February was a very unpredictable, yet adventurous and fun. I finally got the Tiger out to stretch its legs. The weather has been above normal, and great for top down cruises!! I had to burn off the ½ tank of fuel that’s been sitting idle for the past 8 or so weeks. I even got the wife to go along, I promised we’d stop at a winery!! Works every time !!! The pic attached is from the sunset ride home! To start out the month: it was a great win for my New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. !!! They sure stole that one. Then we had our normal meeting venue “stolen” from us, and I attempted to hold a meeting at another location, which only worked for about 10 minutes. Sorry. The Winter Breakfast gathering drew a hugh number of folks to Venita Rhea’s in Rocklin. I was not expecting the turnout that we had. Thanks everyone! We went go-cart racing at K1 Speed Center, and everyone had their pedal to metal trying for the quickest lap. Look for a write-up in the next Oilspots.
We will be kicking off March events with a ride aboard the Snow Train – to Reno. Katie is hosting this excursion, and its becoming a seasonal event.
I’ll be hosting this years St. Patrick’s Day Parade to be held Sat. March 14th . The parade takes place on the streets of Old Town Sacramento. So grab your green top hats, shamrocks and get your car decorated. Our cars always get received very well throughout the parade route. We’ll be taking a drive up the Garden Hwy after the parade route, for a bite to eat at Swabbies on the River.
Finishing out the month we’ll be taking to the streets again for a Fool’s run. April Fools run that is. Mike Hash and myself will be putting together all the details, a few surprises, games and jokes.. that will be held on Sat. March 28th.
An event schedule for the first 6 months of this year will be posted on the web site under the events listings very shortly. You can also find it monthly in your copy of Oilspots
A reminder to all of the members out there that have not sent in your dues, please do so as soon as you can. Katie would like to get this year’s roster completed and sent out very soon.
Planning for the UBSCC Car Show is well under way. Now is the time to get with Jerry Costanzo, and see where you can best pitch in and help get this year’s show on the right track. As club members, this is the time to step up and help in any way you can.
… see you on the road!
