Ah! Summer. I love it. I hope you are enjoying it also. It will be over way too soon.
I hope you are getting ready for the All Euro Car Show on August 20th at Veterans Park. It is going to be bigger and better this year, but only with your help. Registration begins at 9:00am on August 20th.
The turnout for the Phillipsburg trip was small. Just Jim and Karen Grace and myself. But we had a great drive through the beautiful Pintler Scenic route. Phillipsburg is a quaint little town with a lot of mining history. Karen and I split a bag of rocks from the Montana Gem sapphire mine. We both found some sapphires at least one carat in size to make something.
We have two trips for September if you are interested. The Hay Bale Trail is Sunday, September 11th. If you are interested let me know and I will organize something. Even if we do not go as a group it is a fun day trip to Hobson and Windham.
I also have eight tickets reserved for the Tippet Rise outdoor Art in Fishtail. If I need to order more please let me know. We will leave from the usual Holiday Station on Gabel Rd at 9:30 am on Saturday the 17th. Our reservations are for 11:00 am. They serve lunch on the property or we can go on into Fishtail as they have a great little restaurant there.
We have several members that have renewed their membership. Thanks and hope to see you at one of our events.
Our next breakfast meeting at Grains of Montana in Billings is on August 13th.
I hope to see you soon.
