United 39 is scheduled for Oakville, Ontario, CA September 15-18, 2022. It is scheduled to coincide with British Car Day, the largest one-day all British car show in North America.
Specifics of the plan are included in the slides.
Positions to be filled are: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Rob Harter is at the end of his maximum four-year service, but no one has agreed to run for the office. We continue to look for a candidate. Additionally, one board position is required. (After the meeting and more research, it is found that three board members are at the end of their terms: Tom Ehrhart, Tom Calvert and Eric Gibeaut.) All have agreed to run again. Ballots will be included in the November issue of the RootesReview. Clyde McLaughlin volunteered to run if he was needed.
