Late April

Posted by Steve Simmons on April 29, 2015


Only a few days left to sign up for our 2nd annual Wine Country Weekend in May. If you haven’t yet signed up, do it today! See the Calendar Page for more information.

Special thanks to David Spiegel for hosting the April meeting at his home, and for showing us the remarkable restoration of his MG SA Saloon!

Check out our Regalia Page for new regalia items! We have just added two jigsaw puzzles to our regalia offerings. These are the same puzzles featured in our annual Puzzle Night competitions! They feature the lineups from our 2013 and 2014 TCMG / ARR Conclaves. Quantities are limited, so buy yours before they are all gone!


 mt-wilson-truckAt our next monthly meeting on May 26, our special guest is Mike Simmons, president of Astronomers Without Borders and founder of the Mount Wilson Observatory Association.  Mike has given talks to numerous scientific organizations around the world, and this May will be giving our club a presentation on the rich history of the Mount Wilson Observatory which spans well over a century.  His talk will include a slideshow of historic images, showing turn of the century vehicles and machines, how an observatory came to a 5700-foot mountaintop in 1904, and the many famous faces like Einstein and Hubble who made important scientific discoveries while working at Mount Wilson.

This is a fascinating presentation and is an excellent primer for our June 6th tour to the observatory itself.  Whether or not you will attend the tour, you won’t want to miss this program!



534A0537Meet at the Simmons home on May 1 for a light brunch before embarking on a memorable weekend trip to Santa Barbara! Our journey will take us along a relaxing 80-mile scenic route to Santa Barbara on Friday.  Saturday will include several activities including a special tour of Moss Motors, and finishing the night with a group dinner at a local restaurant.  We return home on Sunday morning.

NOTE: This is an RSVP event! Please contact Steve Simmons if you plan to attend.

April Recap: Three TCs made a showing at the Queen’s English Car Show, driven by Richard and Sandra Loe, Mel and Toni Appell, and Malcolm and Joyce Buckeridge.
