From the Editors

We started out February with only the Supper Bowl very early and no other event until the London to Brighton Run late March. Well, that sure changed in a hurry. Dave Gas-ton decided to reprise the Meal and Wheels Tour for the last Saturday in February and Paul Simon has agreed to host a visit to “Randy’s” Drag Racing Museum in Lake Elsinore. See the flyer on page 17 for particulars.
Barbara and Lynn Inskeep have arranged for us to go back to the Merle Norman, Nethercutt Collection and Museum. This is an event that the club did many years ago. Not only is there a wonderful collection of cars, but there are mechanical musical instruments, period furniture, Lalique glass radiator caps, a locomotive and more.. It is a bit of a trek to get to Sylmar but well worth it in the end.
For the record, the Meals & Wheels Run was just as great as the original some five years ago. The folks enjoyed breakfast at IKEA in Costa Mesa and lunch at COSTCO in Irvine with a very pleasant tour through the back roads of Orange County squeezed in between. All this for a cost of $5.00 per couple


We should have photos in next month’s Octagon Topics.
Meanwhile (as Steven Colbert would say)….meanwhile, we are approaching the end of another fiscal year, and you know what that means. ….That’s right, dues are due and election of officers.
Taking the dues issue first….most of you should find a self-addressed envelope in your newsletter. Simply write a check and return to our Membership Chairman, Barbara, at the club PO box. A few of you have already renewed, and I hope we have correctly omitted the envelope for you.
Moving on to elections….There is always a need for volunteers to fill the office and committee chairs. So why not help the club by offering to serve in one of these capacities. This is your club and you can only get out of it as much as you are willing to give. Many current office holders have served for a number of years. I’m sure they would welcome a chance to “retire”, seeing the club in good hands.
