Early August

Posted by Steve Simmons on July 29, 2020


August Meeting Is Now Online

Our August meeting has been moved online in order to comply with COVID-19 social distancing regulations.  See below for details.

Upcoming Activity Cancellations

Because the safety of our members is our primary concern, several of our planned upcoming activities have been cancelled due to concerns over the COVID-19 virus.

  • Our general meeting August 25 has been changed from in-person to online.
    See below for details.
  • The Einhorn hot dog party in August has been cancelled, and a social distancing event has taken its place. See the Calendar Page for details.

Other upcoming activities may also be postponed or cancelled depending on what happens with the continued virus situation. Check this website for the latest updates and status of other upcoming TCMG activities.



Our meeting on August 25th will be held online using the Zoom application.  The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM PDT.  You can participate using any computer or device with the free Zoom software installed.  If you require assistance installing Zoom, contact Steve Simmons or David Edgar.

The evening’s program is “Shared Memories”.  Everyone can participate in sending a photo (please ID people in photo if possible, approximate date and location/event). The photos selected are meant to stimulate memories for everyone, whether it is of the same event or of something similar they also attended. If you wish to share one of your memories or favorite photo or of a recent photo with a grandchild in the car, please send to Joyce Edgar by August 20, 2020 via email.

We can digitize a printed photo or slide if you want to send an original media (we will return the item), just send early as they take significantly more time for use to utilize.

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

June recap: 31 members attended our July virtual (online) meeting.  Five TCs drove a “simulated journey” to the meeting.  Those TCs were driven by Edgar, Hunsberger, Loe, Simmons and Zucca.

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



Our August “social distancing” event will be a self guided drive in your TC between August 1st and the 16th. The weather is perfect for an evening toot to your favorite local restaurant. You may not feel comfortable stopping to eat, but take a picture with your TC in front and submit it with a short paragraph explaining why it is your “go to” eating place. It could be because it is the popular neighborhood hangout or maybe it’s a hole-in-the-wall with excellent food.

To participate, email your photo and description to newsletter editor David Edgar by August 16th.  To qualify for Sargent points, you are on your honor to drive your TC at least 10 miles and to submit an unaltered photograph with your paragraph.

July Recap: 13 TCs participated in our July “Historical Hunt” event.  Those who brought out their TCs were: Chalmers, Eicher, Edgar, Einhorn, Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe, Page, Pulver, Simmons, Spiegel, Sullivan and Zucca.
