1. The regular monthly meeting was called to order by President Roger Bourgeois with 17 members being welcomed. He was happy to report that we have passed our 100 member goal as a result of Speed Sport East registrations and the anticipated list from Lounsbury’s new sales.
2. There were errors in the minutes which were corrected (Roger and Angie Boudreau should have read Roger and Angie Bourgeois).  The corrected minutes were then accepted by the membership.
3. Old Business:
a) Speed Sport East was a great success.  Don MacAuley did an excellent job of organizing our event.  Many companies and individuals were thanked for their support (see attached list).  The Hot Wheels give away for kids was a hit with 300 being distributed.  This year’s judging was unfortunately weak; however, our cars won several plaques and awards.  Leonce Cormier won the $3,000 tool box from NAPA.
b) Atlantic Corvette meeting was held at Lounsbury’s this past Saturday. The minutes from that meeting have been published on our web site.  Please note the various events that have been planned by the provincial chapters.
4. Financial report was presented by the treasurer (see attached).  Current account is $Xxxxxx.
Payment of bills was approved.
