Many members and quests rode in early to socialize and enjoy the camaraderie. Our host, Phil Craine was flying a Learjet 45 back from Aspen, Colorado and arrived just after the meeting
Brad, Phil's oldest son opened the hanger doors and had cold refreshments waiting for us. Brad was a AMA Pro Motocross racer who was slated for a factory Honda ride right before he broke
his leg during the last race of that year.
Chris Parry started the meeting promptly at 2PM.
First order of business was presented by Dennis Tackett. Dennis announced that Keith Martin owner of Big D Cycle convinced the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) to conduct their
premier race at MotorSport Ranch in Cresson, TX from Friday, March 25 thru Sunday, March 27, 2011. Keith asked Dennis if he would organize the event with the NTNOA's help. He wants the event which
normally takes place at Daytona during Bike Week to be the greatest ever including an antique bike show similar to the one at Lake O' the Pines. Dennis needs 20 volunteers to help with gate registration,
bike show setup and registration and general support. Each volunteer will have free access to the event and receive $100. The NTNOA will also receive a portion of the gate proceeds.
Aggressive Insurance is one of the sponsors for the event and is donating the $100 per club volunteer. By the close of the meeting Dennis had most of the 20 volunteers needed but still needs a few more.
If you would like to volunteer email Dennis at firstname.lastname@example.org
During the November meeting the club votes for next year's club officers.
Results of the election for our 2011 club officers are:

Chris thanked our outgoing treasurer Bob Hagemann for an outstanding job. Bob announced earlier in the year that this would be his last year as treasurer.
Chris adjourned the meeting but the party continued.
