Regarding Tiger Re-Run

During our January, 2018 Goat Herd club meeting, there was some lively discussion regarding the possibility of an event similar to Tiger Run, to be called Tiger Re-Run. That discussion revealed that rather than have another similar event, the Goat Herd members decided to NOT have such an event. Rather than one main event, the Goat Herd members will plan several other club events that involve either overnight events, specific cruise-ins to attend, or just a club one-day event, such as a club picnic or tour. This gives us more options to gather as a GTO club group and take advantage of going to several different venues the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Keep watching our club website for news of our next events, such as Bingo in February.

Feb. 2018 Event – BINGO

Yes! It’s BINGO day! On February 10th, the Goat Herd will be having its first ever BINGO event. This is a FUND RAISER for the club, as well as a fun event for ALL Goat Herd family members.

The date for this planned BINGO program is Saturday, Feb. 10, starting at 1:00Pm until about 4:00pm. The location is Larry’s Restaurant – that’s right, our club meeting place – and is open to all club member families. Frank Salerno will be the coordinator, and is seeking assistance from 2 or 3 others to help. The restaurant will be serving food items on a limited basis – hamburgers, fries, maybe melted cheese sandwiches, and ice cream and drinks. The only stipulation the restaurant has is a mandatory purchase of a food item by each individual. That’s because we are not being charged for use of the restaurant, but they need to make it monetarily worthwhile to be open for us.

At this point, we plan on BINGO participants purchasing individual BINGO cards for $1.00 each – remember, this is a club fund raiser. But we also have some really great prizes for winners of each game….for example, a box of See’s Candies, a Nike collapsible travel bag, a halogen desk lamp, maybe a pair of movie theatre tickets, and other items. Time allowed, we will probably play 8 games, BINGO patterns to be determined, and includes the last game of Blackout (not necessarily a 50/50 pot split). So now is the time to start preparing…go out and buy your ink daubers and start saving your dollar bills (and some extras for the mandatory food item purchase), come to Larry’s Restaurant for some Saturday afternoon fun, and come early – the games begin at 1:00pm, and you want to get there early, as there is seating for about 60-70 persons (family members include mom, dad, son, daughter, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, the ex…you know, the usual suspects!). We will have s Sign-up sheet for BINGO at the next club meeting so we can plan for the number of persons planning on attending. If you cannot be at the next club meeting but want to sign up for BINGO, send an e-mail to Frank Salerno at including the number of persons attending, and he will sign you up. Information in this publication may change, so check it periodically….for example, if we reach the seating limit by or at the next club meeting, we will post that information here.

Addendum: Bingo daubers can be purchased at most “Dollar” stores.

2nd December Club Event for 2017

Notification by e-mail had been sent out to all members of a second December club event coordinated by Rod Nichols to be held Saturday, the 30th. The event was another trip to the World of Speed where one of our club members had his burgundy/black ’64 GTO on display along with many other marques and muscle of the muscle car era. (The ’64 belongs to Jan Weston, who is also a terrific supporter of our club.) The day was dry and relatively warm for late December, and several club members decided to take advantage of the weather and attend the event. In fact, there were 45 club/family members that were at the event. Provision had also been made to have lunch at The Ram restaurant after the viewing, and everyone showed up at the restaurant (45 club members at a restaurant for lunch makes for quite an event by itself). Stef and Suzanne Pfafnis from Washington joined us, and the club as new members, Marc Powell and son David from Monmouth joined in as well as Steve Stewart from Eugene and Frank and Kathy Richards from Cornelius and, of course, the rest of us. Where were Fred and Laura Brewer from Lincoln City…we missed you! For those of us in attendance at this final club event for 2017, a good time was had by all!
