Default Region 18 North Event calendar

Now that Robert is getting the ball rolling with the Irwindale idea, perhaps it is time to start stirring the pot here in Nor-Cal

Here are a few ideas that I want to offer up to the locals. If we get enough interest in any of these events we will formulate a plan to make them happen.

Friendship Day.Redwood City. This car show is open to all, has been around forever and is a friendly gathering of some of the rarest cars you will ever see. Entrance is about $15 and there is no judging. This takes place in April or May.

Old Sacramento, cruise and dine. We did this a few years back and it was a big success. We drove to Old Sacramento and held our own roof top car show and had a great lunch along the river at the crab shack. We can do this any time of year and it might be nice to try this in Aug/Sept.

Tri-Valley Rally. We tried this two years ago but ended up only hosting a river side BBQ. We could host another delta BBQ if you are interested and it would bring out the Livermore/Sacramento members.

Alameda, CA. I have been offered a private tour of the USS Hood, a WWII vintage aircraft carrier. There would be a entrance fee and I would have to determine what that would be. We can do this almost any time of years as well.

7th annual Pismo Family reunion
. This is already in the works but, I want everyone to let me know if they are coming AND what dates they want me to plan. We are looking at early August at this point because that is when the hotel prices go down. Don is working on new items for this year as well. And while I am on the subject, I have found a drag track to continue Da' Queen's cup in Chris' memory. It will however cost me our treasury to make this happen. I would like to know if there is any objection to me using our funds for this item.

And of course,
The seasonal toy drive in November at the cathedral of faith in San Jose.

So those are the Six events that I would be willing to host for this year if there is any interest. I am also open to any ideas that any member has that they would like to host. Please give this agenda some thought and I would like to see 100% of our members in the bay area respond to the local calendar.

I would like to see every member in the state respond to the idea of the Pismo event.

Beyond that, Gilby will be posting his events in Lake County soon and I think Don is working on another event for the Central coast this year. Gale and Eric have posted events in the past and I am sure there will be more information to come from So-Cal as soon as the rivers subside.

So please give us feedback on this and get those El Caminos shined up. Summer is right around the corner and I will have plenty of upgrades to show off this year on my old sled.

MR. Fin and others. It has been very uneventful in the So-Cal area (San Diego). I'll keep everyone posted as to events that come up.

Pismo dates for Terry and I would be like 4-7 AUG or 11-13 AUG. We will not be available 18-26 AUG.

Hi John
Early August for Pismo will be fine with us too.

And by the way the battleship HMS Hood was sank by the Bismarck during WWII.
What you are thinking of is the USS Hornet. I served on her sister ship USS Hancock at the same pier in Alameda and off the coast of Vietnam back in the day

Ed, Thank you for the correction. That wood be awkward to take the club on a tour of the Hood then. I have been told my 59 is a time machine but, I don't think it goes back that far. LOL

Lets change that tour to the USS Hornet. It sounds cooler anyway.

AND PLEASE.EVERYONE ANSWER THE POLL. It will determine the events we sponsor this year.

I see that 8 people have entered the poll. We still have many that have not answered. If you have not answered the poll at this point, please take some time and let me know if you plan to attend events this year. There is a Pismo answer on the poll as well so, if you are from central or So-Cal and are planning on attending the Pismo Family Reunion, please answer that question.

Thanks and I think we are going to have a record year for events and participation. Thank you to Al, Gale, and Robert for getting things going in there area.

Pismo early August, what a birthday surprise! road trip. Glad someone else caught the Hood Hornet.....That would be fun. Maybe we could get to run the cars on the old runways. That is where many episodes of Myth Buster were / are filmed.
