    CENTRAL OKLAHOMA CHAPTER

Our second  club meeting of 2021 resulted in a vote to set the second Thursday of each month as our "regularly scheduled club meeting, thus ending a long period of happenstance, hurriedly-called- for special purpose gatherings.  Hopefully we can now plan ahead and bring up at each meeting any items to be considered.  

WHAT'S GOING ON

We invite you to join us at any of our local events or contact us for more details.

ATTENTION: REGULAR MEETINGS

   NOW THE NORM

Regular Meeting Time Set

9AM  of the second Thursday of each month   will find the Central Oklahoma Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers club gathering at Grandy's 7204 S Western Ave. in Oklahoma City.

 

 

 Brief note on recent meeting: 

For the Thursday 12 August meeting we saw low attendance but every one of those attending arrived in a classis vehicle , none newer than 1964.

The Secretary read the two items that were tabled at the last meeting, motion was made and seconded that they again be tabled, and from then until close of meeting the theme was "open topic" with spirited, exuberant exchanges of conversation.      ....ed.
