Golden Quill Award 2016

A message from our President:

Given out yearly by Old Cars Weekly to publications related to the old car hobby. Hundreds and possibly up to a thousand newsletters apply for recognition with only a handful receiving an award. Entrees consist of AACA, CCCA and marquee clubs and are judged by professional editors, book authors, etc. Criteria for newsletters is based on use of color / or black and white visuals, quality of writing, photographs, creativity, balance of articles (human interest, technical, historical, events, ads, classified, columns, etc). All bases for a quality newsletter are covered.
 
The Gas Buggy Gazette is once again recognized by many in the old car hobby to be one of the best. A successful newsletter can boost a regional club and raise pride of the membership. Congratulations to John Sayler and all the region members who contribute articles to make our newsletter a success.

WANTED Annual Picnic: Boat Captain & Skippers Mate

This message was recently sent out from GRAACA President Ron Green via e-mail to our club members. In hopes of generating more interest in this exciting opportunity at our Annual Picnic this year, we are re-posting it here!

Depending on the amount of interest from members wanting to take a short 30 minute cruise on the lake, I am looking for someone (or two) familiar with operating a 12 to 14 passenger pontoon boat. Tours would begin after dinner and depending on the number of people there could be 4 to 5 tours. Please email me if interested in helping Val and I out by being our captain(s) for the day. Boat tour sign up and cost will be via the registration insert in the next newsletter.
