Meeting called to order by Pres Jackie.  All officers present.  31 members in attendance.

Jackie thanked Jim & Joanie Flowers for inviting the club to tour his garage on Saturday, Jan 18th, and attending the 5:30pm dinner afterwards at Flyers Brewery in Oak Harbor.

The club was reminded of Brenda’s Social on Feb 9th and that the particulars were emailed to all members from Deanna.

A reminder to mark your calendar:  Annual Cruzers Summer Round-A-Voo* will be on Saturday, July 11th starting at noon.  Same place as 2019, Skyline Property Owners Beach Cabana, 5919 Cabana Way, Anacortes.  Watch for separate emails for updates!

Vice Pres Jeff informed the club that he intends to generate a Projection Calendar which will list all the upcoming Cruzer activities monthly.  For the month of March there will be a Poker run that will start at Island Pizza on March 21st.  There will be more information forthcoming on the particulars for this event. The idea is to have one Thursday a month dedicated to a Cruzer event.  Activities being considered are a Car show at the Whidbey Golf Club, attending the movie “Ford vs Ferrari”, Pizza at Ciao’s in Coupeville, Oak Harbor Car Show (Aug 8 & 9th) at City Beach.

Kathy provided our bank statement: Beginning Balance – $5,637.32, Intake – $63.00, Exhaust – $181.91, and our Ending Balance – $5,518.71.

Duane reported the club currently has 104 members and we have new business cards which he passed out to give to prospective new members.  He also has a revised Cruzer application form to be used for new members.

Lana provided Sunshine notes: Sent cards to Mary Benninghoff and Brenda Ackley as they were not feeling good. Also sent a card to Molly McIntosh who broke her leg. Sent a card to Dan Dillard who is home with a medical issue. Ed Hammond is recuperating from his last treatment. Carrie Harris has been dealing with asthma since December and will undergo sinus surgery when she has recovered from pneumonia. Mike Harris had skin cancer surgery and now has shingles.

Ron informed the members about HB2373 which affects those members with collector cars.  This Bill currently in Olympia changes the licensing to every 5 years.

UPDATE:  Per Senator Ron Muzzall, this Bill, HB2373, which was in committee, did not make it out before the deadline on Feb 7th and therefore is a dead issue.

UPDATE: Bill Morrow was involved in a spin out in his Ranger on Hiway 20 near Anacortes on Feb 6th when he hit a pool of water on the road.  Bill required EMT assistance for his injuries and is ok except for bumps and bruises.  It was a frightening experience and his pick up was totaled.

Don Bierce won the 50/50 raffle along with duties of handling the raffle at next meeting.

Next meeting, March 3, at Oak Harbor VFW
