I am writing this on March fourth. I am tired of this snow. I have been home since
Friday. My plow guy’s truck is broke down and I cannot get out of my driveway.
If he does not get it fixed today I will have to find another plower. The snow is so
piled up in my yard I don’t know where he will put more of it. The ground hog got
this one wrong. Spring can come anytime.

I am getting some vendors booked for the Upper Midwest Convention. They have
picked the booths they want and what they want to sponsor. We also have some
CARS members that are picking sponsorship too. So, if your yard wants to sponsor
something please let me know.

The attendee booklet has been mailed out and I have included a copy in this newsletter.
The speakers are great, and I am sure you will all be excited to hear what
they have to say. Marty Hollingshead, the ARA secretary, will be the representative
for our national association. He will be in booth #6 and give us an update on what
is happening on the national level as a speaker at our lunch.

A golf outing is on Thursday and the thing I am excited about is the tour of Elmer’s
Salvage and Toy Museum. I have not been there for many years. Way back in the
1970’s we were racing stock cars and needed a hood for a 98 Cougar. Well, Elmer’s
had one and we left Shawano on a Saturday morning in -10 below temperatures
weather. I remember being in their office and looking out the windows and everything
was downhill. Amazing! Elmer had a lot of antiques at that time, so you can
imagine how much their place has grown since then. We are planning to have a bus
take us from the Ho Chunk Hotel to Elmer’s. We would like to get a sponsor for
the bus so it will not cost us too much. So if you would like to donate $750.00 for
the bus we can have a great tour I am sure everyone will enjoy it.

Please get your registrations sent in and let’s have a great convention.
