From The Drivers Seat



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,
John Seim
