The Board Room / Re: SAAC Regions and insurance

The Board needs to respond here.

I finally went to Hagerty direct and got my own club policy, $1/$5 million. Not cheap, but the consequences......

To any regional group that has gone forwards and set yourself up as a non-profit group:

How did you do it? What style of organization did you use? Annual costs? Protection?

Many, many groups and clubs are in desperate need of this info. I invite SAAC Board to provide proper guidance. Most of the regional groups are flying unprotected, and it is getting very scary in the modern world. We need help and guidance.

My own regional group buys it's own insurance for the club from Hagerty, but we need to get banking and liability set. I have been running the club for 25 years, will be stepping down at the end of 2022. I MUST have the club set up as an organization able to stand on it's own.


SAAC 29:

Too get back to the Cougars, which Michigan convention were both on display? Didn't CobraJeff organize that?

I have the Wallace Wyss book in my personal library. But, I "borrowed it permanently" from a library many years ago! Agreed, in today's world it's not very good, but when it was originally written, there was much less information available. Not defending, just an observation.

I borrowed a few other books in similar subject as well!

Definitely in the switch harness/wiring, though taillights do not pass through the switch.

How are the grounds in the trunk? I bet they could be an issue. Clean, metal to metal contact only, no paint

If you either cannot find an original, or need a custom speed, call me. I know how to modify an EL-12 for getting all segments fully lit, Bulb or LED.

Heard from the family that a memorial service will be planned for June 2022 in Delaware. Currently they are keeping things quiet, just the family.

Will keep all posted.

New Jersey Region SAAC / Checkered Flag - Roy Miller

The older members may remember Roy. Lived in Phillipsburg for many years, has a Pastel Grey 1969 GT-350 4-Sp. We all knew him as "Dr. Panic". Truly a wonderful guy, active in SAAC starting back in the 1980's. I met Roy when I first moved out to that area, he was an amazing help, he and his wife Fran were so helpful, Godparents to my son.

Roy retired, moved to Delaware with the car, and was currently in Florida with his daughter's family. Many health issues later in life, finally put out the flame of a fierce fighter, friend to all. He's such an old friend, I don't have any digital images of him or the car.

Rest in peace my old friend, you and Walt are together again, fixing cars and drinking coffee.
