Due to the Fire at Danny’s place, we held our monthly meeting at the Ft Douglas Museum.

Offers were made to see what, if anything, we could do to help Danny (because of the Fire).

There was an update on the web page. It was reported that we are having some challenges getting follow though on requests to fix problems, update information, etc. The challenges are being addressed.

The club is still looking for member support on working with Ft Douglas in restoring the WWII Ambulance. Get with Bill Abbott if you can help.

We had several members attend the MVPA National Convention in Portland. It was noted that there wasn’t very many military vehicles on display for a National Convention, but overall, everything went well.

Jack Tomlin updated on the Wendover Air Show, September 20th. He will be sending several vehicles to the show. If you can participate, please get with Jack.

The annual club BBQ- Swap Meet and Potluck will be held at Jack’s Place in Tooele, October 18th at 11 am (1180 W Utah Ave). Cost for members is free, and family members can purchase a meal for $20.

Bruce Morgan gave an update on the Veterans Day Observance Parade being held in Odgen on November 8th at 11 am. He briefed that the rally point will be at 3100 Washington Blvd. Contact Bruce for details.

The MVPA National Convoy is still schedule to spend the night at Murray Park. Club members are being asked to provide security and assist members of the convoy with getting around the valley while they are here. More information to come as the convoy dates get closer.

Also, It was noted that to officially participate in the Convoy, you must be a member of the MVPA and a $100 registration fee will need to be submitted. See Mike for details.

There was several discussions about different car shows being held in the local area. We will try to update the web site so members can have a quick reference on where/when/who/etc. if they want to participate.

Several members have not paid dues for the last few years and we have had no contact with them. It was voted that they would be removed from the membership roster. If they re-contact the club and are interested in updating their membership, we would place them back on the roster immediately.

The next meeting is scheduled for Sept 25 at Fort Douglas Museum.
