    By the time that you are reading this, it will be just a few days until the May Annual Meeting when we will hold our elections including the office of president. Since I am not running for a third term, this is my last “Message” as president. I have mixed feelings as it has been a good two year experience with many rewarding moments, one in which I have seen much change in the club as it grows and matures during the 12 years since formation. I think change, although sometimes seemingly hard, is really a good thing for an organization, keeps it fresh and flexible allowing it to meet the desires of the new and expanding membership. I’ll still have my hand in as I will be sitting on the BoG as a past president. I think this role is to help me step down gradually, but also to be there to assist the new president in assuming the responsibilities of the office.

    I have my own way of stepping down; Mary and I are leaving for our own driving tour of Scotland early Monday morning following the annual meeting. Probably not too many overseas calls to ask for pointers on how to do what’s next! Or at least that is what I am hoping. I call it a real get away! A clean break! …We have toured Ireland where Mary has background, so this year we will do Scotland as I have some Scot in my back ground. Castles, kilts, bag pipes and history all will be on our agenda for a much anticipated vacation.

    Just an additional word or two about the annual meeting at the West Wareham Elk’s Lodge on May 5th; I hope we have a good turnout for the meeting. If this early warm spring continues, it should be a great drive in our LBCs. There is a large sized parking lot where we can have a nice showing of cars. We will not only hold the elections, but we will award some “Toolships” to the recipients, vote on some other business issues and make some additional acknowledgements during the meeting. So I encourage everyone to plan on attending your club’s annual meeting.

    The Tech Session at Charlie Bohm’s house, the Safety Fast at Paul Hinchcliffe’s garage as well as the Brewster in Bloom parade on Sunday April 29th will all be behind us as April ends, but there are plenty more events ahead. The “A” Team event is up next following the Annual Meeting, so Just a reminder that you can check on all events right on the homepage under the calendar listing, so please check there often as to not miss out on what is happening in your club.

    It has been a good run for me these past two years and I, along with all of you, will be looking to support the new president in the year ahead.

    Till then,

    Bill Scott

    President, CCBCC

    Flowers and cars both got an early start this season. We’ve had summer like weather in late winter and winter weather at the official start of spring! Cold this morning but it is said to warm up again in a day or so. Who knew, but we could have gotten the driving season off to an earlier start this year. I did drive to the March meeting with top down on a rather warm evening and an enjoyable night drive home listening to the peepers singing all along the way.

    We did hold our winter social event on March 10th under a new name, Motor Madness. We had a big turnout which included some new members and everyone had a good time catching up on the latest activities we’ve all experienced since the holidays, cruises enjoyed and cars readied for the season. Pam and Mike Dallaire decorated the hotel meeting room appropriately for a British Car Club social event. A gallery like display of British car etchings on the walls around the room. The table centerpieces each had photos of British pubs with 3D stand up photos of various members’ cars. Also in the center table displays were beautiful roses for each of the ladies to take home from the event. After enjoying a social hour followed by a delicious dinner with member friends, Dennis Sokol kicked off our traditional Yankee Swap for a little competitive fun over a few prized and well traded gifts. We thank Pam & Mike Dallaire, Donna Lynn Greene and all those involved with planning and making the event a very enjoyable evening.

     We should expect a good turnout of LBCs at the Hinchcliffe garage in Lakeville for the April 21st Safety Fast Inspection. Thanks to Ken Stone’s advance media coverage, we may have LBC’s from many other clubs from around the surrounding areas. It is always good to start the driving season with confidence knowing that all is well as you take to the roads. Not to mention that it is just plain fun to check out the cars (especially someone else’s car), use some of the dated diagnostic equipment and to sample some of Paul’s special hot dogs, yummm!

     The Brewster in Bloom Parade is coming up April 29th which is another early season driving opportunity. Many club members have participated over the past number of years. It is good for some members to have events in the lower Cape area close to home, but it also affords a nice drive down the scenic Old Kings Highway for many members from off Cape locations. So sign up on the events section on the home page and turn out for a fun event.

    Just a couple of reminders; the April 17th regular meeting at the Sandwich BBC, and the Annual Meeting will be held at the West Wareham Elks Lodge on May 5th. We are hoping to have many members in attendance for our election of officers and BoG members. Please plan on attending. The lodge has a generous parking lot, so put the top down and enjoy the drive.

    All of these events and more can be found on our web site under “Events” on the Home Page. Just by clicking on the listed event, you can read the details about the event and register to attend right there on the site. What could be easier?

    I encourage you to do so and we are looking forward to seeing you at these upcoming club events.

    Till then,

    Bill Scott

    The March 20th Monthly Meeting Minutes have been posted to the members only section of the web-site.

    Last week we received the attached letter from Sheldon Steele of the Larz
    Anderson Auto Museum, a/k/a the Museum of Transportation, in Brookline, MA,
    and offered to publicize his request.

    The Museum is putting together an exhibit inspired by a 1946 industrial
    exposition in the UK called “Britain Can Make It” and the accompanying car
    show in Earls Court, London.  It was at this time, as Sheldon’s letter
    explains, that many Americans became aware of the many uniquely British
    products available for importing, including of course the sports cars and
    stately saloons that we have come to admire, own, and restore.

    In the spirit of Earls Court, the Museum’s exhibit will feature cars of the
    immediate postwar period, from 1946 through the 1950s.  The Museum is
    looking for vehicles to put on display and it seemed logical to us to
    contact local clubs as possible sources.  As Sheldon explains, the Museum is
    flexible as to how long the car will remain on display or any other owner
    requirement.  That means if the owner commits to lending his or her LBC, the
    car does not have to be tied up for the entire season.

    Sheldon’s letter gives all the contact information needed to find out more
    details.
