  •  Sunday August 28 9:30 AM start:  Bodywork and metal work Tech Session – Jerry Costanzo and Tony Pantoja.  Sign up tonight.  RSVP required.  Tony explained that we’ll do some welding, shrinking, stretching, hammer and dolly work, and maybe some sanding, bondo, and painting too. 
  • Pat announced that the Grapes of Wrath will not be held this season. 

Grand Poohbah (Rich Thomas)
Rich did not have any Grand Poohbah awards this month, but he announced that he and Pat are engaged and he will soon be selling his house and moving to Nevada City.  He will have to curtail his participation in the club (due to distance) and will be handing off the Grand Poohbah role to someone new. 

For the Good of the Club

  • Tim Waller mentioned a fun drive on December 26th (Boxing Day drive) that starts in Sonoma.  A tour through the countryside and surely some good eats too.  Not just for British cars.
  • Tim also mentioned that there was a Saturday Cars and Coffee at the Milagro Shopping Center.  Ken Montgomery said he thought that it had been moved to the CA Auto Museum.  If interested, contact Ken or Tim.
  • Zack said Hot August Nights is going on now through Sunday and there is an auction at the Grand Sierra Resort that is a lot of fun.  He and other Reno Car Club members are driving across the podium with the cars for auction
  • Zack invited members to the Reno British Car Club first show on October 15th.  He said they are nice folks and he hoped some members could make the trek.
  • The Ferndale show is on September 11th.  The city is welcoming.  Previous members Kelly and Tony Martinis attend this every year and rave about it. 
  • The Niello Concours de Elegance this year will be on October 2, 2022 and will be “Celebrating the British Marques”.   Entry deadline is end of August. 
  • Via ZOOM, Bill and Annabelle announced that they will be at Ironstone this year – this is about their 20th time to participate.  They also said that they will be celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary and will have cake, so stop by and see them. 
  • Dave Lawson showed a wood part from the door of his MG.  Due to enlarged wood screw holes, he demonstrated how threaded inserts could be used (furniture hardware) and then you could use a machine screw to attach the door hardware. 
  • Via ZOOM, Joe Cain offered his house for a club get-together and was hoping another club member would be able to sponsor a drive and then he would open his home for member visits (and maybe lunch?).
  • Via ZOOM, Kim and Ian said hello to all.  And Kim recommended that we look into better AV equipment so that ZOOM members can hear better and so they can participate in the call (via speakers).  Pat will look into this (and consult Ken). 

The meeting adjourned at 7:37 PM
Next Meeting Date/Location:  Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at 7:00 PM at Brookfields Restaurant, Rancho Cordova
