Our spring show will be here before we know it!  April 1st
Hey Members, put the date on your calendars!  Car show and Street Fair!
We are going to need help, as usual, with putting on the show. Need people there by
7am to help park cars.  We will  also need help with registration, selling 50/50 tickets,
manning the wipe off board, silent auction and handing out prizes.
We still need donations for giveaways if you know some local business that would like
to help. Just let them know that we are non-profit and donate our proceeds.
Friday, the day before, we will met starting around 3 to set up for the show.  If you
can't be there early, come as soon as you can.  After everything is set up, we will
have our
TailGate party! Our reward for the hard work. The club furnishes the meat
for the grill, the buns, and paper products. We ask that everyone bring a side dish,
salad or dessert to go with hamburgers and sausage.
Club parking will be on the corner of Main and Hwy 11 till it's full.  There is also
parking on the opposite side of the boulevard for club vehicle.
RULES FOR PARTICIPATION Club members are allowed to enter their cars only
once each. One time per car,  unless you have had a frame off restoration. If you
enter, you will be charged the same as everyone, judged by all the other participates,
and eligible to win trophies and plaques. This is our way of attempting to keep the
show fair for all those that come and join in.
Please come out and help us put on a great show!  These shows are our major
source of income for the club.  

SCHOLARSHIP:    Decisions are made and voted on by the majority of members at
our meetings.  A few months back, we voted to give a scholarship to a deserving
Automotive Vo-Tech student at Picayune High School. The paperwork and check for
$500 has been delivered to the school to be given out at their awards ceremony. We
are happy to be able to do this!  We also hope to be able to continue to do this each
year and possibly adding a student from Pearl River Central.  The Picayune students
built some pretty awesome awards for us for our fall show and they are building some
for us for this show

AND, Mickey is trying to concrete a date for our picnic at the Welcome Center!!
Trying for May 7.
Happy Birthday!
