We had a really Fun February Meeting/Christmas Party/Gift Exchange. Katie Lawrence did a great job decorating and the food was wonderful. Great Food, Fun Gifts, and Great People equal a Great Time. Hope even more of you can be there next time.
I’m looking forward to the March Meeting/Car show at Lake Oconee. This show has been well attended by SEGTOA in the past. A lot of SEGTOA functions are on the Northwest side of Atlanta, so for you members on the east side, this meeting will be a lot closer. So, meet us there.
SEGTOA has plenty going on the rest of 2018 too. All our functions are more fun if you’re there!! Life is short, so enjoy the good weather, enjoy your Pontiacs and enjoy your friends in SEGTOA.
John Link, President

The Big Event Car Show at Lake Oconee is coordinated by member Doug Askew. We haven’t
been to this show for a few years, so let’s make a big presence this year to support one of our members. There is no pre-registration. We will plan on caravanning from the east side of Atlanta
together, and you’ve already received one notice, but we’ll send another a day or two before. Please RSVP to Ernie Stephens ([email protected]) ASAP, as Doug is going to reserve parking
for us at the show. Info is on page 4.
You’ll see on pages 5 and 6 info and the registration form for the 2018 Summit Racing
Equipment Atlanta Motorama. You need to get your entry form and fee to Chris McPherson by
March 19, 2018 so he can get them in by March 26 in order for our club to get preferred
parking, club awards, AND to save $15 on your registration fee. You can print and fill out the
form on page 5, and you need to send it to Chris so he can submit them together: Chris
McPherson, 915 Franklin Goldmine Rd, Cumming, GA, 30028. March 19th will be here before
you know it! Don’t miss this show that gets bigger every year!
Pages 7 & 8 contain registration and class information for the Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, &
Cadillac show on Saturday May 12. The BOPC is the best long-standing car show in the area, and
it’s being hosted by the Cadillac club this year. We hosted it in 2016, and we’ll be up again in
2020. The location is great, there’s plenty of parking, and a whole lot of really sweet cars. You
received a Special BOPC Edition Tiger Tales with all the information in it.
Pages 9 & 10 are all about Pontiacs in Pigeon Forge. We heard at least one person say that this is
not only the best Pontiac show he’s ever been to, but the best Car Show he’s been to ever! Very
few Music Road Hotel rooms are available at the show rate. Last year we went up on Thursday
afternoon so we could take our cars in first thing Friday morning. It fills up fast! Details to come.
Dyno Day in July is still being tuned-up, and you’ll receive more info as it becomes available.
Plan on attending and seeing what kind of power your Pontiac is putting out, and do some tuning
on it. If you’ve done it before, you know it’s a lot of fun!
