October 2010 Newsletter

October 2010:

Fall is here and the mod bug is running a muck!  Members are preparing their trucks for winter and getting out and experiencing the joy of driving your truck in this crisp, beautiful weather.  Personally, this is my favorite time of year and I excited to get out and experience all that mother nature has to offer in the next couple of months.


GPAX member’s dues are still being accepted.  I want to thank all of those who have paid thus far for your support and encouragement.

Also, a few GPAX members had a successful camping / birthday trip this past weekend in Franklinville, NY.  Glad you kids had fun!

Meeting Minutes

GPAX officers have been hard at work organizing a GPAX bank account with Wachovia Bank to handle all the financial transactions for member’s dues and merchandise.  Another feat was getting this website up and running.  We are very pleased with all of our supporting members and look forward to gaining many more members in the last quarter of 2010 and in 2011 and beyond.

Dan White & Jerry Chao have stepped in as our two new Sponsorship Coordinators replacing Ben Cooper who moved over to Events Coordinator to replace Mike Meneze who had to step down for personal reasons.

GPAX now has a functional bank account with Wachovia Bank and an active PayPal account to handle all financial transactions. The PayPal is payments@gpaxterra.org and will be used on the website.
