We recently returned from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk run and I am happy to report we all had a great time. Five 4th generation Trans Ams participated on the run and we hooked up with Dante and his Vette in Milpitas. In attendance were Julie Haddick and daughter, Leo, Kevin, Jim and his son Gio and daughter Gabby, and Terry with her granddaughter Sarah. We actually did not get to Santa Cruz until about 2:30 because we had to meet with several of the members on the way there. Most of us left at random times to head on home and rain was never a factor until I encountered some drizzle on the way home. It was a pleasure to meet new member Kevin whom I think will be a gung ho and enthusiastic new member of TACA, GSC.

We have had a problem with our Message Board, actually it was a major problem! The TACA, GSC message board was hacked on March 30th and 31st. Apperently the hacker exploited a flaw in the security of the message board data base and changed the moderator password (my password) and locked me out and put the message board offline with a message saying it was hacked by so and so. Just wonderful! Anyhow, since the software was free there was no free upgrade to patch the hole to prevent any further abuse by hackers, and as a result I had my brother in law migrate all the data to different software. All the user passwords should work. The only difference is the different appearance of the message board. On behalf of TACA, GSC, I apologize for any problems this incident may have caused.

It seems the club has forgotten to welcome some new members to the club. Robert Olsen and Linda Olsen joined the club last September of 2004 after we met them at the POCI Regionals in Reno, Neveda. Rob and Linda own a car that my 14 year old son Giovanni wants for his his first car. The car happens to be a 2002 "Collectors Edition" convertible. For those who are unaware, the 2002 "Collectors Editions" were the "last of the breed" in regards to 2002 being the last year of Firebird and Camaro production. The "Collectors Editions" were painted yellow with black rims, a black rear bumper and in the case of the hard tops, a black roof. On behalf of TACA we would like to welcome Robert and Linda Olsen and their "2002 Coolectors Edition" converible.
