  • Late May


    TCMG Loses Long-Time Member

    We were deeply saddened to learn that long-time TCMG member Bob McKarney passed away on May 2.  His good friend Stan Belland broke the news to us and had this to say:

    “Today, May 2, 2017 I lost my dearest friend – Bob McKarney.  He died peacefully this morning after a long, always cheerful battle with emphysema. I will miss him grievously and I’m sure all of you who knew him will too.  He brought me into the club, but other than that, he served the TCMG greatly for many years. He was as quirky, eccentric and fun as the cars we drive, but more comfortable and dependable. I don’t know yet what Nancy has planned, but St. Peter just put on the Willie Nelson music.”

    After 59 years, New Meeting Location Announced

    TC Motoring Guild has held its monthly meetings in the same room for the past 59 years.  Sadly, the building has been sold and our last meeting at this location was held on March 28.  An exhausting search was conducted for a new location that is centrally located to the majority of our active members and caters to our needs.  The chosen location is in Studio City.  Information about this new location can be found by clicking the “About TCMG” tab at the top of the screen and selecting “Monthly Meetings”.  Be sure to attend the next meeting at our new home, and bring a TC if you can!

    Member Video

    TCMG member Charlie Williams of Redding, California made this wonderful video of his local area.  We hope this virtual tour with Charlie and TC6126 will inspire you to fire up your own TC and take a similar day trip!

    Charlie writes: “I read with envy in each TC Motoring Guild issue about the neat rides those of you in Southern Ca enjoy together and it got me thinking.  Perhaps there is a way I could share one of my drives with all of you.  So, last Sunday I attached some of my video equipment to the car and set off on one of my jaunts.  Hope you enjoy the ride.”

    Poppy Tour Video

    TCMG member Jim Crandall just sent this video he created of our recent tour to the California Poppy fields in Lancaster.  Although Jim didn’t have his TC with him on this event, he was able to capture the fun through his video camera, and included some still shots as well as a brief shot from the cockpit of the Simmons TC on a dirt track through the desert.

    Our next monthly meeting will be held on May 23rd at our new location in Studio City.  Our evening program will be a special presentation by TCMG member Sandra Loe on a form of artistry you may not have seen before!

    “Gourds – the who, what, where, why, when, how, and how much in 30 minutes or less.  I will fill you in on the history, types, uses, and techniques for decorating gourds.  Don’t miss learning everything you need to know about this plant that has been around since prehistoric time.  If you are a doodler then you have the creative ability for this craft and there may be a new hobby in your future.”

    April Recap: 25 members and guests were present for our first meeting at our new home in Studio City.  Four TCs were present driven by Loe, Simmons, Hanes and Einhorn, plus an MGA driven by Linda Simmons.
