A Quick Word from our Chairman
Hats off to our Tune Up Chairman Tony Bauer and all the volunteers for a very successful Tune Up Week thus far. We know Linden turned out to be a stormy night that ultimately ended in cancelation, but the turn out in Flushing more than made up for it. Tonight, we will be in Flint Township and wrap it up tomorrow in Mt. Morris. Special Thank You to our Tune Up Parties Sponsor Elga Credit Union.

Next week offers a full schedule of activities for all to take part in. Get out, enjoy yourself, cruise in your cars and most of all, enjoy all that Back to the Bricks® has to offer.

See you on the Road! 

Steve Hobson
Chairman of the Board
