Keith;
Art also passed along to me all of his collection of club newsletters. And as you can well imagine, and the enduring legacy to Art- they were in perfect order...
I was the 34th member of the club, I can remember Art was #78 - there were over 500 total members through the clubs life until we just went full digital in the late 00's. My own collection is full of holes. I was quite young when I joined, and I moved around - a lot. Job's changed frequently, it was an economically unstable time. Then I spent a year in Australia, another summer/fall taking a somewhat extended drive across this vast county of our (Vancouver to Newfoundland and back over 4 months). So newsletters weren't always consistent until about 2003 when I settled down finally.

Anyways, we can compare notes one day on what we have - sounds like a good thing to do at 510 Day at my place in May! 510 Day falls on a Friday this year - I can't get everyone out of here before 1am on week nights, I may as well tell everyone to bring a tent since most wont work Saturday! Actually I really look forward to it.

Funny, one of my lists from 2006...has you at #44, Art at #80, me at #24.

Glad to know there is a complete set for posterity.

I did find the futuristic story that I was able to scan with OCR, so now I just need to tidy it up. It will be interesting to see what people think on this go-round.

That's funny.

Going through the Bert Vorgon Archives today...

I found a brand new NISSAN wind shell, XL.

From back in the 90's when Nissan sponsored me with swag....

2 brand new white NISSAN MOTORSPORTS T shirts, XL.

I also have a few sew on crests, Blue, NISSAN...they are nice

So, for 510 Day, try to remind me and I will bring and donate to those of you larger than me.....

Yes, mostly due to aging memory.

Your numbers seem correct Keith.

Swag give away sounds good. Seems we'll have a few visitors from the island as well for 510 Day.

After a few hours work I was able to sort out my story scanned out of a 1994 Newsletter, with my OCR program. I was quite amazed at how well it actually worked as it is based out of my simple Brother printer.


It is now posted to my TALES FROM THE GREAT ROLLING DYNO thread.
