ICCSW Annual After-Holiday Dinner Report
The Olive Garden - Grapevine, Texas
January 14th, 2017
Our Annual January Dinner: A Smashing Success!! We had a terrific social evening
at the cocktail hour and dinner on Saturday at the Olive Garden in Grapevine.
For those of you who attended, most with spouses and significant others, we thank
you for coming and making the party so much fun! For those of you who could
not make it, let me share some highlights of the evening.
Folks began showing up right after 6:00 pm, some of us we're there right at six!
The cocktail hour gave us all a chance to socialize and talk to everyone, some old
friends, some 'new' friends. Being in a private room, conversation was a joy!
We've missed being able to do that for a few years. The cocktail hour is a permanent
part of the evening from here forward as is the private room!
We began the dinner with Randy welcoming everyone and then moving right to election
of officers for 2017. Randy then went to our fabulous door prizes, yes, as in two
door prizes! The wait staff assisted and drew names for the occasion.
The first, "Cars, Cars and More Cars" - consisted of a coffee table book
Cars: A Celebration by Quentin Willson, the animated movie Cars;
and a CD: Just What I Needed: The Cars Anthology by the band The Cars. Kevin Burns
won this one.
The second, "An Italian Dinner For Two" – consisted of imported Italian pasta, sauce,
wine, Italian olive oil and more! I think you get the point. This was won by Bob Dezzany.
Thanks to all who could join us at the event!. E 'stato fantastico, con un buon tempo aveva da tutti!
We'll see you all next year!

Keels & Wheels 2016
April 23 - 24, 2016
Lakewood Yacht Club
Two of our club members won awards at this most prestigious event. Val Herrera took home the Silver Award in the Italian Miscellaneous class with his gorgeous 1971 Alfa Romeo Junior Zegato.
It took a 1957 Dual Ghia to keep him out of 1st place, so the competition was fierce! Likewise, Gordon Sauer took the Silver Award in the European Post-war class
with his 1972 Citroen SM. Top honors in this class went to a 1973 Citroen D Super "Goddess". Congratulations to our club winners.
The boys did good!
