President Tom C. presided over the meeting, attended by thirty members. President Tom recognized and thanked all those involved in planning and conducting events during the year. He announced he was stepping down from the president position and a new president would be elected. Other officers stepping down are Cat A. (Newsletter), and MJ S. (VP-NW).
Thirteen events were proposed for 2013, plus the discussion of a possible event (Hi-Way 51 Tour) in conjunction with another organization. The result of ensuing discussion was to permit such event if it did not conflict with a club-sponsored event.

Newly elected President Don M. proposed a change in the membership dues, which was defeated in a voice vote.

He further requested VPs conduct 'non-official' activities to get to know their members better.
Door prizes were drawn and the meeting adjourned
