Planning Meeting results for 2013 events

On Nov. 18, Iowa Chapter members gathered at The Vine in Coralville to brainstorm and plan out the events for 2013. We started out with a light lunch of wings and pizza to get our brains firing, and then we started on the brainstorming session. Our list of events ranged from participating in Meals From the Heartland to a group drive to a local drive-in theater. Our tentative 2013 calendar is as follows:

January 13 – Iowa Energy basketball game with lunch beforehand at Buzzard Billy’s (Niki Smith and Ed Arnold chairs)
February 23 – Annual Dinner at Urbandale Golf and Country Club (Ed and CeCe Arnold chairs)
February ? – Suspension tech session (Chris Kjellmark chair)
March 23 – Spring Drive from Pella to Skunk River Restorations, Karls Kuston Corvette’s (Mike Myers and David Brighton chairs)
April 20 – photo rally (Chris Kjellmark & Jeff Daly chairs)
April 26-28 – Flat Out driving school at Heartland Park Topeka
May ? – Tech session at J&J
May 8 – Street Survival at Iowa Speedway, Newton (Fred Bell chair?)

November 17 – planning meeting in Des Moines
December 7 – Chili cookoff/video games or movie (Niki & Ryan Smith chairs)

So some of these events still need volunteers to help them run smoothly like Street Survival and the driving school. We also need event chairs for some. Don’t forget that we have increased the membership points values for chairing event or bringing new people to events, so be sure to get involved and get your friends involved! If you are interested in chairing event, email or one of the other board members. We’re all looking forward to an exciting 2013!
