                a.  Ideas and volunteers for new events or runs


                Dave Engle wants to see if anyone would be interested in checking on the Western Railroad Museum in Portola.  Would be an overnight run from Portola to Feather River Canyon.  A little on the pricey side $1,500.00 to drive the train.  If anyone is interested he will check out details and maybe cost could be divided among 3 to 4 couples. 


                Rick Samoian is going to check out the tours for the Reform School in Ione – was thinking about making it a lunch run. 


                Pete & Ann Ruff just returned from a 12 day cruise to the Mediterranean – started in Venice and ended up in Paris – had a chance to check Istanbul, the Greek Islands and Italy.


                Dick & Barbara Collier just returned from an extensive trip to England and Ireland.  Beautiful country and checked out ’79 Corvette.
