Late April

Posted by Steve Simmons on April 12, 2018



Julian Double Day Event Announced For May

A weekend trip to Julian has been arranged for May 30 – June 1.  Make your hotel reservations by April 30 to ensure you get a room and the special discounted rate!  See the Calendar Page for more information.

2018 Conclave Dates Announced

Our annual conclave with Abingdon Rough Riders will take place October 12-14 at Narrow Gauge Inn in Fish Camp, near Yosemite. Our host hotel is now full but there are rooms available at our overflow location at “Best Western Yosemite Gateway Inn” in Oakhurst. Contact Allan Chalmers for further information.



After the hugely successful premiere of our “All Things New” program last year, we have decided to bring it back around for another go in 2018.  Join us on May 22, where members are encouraged to bring stories, items for show and tell or anything “new”.  This can include projects on your TC or other items of interest but they do not have to be car-related.  Vacation stories, birthdays or your fancy new hat would also suffice!  See what your fellow club members are up to with their TCs, and lives in general.  This is a great chance to learn something new and catch up with old friends!

Our participants so far include:

  • Curt Sorensen on his TC restoration
  • Steve Simmons on “various gizmos of historical interest”

Sign up by contacting Curt Sorensen to let him know you would like to participate!  Watch for a flyer in the mail with further details.  Contact Steve Simmons or Curt Sorensen with any questions or special needs.

April Recap: 27 members plus 1 guest were present for our April meeting.  Three TCs driven by Loe, Simmons and Einhorn were parked outside.  Special thanks go to Sandra Loe who gave a unique and interesting presentation!

For more meeting and event information, visit the Calendar Page.



Take a trip to the quaint mountain town of Julian, California, located in the beautiful Cuyamaca mountains of Northeastern San Diego County. Founded during the gold rush of the 1870’s, Julian has retained much of its old west charm and will be our home for two nights of TCs and camaraderie. See where gold was discovered, sample Julian’s famous apple pie, shop stores housed in historic buildings dating back to the 1870’s, hike and picnic amid oaks and pines, sample Julian’s famous apple pie, or ride down Main Street in a horse-drawn carriage. And did we mention the apple pie? 

We arrive on Wednesday afternoon and settle in for an “on your own” evening of dinner and shopping. Thursday’s activities will include a scenic drive to Borrego Springs for lunch, and a group dinner in Julian. Friday will feature a TC lineup and group photo before departing for home.  Don’t miss this special event, so book your room today!  (and have some pie)

Hotel reservations must be made by April 30 to guarantee a room.  For hotel reservation info, schedule of activities, etc, see the April newsletter or the flyer which will be showing up in your mailbox when we get closer to the event. For further information, contact Gorden Bundy, June Wennekamp, Richard Loe, or Sandra Loe

April Recap: 14 members and guests and four TCs took part in our Halfway House Brunch.  TCs were driven by Loe, Simmons, Einhorn and one guest.  See the upcoming newsletter for more details.
