    TC Motoring Guild Rides Again!

    On Saturday, March 20, TC Motoring Guild held its first group event since the pandemic halted in-person activities one year prior.  15 members and guests with six TCs participated in the event, which was originally scheduled to visit the California Poppy Reserves.  Due to high winds, bitter cold and no poppies, a change was made the day before the event and the group instead headed west from our meeting point in Castaic.  Driving along scenic roads, our new destination was Heritage Valley where we viewed captive flowers instead of wild ones at a nursery with an astounding array of rose varieties.  A socially distanced picnic lunch topped off the day at a nearby park, in perfect weather. 

    Continuing with our Covid-safe activities, April saw an even larger turnout with 28 members and eight TCs taking a historic home tour through the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, followed by a “picnic beneath the oaks” at Gene Olson’s residence.  It’s good to be back in the saddle!

     

     

    meetings

    Our general meeting on May 25 meeting will be held online using the Zoom application.  The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM Pacific Time. (You can log on starting at 5:45 PM).  You can participate using any computer or device with the free Zoom software installed.  If you require assistance installing Zoom, contact David Edgar.

    Our program for the evening will be a slide show by members Joyce and David Edgar with accompanying information on GoF West, an annual all-M.G. event the club has participated in several times.  The talk will include the history of GoF and what kind of activities are held during the 5-day event.  GoF West has been made a TCMG event this year so if you plan to participate then you will want to attend this meeting.  Shown also will be some bonus photos from 2020 events that have not been seen before.

    Note that anyone making a simulated journey to the meeting in a TC by driving a minimum of 10 miles on the day of the meeting will receive a point toward the Sargent Award.

    April recap: 28 Members attended our April meeting.  3 TCs were driven a simulated trip to the meeting of 10 miles or more.  Those who drove were Lemieux, Loe and Simmons.
