July 2013 Runabouts to Rockets


It is always a rewarding experience to be a part of the NAOC National Meets. The many beautiful Oldsmobiles, the friendly and welcoming community of Oldsmobile owners, and, of course, another wonderful location, such as this year’s in Elmira, New York, the heart of the Finger Lakes. Many thanks to this year’s hosts, Dick and Sue White, for a wonderful meet. Runabouts to Rockets editor, Wendy Crosby, will soon be publishing pictures of the cars and the people who participated. Stay tuned.

It is deserving of mention that Wendy, has been recognized again for a “Golden Quill Award” for excellence in car club publications. Thanks, Wendy, from all of us who look forward each month to another excellent issue of our magazine.

At each national meet there are several awards that are presented by the club. But, beginning at last year’s meet, there has been a special award named The President’s Service Award. This award is given to a person or persons that have given unselfishly to the club and/or its members. The winner of the first award was Bill Ehrsam of Sylvania, Ohio.

This year there were two individuals that were recognized for their service to the club. First, Fred Deusch of North Providence, Rhode Island. Fred has been a long time NAOC member and contributor of many fine technical articles to Runabouts to Rockets. He has served on the NAOC Board of Directors, been the club’s vice-president, and also served as NAOC President. Secondly, a member who has helped raise considerable money over the years for the club. Her friendly face and warm smile have always encouraged us to buy “more” 50/50 raffle tickets. Also a long time member, we salute Penny Guyer of Garden Grove, California. Thanks to both of these loyal and hard working people who have helped bring success to the NAOC.
So with that, we sign off for another month.

—Happy Oldsmobiling,
Larry (#5069)
