From The Drivers Seat



February started off with the annual Super Bowl party, at Pete & Fran Thelander’s home, in Westminster. That was the event for the month. Conrad and Laurie Lyon-Diaz have come up with another event. A visit to Evan’s Gunsmithing and Shooters World, followed by lunch at the Katella Grill, will take place on Saturday, March 3rd. The following Saturday has the annual London to Brighton Run, ending at the McClain’s in San Juan Capistrano.
St. Patrick’s Day is on the 17th, with a garage tech session at 9:00 a.m., and a tour of the Hilbert Museum, with lunch at Ruby’s restaurant at the train station to go to afterwards, as well as a convenient start point. David Moore set up this event. It was supposed to be in April, the exhibit would be gone after March 19. And, Barbara Gallegos organized a group event for Friday, March 2, on the Orange Wine Trolley.
Garage Tech Sessions started up again, on February 10. Jerry Felper gave a session, on starters and grounds. The March 17 garage tech session will be at Randy Ema’s shop in Orange, near Ruby’s, as well as the Hilbert Museum.
There also has been talk of a beach party, as  well as some other possible events, but nothing firmed up at this time. Contact Rick Pullen or Dave Gaston, if you have an idea for an event. They will help you to put one on. Barbara Inskeep has a few ideas, and has secured event dates for them. 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.
To add to that, every Saturday (just about) at 12:30 p.m., a group of members meet at the Jagerhaus in Anaheim for lunch. A great brain trust,  and the greatest topics of discussion. (other restaurant patrons have told us so). Jerry Felper, Carl Cederstrand, Gary Crow, Charles Lusch, and  myself generally attend. And, twice a month, at the Olde Ship in  Santa Ana, we get together for dinner, on Mondays at 6:30 p.m.
Volunteerism is the key to an organization’s success! We are not in need of anyone to fill a board position right now. Positions could be available next year. As the Star Trek crew gave way to Star Trek: - The Next Generation, the next generation of VMG volunteers needs to come forward. 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. Positions are opening up on the board, and we would love to see new faces become active there.
Rick Pullen and Dave Gaston have events, that just need someone to host. Kaz and Judy Bielinski are working on a driving event for the year 2018. Rick Pullen and Dave Gaston can help you plan a driving event. Just ask them.

Until next month, 

John Seim
