President's Message

May 2015


 So I had a very important (well I think it is) milestone birthday last month. I turned 60, and although I don’t feel my age, and lots of people tell me I don’t look my age, this one had an effect on me more than any other in the past.  I had the need to get away for a while, so we packed up and headed for the ocean. Got in my share of golfing, fishing, and a few “other activities”, that certainly helped in helping me put things in perspective. After-all, I’ve certainly had my share of positives over the past few months: both my boys have moved to Sac. Area, we’re going to be “GRANDPARENTS” in October!!, and my youngest proposed and will be getting married next year.. Certainly lots of great times to look forward to..


                This month is the All British Sports Car Show that we are sponsoring at the Dixon Fairgrounds. The club is working hard to make this year’s show a successful, and enjoyable event for participants as well as visitors.  We would like to get our members to step forward and pitch in and help with all the preparations needed to pull this show off.  Where help is needed:


1.    The stuff it get-together on Friday May 15th will be held at Zack’s garage which is on Horseshoe Bar Road in Loomis. (6280 Evans Drive. Loomis) He’ll be sending out directions closer to the show. Also look on our website.!  It’s close to the intersection of Horseshoe Bar and I80. Give Katie a call at 916-847-6629, or Jerry Costanzo @916-652-4537 to let them know you will be there. Also let them know if you are bringing a side dish, salad or dessert for dinner.

2.    The Dixon Fairgrounds Field setup; signs, flags, field striping, canopies and other assorted chores will be done on Saturday May 16th, starting at 1pm, followed by a dinner for all volunteers. This is usually a good time to relax and admire the day’s work. Again, Contact Jerry or Katie Costanzo 916-652-4537 to let them know if you’re helping, and what you’ll be bringing for dinner.

3.  Day of the show May 17th; participant entrance gate, Contact Howard Shempp to volunteer and help get the cars through registration and onto the field. We will need lots of folks to help on the field parking crew.


If you have registered your car or just coming out to see the show, please make it a point to help out anywhere you can. The more hands the less work!


                 A couple of other events happening this month:  Kim is sponsoring a drive on Sat. May 2, to Davis visiting the Arboretum, after an award winning burger lunch at “Broderick Roadhouse”.


Ken Freeze is plotting a run up to Sorensen’s resort, up Tahoe way: here’s some of the details:

Leave Placerville Mel's diner at 9:30. Round trip Placerville to Placerville of 150 miles.

Omo Ranch road to Highway 88 going. Potty and view point at Shot Rock.

Mormon Immigrant Trail coming back. Sound interesting??  I’m in…  any reason or chance I can get the Tiger out and stretch its legs. . . well that’s a good thing!!


                If your coming out to the show, have a great time, enjoy the company, and if you should see me wandering around, stop and say “hi” . Remember, life’s a journey, find someone to share it with, and enjoy the ride.

Hope to see you on the road.
