PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE  

 

25th ANNUAL ROCKET ROUND UP

Another car show is in the books and it was a very successful show. Here are the award winners. They will also be on our website.


Ed & Pam Konsmo, Puyallup, WA
1950 88 Sedan
- Long Distance Award Non-Member 771 Miles
- Oldest Oldsmobile at Olds Award

2003 Aurora Final 500
- Long Distance Award-Member 703 Miles


Ken Schaber, Olds, AB
1959 Ninety-Eight SceniCoupe
- President’s Trophy


So we had a show of opposites. We had the oldest Oldsmobile and the newest Oldsmobile winning awards (1950 vs. 2003), as well as the Oldsmobile from the longest distance (Puyallup (Puyallup, WA) and the Oldsmobile from the shortest distance (Olds, AB) winning. See the article on page 7 for more from the 25th annual show.

I would like to acknowledge the 100th anniversary of the ending of WWI , November 11, and how well our troops fought from 1914 to 1918. Canadian soldiers fought so well that they were used as shock troops after their successes at
Vimy Ridge. After that battle, they were used in situations where the allies needed a victory. Well done. We also celebrate our 412th Thanksgiving Day on October 8. I for one am looking forward to turkey with all the trimmings. Also, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May 2019 bring you health, happiness, and prosperity (so you can get those Oldsmobile parts you want). I’m looking forward to seeing you all next year.

Ken

 


OCA PACIFIC NORTH WEST ZONE DIRECTOR, OLDSMOBILE CLUB OF AMERICA

Jamie Cox, our past president and current Pacific NW Zone Director of the OCA, was convinced at the OCA Board meeting at the Gettysburg Nationals that he should serve another two-year term as one of the two Directors representing this zone. Congratulations Jamie and thanks for your service to the club.

BOP SHOW

The first Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac show was held on September 9 in Edmonton at Northgate GM. It was a little cooler than we’d hoped for (12c) and the skies threatened rain, but no rain fell. In all about 75 cars showed up. The show was hosted by the Iron Indians Pontiac Club and although the majority of cars were Pontiacs, there was good representation from all three
brands. Even a couple of Camaros and one Roadrunner managed to slip in. Pictures of the show (and all the Oldsmobiles) can be seen on our Facebook page. If we are given a flyer for next years’ show before June 15, we will add it to our July issue.

 

CAR CLUB CALENDARS

Miranda Kurpe would still like to put together a Northern Lights Oldsmobile calendar for 2019. We have 4 cars so far and are looking for some more nice looking cars to have included in this project. Don’t be shy, let’s get this thing done before the snow arrives for the rest of the year. She picks different locations to complement the car and background. If you’re interested in having your car featured, let me know and I will give her a list of cars so she can contact you.
