President's Message

November 2015

Well, its fall time here in Northern Calif., and we’re finally getting some very nice “fall days”.   I don’t normally drive my car in wet weather, but as I was prepping for our drive to the Delta, the weather folks kept saying “a chance of showers” in  isolated areas throughout  Sacramento Valley throughout the day!  So we ventured out (with the top up of course) and headed south on I-5 meeting with the Central Valley British Club for a joint drive/ lunch to the Delta Area.  Well barely made it down Baseline Rd. when we hit our first shower!!  Of course, if your drive fast enough the rain drops won’t stick to your car, so needless to say I escaped a couple of showers on our way to the meeting point.  It eventually cleared and got relatively warm later on our way home, but I have never subjected my car to the “isolated showers” that we experienced that afternoon.  But we had a fun day, good drive overall, and still haven’t washed the car!!  As to the attached photo, father’s day this past June, and very fortunate that I got to spend it with my boys!!  And it was a HOT summer day in Tahoe!! In fact, that entire weekend was above average for temps in the Tahoe area.
          Katie and Kyle are hosting their first Halloween Rally, so here’s hoping we didn’t lose anyone, or worse, become a “chicken offenda “.  The costumes are annually hilarious, and boy do we get looks from other motorists while we are in route!!!  Look for a full story in next months Oilspots.
            November has a special holiday that we celebrate in our country where we take time to honor our brave and courageous men and women in uniform on Veterans Day, November 11th.  I would also like to extend my special thanks to the members of our club that have donned the uniform of this Great Country.  We are very appreciative of your valuable commitment and honor every day of the year.
             With the Holiday’s quickly approaching, I would like to remind all UBSCC members that the club’s Christmas Dinner meeting will be at Rudy’s Hideaway just off Highway 50, near the corner of Hazel Ave and Folsom Blvd.  December 2nd , watch your e-mails for more info on this. There is a cutoff date for getting your reservation, and order in, so be sure to return it promptly, or contact Katie or myself as soon as we have the flyers and menu selections distributed.

            We have our Club elections for officers at the November meeting.  I’m hoping that we have some “new” folks step up and take the reigns of the club. All new officers shall be seated at the Club Christmas function with all due ceremony, terms shall begin January 1, 2016. Please remember there will not be a club meeting at Mimi’s in December or January.

See you on the road.
Mike Rapoza
