Members' area on website updated.

The RVCC newsletter for Feb 2013 has been added in to the Members' area on our website (see 'Links' tab). If you need password, just request it.

Also a new photo has been added to the photo album.  Check it out. I'm not telling which it is, see if you can find it! ;) Also some more links have been added to the links page. They are reciprocal links - they referred others to our website.

Have you checked out 'our store'?

After the club meeting on the Saturday before the show, Dave & Bonnie Schmidthans went home and braved the internet to order themselves some great mugs with the club logo on them. Dave chose the larger mugs with a blue rim & handle. They were 30% discount that day, so they really scored! 

Friday they received them - less than a week later. They bought them to the show on Saturday and are very proud of them. Great quality mugs I was told, and this was repeated by all who saw them. Thanks so much Dave & Bonnie for your support of our club. 

Have you seen the store yet? It is currently having more added to it all the time. Maybe something will catch your eye?

I guess this is one reason ...

I guess this is one reason we love going to car shows ... you get to see up close and personal things you possibly can only dream of. :) I couldn't resist this one! Gotta check things out!

And the winner is ...

Congratulations to Glenn & Peggy Jahnke of Sams Valley, Oregon.

You'll want to take a closer look ... (Come to the car show this weekend!)

Sneak peek! 

Get yourself down to the county fairgrounds for this weekend's Southern Oregon Rod & Custom Show (36th annual).

Definitely some treats on 4 wheels (well some are more, and some are less), for all to see. 

Family fun! 

Car corral for those in the market for a new set of wheels.

Car buffs gear up for Rod & Custom Show (2012 + 2008)

Thought some might like to read this article in the Mail Tribune. It's from 2012. Someone found our site today through this article.

http://www.mailtribune.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20120217/TEMPO/202170303/-1/TEMPO17   It has a great photo of Pete Bradford's 1938 Lincoln Zephyr convertible coupe.

I also found one for 2008:

Preview notice for June Swap Meet in Medford.

Mark your calendars, or even better ... go to the calender on our website, and to the 9th of June, and sign up to get an email reminder!!!! The southern Oregon Inter-Club Council will be holding their 4th Annual Southern Oregon Swap Meet on Sunday, June 9th, 2013. All details and contact information is on our calendar. Check it out.

"Our Store" is starting to be populated. Join in the fun!

View more gifts at Zazzle.

Now this is fun! Club members can help promote the club, and show off their club pride by purchasing a whole range of items with club images and logos. You'll find the link on the "Our Store" tab of our website.

I have been associated with this 'Print On Demand' site for the past 7 years or so, and when setting up the website, wanted to incorporate it for members as I know how much fun this can be. 
A small percentage of every sale goes to the club. I suggest you sign up for emails as this site has great sales, so if you love something, put it on your wish list, as it may be on a sale the next week or two - sometimes with 50% discounts! For instance, today is the last day for 30% off all mugs, shirts and bags - use code WELUVYOUSALE - check out the mugs - I bet you'll want one, or more! All products are good quality. Don't like what you ordered? Send it back. They have a no-questions asked policy!

Can you imagine:
- sending out letters using stamps with the club logo on them?
- personalized Christmas cards with your club vehicle & logo?
- wearing caps with club logo, drinking coffee from mug with same, while sitting on a cushion also with the logo, at a show or auto event? Put your name on the mug so someone doesn't nick it! :)
- keeping a diary of your travels in a notebook with the club logo on the cover, and possibly with other personalizations, like a photo from your trip with the logo on top of it.
- your dog having a sweater with the club logo on it
- stretched canvases hanging on your wall - be it garage, shop, home or office - with club logo, show posters or other images
- how about a belt buckle with the show logo on it?
- great gifts with the show logo
... and more and more ideas that are SO numerous.
Check it out!
