As of now our first event of 2015, the Boulder Dam Brewery Run, is in the bag and, I don’t know how, but this
event always turns out some beautiful weather. We had about 11 LBCs plus some other stuff too, including
Drew’s Miata. I think Drew and Jonas were the only ones to brave putting the top down; however; many more could have....
because it was so nice. These British car tops just do not jump up and down by themselves. For example, I timed Drew in his
car and his top goes up or down in about 10 seconds, all from inside the car with “Armstrong” power. The thing
does not leak much either, imagine that.
Speaking of 2015 events, our Events Coordinator, Bill, is always on the lookout for hosts. We have
some events already thought up and are always looking for new ideas. Some of the events require minimal
coordination - maybe a phone call or two, while others don’t require even a phone call. We always
like to have pictures and a little write-up for the Spanner, too. The whole idea is to get you involved
so people get to know you and create greater friendships. Please be ready to step up at the January meeting.
Speaking of the January meeting, you will not want to miss out. I have the “Shirt Guy” coming to show us what
he has and take orders. We do not do this often, so make sure to be there.
On a somber note, a few of us made it
to Ed Underwood’s funeral service. It was a lovely service full of great stories and boundless love and appreciation.
Gloria and Ed have been members of the BACLV for a long time, and Ed will be greatly missed. This car club is unique in that
it is far from just a guy thing. We are fortunate to have everything the ladies bring to this organization, and often they
find themselves more involved than most of the boys. That being said, Gloria, we hope to see you soon.
