Well, its been a real slow, quiet summer on the UBSCC events
calendar. In fact, after attending the Tigers United show at Tahoe in
June, I hadn’t driven my car until the club meeting in August!!! So,
what do you say folks, “lets get the keys in the ignition, and get our cars
out of the garage. I know we’ve had some hot spells, and folks do plan
vacations over the summertime, but we have some great cooler weather
creeping up on us, and some really good events on the calendar.
The final cruise nite of the season in Auburn is on Friday Sept. 11th. There’s a great event on the
weekend of Sept 12 + 13 at Morgan Hill. I have attended this show in the past, and it is a very well organized
event, and the caliber of LBC’s is outstanding. At the end of the month, Sat. the 26th we will be venturing out
to Ione for a picnic lunch and then a tour of the Preston Castle. I’ve heard this is a great historic building and
lots of history. Don’t miss this. Also on this day is the Ironstone Vineyard Car show. Several UBSCC members,
who have displayed their vehicles there in the past, have won awards. A very good winery, and an excellent
car show. Take the drive down and check it out.
I’m working on adding a couple of events on the calendar to finish out this year. What you ask, well…
put this one down as a definite, the Jim Messenio Tedy Bear Run on Sat. Oct 3rd. We always have great participation
at this one. On Sat. Oct.17 we will be joining forces with the Central Valley British Club, and travelling
on a Delta run. The following Saturday, 24th we will be rallying up the hills on Ken Freeze’s run to
Sorenson’s resort. This is one I could use that new 20gal. fuel cell.!! Possibly catch some fall colors somewhere
along this drive!!! Then to finish the month we will have the annual UBSCC Halloween Rally. Can’t
wait for that one… gotta get the imagination going for a costume…. Hummm. . . If you have a suggestion for
an event, or a place / drive you would like to share with the club, let me know. I’d love to hear from you. Remember
to always check the Events Section of our website for the latest information and details.
I would like to thank Ken for keeping our website current and informative. I would like to challenge
all of you to come out to at least two events before we settle into years end.
Anyway, gotta find some reason, anything to get the kitty out of the barn.
Drive hard, have fun, and be safe. See you on the road.
