President's Boot - September 2011

15 Sep 2011 9:59 PM | Bill Scott (Administrator)

Now that fall is closing in upon us, the traffic is lighter, the house guest are leaving, you would think it would be a time to relax and take those leisurely drives with the top down, just chill’en. Well no…. it is time to get our planning really under way for our British Legends Weekend. It is now mid September and the BLW is early October, the 7th, 8th & 9th just a few weeks away. A “to do” list has been sent out to many members just to confirm what is covered and what is not. Hopefully we’ll get a good response and the rest we’ll try and cover at the regular meeting September 20th. For those of you who would like to be involved with this year’s event, there is still time. Just call me and we’ll find a spot just right for you.

Some of us did brave hurricane Irene and went to the Triathlon in Maine. Friday was a great day for the drive up and the expansive view over looking Penobscot Bay was breathtaking. Saturday’s activities were under overcast skies and some impressive fog, but although you couldn’t soak in the view, it was a comfortable day for the hill climb, rally and car show. A really good time was had by all, but the best thing was that our club brought home the Dorothy Wiggin Teapot Trophy. Back home to where it belongs, taken away from the Delaware Valley Club. It was noted that the trophy was driven back to the Cape in significant rain and wind, escorted by three MG motor cars; an MGB, MGA and an MG Midget. I should confess that it was riding in a Mini with full rain protection. I bailed on driving the Jag for 5 hours in the rain. I should mention (see how fast I changed the subject) that three member teams did well; The Yellow Cones were proudly worn by Mark Karas & Andrea Berman with 1st place in the rally, Kathy & Joe Rocha placed 3rd and Pam & Mike Dallaire placed 4th . Congrats to them and all who participated making it possible to win the trophy.

There are still plenty of driving days ahead with the Club’s BLW, Martha’s Vineyard trip and the Freez’en Fun Run For Kids still ahead of us. So go to the website calendar and sign up.

Till then,

Bill Scott,
