June 22, 2024

To All:

 

Rich Furhmann mentioned a gathering that may appeal to a whole bunch of us. On Saturday, June 22, the community of Auberry is having a car show/craft show and a general good time. I talked to the lead lady, Kimberly, who is organizing the show. She extended an invitation to the VBAC, figuring the Brit cars would be a nice contrast to the Detroit Iron that she is anticipating. She is asking if the club could make it on site at 8:30 a. m. to be in place for the official start of 9:00 a.m., lasting until 1:00 p.m. For those inclined and willing to get an early start, we can meet @ Red Robin and grab some breakfast before the climb up 168.

 

This would be an nice, country get together, similar to the feeling at the Scottish Games. For those that like to show the Beasties, check the box; for those that like to drive the Beasties across foothill curves, hills and dales, ditto. It should be a 'beat the heat' run with the ambient temps being a tad cooler and we won't be there that long. Everything will be finished at 1:00 rather than 3:00 or 5:00. There will be a live band (don't know if CW or country rock or something else).  Fresh produce (think farmers' market) & snow cones are available. Kimberly would like to know how many cars would be showing up so she can lay out her parking area and she is asking for names of people, the year, and vehicle. She will have special placards made for us and there will be prizes for quote: "Best, Oldest, Ugliest" vehicle.

 

I haven't checked Facebook, Google, or anything else to check any other details. I wanted to make sure the membership knew about this event ASAP. Kimberly gave me her phone number, 559-392-2775, in case anyone would like to contact her directly. This sounds like a fun time to set the banner and a Union Jack in the foothills.

 

Let me know if interested.   Morris Garagian
