Buckshot Elliott made a trip to the hospital due to a tiny piece of finger that was unknowingly stuck in his hand. His finger tripled in size. Hopefully the pain has gone and Buckshot is feeling better. Incidentally, Buckshot’s nurse in the hospital was named Diana Harris…..small world.

On Saturday, June 23, several KARC members made the trip to Pineville Kentucky for the Bell County Car Show, hosted by our friend Bill Partain. In attendance were Frank Carr, Buckshot Elliott, Daris Hartsock, Don Hughes, Bill Hurd, Jack Johnson, Maynard Ketron, Les Lawson, Bruce Roberts, Mike Smith, Harry Soard, Perry Stapleton, Gerald Walters, and Mark Warner. Several won $25 Wal Mart gift cards, and a few won $50 drawings. Saw some unusual vehicles at the show including a Mack Truck pickup and a Toyota MR2 converted into a 3 wheeler. On the way back, most of us stopped at the Hob Nob Drive-In for early supper or ice cream. Perry announced at the show that he is cutting back on sweets (while eating cotton candy), so he only ate one banana split.
Several member stopped by the cabin to wish Rayford and Jan Dingus a happy 25th anniversary.
In the May meeting, Dewayne Bowen, Rayford Dingus and Sid Vicars were presented Lifetime Member plaques. Apologies for the following picture not making the June newsletter.
Fall Cruise to Wheels Through Time
At last month’s meeting, several members indicated they would be interested in club cruise over to Maggie Valley to Wheels Through Time Museum. I (Gary Price) contacted Wheels Through Time and determined the museum will be open every Saturday in October and there are no bike shows planned at the Maggie Valley show grounds on the 20th or 27th. Please discuss if either of those dates would be good, or if another date would be more preferable. I will call back to see if Dale or his son will be there to help guide the tour.
