Annual Meeting Report

The Christmas celebration and annual meeting was well-attended and we are thankful for favorable weather this year. The year was reviewed and it was agreed to continue the monthly evening socials and the morning brunches. The treasury is in good shape, there were only a couple of expenses for the year and after a fair amount of discussion Darryl Bendickson agreed to put together a 2015 north Mad River Valley tour with site input from Mrs. McConnell.

Re-elected to office were Danny Dunham, President; Brian Mettling, VP and he is adding the Secretary position for 2015; Tim Voss, Treasurer. We wish the officers and tour leaders well in 2015 and once again add our sincere statement of appreciation to the McConnells for their hospitality and many kindnesses to the club and its members.

Annual Meeting

Through the generosity and hospitality of our members, Bob and Diane McConnell, we will once again gather for our Annual Meeting, Election of Officers and Christmas Celebration at the McConnell Depot in Urbana on December 13, 2014. Plan to arrive from 11:30 a.m. until noon and we will share our celebration luncheon shortly after noon. The club will provide the main meat dish and each family should bring a dish to share in the potluck luncheon; drinks provided by the McConnells. After the meal we will proceed with a review of 2014 activities, consider any motions for club action and elect officers for 2015. Please consider sharing your experience and leadership as an officer of Mad River Ts. Volunteers and nominations will be received for all offices.

Please do not miss this important annual event. The club needs your participation in its direction and activities for the coming year. McConnell’s Depot is located on the south side of W. Main Street (SR 29) just beyond the railroad overpass. Plenty of parking for Ts and other less aged vehicles.

Summer Tour - Tecumseh Trail

The Mad River Ts Summer Tour will be held Sunday, August 3, and start from Studebaker's Family Restaurant in New Carlisle.  Trailer parking will be available nearby the restaurant.  Plan to meet for brunch at Studebaker's around 9:00 a.m.  Meals and snacks will be from Studebaker's excellent breakfast menu. 
The National Road (Tolls)
The tour will be a leisurely route through some beautiful countryside within historic Clark County.  Sites along the way will be significant in the life of Tecumseh, great leader within the Shawnee tribe.  Along the way we will use and cross the National Road, historic Route 40, which played a huge role in America's westward expansion.  This road will take us to Tecumseh High School, and the annual large cruise-in that financially supports the Tecumseh athletics program.  Registration to join the cruise-in is an option for tour participants.  The tour will conclude at Studebaker's in early afternoon.

Mark your calendar now for this fun run tour.  Details and maps will follow via e-mail messages.
