Ida Car and Motorcycle show:

The Diamond Chapter made a good showing at the MT. Ida Good Ole Days Car and bike Show.

Eleven mmbers were present and we had nine antique motorcycles on display. Jed Simpson won

the antique class with his Honda CT 70. We also displayed the club Motorcycle for sale and had some good comments on it. Some interest but no money.

There was a good display of Cars and Motorcycles to look at.

 The weather was good and it was a fun day with good friends and people.

The Diamond Chapter always has a good time at this event and we are happy to help. We had a quickie meeting and talked about the Mini Road Run in June.

No minutes were taken.
