He will also be producing 100 more of the DVDs of the KTM day at the museum last August as well as making some more tags to put on display bikes. John, Alan and Doug will be deciding if and how to number volumes of our C.D.s. John will also bring a projector and screen to show DVDs on Sat. night. Alan says we will have dinner around 5 or 5:30 p.m. and the meeting will follow. Some one stated that Adam Giddings will be contesting 4 classes in the MX on Penton motorcycles. He won 2 classes last year. Dane stated that they have made a whole new MX track as well as a track for minis and quads.

Under old business, it was reported that more DVDs were sold and that we received a couple donations.

Under new business, Paul gave out flyers for the BSA Owners Groups 25th annual rally and stated that they have a very nice reliability run on Sat. Dane, Al, and the Borers told about a very long but interesting auction sale at the late John Cobb’s residence as Mrs. Cobb is moving back to N. Carolina. Doug said that Teddy Landers has been sending him pictures of our banner at various Vintage races. A discussion was held concerning giving our Penton banners to Vintage Class Champions (AHRMA). They would have to be riding a Penton, including Wassell or a vintage KTM and must be an active POG member and there would be a limit of 1 banner per person. With the above stipulations, Paul Busick made a motion to give a banner to each class champion with it being retroactive to 2005 and for the banners to be given at Vintage Days the following year. The motion was seconded by D. Leimbach and all were in favor of the motion. For “Topic of Discussion”, Bill Smith showed several slides and Bill told the story of how he progressed from a mini-bike to riding Pentons. The meeting ended at 9:50 p.m. and the next meeting will be at Mid-Ohio and there will be no Aug. meeting.
