Well its 36 days away. I just talked with Ron & Lee Hietman, the show producers, last night. The space we requested is approved and he has received all of our entry forms. I need to explain a little bit how Autorama and ISCA works. Ron collects all the entry forms and payments for ISCA prior to the show. After the show is over, he hands over all of the checks and cash he received for ISCA entries. ISCA does not cash the check until about 30 days after the show is over. This is not a problem, I just wanted you to know why your checks are not getting cashed right away. Some of you paid me by cash. Since I did not want to send cash through the mail, I deposited the money and had my Credit Union and wrote a check for that amount. Unfortunately my credit union put a note on the check that it had to be cashed within 30 days. The Hietmans were very understanding and Mrs. Hietman told me she is sending me the check back so I can give them a new one the day of the show. I am telling you this because you should receive a letter from Autorama in a few weeks, Don't panic if it says "not paid" I'll take care of it the day of the show.
Your saying to yourself, whatever Mark - Just tell me when and what I need to do....
Since all of you did not attend the last club meeting I will give you a run down on the display and cars. I do not have the exact times for everything yet.

Friday - I turn the display over to President Ed and his board of directors so we can promote our club.
