President’s Message

July, 2023

Greetings Fellow Oldsmobile Lovers,

I hope everyone is doing well and staying cool! Get ready everyone, Independence Day is here!

God Bless America!

Although some may say, “It ain’t what it used to be”

I think we’re dang lucky to be here.

I feel guilty for not scheduling any Club functions over the summer months, but we decided to do things “on the fly”, that is, as things come up in places where we don’t have to worry about the summer heat cook- ing us.

Maybe I’m just getting wimpy in my old age (65), but I think most will agree that if you’re not comfortable, you’re not having as much fun or enjoyment from the outing.

We really haven’t had the opportunity to have a Board Meeting with members traveling out of state for the N.A.O.C. , the Power Tour or Homecoming, but I’ve been thinking, (YIKES!), a group of us has been talking about taking in a Tampa Bay Rays Game at the Trop or getting together to go bowling….. think about it, Good friends, A/C, ball park & bowling alley grub! What more could we ask for?

If anyone in other areas of the state would like to get together with a member in your area for a local activity or want a local event posted, I can help get it done, all it takes is a phone call, text, e-mail or smoke signals! (as long as the smoke isn’t coming from your Olds!).

The BOPC Show will be here before we know it! Don’t forget to mark your calendars for October 28th! I have a block of rooms booked at the same Comfort Inn & Suites we’ve stayed at for the last couple of years, I checked and double checked, they still have the best rate and it’s con- venient to all the necessities and only 15-20 minutes from the Show.

The deadline for booking is 10/5, and they only allotted us 10 rooms and recommended booking early in case we need more rooms. The rooms are held for the night of the 27th and 28th if you want to stay a second night. The rate is $149.00 per night plus tax.

Rooms are booked under “Old’s Club of Florida”. The address and phone # is as follows… 3520 North Highway 98, Lakeland Fl. 33809. 863-859-0100. Hope you can make it!

That’s all I’ve got except for what I’ve forgot!
Everyone stay safe, healthy and cool! Until next month, remember. Keep those Rockets Rolling!
