In August, the club had another driving
event, this time to Rancho Los Alamitos in
Long Beach. It was well attended by club
members. The September event at the Irvine
Duck Club has been cancelled. Barbara
Inskeep has another driving event planned,
to keep members, and their cars, out and on
the roads, during these trying times.
The garage tech session for September is
currently still a go, unless told otherwise
by the state. Location is Jerry & LaVerne
Felper’s home. Topic is the Annual Safety
Check. Everyone attending will be subject to
a temperature scan.
The program for the September 5th meeting is
“Tanks.” Conceived by the British during
World War I, the tank initially was a
drawing by Leonardo da Vinci. Hopefully,
David Moore will be able to tell me how to
do a Powerpoint presentation on ZOOM.
The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be a
challenge to planning events. The Huntington
Beach Concours d’Elegance had be rescheduled
for September, but now has been cancelled
for 2020, with a return in 2021. The Olde
Ship Fullerton is open now from Tuesdays
through Sundays. The more they get
back on their feet, the better the prospect
for reopening the Santa Ana location.
We used to do a lot of breakfast runs.
Breakfast runs can be added to a month’s
already scheduled event, as not everyone can
make the monthly event date. It can be a
driving tour, or a rally with questions.
They are easy to put on. Step up to the
plate, and plan on putting one on
Volunteerism is the key to an
organization’s success! As the Star
Trek crew gave way to Star Trek: The Next
Generation, the next generation of VMG
volunteers needs to come forward. Everyone
has an excuse why they cannot be more
involved. The “I just want to sit back and
not get involved” plan is really taking a
toll. Please consider taking a board
position for at least one year. While it
looks like we have a lot going on, we can
always use club members to volunteer.
Until next month,
