Director's Trophy

Puget Sound Region VCCA

2000 Annual Banquet

Kenmore, WA
Jan 21, 2001

Another great year has concluded.  Actually a century.  We thanked our outgoing club officers and welcomed the incoming ones for 2001.  This club continues to remain viably active year-after-year.  It is truly a testament of the power of good friendship - and it's all brought together by the desire to keep vintage Chevrolets on the road.

Once again the food was outstanding and the program was very enjoyable.  Steve Grissom led the club through a version of the Family Feud game.  People were randomly paired up as families.  It's amazing how hard it is to guess the answers to some pretty common questions when you're put on the spot.  We sure have a weird way of enjoying ourselves!  :-)

On this page, I featured our club's Director's Award.  This is the 20th consecutive year that it's been awarded.  And it went to a person who was also a new member this past year!  That's enthusiasm.  Jim Martoza not only joined last year but also volunteered to be the editor of our monthly newsletter.  Due to his fine efforts at handling this enormous task, he was recognized with our highest honor.

Note:  Some of the photos are a little dark this year.   That's the result of using a digital camera in a dimly lit room.  We had the lights turned down most of the evening so that the candles created an ambiance for the event.   Unfortunately a digital camera needs more light than a standard film camera so we'll have to correct that next year.  Either that, or we shift our location to the nearest MacDonalds!

Finally, some words to live by in the coming millennium:
  • Birthdays are good for you... the more you have, the longer you live.
  • How long a minute is, depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on.
  • Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
  • A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour!!

Ha!  See ya next year!!!
