Read More Council of Coucils Astro January 14th 2018 11:07 pm There are two websites where you can always find the latest information from the host and the board:
- Councilofcouncils.ORG is the board page, where reps and host clubs can get information about the upcoming event, hosting a CofC, becoming a council, and keeping your council information up to date with the CofC board.
- Councilofcouncils.COM is the host page, where everyone attending can get information on the hotel, meeting schedules, activities, etc.
This information is always available on Vanning.com in a permanent, pinned post/topic. Vanning.com also has links back to the above sites to make them easy to find.
All council reps should be looking to these pages for information and updates. You can't rely on just Facebook for your information. Facebook is constantly messing with how page posts appear in your newsfeed, because they think they know what's best for you, and they want us to pay for you to see our updates, so just because it doesn't appear in your feed, doesn't mean it wasn't posted.
We need council reps/officers to be proactive and take the information they find on those pages and share it with their councils so that everyone else is informed.

Read More CLASS ACT Knighty July 17th 2017 8:05 pm When we first started the Class Act events in 1987 Lucy and I decided to sponsor the Best Of Show award....in keeping with our Class theme we bought a genuine silver champagne bucket....The award went to Eddy Fucci and his chopped 4-wheel drive "Zelda"...
Ed was thrilled with the award and kept it for many years on his dining room table.......He was very proud of his trophy - then - his house burned down...........

Read More TROPHIES Knighty July 17th 2017 7:44 pm TROPHIES - and the award ceremony - normally conclude the van shows that we all attend....They can vary in appearance while they fill their duty as awards for a "job well done''
They can take on completely different in
appearances...Some can be the gold plated plastic ones that can be purchased at your local trophy shop,or wall plaques perhaps ordered from that same business.....
One of the awards I like best are the "home - made" creations of vanners such as Kenny from Salt City Vans....I don't recall his last name off the top of my head, but if you know Salt City - you know Kenny.....He has taken on the job for a number of years and this years are over the top....We look forward to next year and what he may come up with.....
Prior to Kenny taking on the task this chore was handled by Dave Senke....It was the year after Pat Turk died and we were awarded the "Best Of Show" in his place.....the year was 1999.....If you ever get up here in the Adirondacks - stop by and see this trophy...It's a Hot Wheel size van carved into stone and mounted on a substantial block of wood........It is the most fantastic trophy you will probably ever see !
