CAROLINAS AUSTIN-HEALEY CLUB
MINUTES - CAHC - JUly 15, 2019
The Carolina Austin Healey Club met on Monday, July 15th with 31members
in attendance. In Rick Lee’s ab-sence, Charlie Grobusky conducted the
meeting by welcoming everyone and asking if any guests or new members
were present. Dana Steinke who lives in Matthews, heard about our club
and wanted to check it out, thinking he would find lots of Healeys in
the parking lot. Dana is looking for a Healey with the right criteria.
Right now he owns a Miata. Another guest, who became a member tonight,
Bob Marcolese is a neighbor of Ann and John Jones. Bob attended a
meeting before and he tells us he worked with Bill Philips at one time
Rick Lee is doing fine after his mishap in London with his bike and lost
luggage. Living out of garbage bags with a hurt shoulder is no way to
end a great trip biking through England.
Ted Sjolander made an amendment to the June minutes stating that the IRS reinstatement process has been initiated and pending. IRS has cashed our $600 check and will notify the club as to acceptance of application or the need for more information within 90-180 days.He then gave the Treasurer’s Report for the current month. For a full report contact Ted.
Ann Jones - Roadside Care told us that Marilyn Hege is still in a lot of pain from her broken arm. Please let her know you are thinking of her. Chuck Anderson also reported that he had been in the hospital for a few days with a breathing issue. He is better now and attended this meeting. Ann also told us that Pete Delaney’s brother passed away and also to keep Stephanie in your prayers with her up-coming back surgery on July 26th. We were also informed by Linda Brown that Treasure & Alan were not at the meeting because a large tree on their property fell during the storm and they had to take care of that. Oh and by the way Treasure said “I have the Shingles”. Hopefully Treasure is feeling better soon. Stuart Shepherd had his wrist in a support and then he told us what happened. It seems that while replacing the tire on his tractor it collided with his wrist and now his wrist is incapacitated.
Peggy Grobusky told us she has a box of regalia shirts and hats if anyone would like to purchase them.
We were reminded of the tech session being held at the Grobusky’s home on Sat. July 20th starting at 9:30 a.m. A run of overdrive issues will be addressed. It will continue with a BBQ of burgers and sides. Let Peggy or Charlie know if you plan to attend so they can plan the appropriate amount of food.
It was mentioned that the Moss Catalogue has a Lucas pump for $99
Charlie again mentioned what a great job Ed Farnell did with his first newsletter.
Carl Brown did a great presentation on the restoration of his BJ8. Carl showed slides and narrated the reconstruction, and to think it all started with a little blister in the paint.
Chuck Anderson asked if they can work on his broken cylinder during the tech session at Charlie’s, the answer was yes.
Ice Cream Social will be on August 17th at the Grobusky home.
Please note the amendment in the Treasurer’s report for the July minutes.
