      i just got off of the phone with the secretary of the western automotive journalists, of which my employer is president, who has told me that we are going to have several available seats for a special appearance by bob lutz, the head of general motors, who will speak on the future of the automotive industry.

      this is a very rare opportunity to talk directly to the man who pulls the strings of the largest car manufacturing company in the country.  it's also going to be a wonderful dinner, of which the cost is being offset by the folks at www.autochannel.com  the regular fee for a dinner like this is $55 (i know this because i've been working directly to put this event together).  the non-member fee is only $40 for filet mignon, grilled chicken of fresh grilled salmon with all the trimmings.

      since most of us drive to the caches we find, i thought some of you may be interested in joining us.

      you'll find the details below.

      feel free to join us and, please, tell jon that monty sent you!

      i think there are some geocaches in the area? ;-D

      Greetings Members of WAJ and Industry,

      When the history of the automotive industry at the end of the 20th
      Century and the beginning of the 21st is written, one person is going to
      deserve a chapter of his own -- /*Bob Lutz*/. The man who was a key
      member of the team that revived Chrysler in the 1990s is now engaged in
      what has to be */the biggest challenge of his extensive career --
      turning the largest car company in the world-General Motors /*- into a
      company that makes cars and trucks consumers want and are willing to pay
      a premium for, while probably shrinking its work force and dealer body.
      It's a challenge that many who were already past retirement age might
      have passed on, but not Bob Lutz. Meet the man who was behind the Dodge
      Viper, a man who can drive anything from a huge 1950s Chrysler 300 to
      piloting his own ex-Eastern European Military Jet. Did, and does, he
      really have the authority and the cohones to cancel near-complete
      programs that he felt were not right ? Has he exercised that power ?
      He's always quotable because he's not afraid to say what he thinks, so
      bring your notepads and tape recorders. History will be made!

      House Salad
