March 2012 Runabouts to Rockets



President Larry Reid's Message

If you have yet to complete and send your 2012 NAOC National Meet registration and make your hotel reservation, it’s time. Sharon and Paul Mang, meet sponsors, have organized and planned a super meet. Because this year’s meet is in the “heart land” of Oldsmobile, we can expect to see many participants. Your early reservations not only help Sharon and Paul guage how many attendees there will be but it also helps them in their financial planning. Our national meets have always been an exciting time to see Oldsmobiles, meet new people, and renew old friendships.

It’s spring now and time to get your car(s) out for the spring tune up. For me, it’s always been fun to hear the engine crank over for the first time and finally fire up. Before you do that, however, make sure that you put new gas in the tank and change the oil. Maybe it’s also time for new points and plugs. Give the old girl a shot in the arm. Cars have to think positive too and a little TLC never hurts anyone.
Our NAOC Ad Hoc committee has been working hard to analyze our club’s finances. They will be making their findings known at this year’s national meet board meeting. Judy Badgely, Phil Fischer, Bud Guyer, and Mike Cibulas, along with NAOC Vice President Jim Schultz, will be glad to accept any of your suggestions. For those that will be unable to attend the national meet, there findings will be reported in Runabouts to Rockets at a later date.

Over the winter many questions or requests for information have been addressed to me. I’ve routinely forwarded them directly on to the appropriate Model Year Advisor. These advisors are absolutely necessary to our club and do a real service to members and non-members alike. I think that I can speak for all of us when a very sincere thanks goes out to them for their efforts.

—Happy Oldsmobiling,
Larry (#5069)
