Condolences

Please keep KARC member Les Lawson’s family in your prayers, as Pam’s mother has passed away.

 

Christmas Party

Dick provided the following information, pertaining to the December Christmas Party. Please respond per Dick’s request, below:

Our Christmas party is scheduled for Friday December 11, 5:30-8:00 in the press room at the downtown Food City. This room has an outside entrance.

Only club members, guests and Food City employees will be in the room. As of now masks are required as is social distancing, with no more than six to a large table. Tables are spaced 6 feet apart.

The menu is: Turkey with dressing with 2 sides, dessert and beverage. This will cost approximately $16.00.

Due to the facts that there is limited seating and we must pay for the number we say will be attending (whether they show up or not) we MUST HAVE an accurate count.

Please let me know by phone (423-323-7777) or e-mail (rdcartwright@embarqmail.com) by November 20 if you will or will not be attending. We also need to know if you are bringing a guest.

 

Thanks

Dick

 

November Meeting

It was the consensus of opinion, at the October gathering, that future gatherings should be held at Golden Corral. They are expecting us to be there Nov.12. They will put us in the area behind the ice cream machine. 

 

Member Machines and Gossip

(Thanks to Dick for the following)

 

The powerglide in Kathy Vicars' Chevy II stopped shifting into high. Sid found the culprit, a broken vacuum modulator, now the old deuce is working well.

 

After several trouble-free miles, the serpentine belt on Perry Stapleton's Chevy II started shredding and turning inside out. Perry has replaced a tensioner/idler pulley. So far, so good.

 

Gary Price is in the final stages of preparing to move to his new garage, and home.

 

Don Hughes has put the old interior back in his '39 Chevrolet so he can make sure it is a keeper before getting a new one. So far he is happy.

 

David Baker bought a ’75 Chevy long bed pickup with 454.
