President's Message

April 2015

 It turned spring just the other day, wait, hasn’t it been spring for the past couple of months? Being an East Coast boy, I know what winter months can be like. And my family and friends back in Boston area have been hit with a winter for the record books.  Having been in Nor Cal for 25 years now, I’ve acclimated pretty darn well. As you can see from the pic above, I really enjoy driving my Tiger 10 months of the year.  But I do know that we had better take the boat out very soon, as we will not have pleasant boating after June timeframe !!  Well, then, we’ll have to plan more drives, lunches, tours, and head out to roads less travelled.

              The Snow train to Reno was held over the weekend of March 6-8. Katie led this adventure, and I can’t wait to read about Jerry on the loose in the streets of Reno !!! 

                We had an overcast start to this years St. Patrick’s Day parade, but the sun burned its way thru, and by the 1pm start time, it got very humid (for this area anyway). Everyone managed to escape the slow route without any issues. We had 8 LBC’s all decked out in themed trimmings, and it was estimated that some 10,000 people lined the streets of Old Town Sacramento to watch nearly 55 entries in the parade. We had 5 cars make the trek up the Garden Hwy to Swabbies on the River for lunch. It’s an interesting place. Thanks to those who came out and joined me.  

                We have the April fools rally planned for Sat. March 28th.. We’re meeting in Folsom, Mike Hash and myself are putting this one together. It’s a great route, with some fun along the way. Look for a story in the Oilspots.

                 I would like to remind everyone that we will have our last car show meeting before the big event. It’s going to be held at 4 pm, April 19th at the Thomas’s home. This will be the last meeting for planning and finalizing all details before the stuff it meeting on May 15th, and the Saturday field prep May 16th. After that, the long awaited day when we all spring to action for: May 17th. Show Time!!  Be sure to make an effort to volunteer, the club needs you to pitch in and help out. With your help and dedication the show will again be a great success.

               Beni has a drive to Woodland scheduled for the 11th of this month. Be sure to RSVP to her, so she can get an accurate headcount. Remember to always check the ‘ EVENTS ‘ section on our website for all the details, and watch for those emails.

                Until next time, dust off that car and hope to see you on the road, or at the next club event, or maybe on the lake!
