President's Message

April 2014


Although the calendar said it turned spring just towards the end of March, I’ve been hard pressed to take the boat out, while we still have some water in the lakes, or fire up the Tiger and head for some desolate twisty windy roads. This is truly a slap in the face to my family and friends back in New England, who are bracing for another “Nor’easter” (snowstorm)!! Gotta love California weather.

                We had a one of the best days to date for the St. Patrick’s Day parade, clear, sunny and temp was high 70’s!!  We had 7 LBC’s all decked out in themed trimmings, and it was estimated that some 15,000 people lined the streets of Old Town Sacramento to watch nearly 70 entries in the parade. Thanks to those who came out and joined me.  

                We have the April fools rally planned for Sat. March 29th.. we’re meeting up in El Dorado Hills, and I’m sure Tony has some surprises in store. Look for a story in the Oilspots.

Tony and Stephanie are also hosting the Sacramento underground tour on Sun April 6th. I’m looking forward to that, Janine not so much.

                 I would like to remind everyone that the UBSCC car show meeting will be held at 4 pm, April 27th at the Costanzo’s home. This will be the last meeting for planning and finalizing all details before the stuff it meeting on May 16th, and the Saturday field prep May 17th. After that, the long awaited day we all spring to action for, May 18th. 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

               Check the ‘ EVENTS ‘ section on our website for all the details, and watch for those emails. The first 6 months of the year have been planned and are posted.


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

Mike Rapoza
