Guest Speaker: Robert Klemer Enterprises – Robert moved to Lake Tahoe from Brooklyn in 1982. He was commuting to work at Victors Auto Sales in Placerville and two month later he got a job offer at South Shore Motors here in Lake Tahoe. He was with them for 21 years until they closed. Two months later he went to work for Cardinale Way. 1990 was a good year for Robert; he was the national Subaru dealer. He has sold approximately 3000 cars since he began his career. Buying a car is easier than people think, but the bigger the dealership the more frustrating it is. The advantage for you to buy at Cardinale way is that Robert gets paid a flat rate, when other dealerships pay dealers by commission, so there is no incentive for Robert to sell you a car at a higher price. Robert can get many other brands of cars, as well as the Toyotas for great prices. Our Guest France Carreau stated that “buying a car from Robert was such a pleasant experience…she wishes she could do it over again and again”. Freight on cars is averaged out everywhere, so if you live by a factory you pay the same amount of freight as someone who lives across the country. Sales tax is based on where you live, not on where you purchase a car. Buying a car is the only product where you get to know the factory price, so if you want the best deal you should go see Robert. Robert is available at Cardinale Way Toyota from 10-7. Tuesday through Saturday!

Guest Speaker: Sherri Hughes – Max Design. Sherri brought a gift basket prize drawing which contained a gift certificate, chocolate, and a bottle of wine. Our guest Paula Peterson won it. Sherri became a full time graphic designer 8 years ago in Brookings, OR. She has worked in Portland, Cresent City, and Seattle since 1987. Sheri has always loved art. When she first started out she worked for a news paper called Belleview Journal. Now Sherri also does web site design. When she designs logos for your company she not only gives you it in color but also in black and white! She makes sure you get all logo file types, especially an EPS file, so you can size your logo, and it will not have a pixilation problem using a minimum of 300 DPI. She also makes a 200 DPI logo for newspaper advertising. Sherri designs everything from wine labels and book covers, to flyers and business cards.

New Business: Paula Peterson spoke to our members about Face Book. A discussion took place that Face Book is a place to give, not a place to take. Promoting the benefits of becoming a member of our group, thanking each other for referrals and posting a welcome to our guests and new members are good ideas for the LTBRN Face Book page.
Carolyn can set up a Face Book feed on member websites.
To keep an eye on LTBRN Face Book postings, Carolyn is going to set up a dummy e-mail address, so postings can go to many of our members for comments or deletions.
Maggie from Big Blue Spa/Pool Services & Repair was voted in as our newest member. Welcome Maggie!

Guest Speaker: Scott Mara – Good Dog Training. Scott has been training animals for over 15 years now. He has extensive experience training marine animals including dolphins and whales. Scott believes in using a scientifically based approach to training. He uses “positive reinforcement” methods to create a working relationship between you and your dog. No choke collars! As he knows from working with very large marine animals, the only way to get them to cooperate is with positive reinforcement, since there is no way to punish killer whales into behavior modification. Good Dog treats all problems related to dogs and can teach any behavior including, but not limited to: Obedience training; come, heel, and stay. Behavior modification, including: housebreaking, chewing, jumping, aggression, and separation anxiety. Scott offers 1-1&1/2 hour private lessons for $65. He also offers 21 day boarding training program to modify your dogs behavior problems for you; and he has 6 week group classes held at Tahoe Best Friends for $120 on Wednesdays for puppies and Thursday nights for dogs beginning at 6:15p.m. For more information contact Scott at 530-318-9436 or e-mail him.
