July Presidents Boot

14 Jul 2011 1:47 PM | Bill Scott (Administrator)

Whew! Hard to believe that July is half over. Where is the summer going? Events are lining up on top of each other and Aunt Millie from Iowa is calling saying that she wants to come to the Cape for another visit, “What weekend is free?” Well Aunt Millie, the answer is none! I am booked solid for the rest of the driving season. It seems like we wait through the long winter and the never ending dreary spring here on the Cape, and suddenly summer is here with all too many events and obligations happening at once. It is hard to prioritize, to pick and choose the events in which you really want to participate, and reluctantly, you have to forgo  some that you would really like to have attended, but you just can’t be in two places at once.


You know, the calendar on our new web site is really a great tool for helping one sort all this out. (You knew this plug was coming didn’t you?) It is easy, just type in www.capecodbritishcarclub.org , click the home page and scroll down to event listings. You can see a list or you can click to view the calendar page, either way, when you want to learn more, just click on the event and all the details show up. There is even a place to register right there, it is that easy. So no excuses, let’s start signing up and make each event a success. Getting to know and spend time with your fellow members is one of the better things about this club, great people and great cars equal great fun!

Speaking of fun, we had a great time following the regular meeting with the ice cream run led by members Les & Cynthia Frank. We had a wonderful summer evening’s drive to the Polar Cave and with the club’s 50-50 take, bought ice cream for everyone! How sweet is that?.../…The Factory 5 tour, road trip and backyard picnic, hosted by Charlie & Karen Bohm, was an informative, relaxing and very enjoyable day spent with members and friends. …/…Although I didn’t attend (other priorities prevented), the 4th of July “endurance” parade in Bourne was a test of LBC’s and heat. Bob Vogel reports that Lotus and Jaguar prevails. …/… Kathy & Joe Rocha revived and redefined the VoS event by adding a charitable cause to raise funds for the Plymouth and Fairhaven animal shelters. June and Mike Daley mapped out a scenic road trip to enjoy the RI watery coast line, a winery visit and to end at the Rocha’s home for a back yard picnic. This event did take place under a sad note, as we learned that morning of the passing of our club’s Vice President’s wife, Pat Frett, just the night before the event. They were planning on enjoying the event with us that Saturday morning. Of course they were in our hearts and minds throughout the day and some expressed thoughts that maybe next year it should become the Pat Frett memorial run.


There are many more events for the rest of the season, so sign up and get involved and enjoy our club activities and friendships.           

Till then,

Bill Scott,
