The meeting was called to order at 12:50pm by President James Kasper, after the Veterans Day Parade we drove to Pt Lavaca had lunch at Whites BBQ then had our meeting on the water front.
The minutes of last meeting were read by Secretary Chris Kasper. There were no corrections to the minutes. A motion to accept minutes as read was made by Burson Patton and seconded by J.R.Rusch. All approved minutes as read.

In the Cuero Turkey Fest Parade we had 3 cars, we were awarded first place in car division and received a blue ribbon. The Yorktown Western Day Parade we had 4 cars and also took first place in the car division and received a wooden plaque. The Autumn A’s Tour was a lot of fun. We had 6 cars and 10 people attending. Everyone enjoyed the tour and had a good visit with the other club members.
We had a refresher course on clubs regulations and bylaws. After reviewing the bylaws it states, that Local dues for the family are payable in advance of the first day of January. The Model A Ford club of America and The Model A Restorers Club dues will be paid directly to the national clubs by the members.
Therefore to be in compliance with bylaws effective January 1st, 2018 the Model A Ford club will no longer pay officers dues to the national clubs, each officer will be responsible to pay their own dues. After discussion current officers will retain their current position for the 2018 year.
