    1. I totally agree, however there are options and always been. Yellow stands out and is the national approved color. A nice Brown would be nice. We have always allowed, black & or White as options in our chapter

  1. Would like to see the breakfast meeting we have at Mo’s on tues at 7am changed to 8AM.

    I agree with what was said at the meeting about the name of the club. Younger members are not going to want to be with a group of older members like us.

    I have been to a drifters breakfast meeting and most are younger than our age group. I think it is just a fact of life.

    Just like the people that like the cars from the 30s and 40s are and have passed on. But soon the 50s to 70s cars will also not be as desired as that group like us is getting older….

    1. Thanks David, I just added a Breakfast Meeting Poll, lets see if anyone else feels the same regarding the time.

    2. I don’t think they have passed on, I think tastes just come in cycles. There are a lot of sweet cars from the 30’s and 40’s but they can be pretty pricey, so that could make it tough for younger enthusiasts to get started. 50’s through 70’s were great years, so many very cool cars to choose from, in ALL price ranges. A younger driver can actually purchase one of these classics for a great price and own a piece of history and increase in value. The mass produced cars of today will do nothing but lose value.

  2. The conversation at our club had at our last meeting was all too familiar. The same conversation that is happening at church groups, VFWs, Rotary, etc. How do we attract younger people? What should we be doing? How come more do not take leadership roles? What is our purpose?
    During the many years that I was involved with church growth, my conclusion with many churches I consulted with was for them to accept the position they were in. Don’t beat yourselves up. I suggested that they do what they do really well. And just enjoy what you have until the time comes that you no longer serve the community you have chosen to be a part of and you shut down.
    I think our club offers a unique niche in the car club community. It was founded to be able to include wives, and provide a social and community setting for members. As I heard at our meeting, most other clubs are just a bunch of guys with cars that meet every now and then and go to car shows. We offer a deeper relationship with each other: cards to the sick, social events, mystery lunches, donations to vets, meetings with a meal, AND car shows every now and then. This is why Karin and I are a part.

    My suggestion is that we continue to do our best with what we have. Maybe we have to trim down events or what the club provides (clothing, a treasury, events person, etc.). Maybe we go to the other clubs, not as competition, but as a collaborative network of car clubs and offer to them an additional membership in our club for those who are looking for what we provide.

    I think the dues issue is minor. It’s nice to have a fund which supports our vets donations, supplements activities (Rod Run food, Xmas dinner, progressive dinner, etc.). I think most club members don’t mind paying dues when they know is supportive of our club.

    Recruiting new members is tough. When Karin and I first came it was pretty difficult to “get in”. Lots of clicks. We hung in and now feel a part of the group. We should remember that our club did have some younger members a couple of years ago. They were highly criticized (unjustly I believe) and ultimately left our club. Wanting new members and really “wanting and welcoming” new members is a difficult task.

    1. Read the comments and I totally agree with Craig and Glenn. We enjoy one another’s company and our vehicles. If someone is interested in our club,they are welcome.

    1. I would like to see if we can get more club cards to hand out to prospective members and each member would have a card to turn into President or membership person to follow up with each card given and personally once again contact the person with a personal invite to the meeting.
      I would also like the membership dues waived for each new member for the first year. Each new member would be able to join without paying dues the first year and not be required to attend 3 functions prior to joining. Lets get new members without any restrictions other than car requirements.
      At each car show lets make a concerted effort to invite younger members into the club. I for one have never done this and will get some cards and start inviting new members and have club follow-up with the prospective member or I can do so.(give me some input on these ideas please). Thanx all and lets continue to have this forum available to discuss any future ideas . Great idea to discuss prior to the monthly meeting for broader input from all those quiet members.

      1. I will design some general club cards and club cards that members are able to personalize. Watch for the samples in your email.

  3. Color of shirt, easy, take a vote. Membership is an on going problem that all groups face. You have to keep the interest high but simple. Support the folks who step up to the plate, they need a little pat on the back.
    We need those off the wall ideas every once in a while, just to get the juices flowing. Thank you to the folks, who have went above and beyond in there effort to keep the Club going.
