Golden Corral Closed For Remodeling

January’s meeting is canceled, due to lack of a meeting place. Also, with the recent uptick of Covid cases in the area, it is probably good to not meet this month anyway. Golden Corral is currently being remodeled. We are open for suggestions on new meeting places. A couple of members have suggested Mama’s House, as they have a large meeting room that would accommodate the club. If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know. Email is guitarsandcars64@gmail.com, phone is 423-967-1640.

Christmas Party

Around 23 members, spouses and significant others attended the Christmas Party at Food City. Food was good and it was great catching up with folks. Thanks to all that helped plan it.

 

Mossy Creek Cruzers Update

(Following from Mossy Creek Cruzers)

The Mossy Creek Cruzers has moved their Friday night cruise-in to Hardee's in Dandridge on Friday evenings from 5:00 until 8:30. Walmart said they couldn't let us come back until the pandemic is over and all businesses are open again. We used to have a cruise in at Hardee's about 10 years ago so I talked to them and we are back there. We are not having the cruise-in in December but will start back in January. The good part is they have plenty of parking spaces but when it is cold we can go inside and stay as long as we want to. It also helps their business, so they welcomed us! It is being built up, not a lot of cars right now. maybe 12-15 but hopefully in the Spring it will get large like it used to be.

 Hardees is located at exit 417 of interstate 40, just behind/beside Perkins. The Cruzers Sunday afternoon cruise-in at Bojangles is not going on anymore.
