CLUB NOTES

Cruise-In to Summer 9

This year's Cruise-In to Summer car show was held Saturday, June 17th at Cook Park in the Village of Colonie. The weather was perfect and the auction action was fast and furious. Although the car count was down from last year, we raised $1270 for the benefit of the Boys & Girls Clubs. We couldn't do it without the enthusiastic support of Greg Goldstein and the staff at Goldstein Buick/GMC, Jessica Rowe and the gang at the Boys & Girls Clubs, and all those who volunteer their time and energy to make this event one the best annual shows in the area. Thank you all. 


Presenting the check. L to R: Glen Taunton of Goldstein Buick, club members Lyn Baum-Jakubiak & Tony D'Amelio, Jessica Rowe & Amelia Torres of the Boys & Girls Clubs, Greg Goldstein of Goldstein Buick & Alex Buitron of the Boys & Girls Clubs

Chapter Picnic

41 people attended this year's chapter picnic. It was again held at Cook Park in the Village of Colonie. It was a beautiful day for a picnic and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We also signed up two new members. 
Our next chapter event is the Northeast Regional, followed by the Holiday Party December 3rd.

Like Buicks? Want to meet like-minded individuals? Then consider joining the Upstate New York Chapter of the Buick Club of America. We are based in the Capital District area but have members in the surrounding communities as well. We even have a member from the state of Vermont! We enjoy driving our cars so a lot of our activities include a driving tour of some sort. Past driving tours have taken us north to Plattsburgh, over to Stockbridge, MA, and into the mountains of Vermont. We also hold an annual cruise-in at Goldstein Buick in Albany. We use it to kick off the summer and open it to any and all cars, as it is a fundraiser for local charity. We hold a summer picnic and Christmas party with little or no cost to attending members. Our meetings are generally held in the winter months, usually the third Sunday of the month, and we try to hold them at interesting locations. Our quarterly newsletter, Upstate Update, goes out to all chapter members. And, oh yea, you will usually find some of us at the local cruise-ins in the summer. Like I said, we like to drive our cars.

If we sound like the club for you, check us out. Contact one of the officers for further information.

Cruise to Mills Mansion for the
Gathering of Old Cars 
Plans are under way for a caravan down to Mills Mansion for the annual Gathering of Old Cars. It is open to anyone who wishes to cruise down with us. It is not restricted to club members or just Buicks. If you have never been, I recommend you consider it. We take a scenic ride down Routes 9 & 9H with one stop along the way. We meet at the Mobil Mart/Dunkin Donuts off Exit 10 eastbound on I-90, then take I-90 to Exit 12 to pick up Route 9. It's around an hour and a half ride, depending on the number of cars and the speed we drive. The plan is to leave the meeting point at 8:30 so please allow enough time to gas up, get some donuts & coffee, and whatever else you need to tend to. 
If you plan on going I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Email me at cruisemastered@gmail.com or call 518-456-8909 and leave a message.
