be out showing off their prides and joys, getting reacquainted with friends and fellow enthusiasts, and getting lots of bright sunshine.
We had a lot of volunteers helping to take money, park vehicles, work at registration, supervise the lot, fill the water coolers and answer questions. Thank you to the clubs who sent some wonderful volunteers. The Old Car Club, the Dukes Car Club, the VMCCA, the Corvairs of NM, the GTO Club, the Wheels of Gold Corvairs, the Drifters, the VW Club, the Route 66 Rodders were all out there helping for sure. If I missed anyone, thank you too. The Museum was very pleased with the show, and we got plenty of compliments from that direction for putting on such a great event. And we could not have had a show at all without the great cars, trucks, and motorcycles that filled the lot. Thank you for coming.
Due to the uncertainty of guaranteeing there would be a show, there were no trophies. The entrants said they didn’t mind. The organizers enjoyed the relaxed, non-competitive atmosphere of the show. It was also a lot less work for us. The entrants didn’t have to vote, and they could just enjoy looking at the nice vehicles on display. It may be a good idea to have a “For Fun Only” show in the future.
Several people have asked about where the money collected from Council events goes, so here’s the list. We do not charge dues to the Clubs to maintain their memberships. Yearly, we buy liability insurance, pay a non-profit corporation fee, pay rent for a place to have meetings, sponsor Collector Car Appreciation Day, sponsor the All Clubs Picnic, maintain a web site, publish a newsletter, pay a PO Box fee, rent a safe deposit box for important papers, and keep a balance in the bank to provide out-front money to get the events started. It is fortunate that we had a balance for the last two years, as we had no income. No person is paid a salary for any jobs done; all work is accomplished by our wonderful volunteers. Remember to do your part and help out. All our helpers are truly appreciated and deserve a big round of applause.

DONUT DERELICTS – ALBUQUERQUE
The Owners of Plaza North would like to see the Saturday AM car meet continue but with strict guidelines. The Plaza owners will be at entrances to the event to control access and have roped off a designated "Allowable Parking Area" and there will be APD on the scene to help enforce the rules. Only customers of the businesses will be allowed to park in the parking zone restricted for businesses. Those entering will be advised of the "rules governing the event" and be required to sign a document of agreement to the rules. Upon signing the agreement, the participant will need to secure 2 sponsors from those already approved to participate, and then obtain a placard for attendance to future events. If there are any vio-lations to the rules, the placard will be revoked, and the violator asked to leave and not return. Some of the expectations are as follows: 1) NO DEMONSTRATIONS OF SPEED AT THE EVENT OR ON ADJACENT ROADWAYS. 2) All participants will conduct themselves in a proper manner. 3) No other unauthorized tactics will be allowed. 4) The plaza owners do not want this event publicized on Facebook.
