Wally Santella provided some updates on the Tigers on the Columbia event. The club currently has 118 Active members. Our goal is to have 50% of our members attend. As of this meeting date, 39 cars are registered, with 18 of those being club members. We have 58 people signed up for the Friday car cruise and 18 for the Sunday dinner. Wally reminded us that the block of hotel rooms at the Coast Hotel for this event will be released to the public in early May (determined post-meeting to be May 5). Attendees will want to make reservations prior to this date to obtain the discounted rate. Bill Nelson reported that the Thursday cruise to the event will leave from the truck stop on I-90 at 10am, with a stop at Indian John rest area and then another stop in Cle Elum for lunch (location TBD). A third stop will be at the top of Blewitt Pass at The Rock House. Ted Knapp will be signing a contract for the Tigers on the Columbia event in Wenatchee for 2025, which can be cancelled with no penalty if we decide to change plans.
Ted Knapp reported that there is still a possibility of hosting the GTOAA National Convention in Spokane in 2026 and that the locating firm for GTOAA is exploring possible venues.
