Late February

Posted by Steve Simmons on February 10, 2018


One Of Our Own Remembered
Bob & Annabel Goldstein

Annabel and Bob Goldstein

We were just informed of the passing of Annabel Goldstein.  She had been in fragile health for some time and passed on February 18th.  Annabel and her late husband Bob, who we lost in 2012, were very active members of TCMG for many years.

Services are being held at the same location as Bob’s:

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 1pm
Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary
6001 W Centinela Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90045

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. Further information on activities and hotel rates will be announced here when they are available.



Our next meeting will be held on February 27 in Studio City. The evening’s guest speaker will be TCMG member Mel Appell, who along with his wife Toni will be giving a special multimedia presentation about their power cruising adventures across the ocean.

You won’t want to miss these thrilling highlights…

  • See exiting destinations including Alaska and the Gallapegos Islands!
  • Watch Mel squeeze himself into areas of the boat smaller than his waistline!
  • Learn what it takes to endure these adventures, and why it’s a bad idea to leave unprepared!

January Recap: 24 members plus one guest were present for our January meeting.  Special thanks to Gene Olson for hosting another great game night.  The women’s team, still reeling from last years’s upset, took back their crown by once again defeating the men.

On Sunday, March 11 we visit Andres Pico Adobe, named for Pio Pico (Pico Blvd) built in 1834 and one of the oldest adobe structures in Los Angeles. For those who come hungry, we start our day with lunch at a nearby restaurant before caravanning to the Adobe. Once there, we’ll enjoy a private guided tour of the various structures on the grounds.

In addition to the adobe, we will see an original 1904 redwood structure from Isaac Lankershim’s (Lankershim Blvd) ranch, which used to cover half of the San Fernando Valley. Some of the original furnishings from the Lankershim Ranch offices are displayed, including an ornately-carved desk and a scale used to weigh the output from the Lankershim gold mine in California.

We will also explore a 1914 Southern Pacific Railroad flagman’s shanty which was used at the intersection of Maclay Street and the tracks in San Fernando until 1948. Today it showcases railroad memorabilia.

Meet at 11:30 AM for lunch at Bear Pit BBQ in Mission Hills, in business since the 1940’s.  The restaurant opens at 11:30 and is located at 10825 Sepulveda Blvd, Mission Hills, CA 91345. We depart for the Adobe, which is located just down the street, at 12:45 for our 1PM tour.

February Recap: Our first outing of the year, the 2018 Lame Duk Kup, saw two TCs make a showing driven by Loe and Simmons.  A ferocious battle was waged between the various teams with top honors going the the Simmons, who took home the coveted brass duck trophy.  See the upcoming newsletter for more details.
