--Tony Castiglione/Classic Chevys
Club and Chris Addington gave a
quick overview of what he has been
able to find out regarding the possibility of bringing back the Highway 99
event to Bakersfield. An outline was
passed out to all Reps. at this meeting that explained what the early
stages of planning have come up
with. Event will take place in the
Fall; closed cruise route on Friday
night on Chester Ave.; Saturday will
be car show event downtown with
closed off streets; and possibility of
cruise on Saturday night out to Kern
Raceway Park. Above all, we want
this to turn into becoming a charitable event which would need the
backing of 6 to 10 clubs to make this
happen. Each of these clubs would
receive an equal portion of proceeds
for their designated charity for their
help/involvement. Looking at Fall of
2016 (Sept. or Oct.). Friday night
cruise would be from like 6pm-8pm.
Saturday car show would be from
23rd St. down Chester using blocks
east and west down side streets as
well. Intent is to bring back the
young generation to be able to experience Cruising Chester, etc. DBA
(Downtown Business Assoc.) want to
post date on their site. Cathy Butler/DBA said timing was good to
bring this event back. Cruise out to
KCRP for burnout competition that
Saturday night. Please understand
these are just ideas being considered at this time for the early planning stages.
--Proposed new BCCC Patrons were
discussed and introduced at this
meeting. They are Mike
Hatcher/Central Valley Boat & RV
Show and Glen Pierce/Gotta Go Bail
Bonds. Both of these gentlemen
have done a lot over the years to
help BCCC. Motion was made by
Tom Downs/British Car Club and
seconded by Val Miller/Mopars to
approve both Mike Hatcher and Glen
Pierce as BCCC Patrons and all approved.
--Raffle and end of meeting. Meeting
adjourned at 7:45pm.
