Minutes of the March 17, 2007 meeting at Okee-Tantie Campground and Marina near Okeechobee are as follows:

Cale called the meeting to order.

Minutes of the January 20, 2007 meeting were read and approved.

There were 7 clubs present and I Excused Absence (out of 14 clubs total) during roll call.

Linard gave the Treasurer's report and advised the members he only has 8 of the 2007 Vanning Calendars left.  They are $15 each.


Agnes noted that the deadline for input to the next newsletter is May 19.


Cale got a letter from the Ocala Ranch RV Resort confirming the FVC event August 31 – September 3 and the rates.


John Attrill, our friend from the UK,  asked Cale if the FVC would object to him scheduling a “Vanners at Sea” cruise out of Port Canaveral to Nassau – Freeport from February 3 – 7, 2008.  Inside cabins would be $307 per person and seaside would be $347.  20 cabins have been reserved.  The group concluded that we had no objections, as there will be no conflict with the 2008 CofC meeting, which doesn’t start until February 7.  The ship will be back in port early on the morning of February 7.

Cale said he wants to get a group together for an out-of-state van run this year.  It was suggested that Great Smoky Mountain Van Reunion III (GSVR III) would be a good choice.

Cale also mentioned that there is a benefit Poker Run on Sunday, April 1 from Orange City through Osteen, Samsula, Deland, and back to Orange City.  They flyer will be put on the FVC website this weekend.


No new van-in proposals were made.

Buffalo Bob said it’s pretty silly to have more trophies than vans in the show.  This has come about as a result of the large number of classes and the fewer number of vans in each show.  After some discussion, a motion by Judith (seconded by Carol) that, for the year 2007, the FVC limit the minimum number of required trophies to:

Best of Show

Best Exterior

Best Interior

Best Full Custom

Best Street Custom

was carried by a hand vote of 20 FOR and 1 AGAINST.  During subsequent discussion Magoo stated that a club should be able to give out as many van judging trophies as they wanted.  It was clarified that the motion does not limit the maximum number of trophies that can be presented, just the minimum.  It was also stated that this motion is in effect for the calendar year 2007 only.  If the council likes the idea, then a motion to make the change permanent could be presented sometime during the year 2008.

Cari made a motion to adjourn and the meeting was concluded.
